Hamilton has opened with 9/4 odds to win according to the online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com. Other short odds are Sebastian Vettel (13/4), Jenson Button (5/1), and Rubens Barrichello (5/1).

Hamilton is coming off a win in the Singapore Grand Prix last weekend which moved him to sixth in the points standings. Hamilton has two wins on the year and finished in the top two in three of the last five races.

Vettel is third in the standings, 25 points behind Button for the lead. Vettel has finished in the top 10 in the last three races and has two wins on the year.

Button leads Barrichello by 15 points in the standings and has finished in the top 10 in all but one race this year. Button has six wins on the season but has not won since June 7.

Barrichello has won two of the last four races to climb into second place and like Button, has only finished outside the top 10 in one race.

The Japanese Grand Prix will take place Sunday, Oct. 4 at 1AM ET. For complete odds and track information on this year’s event, see below.
