F1 Betting Odds: Lewis Hamilton Dominating Bahrain Grand Prix Betting

Lewis Hamilton is well accustomed to being the betting favorite in the majority of F1 betting markets, however, that's not the case ahead of the Bahrain Grand Prix. 

Mercedes have won five Bahrain Grand Prix in the hybrid era, but due to Red Bull's impressive pre-season testing, Max Verstappen has been installed as favorite in the Bahrain Grand Prix odds market. 

Max Verstappen will be starting in poll position, and he's also in poll position in the betting market, with online sportsbooks making him the -150 favorite to win the Bahrain Grand Prix (BetMGM best odds).

Lewis Hamilton starts the race in position 2 on the starting grid, and is the second favorite in the F1 betting market to win the race, with online sportsbooks giving odds of +200 that Hamilton will win the race (William Hill best odds). 

Valterri Bottas is the only other driver in the Bahrain Grand Prix betting market with odds under +2000, Bottas has been given odds of +1600 to win the race (Bet365 best odds)
