F1 odds have hit sportsbooks, as the 2022 schedule reaches one of the most exciting races of the year, the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, on Sunday morning. Max Verstappen will be hoping to actually cross the finish line this year after crashing with five laps to go in the 2021 race.

The latest Formula One odds predict he will in fact win this weekend and extend his lead in the Driver’s Championship standings over Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc.

Can Alfa Romeo Have A Trouble-Free Weekend?

The Azerbaijan Grand Prix has a little bit of everything. There are parts of the track so wide that three cars can run next to each other into a turn and parts that are extremely tight and twisty.

The main straight running alongside the Baku shoreline is phenomenal for passing. However, small mistakes can have big consequences on this track. Verstappen felt the brunt of that last year after crashing on lap 47 with a tire issue, giving Sergio Perez the victory.

One driver who is really trying to avoid mistakes this weekend is Alfa Romeo’s Valtteri Bottas. He believes the car has the potential to fight for spots at the front of the grid, but mistakes during practice and qualifying have prevented that from happening this season.

The Finn has had mixed success in Baku during his career. He won in Azerbaijan in 2019, lost the lead in 2018 after running into debris, and finished P2 in 2017.

Bottas is hoping that Alfa Romeo can move on from the slew of Friday mistakes it has had in past races to give the car the best chance to fight for points on Sunday.

“It’s crucial we can have a trouble-free weekend: we have been having some good results despite some Friday issues so far, and if we were to fix these, we could really see the full potential of our package.”

Despite having issues heading into races, Bottas has had six top-10 finishes this season.

After looking through the F1 odds board, I like Bottas at -175 in a head-to-head with Fernando Alonso at BetMGM for the race this weekend.

He has finished ahead of Alonso in five of the seven circuits so far, and I think this track layout gives him the opportunity to do so again on Sunday.

Taking A Look At Fastest Lap Odds

Although it is technically a street circuit, Baku has the longest straight in F1, meaning there is plenty of chances for high-speed passes that we typically don’t see on street circuits.

So far this season, the RB 18 has had amazing straight-line speed and low drag. Taking a look at the fastest lap odds, I like Red Bull at -140 to set the fastest lap at Azerbaijan at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Sergio Perez has had plenty of success at this track and Verstappen will look to avenge a brutal loss from last season.

If you think it will definitely be Max Verstappen’s Red Bull that earns the fastest lap award, you can get him at +120 to set the fastest lap at BetMGM Sportsbook.
