F1 Singapore Grand Prix Betting Predictions & Picks to Back
One of the most unique backgrounds in all of motorsports awaits the F1 Series this week in the Singapore Grand Prix. The Marina Bay Street Circuit presents a tight, twisting challenge to drivers competing under the lights in a spectacular setting. Tight quarters and sparks flying is the usual byproduct of the special event. The track hosted the first nighttime F1 race in history, beginning in 2008 and it has been a staple since.
The track’s layout features a series of twisting turns that bring speeds down and put a premium on handling. Because track position is so vital, qualifying and starting spots are as important in Singapore for F1 betting fans as any track on the schedule. Whoever takes the pole will have a significant advantage based on race history, the Singapore winner having won eight times in the past 10 years from the number one starting berth.
Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc comes in on a two-race winning streak. But he is still considered an outside shot behind Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, Hamilton having four victories at Marina Bay.
Here are the best bets for the weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix:
F1 Singapore Grand Prix Best Bets
|Lewis Hamilton to Win||+130|

|Charles Leclerc Podium Finish||+125|
|Safety Car Appearance||-715|
All odds are current as of publication and subject to change.
PICK 1: Lewis Hamilton To Win
It’s unfathomable to think Hamilton could go three straight races without winning. Leclerc has kept him out of 'Victory Lane' the previous two events but Hamilton’s uncanny ability at Marina Bay makes him a strong favorite for a fifth career win at the track. He dominated this race a year ago winning by nearly nine seconds. Bet Hamilton to win at +130 at 888sport.
PICK 2: Max Verstappen Podium Finish
Verstappen has been in a little bit of a funk of late and was forced to come from deep in the field late to get back to the front. He is a master at the finesse racing necessary to succeed in Singapore.
However, keeping up with Hamilton will already be a challenge let alone trying to overtake him for win number five. But Verstappen is definitely the next in class. Bet Verstappen to score a podium finish at -455.
PICK 3: Charles Leclerc Podium Finish
All eyes will be on the Ferrari driver to see if he can score the three-peat. He was ninth in this race a year ago but don’t put too much stock in that since he was with the then Sauber-Ferrari team. Leclerc is in much better equipment in 2019 and if you believe in momentum, he may have the most in the series. Winning may be a longshot but a finish is definitely doable. Bet Leclerc to score a podium finish at +125.
PICK 4: Safety Car Appearance
Last year’s race featured one full-course caution for three laps that brought out the safety car. The tight Marina Bay course has a reputation for more yellows including three just the season prior. The safety car will turn laps this weekend. Bet -715 for a safety car appearance at 888sport.
