Formula 1, Canadian Grand Prix, Betting Preview


The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal hosts the Canadian Formula 1 Grand Prix on Sunday and we take a look at it from a betting angle.

Daniel Ricciardo celebrated his second win of the season and his maiden Monaco Grand Prix victory two weeks ago despite having had mid-race issues with his engine.  He was under pressure from Sebastian Vettel who joined him on the podium in 2nd place with Lewis Hamilton finishing 3rd.

Hamilton leads Vettel by 14 points in the Driver’s Championship standings with Ricciardo climbing from 5th to 3rd spot and there is little change to the betting with Hamilton firm at 5/10 to win the title

Suggested Bet: Hamilton win at 13/10

It is hard to argue with Hamilton being a firm favourite here and his form in this race is exceptional. I am happy to take the 13/10 especially given the World Sports Betting “Money Back” Promo for 2nd place – see details on the banner below.
