Betting Pick For 2019 F1 United States Grand Prix

Betting Pick For 2019 F1 United States Grand Prix
All but three races remain in the Formula One 2019 World Championship calendar, meaning a lot is riding on the upcoming United States Grand Prix on November 3. Here's a complete preview to the big day, including betting odds, best-value tips, and a free expert pick!

Formula 1 odds are out for the United States Grand Prix and the three betting favorites are as follows:

  • Lewis Hamilton (+300)
  • Max Verstappen (+325)
  • Sebastian Vettel (+375)

Before we give out our free betting pick, a friendly reminder that there's an abundance of bonus offers available throughout the web. Online sportsbooks are dangling free money in front of you and who doesn't like that? Taking advantage of these promotions can really net you a big payout!  

All Eyes On Hamilton 

It should come as no surprise that Hamilton has the best Formula 1 betting odds 2019 entering race day. He's atop the 2019 Drivers Standings with 363 points — 74 points ahead of runner-up Valtteri Bottas, his teammate on Mercedes. 

Only 78 points are available in the remainder of the season, meaning Hamilton could lock up his sixth F1 Drivers Championship on Sunday with a win or strong performance. If he does, he'd be fulfilling early season predictions that pegged him with the best Formula 1 championship odds

Returning to the Circuit of the Americas suits Hamilton greatly here. Seven times he's competed at the US Grand Prix and five times he's finished number one. He won four in a row between 2013 and 2017, before a third-place finish a year ago. 

After a win at last week's Mexico Grand Prix, Hamilton is a four-point finish ahead of Bottas away from title number six, which would move him into second-place all-time in Formula One history. The record is seven courtesy of Michael Schumacher.

We'd love to say this championship race isn't over, but it is quite frankly. If Hamilton finishes seventh in Austin, the title is guaranteed.

Heck, even an eighth-place finish and the fastest lap bonus point would net the Brit number six. Bottas needs to win the Grand Prix, along with an outside top-10 place for Hamilton, to set up any kind of drama at the following Brazilian Grand Prix (the second-to-last race of the year). 

Our money is on Hamilton to win the F1 Drivers Championship with an outright win at the Grand Prix Americas. He's won this event more times than anyone else (one ahead of Schumacher) and with a title clearly in his sights, Hamilton should kick it up an extra notch (if that's somehow even possible for him). 

When it's all said and done, Hamilton will likely be considered the G.O.A.T. (greatest of all time) in Formula One. This will just end up being another chapter in a storied career that still has plenty of miles ahead of it. 

Betting prediction: Hamilton (+300)

Other Racers In The Hunt

Say you're one of those bettors that absolutely hates picking the favorite and needs to go with an underdog. If you fall into such category, here are some names that deserve your attention: 

  • Charles Leclerc (+375)
  • Valtteri Bottas (+400)
  • Alexander Albon (+600)

After these three names, there's a steep dropoff in betting lines. The next competitor with the best F1 US Grand Prix odds to win comes in at a whopping +6600. 

We've mentioned Bottas name already, but it bears repeating here. He's put together a mighty fine season in the shadow of teammate Hamilton and it wouldn't surprise us to see him squeak out a victory in Austin. 

He's certainly trending upward. At the Japanese Grand Prix a few weeks ago, he claimed first place. Then at the Mexico Grand Prix, he placed third with a caveat.

Bottas was involved in a final-corner crash, one that actually sent him to the medical center. The incident reduced the front-end of his Mercedes to rubble and debris. If not for that crash, who is to say Bottas couldn't have won?   

We think Botas is a good "insurance" bet. Again, we're all in on Hamilton. But if you must bet with an underdog, Botas is the pick to make. After finishing fifth in the standings in 2018, the Fin driver has taken the next step this season. 

Insurance bet to make: Botas (+400)
