2010 Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix
The 2010 Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix takes place this Sunday 26 September, bringing sports betting fans one race closer to the end of the season. With just five Grand Prix races left, those who placed bets on the Outright Betting market and/or the Constructors Championship 2010 market at the beginning of the season will already have a fair idea of how those bets are measuring up. This makes it possible for bettors to consider making a fresh bet or two to hedge against potential losses, or for those who haven’t yet bet to consider doing so.
Mark Webber has had a very good season so far for the Red Bull team and is currently at the top of the list as far as driver standings are concerned with 187 points under his belt. McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton is up close in second on 182 points and Fernando Alonso is currently in third on 166 points. The Outright Betting market odds at online sportsbooks such as Paddy Power and William Hill reflect those standings, with Webber installed as the current favourite and Hamilton the clear second favourite.
With Webber having put in such a good performance for his team, it isn’t any surprise that Red Bull is the hot favourite to take the Constructors Championship title for 2010. McLaren is currently second favourite and Ferrari the outsider of three.
F1 betting fans who fancy betting in one of the seasonal markets but are dissuaded by the relatively short odds that are to be expected at this stage in the Formula 1 2010 season might want to consider Outright Straight Forecast and Outright Dual Forecast bets. These require you to predict which drivers will finish in first and second place when the season comes to an end.
Of the two special bets just mentioned, the Straight Forecast pays better odds because you need to say which driver will finish in first place and which will finish in second (for example, Webber in 1st and Hamilton in 2nd). The Dual Forecast only requires you to name the two drivers (for example, Webber and Hamilton) and not the order in which they will finish, so the odds are slightly lower, but still higher than just naming one driver to win in the Outright Betting market.
The Singapore Grand Prix is a night race, so it is sure to be an exciting event that no Formula 1 fan will want to miss. Place your bets early, enjoy the spectacle and good luck!
