STAVELOT, Belgium - The Belgian Grand Prix starts early Sunday - at 9:00 a.m. EST, so bettors need to get their bets in quickly!

The Grand Prix odds are up on the major online sportsbooks already, and this column will examine some of the futures bets!

To begin with, let’s take a look at the overall odds, which are, unsurprisingly, dominated by Lewis Hamilton.

Belgian Grand Prix Winner

  • Lewis Hamilton -275
  • Max Verstappen +330
  • Valtteri Bottas +550
  • Daniel Ricciardo +4000
  • Alexander Albon +6600
  • Esteban Ocon +6600
  • Sergio Perez +10000

Hamilton is not only the most dominant driver in the field, he’s the odds on favorite to win the entire thing, with massive -275 odds over the rest of the field.

He set a blistering pace during the qualifiers, finishing in 1:41.252, a full half-second ahead of the next closest lap, by his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas.

Given that both Hamilton and Bottas are at the very top of the oddsboards, this is also a good time to examine the odds for which team will win.

Belgian Grand Prix - Winning Car

  • Mercedes -450
  • Red Bull Racing +300
  • Renault +2500
  • Racing Point +6600
  • McLaren +8000
  • AlphaTauri +25000
  • Ferrari +35000
  • Alfa Romeo +150000
  • Haas +150000
  • Williams +150000

Between Bottas and Hamilton, Mercedes has -450 odds to be the winning car, while Red Bull Racing, which features Max Verstappen – second place behind Hamilton in the F1 standings - at +300.

Alexander Albon also lends his personal +6600 odds to the Red Bull team, which buoys them a bit.

Verstappen himself has +330 odds to win the entire race, which befits his position as the second-best driver on the circuit right now.

Most of the futures odds follow a similar pattern - Hamilton, then Verstappen, then Bottas. This pattern is, of course, the pattern of the standings, with Hamilton in first, Verstappen in second, but far behind, and Bottas quite close to Verstappen.

All of the wagers are influenced by this. For example, take a look at the following wager.

Grid Position Of Winner

  • Pole Position -275
  • 3rd Or 4th Place +300
  • 2nd Place +550
  • 5th To 7th Place +4000
  • 8th To 13th Place +6600
  • Any Other Position +25000

Obviously pole position is an advantage, but it normally wouldn’t be a -275 advantage. In this race, of course, Lewis Hamilton starts in pole position, which affects these odds - this is effectively a bet on Hamilton.

Similarly, in second place is Bottas, while third and fourth place is Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo, respectively.

Understanding the context of these racing bets is important to any aspiring F1 bettor, and the best of luck to those that try!
