Statistically speaking, Max Verstappen is in the middle of the most individually dominant era in Formula 1 history. Since the start of the 2022 season, he has won an incredible 38 out of 49 races. This inevitability is reflected in the BetMGM odds for the Miami Grand Prix.

Verstappen has an incredible moneyline of -550, meaning a $100 bet would only return $18.18 in profits. Verstappen's teammate Sergio Pérez has the next best odds at +800, which corresponds to eight dollars won for every dollar wagered. For comparison: Last year Verstappen started the weekend at -200, while Pérez was at +300.

The weather forecast calls for hot, humid conditions and a greater than 50 percent chance of rain for Saturday and Sunday. The asphalt for the Miami Grand Prix already offers very little grip, so the combination of high temperatures, a slippery track and mid-range tires could potentially lead to exciting racing.
