Azerbaijan Grand Prix Betting Tips & Preview
Bet Victor are going 2/7 (1.29) about a Safety Car being called into action at this weekend’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix around the streets of Baku. This will be the first and banker bet from our recommended Azerbaijan Grand Prix betting tips for this weekend’s F1 race in Baku.
If you watched last year’s race you would agree it is a gift of a price and you could expect to collect your winnings after just 20 seconds of racing. That’s because the opening bend is a 90 degree left-hander which leads into a short narrow straight before a second 90 degree turn. Chaos should ensue!
But this unique barrier lined circuit with an enormous straight six 90 degree corners and narrow passageways makes for an exciting spectacle and last year’s race was one of the most thrilling grand prix we have seen in a decade.
Short on finishers
In short, our best overall Azerbaijan Grand Prix betting tip for you is that this is definitely a race where you should look at opposing drivers as opposed to backing them.
Last year only 13 cars went the full race distance, so let’s set the ball rolling by heading to Bet Victor and taking the 8/11 (1.72) on offer about ‘Under 15.5 Finishers’.
Au Revoir Pierre
Our main Azerbaijan betting prediction is that there will be carnage at the opening bends and if that does occur it could easily be race ending.
Invariably it is the cars in the mid-field and backmarkers that normally get tagged in such accidents and incidents so the 12/1 (Betway) about Toro Rosso driver Pierre Gasly being the first retirement of the race is a bet.
The 22-year-old French driver is in his first full Formula 1 season and he has not raced here before in any formula. Given he is very unlikely to start the race any better than the mid-pack
Max Verstappen not to finish
But the best Baku F1 bet of all is the 10/3 (4.33) available at William Hill about Max Verstappen not finishing this race.
Firstly 35% of the starters can be expected to flounder and so no driver should be such a price.
Then factor in the Dutch driver’s ability to find his own accidents – like the one he caused in China last time. Add his poor record at street circuits and then look at the reliability of his car. It has failed to take him to the chequered flag in eight of his last 21 races.
