Formula 1 odds, picks, race times: Surprising 2022 Italian Grand Prix predictions, F1 bets from a proven model
The 2022 Formula 1 calendar continues on Sunday with the 2022 Pirelli Italian Grand Prix at Monza on Sunday September 11, with racing due to start at 9 a.m. ET. The Autodromo Nazionale di Monza is the oldest purpose-built racing circuit in Europe, having been established in 1922, and the third oldest in the world behind Brooklands and Indianapolis. Formula 1 began racing there in 1950 and has returned there every year except for 1980, when the Italian Grand Prix was held at Imola while Monza was being renovated. Lewis Hamilton will chase a record sixth win at Monza but was only seventh fastest in Friday’s second practice session.
Red Bull’s Max Verstappen is the -200 (risk $200 to win $100) betting favorite in Caesars Sportsbook’s latest 2022 Italian Grand Prix odds. He is followed by Charles Leclerq of Ferrari at 13-5 and then George Russell of Mercedes at 8-1. Hamilton is a 35-1 longshot in the Italian GP odds with Mercedes winless in the first 15 races of the season. Before analyzing the starting grid for the 2022 Italian Grand Prix and making Formula 1 choices, be sure to check out the latest Italian GP 2022 predictions and betting tips from SportsLine’s proven prediction model.
Developed by Fantasy pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this exclusive Formula 1 prediction model simulates each race 10,000 times, taking into account factors such as track history and recent results. He has had a solid history of success in motorsport, correctly predicting seven winners during the 2021 NASCAR season and his projected rankings have predicted winners in multiple race formats.
The model has been red-hot when it comes to picking Formula 1 racing events dating back to 2021. He took Leclerc’s two wins in 2022, and at the 2021 Mexican Grand Prix the model was strongly supporting Verstappen as his first choice. The result: Verstappen dominated the field and rode away with a surprise win. The model followed that up by calling Verstappen’s victory at the Rolex Emilia Romagna GP in April, and then picked up his victories again each of the past two weeks in Belgium and the Netherlands. Anyone who followed the model’s lead on these games saw huge returns
Now the model has signed on for the 2022 Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix and has just released its coveted picks and ranking projections. You can head to SportsLine now to see the full 2022 Italian GP standings projection.
Top 2022 Formula 1 Italian GP Predictions
Huge shock: McClure is wiping out Verstappen, the -200 race favorite who has won each of the last four Formula 1 Grands Prix. Verstappen is on course for his second consecutive Drivers’ Championship with a huge lead of 109 points in the standings with only eight races to go.
However, he retired in the last two Italian GPs and never finished better than fifth in seven Formula 1 starts at Monza. In Friday practice, Verstappen finished fifth in the first session and then second in the second session, with Ferrari setting the fastest lap in both outings. The model does not predict that he will cross the line first on Sunday. See who the model supports here.
