European Grand Prix Picks
The Formula 1 Series holds the first European Grand Prix in nearly three years on Sunday morning. Here are some drivers we like to contend for the victory.
The European Grand Prix takes place on Sunday at 9AM ET from Baku City Circuit. The race is a 190-mile contest that will run 51 laps around the track. It is the first time this race is being held since 2012. According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Lewis Hamilton is a -110 favorite to win this race. Other short odds to win are Nico Rosberg (+220) and Sebastian Vettel (+500).
Lewis Hamilton is on a hot streak, winning back-to-back races. He seems to have shaken off his slow start to the season and now focused on catching Rosberg in the point standings. Look for him to be the man to beat again on Sunday.
Nico Rosberg is right there with Hamilton in most cases, but has slipped up his last few races. Still, he has a series-best four wins this year and was the likely winner when Hamilton wasn’t winning in 2015. Look for him to be right in the mix again this weekend.
Kimi Raikkonen is a long shot with +4000 odds, but there is reason to believe he can get the win on Sunday. He finished second in this race when it was last run in 2012 and he already has a pair of runner-up finishes this year. Raikkonen has been having a good year when you don’t compare him to Hamilton or Rosberg, so look for him to push for a win on Sunday.
