The Austrian MotoGP 2017, Betting Preview


The Red Bull Ring in Spielberg plays host to this weekend’s Austrian MotoGP on the 13th August.


It was an all-Spanish podium finish last week with Marc Marquez celebrating the victory and teammate Dani Pedrosa taking 2nd spot with Maverick Vinales completing the podium.  It was a wet track but Marquez switched earlier in the race from wet tyres to slicks and it was a gamble that paid off as he took his 3rd win of 2017.


Marquez is now 14 points ahead of Vinales in the Championship standings and he has shortened from 8/10 to 9/20 in the outright betting.

Race History 

Andrea Iannone celebrated his first victory in MotoGP at the 2016 Austrian MotoGP.  His team-mate Andrea Dovizioso was 2nd with Jorge Lorenzo completing the podium.


Suggested Bet: Lorenzo win at 5/1

The 2015 World Champion has not had a smooth transition to Ducati but things could well turn around for him his week on a circuit where the Ducati’s dominated last year. This is reflected in the betting where Dovizioso is the favourite but I am looking to his teammate to return to the sort for form we saw a couple of years ago.
