Formula 1 Betting By Numbers
Winning Driver, Podium Finish and Top Six Finish betting markets, and today it's the turn of the Top Ten Finish market.
For the benefit of anyone new to this blog, the following 'Betting Proft' chart shows the profit you would have made if you'd bet £1 on the same driver for a top ten finish at every Grand Prix during 2013:
|Top 10 Finish||Profit*||Winning Bet|
|Paul Di Resta||2.06||4|
|Rest Of The Field||-5.00||0|
* Please note, even in the few days before first practise, the odds can sometimes vary slightly, so I've generally tried to take the odds a few days before each Grand Prix as soon as the market opened on SkyBet.
As you can see, Paul Di Resta has been the bet to go for in this market, consistently placing in the points scoring positions at every Grand Prix bar Malaysia when wheel nut issues caused his retirement early in the race.
Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel have also been solid bets, although obviously any winnings aren't going to break the bank as in recent races they've been priced at a very slim 1.14.
Daniel Ricciardo is the other noteworthy bet, and he's perhaps the bet to go for if you're prepared to take more of a risk in the hope of better returns, as for his points scoring finishes at China and Spain he was priced at a fairly decent 3.25 and 2.75 respectively.
Here's an infographic based on the data from the above 'Betting Profit' chart:
Before we head into Monaco, I'll be analysing a few more formula 1 betting markets tomorrow in one final 'Betting Profit' round-up.
