Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix Predictions & Best Bets

As we head straight into the fall swing of the Formula One season, it all feels singularly focused.

Max Verstappen has been a beast, winning his last eight races in a row, and hasn’t finished off a podium yet this season. He feels determined to win seemingly every time he’s out there, and the crazy thing is he just keeps getting it done.

He now comes to Monza, where he won last year but had a collision in 2021 that knocked him out of the race. What happens this weekend?

Let’s look at the odds and the best picks for the Italian GP.

F1 Italian Winner Prediction

Max Verstappen (-340)

FanDuel Sportsbook • WAGER: 2 units

Verstappen should win this race. He won it handily last season, and despite not winning it in 2021, he was in pole position going into the race and a collision early took him out of it.

At this point in the season, it seems foolish to bet on anyone besides Max.

F1 Italian Best Prop Bets

Fastest Lap: Max Verstappen (-150)

FanDuel Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit

Even getting negative juice, this feels like a great bet when we’re talking about the best driver in the fastest car.

Verstappen feels like a strong bet knowing how determined he is to continue his streak of nine straight wins and this will help him continue.

Top 6 Driver: Pierre Gasly (+850)

FanDuel Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit

The young French phenom has been a revelation over the past few months, despite getting in a few collisions here and there.

Last week, he had his best finish of the season with a bronze medal earned in the Netherlands, so I’m betting on him to continue his good run and place top-six here.
