With the Formula 1 World Championship race now over, the question now is in regards how many points Verstappen is going to rack up between now and the end of the season. There are 8 races remaining in the season, so there are still plenty of betting opportunities to come, but are you prepared to bet against Verstappen at this point or are you simply going to ride with him the rest of the way? We will talk more about his accomplishments in a moment, but let’s now look ahead to the weekend and the Singapore Grand Prix, which will go off on Sunday. The odds are out for this one and are about what you would expect given what has gone down to this point in the season. Let’s take a look at those F1 odds and how the Singapore Grand Prix might play out.

If you go back a couple of years to the first time that Verstappen won an F1 championship, in a controversial fashion, you see that he ended that season with 395.5 points. He went on to shatter that total last season, winning it all again and amassing 454 points. Right now, with 8 races still to come, he has 364 points, so it’ more than fair to suggest that he is going to surpass his 2022 total. Verstappen is on a run that has seen him win 10 straight races, with the odds suggesting that #11 will come this weekend in Singapore. After all, there are only 2 races he hasn’t won all year, and he finished 2nd in both of those. If you fancy betting against him, this might be the race, as he finished 7th here last year.

The Rest of the Pack
If we are to assume that Verstappen is once again going to roll to victory in Singapore, then we need to start talking about who else might land on the podium. The bookies have Verstappen’s Red Bull teammate, Sergio Perez (+870), as the 2nd favorite here, which is no real surprise when you consider that he won the 2 races where his teammate failed to take the checkered flag. Given that Perez won this race last season, you might want to consider taking him for the upset, or at least a podium finish.
It has been a staggering return to form for Fernando Alonso (+1775) this season. He won back-to-back championships in 2005 and 2006, and while he got close a couple of times after that, it did look as though time had caught up with him. He is very much a longshot to win here, but he might be worth a podium wager.
Finally, we have to take a look at Lewis Hamilton (+1775), even though his winless streak has now reached a point that is very much not what we have been used to seeing from him. More importantly, though, he is also now on a run that has seen him fail to land on the podium in 4 straight races, and when you consider that he finished 9th in Singapore last season, it would be something of a risk to throw money in his direction this weekend.
