From Nags To Riches With This F1 Profit Opportunity

| March 23, 2011 | 3 Replies

Well, there goes another Cheltenham…

The fun, fillies and festivities put to bed for another year…

But, thanks to the Betting Rant, many of you will at least have a small profit to remember it all by.

Each and every one of our horses was placed, with seasonal ‘four to follow’ members Hurricane Fly and Big Bucks both ending up in the winners enclosure.

And before any smart Alec pipes up, yes, I’m well aware of the fact that not all of them were tipped each-way but, had you followed each and every tip to the letter, you would still have ended up in profit…

And how many Cheltenham tipsters can say that?!

Looking forward to this weekend, we have the start of the Formula One season and a sport that makes horseracing seem positively poverty stricken.

I mean, if horseracing is the sport of kings, then F1 is the sport of Russian oligarchs, drug dealers at the top of their game and sado-masochistic Neo Nazis…

An enemy within

Now, betting on mega rich men can present a problem…

After all, where’s the motivation to try your best when you’re being paid a fortune regardless?

A case in point is Mario Balotelli, who seems to have all the motivation of a hungover McDonald’s employee and, like the performance of our McDonald’s employee, a disappointing end product is usually the result.

So, what’s the solution?

Quite simply, back a man with a point to prove and a score to settle…

And that’s exactly why I’m advising a bet on Mark Webber to win the World Championship at 10/1 with Sporting Bet.

You see, when Mark wasn’t winning races last year he was generally to be found engaging in a literal and metaphorical staring contest with ‘teammate’ Sebastian Vettel.


Because Vettel was perceived to be the number one driver at Red Bull, despite Webber’s belief that he was more than able to compete with his German foe.

Well, it turns out that Webber was right and, while Vettel may have ultimately claimed the Championship spoils, he spent much of the season behind the Aussie and was perhaps a tad fortunate to usurp him at the death.

All of which makes the 10/1 currently available a steal and a price that is sure to vanish without trace if Red Bull start the season in any sort of form.

A one stop strategy to see off the competition

While Mark Webber has a better chance of the title than his odds would suggest, I would like this to be a bet of the ‘in and out’ variety.

The reason being is that our Mark isn’t getting any younger and the best time to back him may well be at the start of the season when he is still fresh from the break.

With this in mind, you need to get in on this bet at no shorter than 8/1 and then be looking to get out with a ‘lay’ bet upon my signal.

Just think of it as a pit stop, with a nice wad of guaranteed cash waiting for you at the end of it!

With MacLaren struggling in testing and the first race in Webber’s native Oz, we may well be able to lock in a good profit after just a week or two and in fact, if you’re reeeeeallly speedy, you could even sneak some cash now.

That’s right, before the first race has even started!

That’s because Mark is currently available to lay at 10.5 with Betfair and back at 10/1 (11.0) with Sporting Bet

Ok, so you’d only be able to lock in a minute profit but it just goes to show how quickly we should be able to make some cash on this bet.

So, for a chance to bag a few notes and feel like an F1 star for a day…

Well, maybe not…

Back Mark Webber to win the F1 World Championship at 10/1 with Sporting Bet, 9/1 with Bwin or 8/1 with anybody else.

Then, get out the imaginary car, rev that imaginary engine and GO GO GO!!!

    Hi Matt

    Totally agree with Webber but ive got him on the points handicap +70 at 10/1 with Ladbrokes.

    I think thats a cracking price and I think Ladbrokes have totally missed a trick here

    Hi Wayne,

    Yeah that’s not bad. I hadn’t looked at the market but it’s certainly an interesting one.

    He’s definitely been underrated. The fact that Vettel is just 2/1 in the outright market is crazy given how close they were last year.

    Hi Matt

    Exactly up until the last few races there was vettel, hamilton, webber and alonso all in it so to put Vettel above all them by so much doesnt make sense.

    Also Hamiltons prices are a bit small if you ask me what with all the trouble Mclaren are having with their car and I can see them getting blown away unfortunately
