Australian Grand Prix favorites
Max Verstappen (+120)
After a worst-case-scenario week to open the season in Bahrain, Verstappen took his first victory of the new season at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, and did so in impressive fashion – starting from fourth on the grid behind both Ferrari and his Red Bull team-mate, Sergio Perez.
While Ferrari seem to have the quickest pace at the start of the season, Verstappen’s racing pace coupled with his championship experience paid off en route to a well-deserved victory.
He enters the week a small favorite of +120 over Charles Leclerc.
Charles Leclerc (+150)
Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc enters the week in the No. 2 spot, available at +150.
Leclerc started the year with a comfortable victory at the Bahrain Grand Prix and is proving to be the biggest threat to Max Verstappen’s title defense – currently holding a 45-25 lead in the Drivers’ Championship standings in two races. .
He finished second in Saudi Arabia behind Max but will be in contention for pole again this week with how fast Ferrari has been.
Carlos Sainz Jr. (+800)
Rounding out the Top 3, Leclerc’s teammate Carlos Sainz Jr is available to win at +800.
The young Spaniard is second in the Drivers’ standings behind Leclerc and already has two podiums to his name in the new Ferrari.
