Formula One Odds
When it comes to Formula One odds, there are two main markets for punters to get involved in. Punters looking for a bet that will last the whole of the nine-month Formula One season may want to focus on the outright markets, while markets relating to each individual race are on offer in the race markets.
Knowledge is power in the outright Formula One odds markets
With the Formula One season running over 20 races from the Australian Grand Prix to the Brazilian Grand Prix, there is certainly a vast amount of time for the tables for both the drivers’ and constructors’ championship to change. However, punters with an intuition or expert knowledge on the strength of each individual car can benefit from far better Formula One odds ahead of the opening race of the season. Although, it could be a much safer bet to wait for four or five races to be completed before placing such a Formula One bet, even if a payout is likely to be less.
More choice in Formula One race markets
Although the obvious Formula One bet on race day is which driver will take the chequered flag, there are many others that could appeal. The main drivers including Sebastian Vettel, Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso may be the favourites to win a race, but there is no guarantee they will finish, with breakdowns or accidents always at risk of happening.
Therefore, some of the lesser-known or slower drivers may have a chance of finishing on the podium. Other popular Formula One odds markets include which driver will start on pole, which driver will set the fastest lap of a particular race or whether they finish in the top ten.
