Motor Sports Betting Tips
Motor racing has been around for a long time, and you have been able to place a wager on the sport for just as long. There are a few tried and tested betting strategies to consider when placing your hard earned down on a race.
History Repeats Itself
There’s no secret that particular drivers have certain skills and thrive in better conditions than others. For this reason, you should research which drivers have excelled on certain tracks and in similar weather conditions before placing your bet. For example, Formula 1 driver Sebastian Vettel may have a fantastic record in Japan and a far less dominant record in the Great Britain GP. These trends are easy to track (excuse the pun) and are important to consider.
Likewise, certain manufacturers may perform better on individual circuits. Again using Formula 1 as an example, Mercedes outstripped their closest competitors Ferrari in terms of raw speed in the 2017 season, meaning they were far more successful on tracks with plenty of long straights, whereas Ferrari made up ground on the more technical circuits with tighter turns.
Don’t be put off by the number of drivers in the field. Just like in horse racing, the real long shots are no chance of winning so don’t waste your time. In NASCAR, names like Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch and Jimmie Johnson will always appear at the top of the standings, and are safe bets to consider when attempting to win big bets.
You Don’t Have To Pick A Winner
All of the major race meets listed above offer more than just race winner lines. You can select who you believe will appear on the podium, the top six or even the top ten in most races, meaning that there is an opportunity to really showcase your betting knowledge.
There was no better example than Canada’s Lance Stroll in last season’s Formula One. Despite placing well down in the rankings for the majority of the season, Stroll managed a podium finish at his home GP in Montreal, and punters who jumped on at huge odds would have reaped a huge reward.
MotoGP rider Andrea Iannone finished in the middle of the pack throughout the 2017 season, although a late form surge saw him collect three finishes in the top-six. If you followed the sport closely you would have seen this coming, and the odds on offer were fantastic leading into the final rounds.
