|Moto GP World Championship W/O Marquez odds|
Moto GP is one of the most exciting racing seasons, as it’s the premier class of motorcycle racing on road circuits and hosts some of the most impressive professional riders from all over the world. Like any professional sport or racing sport, it can be exhilarating to bet on your favorite driver to win the race, especially if your bet cashes.
Grand Prix motorcycle racing is extremely fast, and the motorcycles used in GP races are generally unavailable to the public due to their high speeds. Anything can happen with these elite motorcycles traveling at top speeds, and putting money on a race outcome can make it all the more exciting.
The Moto Grand Prix season is the oldest motorsport world championship and is divided into four classes: Grand Prix, Moto2, Moto3, and MotoE.
The highest level, the Grand Prix MotoGP class, allows a maximum of 1,000 cc motor limits and four-stroke engines. The Moto2 class has 765 cc displacement with three cylinders and is solely supplied by Triumph Motorcycles Ltd.
The Moto3 class has single-cylinder 250 cc four-stroke engines and is only available to riders between 16 and 28 years old. MotoE is new, just introduced in 2019, and is open to strictly electric motorcycles - using Energica Ego Corsa motorcycles.
Betting on MotoGP is fairly common in the southern and midwest states. The most wagered on Moto event by far is the MotoGP Indianapolis. But with a full slate of MotoGP events throughout the Grand Prix season, you can find plenty of other Moto events to bet on.

MotoGP Betting Types
There are a few MotoGP betting options available and while correctly predicting the outcome of the race is extremely exciting and rewarding in terms of odds payout, you can still have some fun with MotoGP racing throughout the season.
Betting on the outright winner is by far the most popular betting option as it’s easy and straightforward to understand. It’s as simple as it sounds, you can place a bet on which rider you think will win the race.
Each race will have a list of the riders competing, and their individual odds to win, based on their past performances and who they’re competing against. There are clear favorites on the odds board, with the top rider being the most likely to win.
If you have Marc Márquez at +150 to win a race, you would have to wager $100 to win $150.
As there is a season of racing, with many events and an eventual winner, you can wager on who will win the rider’s championship. This award is earned by the racer who accumulates the most points throughout the season. Riders earn points if they place in the top 15 positions in each race, and are very sought after - which makes the races so competitive and lucrative.
Riders participate in teams, and you can also bet on the constructor’s championship, which accumulates points for a whole team after a full racing season.
A futures bet is one you would place earlier in the season, maybe in the first few weeks if you see a rider really start to gain momentum. Futures odds are much higher than regular single game winner odds, as you are making a very specific prediction long before the event occurs.
Racing sports of all kinds usually have a podium format, which allows for the top three finalists to have recognition for their achievement. Sportsbooks offer podium finish odds on each racing event, and this means you can bet on a rider to place within the top three. It doesn’t matter which position the rider finishes in, as long as it's first, second or third. This is common if you know a driver will do well in the race, but you aren’t confident enough that they will win outright.
Fastest Qualifier (Pole Position)
Each driver has a different starting position, and where you start the race - which is also called a pole position - is important to your performance in the race. Before the main event, the riders participate in qualifying races, whichever driver has the fastest time is awarded the pole position. The qualifiers provide insight into the driver and how they perform on the circuit, which can provide great insight into how the following day’s race will go.
In a similar fashion to the outright winner bet, you can bet on the pole position or fastest qualifier as a warm-up for the Grand Prix.
Top Online Sportsbooks for MotoGP Betting
When it comes to betting on MotoGP, online sportsbooks have the best offering in terms of convenience, betting options, and variety. Few even offer MotoGP betting bonuses that you can use to pad your bankroll to use during the MotoGP season.
Finding an online sportsbook that suits your MotoGP betting needs is important, so the first thing to look for is that the sportsbook even offers motorsport betting odds. The second criterion to look for is whether the sportsbook offers your preferred deposit option. If you want to use a Visa, ensure the sportsbook accepts credit cards, and specifically Visa.
Choosing an online sportsbook shouldn’t be a chore, or extremely time-consuming, so reading sportsbook reviews can greatly help in the selection process.
