After several cancellations and postponements, finally this year’s MotoGP season will start next weekend in Jerez, Spain. In the shortened season there are only 13 races in the schedule so far, with double weekends in 5 circuits. Though six-time world champion Marc Marquez is still the favorite in the MotoGP 2020 winner odds, it will be a new situation for him as well.
Following the start of other motorsports like Nascar, Indycar and Formula 1, the MotoGP season is also following their samples and will begin the season. It has a totally different calendar now, after the cancellation of 8 races while the fate of four other events are still in question. Riders can race for sure in 13 races with double racing weekends in Jerez, Spielberg, San Marino, Alcaniz and Valencia. It’s hard to predict how everyone will react and perform in the new circumstances, especially young riders. Routine must help Marquez, Dovizioso, and the other more experienced riders. Let’s see who are the favorites in this new season.
MotoGP 2020 winner odds predict a 7th title for Spanish genius
Online sportsbooks in Spain believe that their local hero, Marc Marquez can deliver and win his 7th MotoGP world championship title. He has the odds of 1.55 at 1xBet to get his record. Marquez is still only 27 years old, but he has already won six times in the top category. Plus he has a title in the smaller, 125cc and Moto2 categories as well. He was absolutely dominant in the last few seasons, it’s enough to look at the final result table. He won 151 points ahead of second-place Andrea Dovizioso. With one more title Marquez can catch the legend of the sport, Valentino Rossi, so surely he will be motivated to try to win this season again.
One of his biggest rivals can be a young French rider, Fabio Quartararo who debuted in MotoGP last year. And it was a great first year, after finishing 5th place in the overall ranking with 7 podium finishes in the season. Who would have thought that Quartararo would have such a great start in the toughest category, after finishing only in 10th and 13th places in the smaller categories. Well, now he is in the top favorites to fight with Marquez for the title, according to the MotoGP 2020 winner odds.
Other rivals include old warriors like Dovizioso and Rossi
Andrea Dovizioso finished behind Marquez last year and he is regarded in the top riders for this season as well. Provided he can recover from his latest cross motor accident and be on the start line next weekend. The Ducati rider hasn’t renewed his contract yet, so it might be his last season before taking a break. The Italian has finished as runner-up in the last three years behind Marquez. But now even his second place can be in danger from the younger generation.
Like another Spanish rider, Maverick Vinales who finished in third place last season. The former Moto3 world champion was the rookie of the year in his debut MotoGP season in 2015. Since then he finished twice in 4th and twice in 3rd place as one of the most reliable and fastest riders. Online gambling sites in Spain are offering the odds of 6.00 at 1xBet for his title victory.
While the legend of the sport, 7-time world champion Valentino Rossi is still competing for Yamaha as teammate of Vinales in a year which might be his last with the team. But after so much success, he only got two podium finishes last year, finishing 7th at the end which was his worst performance since 2011. Now another title would be a small miracle which has the odds of 26.00 on 1xBet.
