Outside bets for Japanese GP 2024

Lando Norris and the McLaren team emerge as potential dark horses for the Japanese GP, with odds that reflect an intriguing blend of risk and reward for bettors. Meanwhile, the Mercedes pair of Lewis Hamilton and George Russell, despite being listed with longer odds, cannot be discounted given their proven capabilities and the team’s resources.

Fernando Alonso‘s position as an outside bet also highlights his veteran savvy and Aston Martin‘s potential for surprise performances. Drivers like Yuki Tsunoda, Nico Hulkenberg, Alexander Albon, Valtteri Bottas, and Kevin Magnussen find themselves with steeper odds, painting them as the underdogs for the Japanese GP.
