Who will win the 2019 MotoGP championship?

Who will win the 2019 MotoGP championship?
The 2019 MotoGP championship runs from March 10 when the riders race at the Grand Prix of Qatar and ends on November 17 at the Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana. All eyes will be on Marc Marquez who is looking to secure his sixth MotoGP championship in seven years, which would put him ahead of Australian legend Mick Dooham in terms of titles won.

The first race of the 2019 MotoGP Championship takes place in Qatar and will be a good marker to see how the six teams have prepared for the 17-race season. Marc Marquez is the overwhelming favorite to win what would be his sixth title in seven season with betting odds of -154 (Bovada).

MotoGP 2019 looks set to be incredibly hard fought with Valentino Rossi determined to get back to winning ways and Jorge Lorenzo hoping to put an injury-hit 2018 behind him so he can challenge for the riders championship.

  • Marc Marquez won the MotoGP title in 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018.
  • Only Jorge Lorenzo has managed to stop Marc Marquez from securing the MotoGP title in recent years, winning the championship in 2015.
  • Seven-time MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi failed to win a single race during the 2018 MotoGP season
  • Yamaha have only managed to win one race in their last 27 attempts
  • Marc Marquez won five of the seven races that he qualified for in pole position in 2018

Marc Marquez is a huge favorite

Spain’s Marc Marquez, riding for Respol Honda, has the shortest betting odds MotoGP 2019 before the first race and is the only rider to have negative betting odds at -154.

Marquez is a MotoGP superstar who won the championship in his first year in MotoGP in 2013 and has since won another four titles, only slipping up in 2015 when fellow Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo managed to cause an upset.

The only races Marquez will be fearful about on the 2019 MotoGP schedule are Argentina and Italy where he finished 18th and 16th in an otherwise perfect season in 2018. Marquez won races in the United States, Spain, France, Netherlands, Germany, Aragon, Thailand, Japan and Malaysia on his way to a third successive MotoGP title. Whoever finishes above Marquez in the MotoGP 2019 will win the title.

 

Watch for Jorge Lorenzo

Jorge Lorenzo could be a good shout for the championship especially as he is currently priced around +575. Lorenzo missed large parts of last season’s MotoGP schedule with mechanical problems and a couple of crashes, one that broke a bone in his foot that caused him to withdraw from two MotoGPs.

Lorenzo is the only man to have managed to win a MotoGP championship title since Marquez burst onto the scene. It is worth noting Lorenzo is riding for Respol Honda with Marquez this season so has a much better motorcycle than the Ducati he mounted for 2017 and 2018.

Forget about Valentino Rossi

Perhaps the biggest MotoGP news from last season was Valentino Rossi’s failure to win a single MotoGP race, never set the fastest lap all season and only qualified in pole position once. His Yamaha team have only won one race in their last 27 attempts and it seems “The Doctor’s” best years are well behind him.

We wouldn’t even touch Rossi if he had betting odds of +1800 never mind the +900 currently being spread.

Riders and respective odds:
  • 1. Marc Marquez -154
  • 2. Andrea Dovizioso +450
  • 3. Jorge Lorenzo +575
  • 4. Maverick Vinales +800
  • 5. Valentino Rossi +900
  • 6. Danilo Petrucci +1400
  • 7. Alex Rins +5000
  • 7. Cal Crutchow +5000
  • 9. Aleix Espargaro +15000
  • 9. Johann Zarco +15000
  • 11. Andrea Iannone +20000
  • 11. Hafizh Syahrin +20000
  • 11. Joan Mir +20000
  • 11. Pol Espargaro +20000
  • 15. Takaaki Nakagami +35000
  • 16. Miguel Oliveira +100000
