F1 Canadian Grand Prix Odds: Can Max Verstappen Win Back to Back Races?

One week removed from Max Verstappen picking up his fifth win of the season in Azerbaijan, he’s already taken the pole position this week in the Canada GP and is rightfully so the heavy favorite. Brief rival to start the season Charles Leclerc dealt with an engine penalty in qualifying and will start Sunday’s race in the 19th position.

Verstappen’s Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez also dealt with some issues during qualifying, sliding off the track in qualifying one before finding the 13th position after subsequent qualifying. The buzz following qualifying, however, was the torrid pace of Alpine’s Fernando Alonso who grabbed the #2 pole position as he searches for his third all-time win. 

Let’s take a closer look at where the remaining value is for the Canadian Grand Prix as we approach the halfway point of the season.

Canadian Grand Prix Pick: Max Verstappen -280 (Bet $280 to win $100)

While the odds are as long as they’ve been all season for a winner, I still think there’s some value in Verstappen inside of -300 as the guy and team (Red Bull) are in a league of their own. Getting to qualify in dry conditions, Verstappen got the pole position by .645s over Alonso after many racers had to qualify in wet conditions which we should expect to see throughout the day on Sunday. 

Despite winning five of the sports eight races so far this season, Sunday will mark just the second that Verstappen will start in the pole position. Coming into the week, Verstappen has a 21-point lead over teammate Perez, with the once-close Leclerc (Ferrari) now trailing by 34 points after failing to pick up any last week in Azerbaijan for the 2nd week in the prior three. 

Now, the reigning F1 champion will look to pick up his fifth win and five races, with his two next closest competitors being 13th and 19th, respectively. As he did in qualifying when it got wet, I expect Verstappen to find his groove early in this race, and with the start-up front, find success on a track he’s thus far shown dominance of. 

Verstappen will also have the added motivation of former rival and F1 great Lewis Hamilton starting hot on his tail in the #4 position, as the Mercedes driver will likely see his best chance of the season thus far in front of him. In addition to the team behind him and skills on the track, Verstappen will also have a large age advantage over the #2 position, as he comes into the race 16 years younger than Alonso.
