F1 Betting: Lewis Hamilton Favored To Win 7th Title In America

  • Lewis Hamilton has -120 odds as the betting favorite to win the USA Grand Prix.
  • Max Verstappen is close behind with +150 odds to win.
  • The defending champion, Valtteri Bottas has the third shortest odds at +1100.

AUSTIN, Texas – The Formula 1 drivers will be returning to the United States after the 2020 altered schedule missed the trip to America.

Lewis Hamilton (-120) Favored To Win Sixth Title In Austin

There are not many tracks in the world where Lewis Hamilton hasn’t had success, but the United States is certainly not one of them. Since the U.S. event moved to Austin, online sportsbooks have seen Hamilton cross the finish line first in five of the eight years. He’s favored to do so again.

USA Grand Prix

  • Lewis Hamilton -120
  • Max Verstappen +150
  • Valtteri Bottas +1100
  • Sergio Perez +1800
  • Charles Leclerc +4000
  • Lando Norris +4000
  • Carlos Sainz Jr +6600
  • Daniel Ricciardo +10000
  • George Russell +10000
  • Pierre Gasly +10000

Although Hamilton has had success, it hasn’t come in either of the last two years. By Hamilton’s standards, that’s a long drought. So for those who are trying to beat the favorite, who’s the best option?

Max Verstappen (+150): The Driver Standings Leader

In what should come as no surprise, Max Verstappen is Hamilton’s biggest threat. Verstappen is leading the driver’s standings and has finished second in each of the last two races.

Verstappen has been consistent this season and is seemingly always in contention for the chequered flag. Getting the standings leader at +120 odds may be worth betting on value alone. He finished third in the 2019 running of the event and second in 2018. It might be time for Verstappen to capture his first title on American soil.

Valtteri Bottas (+1100) A Viable Option

Valtteri Bottas is the defending champion of the event and is coming off of a win in Turkey two weeks ago. Sports betting sites have Bottas at +1100 and could be well worth the risk, especially in his recent form.

Since Bottas signed with Alfa Romeo, he’s seemingly stopped playing second-fiddle to Hamilton in the Mercedes camp. This can most easily be seen when he blatantly disobeyed orders to not go for the fastest lap so that Hamilton could earn an extra point in the standings.

A talented driver in the best car in the field with nothing to lose is a scary sight for the rest of the field, teammates included.

The race is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. EST on Sunday.
