188BET’s odds are presented in decimal form: for every $1 wagered you would win the figure represented by the odds; so, if Verstappen is favourite at 1.50, you would win $1.50 for every dollar bet.

The odds for the win

As touched on above, it’s been tight at the sharp end of the field in recent events, with Red Bull coming under more and more pressure from Ferrari and McLaren to set up the prospect of a thrilling three-way title fight.

Monte Carlo’s twists, turns, bumps and kerbs did not suit Red Bull’s RB20 package, but Verstappen is heavily tipped to come back fighting at the more open and flowing Montreal venue, where he has claimed victory on the last two visits.
