Enter Oliver Bearman from the Ferrari Academy, who impressed in FP3 with a 10th place finish in Sainz’s stead.

F1 Saudi Arabian GP Winner Prediction

Max Verstappen (-650)

The Red Bull car is plenty ahead of the field. Unless Verstappen crashes, there is little doubt who will win.

F1 Saudi Arabian GP Max Verstappen Tips

Verstappen is a no-bet at (-650) to win the Saudi Arabian GP. The odds are too juiced to consider wagering on the multi-time Drivers’ Champion.

The best way to get in on Verstappen’s dominance is to target team props, or parlay his qualifying and race odds for a lower number.

F1 Saudi Arabian GP Best Prop Bets

Which Team Will Finish Qualifying With Both Drivers Top 3: Red Bull (+140)

BetMGM Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

Want to get plus-money on Verstappen and Red Bull? Do so with qualifying. The Red Bull team finished top three in two of three free practices.

Will Logan Sargeant Be Classified In The Race Rankings? No (+330)

FanDuel Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.75 Units

Jeddah is not known for its spacious turns and smooth rides for drivers. Williams continues to have a non-competitive team with Sargeant the clear #2 behind Albon.

Alpine is a target for yes/no classifications, but Sargeant’s history, and poor performance in Bahrain make this an easy bet to make with a strong return.

Fastest Qualifier, Fastest Lap, & Race Winner: Max Verstappen (+140)

FanDuel Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

You’ll never guess who hit this prop last week.

As long as Verstappen escapes a potential crash on Lap 1, there is no reason why he can’t repeat this with a qualifying win.
