Formula 1: Against The Odds

Monaco Madness

leave a comment »

Not a great deal stands out for me this weekend with the bookmakers seemingly wise to my usual play. I had been hoping that as the event neared a standout price for the Safety Car to be deployed would materialise.  We have seen the Mercedes road car in each of the last four seasons take to the streets of the principality during the race and it would be no surprise to see it do so again.

A 22 car field, plenty of rookies (with even the best proving they are not infallible already this weekend) and next to no run off areas would seem like the perfect recipe for some blocked track carnage; but with odds generally no better than 4/11, I am happy to keep my powder dry.  Especially as prior to this four-year run there was a sustained – and surprising – period of inactivity for the safety car driver.  Bwin’s ‘How many times will we see the Safety Car’ markets do not make much appeal either.

Anybody who does want to take the plunge will probably struggle to beat the price at SkyBet, though personally I will be waiting for Montreal where I expect there to be much better value on offer.
