Research 3 common betting strategies for motorcycle racing.

Motorcycle Racing is a fast-paced sport and the Live InPlay betting is very exciting as a race progresses. The outcome of a race will depend on the weather, the track and not just a racer’s skill so when laying bets it is important for the punter to study the pre-race conditions and track statistics.

Place Betting

By its nature, Motorcycle Racing has a high rate of attrition in the cars and drivers and this results in unpredictable overall results of a race.  Betting on whether a driver will Place in the Top 10 or Top 6 can open up a punter’s betting options because betting on the Winner might be affected more by external factors like weather and track conditions and this will lessen the pressure a punter will feel during the course of a race.

Grid Positions

Before a race starts, the starting positions of each racer on the grid will largely affect the outcome of a race.  It is very rare for a backmarker to progress to the top during a race.  Coupled with place betting, a punter can make a relatively better bet after analyzing the grid positions before each race.

Statistical Analysis

Dominant teams (manufacturers, drivers, constructors) will always post better points than the lesser teams, so by looking at a team’s recent form, a punter can make an informed bet.  Tracks have drivers who favour the particular track, so it is worthwhile to look at the track’s records and driver results there.  Race reviews in the media will also paint a picture of how each team is likely to perform and it’s morale before the race.
