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

Written by on September 23, 2023

With the World Championship essentially in the books, the remainder of the Formula 1 season is all about individual races and trying to find a few where we might get a surprise. We did see a couple of streaks broken in the latest Grand Prix, which was held in Singapore. Max Verstappen saw his 10-race win streak come to an end, while Red Bull Racing lost their chance of a clean sweep on the season, with Carlos Sainz upsetting the apple cart in Singapore. This weekend, F1 will be in Japan for the next race on the schedule. This is the first of the 7 races remaining in the season, but you do have to wonder how it will play out. Will Verstappen take his foot off the gas and open the door for another driver or is he going to bounce back from a poor showing in Singapore to get back on the podium? Let’s check out the current F1 odds.

Max Verstappen

Given how things have gone this season, it was more than a little surprising to look at the winner’s podium in Singapore and not see Verstappen standing on there. It was, in fact, the first time he finished outside of the top 2 this season, while also snapping the 10-race winning streak that we discussed earlier. If truth be told, though, it really should not have come as a major surprise when you consider that the Singapore track also gave him problems last season, when he finished 7th in that race. The big question now is whether he can get back to winning ways in the Japanese Grand Prix. He won this race last year, so I would suggest that his chances look good.

Other Drivers to Consider

While Sergio Perez (+1300) is having his most successful season in terms of wins, with 2, it has been a minute since he last took a checkered flag. His last 2 in came in the 4th race of the season, and while he hasn’t won since, he has been on the podium 5 times since that last win. He finished 2nd in this race last season, so he is certainly worth a top 3 wager.

It has not been the best season for Lando Norris (+1425), who finds himself down in 8th in the driver standings. Norris has been better of late, though, and has been on the podium in 3 of the last 6 races, with all of those being 2nd place finishes. He just made the top 10 in Japan last season, but his current form suggests a better finish this time around.

The last driver that we are going to look at here is Lewis Hamilton (+2600), who is well off the pace he set when he was winning championships for fun. Despite the fact that he has not won a race in 2022 or 2023, he is still someone that I have a hard time ruling out completely in any race. He is coming off a podium finish last time out, and with a 5th place run in Japan last year, he might be a decent top 3 bet in this one.
