Malaysian Grand Prix Odds
The Formula 1 Series returns to action this weekend with the running of the Malaysian Grand Prix. Here’s a look at the odds to win this race.
The Malaysian Grand Prix takes place Sunday at 3AM ET from Sepang International Circuit. The race is a 193-mile contest that will run 56 laps around the track. According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Lewis Hamilton is the slight favorite to win this race, as he has -110 odds. Other short odds to win are Sebastian Vettel (+150) and Valtteri Bottas (+550).
Lewis Hamilton has won this race just one time, taking the win in 2014. Hamilton has taken over the points lead thanks to three straight wins. He now has seven wins for the 2017 season.
Vettel is a four-time winner of this race, last claiming the victory in 2015. Vettel was leading the point standings for most of the season but has fallen behind due to Hamilton’s big surge and Vettel having to retire in the last race. He has four wins this year, but just one in his last eight events.
Bottas has never won this race. He finished fifth a year ago. Bottas sits a distant third in the point standings. He has two wins on the year and four runner-up finishes. He has finished in the top 5 in all but two races this year.
