Are Marc Marquez’s odds to win the Austrian Moto Grand Prix Moto GP fair?
-25000 are awful odds. But, they might just be fair because Marc Marquez hasn’t just beaten his opponents in the past couple of Moto GP events, he’s dominated.
At the German Moto Grand Prix on July 7, Marquez finished the race in 41:38.276. He beat his closest competitor, Maverick Vinales, by 4.587 seconds. That’s an eternity in motorbike racing. Then in the last event, the Czech Republic Moto GP, Marquez dominated again.
He didn’t beat Andrea Dovizioso as badly as he beat Vinales in Germany. He still won comfortably. Marquez finished in 39:24.43. Dovizioso finished behind by 2.452 seconds.
Both the German and Czech Moto Grand Prix events show how dominant Marc Marquez is. So, yes, -25000 odds are fair. However, backing Marquez at those odds isn’t necessarily smart. Marquez finished second at both the Dutch TT and the Italian GP. He can be beaten. Will he? Probably not, but at the odds we should still consider a no bet.
Which driver among Dovizioso, Rins, Petrucci, and Vinales has the best shot of winning the race on Sunday?
You can pretty much throw a dart and hope for the best if you’re looking to beat Marquez on Sunday. Since we love darts, we’re willing to do that!
Of the four drivers offering the four lowest odds after Marquez, no doubt, Andrea Dovizioso deserves the longest look. Dovizioso finished third behind Marquez and Jorge Lorenzo at the 2018 Austrian GP. Not only that, but at the Czech Republic Moto Grand Prix last Sunday, he finished second behind Marquez.
If Marquez stumbles Dovizioso should be there to pick up the pieces. He’s got a better shot of upsetting Marquez than +2800, that’s for sure.
Is there a driver +30000 odds or higher that has any shot of winning the Austrian Moto Grand Prix?
Valentino Rossi offers +30000 odds. Although the likelihood of Rossi actually winning are probably around 30,000 to 1, just like his odds, he does have 90 points on the Moto GP Standings. Rossi finished sixth in the Czech Republic. He finished eighth in Germany. So, there’s a good chance Marquez beats him by 8 to 10 seconds.
But if Moto GP handicappers are looking for an underdog offering massive odds who has a moonshot chance at the Austrian Moto GP, that driver could be Valentino Rossi. He’s got as much of a shot as anyone. Plus, he finished sixth at the 2018 Austrian Moto GP. That might put him within shouting distance here.
