Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix Odds Favorites, Betting Analysis and Picks

Formula 1 drivers don’t really understand the concept of taking their foot off the gas and enjoying the ride, but we have reached the point of the current F1 season where 2-time champion Max Verstappen could very easily do that if he wanted to. We will get into that in a moment when we break down his season, but there is a bigger picture to look at here. While the championship race is over, there are still several Grand Prix weekends still to come, which means betting opportunities for motor sports fans. The question here is whether to ride with Verstappen the rest of the way or look for spots where he may be vulnerable, and you can cash in on another driver. The first opportunity to do that comes this weekend with the Belgian Grand Prix, so let’s take a look to consider in your F1 betting odds.

Max Verstappen

You need only look at the odds to see how the bookies believe that Verstappen has become almost unbeatable. This should not come as a surprise to anyone who has even a passing interest in the sport given that the 2-time defending champion is head and shoulders above every other driver in Formula 1. It’s amazing enough that he has now won 7 straight races, but he has also won 9 of 11 overall this season, while finishing 2nd in the other 2 races. In fact, Red Bull Racing has made a clean sweep of the season to this point, with Sergio Perez winning the other two. It seems impossible to bet against Verstappen now, and even more so when you consider that he has won 2 in a row in Belgium.

Betting Pick: -359 | Bet Max Verstappen to Win Today

Lando Norris

You have to dig pretty deep to try and find reasons why another driver might rise up and win a race ahead of Verstappen. Norris is in as the 2nd favorite this weekend, well behind the champ, which may come as a surprise given what he has done this season. Dig a little deeper, though, and you will see that Norris is of Belgian descent. Yes, it’s a flimsy reason to wager on a driver, but perhaps he will want to honor his Belgian mother by winning in here home country. More realistic, though, is to take Norris to land on the podium, as he has finished 2nd in each of the last 2 races and appears to be in very decent form.

Betting Pick: +960 | Bet Lando Norris to Win Today

Hamilton and Perez

These two drivers are very close in terms of odds, so let’s put them together and take a closer look. Hamilton is in at odds of +1225 for the Belgian, Grand Prix, as he looks to win his first race since the 2021 season. That is a huge stretch of time since his last win, and he and Mercedes now look well off the pace. Sergio Perez (+1250) has cooled off dramatically after a strong start to the season and is now very much living in the shadow of his Red Bull Racing teammate. Both Hamilton and Perez are very good drivers, but are you willing to wager on either of them beating Verstappen at this point?

Betting Pick: Perez +1250 / Hamilton +1225 | Bet F1 to Win Today
