2022 Belgian Grand Prix Picks
Top Pick to Win the 2022 Belgian Grand Prix
A few weeks ago, Lewis Hamilton said he believed Mercedes was on the verge of winning a race. If the past few events are a harbinger of things to come, then Lewis might be right.
Hamilton finished third at the Austrian Grand Prix. He crossed the finish line second behind rival Verstappen in France. Hamilton also finished second behind Max at the Hungarian Grand Prix.
Lewis Hamilton is ready to step to the podium’s top spot. At +500, he’s the best play on the board to win the Belgian Grand Prix.
Second Pick to Win the 2022 Belgian Grand Prix
Max Verstappen has dominated the season. So there’s no reason to believe he doesn’t drive well in Belgium. After a couple of losses, Max has won 2 straight. He took the checkered flag at the French Grand Prix and the Hungarian GP. Verstappen has won 8-of-13.
Third Pick to Win the 2022 Belgian Grand Prix
George Russell started the 2021 Belgium Grand Prix in second. He finished the race in second, which makes him a top play for this year. Russell has come into his own this season. No doubt, like teammate Hamilton, he’s going to win a race and soon.
Unlike Lewis, though, George was third in France and third in Hungary. If you’re looking to back a driver at better odds to win the Belgium Grand Prix, George Russell is the play.
Top Underdog Pick to Win the 2022 Belgian Grand Prix
Sergio Perez finished nineteenth at last year’s Belgium Grand Prix. He should finish much better in this year’s event. Perez and his crew are in good enough form to qualify as this Sunday’s top underdog play. Sergio finished fourth in France and fifth in Hungary. He’s the best underdog bet on the board.
