Formula 1: Against The Odds

Many, Many Markets

leave a comment »

I have just noticed that bwin.com are offering a staggering 163 different markets on this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix. Included are some markets that I have simply never seen offered before, such as betting on a top 3 finish in Free Practice or on the outcome of each phase of Qualifying. There are plenty of interesting head-to-heads and specials too.

BWin (formerly betandwin.com) is a fairly established name in European Sportsbook terms, but up until now it has flown under my radar in terms of F1 betting. I therefore don’t know whether this weekend’s offering is the norm or whether it is a special effort to reflect the high amount of their sponsorship that we normally see at the Circuit de Catalunya. I will certainly be keeping a watching brief.

With such a range of markets I can’t help but feel that their odds compiler must be letting some value slip somewhere, regardless of the hefty overround that is factored-in. I will be having a proper look at them all tomorrow.
