WRC Rally Finland Betting Favorites, Analysis & Prediction

WRC Rally Finland Betting Favorites, Analysis & Prediction

There comes a point in every season, regardless of the sport in question, where the outcome starts to look inevitable. We have reached that point in the 2023 WRC season, with the lead at the top of the driver standings beginning to look more than a little insurmountable. There are, though, still 5 races to come, but you do have to wonder if anyone can come from off the pace to make a late run that would undoubtedly have to go down as an upset considering how things look at this late stage of the proceedings. This weekend, the drivers will be in Finland for the next rally on the schedule. Can someone take control here, or will be looking at things staying as they currently are? Let’s take a look at the current standings to consider in your WRC Rally betting odds.

Kalle Rovanpera

If you want to talk about consistency over the course of a long season, Rovanpera should be the first name out of your mouth. Through the 8 races that have already been run in 2023, Rovanpera has not finished any worse than 4th. It took him a moment to get his first win of the season, which, he managed in Portugal, but he quickly followed that up with another victory in Estonia, which was the most recent race on the WRC calendar. Overall, he has amassed 170 points, which has him 55 points up on the closest driver. Another win and this thing might be over. Rovanpera finished 2nd in Finland last year, so expect him to be in the mix.

Elfyn Evans

Realistically, there are really only 2 other drivers who have any type of shot at making the final few weeks of the season interesting in terms of the championship race. Evans is the closest to the leader, but as we mentioned earlier, he needs to make up 55 points over the next 5 races. Not only would he need to be as close to perfect as possible, he would also need Rovanpera to suddenly go cold. Evan does have a win this season, with that one coming in Croatia, but being forced to retire in Portugal hurt his cause. Evans won this rally in 2021, so don’t count him out this weekend.

Thierry Neuville

Neuville might well be the most likely challenger had he not been disqualified in Kenya a couple of races back, but he still has to be considered in the hunt for the championship. He finished 2nd in the race prior to the Kenyan Rally, and then failed to let the DQ bother him, as he ran out the winner in Estonia last time out. He is now on 112 points, just 3 back of Evans, but like the Welshman, he has some work to do if he is to put any pressure on the leader. Neuville finished 5th in Finland last season and will need better if he is to stay in the championship picture.

Ott Tanak

While technically still in the hunt, Tanak is sitting 66 points off the pace, which really does seem like a bridge too far at this late stage of the season. He did have a win in the early part of the season, but he has not really been much of a factor since then. Perhaps most disappointing was an 8th place finish in the Estonia Rally last time out, as we expected more from him on home soil. Don’t count him out here, though, as he did win in Finland last year.
