The MotoGP of the Americas, Race Preview


The MotoGP moves to Austin, Texas this weekend with the venue being the Circuit of the Americas.  We take a look at the race from a betting perspective.

Marc Marquez won the Argentina Grand Prix two weeks ago, over 9 seconds ahead of runner-up Valentino Rossi who had a race-long battle with Andrea Dovizioso who climbed on to the bottom step of the podium.


Marquez leads Dovizioso by 4 points in the Riders standings and he is as short as 2/11 to defend his title.

Prices correct at time of posting but will change in the lead up to the race and there are a number of other markets on offer.


Marquez celebrated his sixth successive victory in Austin, Texas last year when he won the MotoGP of the Americas.  Vinales took second podium position with Iannone holding on for 3rd.

Suggested Bet: Andrea Dovizioso win at 15/2 

If you are rubbing your eyes at the 1/3 on offer about Marquez in the usually competitive MotoGP it is because he loves this track and has won an incredible 6 on the trot here. That being said I cannot take such a short price and I will have a bet that Dovizioso improves on the 2 podium places he has got here recently.
