Motor sports Betting
Motorcycling is a spectacular, dynamic sport which attracts thousands of fans around the world. There are several classes in motor sport, each one good and unique in its own way. The biggest events are broadcast on television and well covered on the internet.
In addition, bookmakers offer betting on motorsports, with a fairly large selection of events. Therefore, bettors who have a good understanding of the sport can always find suitable competitions for profitable bets.
Special features of motorsports betting
Technical performance has a huge influence on the outcome – the motorbike itself. The physical qualities of the rider are not as important as in other sports such as football, hockey or basketball. Here at the forefront are other qualities – the reaction, the ability to make quick decisions, excellent knowledge of the bike, a thorough knowledge of the track.
When placing a bet on motorsports, there are a lot of factors to consider, such as weather conditions, bike specifications, tyre type, mechanics’ consistency and speed, the strategy used, rider and team motivation and many more. Therefore, before each race, the bettor has to do a long and painstaking job to make sure his bet is more likely to win.
Motorbike racing is unpredictable, which is why bookmakers offer rather high odds on the favourites. The odds on last year’s winner, for instance, can be as high as 2.0.
Another distinctive feature of betting on motorbike races is an increased margin at the bookmaker’s office. This is due to the unpredictability of the races. To reduce the consequences of incorrect predictions, bookmakers inflate the margin.
There are many types of motorsports tournaments, each with different durations, techniques and rules. Here we will only look at the most popular motorbike races organised by the IMF – the International Motorcycle Federation:
Motocross – a cross-country competition with obstacles on the course. The Motocross World Championships take place over a six-month period, and different stages may be held in several countries around the world.
Speedway – a race on an oval track on flat asphalt without obstacles. Lap lengths range from 260 to 400 metres. The World Championships also take place in grand prix format.
Speedway on ice is a track covered with ice, giving the races a sense of drama and excitement. It should be noted that Russian athletes have been winning the main event of the sport for the past 20 years.
The road-ring race is the most popular form of motorbike racing with bookmakers. Competitions take place on flat, tarmac tracks.
Road-ring races have three categories: Moto2, Moto3 and MotoGP. The last class is the most prestigious and popular. In this competition, riders race on specially developed motorbikes which are not mass-produced.
Types of motorbike racing bets with Roketbet
Motorbike racing betting is characterised by its simplicity and small selection. You can’t bet on totals, or on a handicap rider to win. All bets are very clear, which is why beginners like to bet on this sport.
So, the most popular bet is on a winner. Before the race, you can pick one rider you think will finish first and place a bet on him. The odds are quite high, even on favourites.
Sometimes the line does not include the name of the driver, but the name of the team. Live bets on the best time on a particular lap are also accepted.
In addition, the bookmakers at Roketbet accept bets on who will make the top three winners. The odds are, of course, lower than on a clear win, but the bettor’s chances of winning are higher. The odds are 1.2-1.3 if one of the favourites takes the 1st, 2nd or 3rd place.
Another type of betting is a driver to driver comparison, where the bettor is required to determine which of them is quicker to complete the entire track or a particular lap.
