The MotoGP is the world’s premier motorcycle racing event organized and regulated by FIM (Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme). It is the world’s oldest motorcycle championship featuring purpose-built machines (four-stroke engines) unavailable for the general public. The motorcycles used in MotoGP are also not allowed to be ridden on public roads.
The MotoGP is divided into three classes – the premier event MotoGP, Moto 2, and Moto 3. The championship features 19 races in total, with the highest number (12) held in Europe, four being held in Asia, two in the Americas and only once race in Oceania.
The MotoGP Championship features two categories for the title – rider and constructors champion determined by a points system. The current reigning champion is Marc Marquez who won the title last year in front of Andrea Dovizioso. The Spaniard is leading the top of the rider’s standings this season as well and is the main favourite for winning the championship two years in a row and for the fifth time in his career.
The current team champion is Marquez’s team, Repsol Honda, with Honda also being the reigning constructor’s champion. Although it seems that Marquez is on his way to a fifth title, there are many races until the end, and with great riders such as Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Dovizioso on Marquez’s trail, we’re surely in for an exciting season.
Although launched only a few months ago as Mansion Group’s first venture into the world of online sports betting, MansionBet is already building quite a reputation for itself. Featuring a nice collection of sports and a variety of sporting markets you can wager on, MansionBet is becoming a favourite of thousands of UK punters who are interested in the bookie’s attractive special offers and competitive odds.
Besides popular British sports such as horse racing, MansionBet gives punters the option to wager in the MotoGP 2018 winner. The bookie gives current leader Marc Marquez the biggest chances for the title with odds of 2/25. Jorge Lorenzo comes right after Marquez with odds of 11/2, followed by Dovizioso with odds of 29/4, the legendary Valentino Rossi with odds of 35/4, and Vinales at 18/1.
The other players aren’t being given great chances for the title. Zarco has odds of 47/1, Kal Crutchlow stands at 98/1, while former 250cc World Champion Dani Pedrosa fares even worse with odds of 475/1. Considering the unappealing odds for Marquez, we think it’s a good idea to take a gamble on some of the other riders if you want to win something in return.
Powered by TGP Europe and licensed by the UK Gambling Commission, Ole777 is a new bookmaker that’s making quite the name for itself in recent years. Although the free bet is a bit of a fuss to gain and there are currently no promo offers, Ole777 has a wide collection of sporting markets to bet on and quite enticing odds as well.
For the 2018 MotoGP winner, Ole777 favours Marc Marquez, giving the Spaniard odds of 2/25. His fellow countryman and former MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo is second on the list with odds of 11/2, followed by Andrea Dovizioso (29/4) and Valentino Rossi (35/4). Maverick Vinales closes the group of bigger favourites for the title with odds of 18/1 before they take a dip with Johann Zarco at 47/1 and Cal Crutchlow with 98/1.
Ole777 doesn’t give the other riders great chances of winning the 2018 MotoGP, with the unlikeliest riders to win the championship (Nakagami, Luthi, and Redding) being given odds of 4449/1.
Letou is commonly known as the main shirt sponsor of Premier League team Swansea City A.F.C., but the bookmaker has been attracting the attention of UK punters with a load of sporting markets to bet on and attractive odds as well. In just a short time, Letou has become a favourite of many punters in the UK and throughout Europe as well.
Marc Marquez is Letou’s favourite for the 2018 MotoGP winner market as well. The Spaniard is being given odds of 2/25 and is followed by Lorenzo (11/2), Dovizioso (29/4), Rossi (35/4) and Vinales (18/1). Former MotoGP champion Dani Pedrosa isn’t among the favourites with odds of 475/1, and things are much worse for Scott Redding who’s stuck on the bottom of the list with odds of 4449/1.
Although Marquez is the clear favourite for the title, his odds are not attractive at all. With more than half of the season to go and Dovizioso and Rossi behind Marquez on the rider’s standings, maybe it’s better to take a gamble on them. After all, surprises can happen fast in the MotoGP.
SportPesa is a relatively new bookie on the British betting market. However, it was quite popular in Africa (specifically Kenya) for quite a long time before entering the UK. The bookie has a nice welcome bonus for new punters and a load of attractive special offers that you definitely shouldn’t miss. If you’re a football fan, don’t forget to check out the great promos for this summer’s World Cup.
When it comes to the 2018 MotoGP, SportPesa has Marc Marquez as the heavy favourite, giving him odds of 2/25. Jorge Lorenzo comes in on the second spot with odds of 11/2, followed by Dovizioso with odds of 29/4 and Valentino Rossi with odds of 35/4. Maverick Vinales is being given odds of 18/1 to win the championship and is followed by Johann Zarco (47/1) and Cal Crutchlow (98/1).
At the bottom end of the list of favourites, Thomas Luthi and Scott Redding are the riders with the lowest chances of winning this year’s MotoGP, both at odds of 4449/1. Betting on Marquez as the favourite won’t bring you much in return, but putting our money on Dovizioso, Lorenzo or Rossi can bring you a small fortune for a reasonable bet.
Since last year’s rebranding, SportNation has been attracting thousands of UK punters thanks to the great welcome bonus and the variety of special offers they run for different sports events. The list of sporting markets is really impressive, featuring a variety of American sports as well as popular British sports such as horse racing. Just like most bookies, SportNation gives you the option to wager in the Outright Winner market for the 2018 MotoGP.
Once again, the heavy favourite is Spaniard Marc Marquez, who’s leading the pack of favourites with odds of 2/25. Jorge Lorenzo is behind him with odds of 11/2, followed by Andrea Dovizioso with 29/4 and Valentino Rossi with odds of 35/4. Vinales and Zarco come next with odds of 18/1 and 47/1 respectively, while Dani Pedrosa is among the group of outsiders with odds of 475/1.
Marquez’s odds are quite unappealing, so if you want a sizeable return for your bet, we recommend taking a look at the other options. Surprises have been known to happen in the MotoGP, and with too many races until the end, we suggest taking a look at all the options carefully.
