WRC Rally Croatia Betting Favorites, Analysis & Prediction

WRC Rally Croatia Betting Favorites, Analysis & Prediction

This season in the WRC, we will have a total of 13 races to look forward to. There are already 3 of them in the books, with the battle for top spot just about as close as it can possibly be. The leader of the pack is a bit of an anomaly, which is something that we will get to in a moment. This weekend, we will see the action shift to Croatia for the 4th round of racing, with the chasing pack looking to make things even closer at the top, if that is even possible. This should be another exciting rally, and there are several drivers that need to be considered potential winners, so let’s take a look at who they might be to consider in your WRC Rally betting.

Sebastien Ogier

We said a moment ago that the leader was a bit of a strange one, although we also need to say that it is not totally unexpected. Ogier dominated this sport for close to a decade, winning the World Championship in 8 of 9 seasons before announcing his retirement after the 2021 season. He reversed that decision somewhat, running in a few races last year and still managing to finish 6th overall. He has plans to do the same this season, but even though he skipped the Swedish Rally, he is still on top after winning the 2 other races he started this season. He won the last time he raced in Croatia in 2021.

Thierry Neuville

There are few drivers who have been as consistent as Neuville during his time with the WRC. In fact, had it not been for the dominance of Ogier, the Belgian would probably have a championship or two of his own. As it is, he is still looking for that elusive first World Championship, but if Ogier does indeed skip races as planned, this might well be the year for Neuville. He has landed on the podium in all 3 races this season, and we can probably expect more of the same in Croatia, where he finished 3rd in each of his last 2 races there.

Kalle Rovanpera

As we mentioned at the top of this piece, things are tight in the driver standings right now, with just 4 points separating the top 3 drivers at the moment. Rovanpera is currently sitting in 3rd place on 52 points after the opening 3 races of the season. Of all the drivers in the WRC, he is probably under the most pressure, as he comes into the 2023 season after winning it all last year. He has yet to pick up his first win of the season, but given that he won in Croatia last year, maybe this is the weekend he breaks that goose egg.

Ott Tanak

It seems like a long time since Tanak upset the apple cart and stopped Ogier’s run of championship by winning it all in 2019. He has not been back to the top perch since then, but he is consistently in the mx all the way to the end. It looks as though it might be more of the same again this season, with Tanak currently sitting in 4th overall. A win in Sweden certainly helped his cause, and with a 2nd place finish in Croatia last year, we can probably expect him to challenge again this weekend.
