The biggest event of the year for MotoGP is almost upon us and fans and betting enthusiasts who already circled March 18th on their calendars as soon as last season ended can’t wait for all the action to begin once again.
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 Qatar Grand Prix and the Losail Circuit will be the first to host the world’s greatest motorcycle racers and the guessing game about who will win MotoGP 2018 is now into full swing. We are going to do our bit towards this common goal and provide you with a detailed overview of the MotoGP 2018 outright winner odds and chances which are provided by six of the best MotoGP betting operators.
EnergyBet offers a vastly different offer for the MotoGP odds 2018 market when you put them side by side with all other betting operators. Marc Marquez is the favourite to win the accolades according to them, and here they are pretty much on the same page as all other bookmakers. However, the odds given for his victory are almost two times lower than those of competing bookmakers and are currently 3/8.
In addition to this, Andrea Dovizioso (28/5) is not their second biggest favourite for the title as they opt to put Jorge Lorenzo in that position – 24/5. Dovizioso is also not the third favourite for EnergyBet as Maverick Vinales is in front of him with odds of 26/5. In general, the odds for all candidates at EnergyBet are slightly lower than other bookmakers are offering. It must be said however, that EnergyBet’s welcome bonus of an exclusive £35 free bet when you deposit and bet up to £35 makes up for these lower odds.
Fun88 is another betting operator which has dedicated a lot of time and energy on creating the best MotoGP betting experience possible and if you look at the odds they offer for this year’s edition of the championship you will see what we are talking about.
Marc Marquez is expectedly the most likely candidate to win the 2018 MotoGP with Fun88 and he is given odds of 5/7. He is followed, but not very closely by the rest of the chasing pact which consists of Andrea Dovizioso (11/2), Jorge Lorenzo (13/2), Maverick Vinales (13/2), Valentino Rossi (39/4), Johan Zarco (14/1), Daniel Pedrosa (15/1), Cal Crutchlow (32/1), Andrea Lannone (33/1), Alex Rins (40/1), Jack Miller (63/1), and Danilo Petrucci (93/1).
