F1 Odds: Charles Leclerc's Odds Slashed After Qualifying First For Miami Grand Prix

Earlier in the week, the F1 odds for this Sunday's Miami Grand Prix were clear in naming Red Bull's Max Verstappen the odds-on favorite to win the race's first-ever running.

On Saturday, following qualifying, those F1 odds had seen a massive shift.

Verstappen, who finished qualifying in third on Saturday, had seen his Miami Grand Prix odds turn to odds-off as he became the second favorite. Instead, Ferrari's Charles Leclerc continued his dominance this season by qualifying first and becoming the new odds-on favorite.

F1 odds can be fickle like that, just because you start the week as the favorite doesn't mean you will start the race that way, and today was no different.

Who should you be backing in the first-ever Maimi Grand Prix? Is Leclerc the play? Verstappen? Someone a little farther down the odds board? Let's take a look at the latest F1 odds to find out.
