United States Grand Prix Picks
The Formula 1 Series competes in the United States Grand Prix later today. Here are some drivers we like to contend for the win today.
The United States Grand Prix takes place today at 3PM ET from the Circuit of the Americas. The race is a 191-mile contest that will run 45 laps around the track. According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, both Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg are co-favorites to win, as each has +115 odds. Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen each have +1000 odds to win.
Lewis Hamilton is a four-time winner of this race and the two-time defending champion. With him trailing Rosberg by 33 points, he needs wins and a little luck to claim the series title once again. Hamilton has six wins this year and can easily make it No. 7 today.
Nico Rosberg has a series-best nine wins in 2016, but he has yet to win this year. While he would prefer to keep Hamilton from getting the win, it is important for him to stay out of trouble and finish well. Certainly he should be a top contender to win, especially if Hamilton doesn’t, but I give Hamilton a slight edge for this race.
Max Verstappen has no chance to win the F1 series championship, but he can continue his strong 2016 finishes. He has one win on the year and has finished second in the last two races. He placed fourth in this race last year.
