Formula 1: Against The Odds

Season-Long Spreads

leave a comment »

Sporting Index has finally managed to throw together some spread prices for the Drivers’ World Championships and Constructors’ World Championships markets. Perhaps they read F1Punter? The championship indexes offer a sliding scale of reward depending on where each driver or team finishes (top six for drivers, top three for constructors).

Unfortunately there is no appearance of their points spread markets yet and it is these that carry the most interest for me. In these markets you can buy or sell a driver or team’s world championship points in the same way as you would with stocks and shares. If you fancy a dark horse to perform well, someone to be ultra-consistent or for a driver to fail to live up to expectations, then this is the place to play.

These types of bets give you a great run for your money during the season as potentially every overtaking move or unscheduled pit stop is making you a profit or loss. Hopefully the markets will appear before next weekend and I will do some proper analysis.
