Canadian Grand Prix Odds, Driver Picks to Win & Analysis

The ninth Formula 1 race of 2024 is set for this weekend as the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve will host the Canadian Grand Prix. Charles Leclerc pulled off the win in the last Grand Prix, in Monaco, qualifying for the pole and then holding off the pack. Monte Carlo’s street circuit is tight, making passing difficult, so having that early edge and being able to hold off the pack were impressive accomplishments. The track in Montreal is similar to the one in Monte Carlo, so expect Leclerc to enter the weekend with plenty of confidence. For Red Bull, Max Verstappen, who has three world championships, settled for sixth place, and Sergio Press ended his day with a first-lap wreck. McLaren continued its climb out of the midfield as Oscar Piastri took second place and Lando Norris took fourth. Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz rounded out the podium by finishing in third place. Mercedes and Red Bull were frozen off the podium. Check out the Formula 1 Betting odds for each of the drivers to win this week as well as our thoughts on the race.

Formula 1 Betting Canadian Grand Prix Odds to Win

 

The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve has hosted grands prix since 1978. It’s named after the Canadian driver who won the first Canadian Grand Prix, and four years after he passed away, the circuit was named after him. Drivers will complete 70 laps that run 4.361 km each. Valtteri Bottas set the lap record in 2019 with Mercedes at 1:13.078 seconds. Lewis Hamilton and Michael Schumacher hold the record with seven victories each here. Other current drivers who have won this race include Daniel Ricciardo (2014) and Verstappen (2022 and 2023). Hamilton and Schumacher have won six pole positions each. Fernando Alonso took the pole in 2006, and Verstappen has taken it in each of the last two years.

In 2023, Verstappen won the Canadian Grand Prix as the fourth in what would turn into a ten-race winning streak. That was also the 100th win for the Red Bull team since they entered F1 in 2005. Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton took the other two spots on the podium. This time around, though, Ferrari looks like a solid choice after dominating Monaco on the same sort of street circuit they will see this week. The problems that Red Bull’s cars have in narrow streets where curbs play a role, which were significant in Monaco, are likely to recur in Montreal.

If you’re looking for a value pick at Formula 1, take a gander at Carlos Sainz. He’s raced just about as well as Leclerc, but he’s priced as though he’s a much poorer driver. Sainz outperformed Leclerc in the first three races of 2024 before Leclerc reversed things in the last five. If you just want to take Sainz to finish on the podium, you can find that at +275 on several books. Taking him to win and make the podium are decent bets because Ferrari has another chance to win on this tight street course. Sainz led 17 laps here in 2022 and only fell behind Verstappen late, finishing less than a second behind the Red Bull driver. He’s an intriguing pick this time around.
