2023 Las Vegas Grand Prix odds, favorites, betting insights: Verstappen favored
The inaugural Las Vegas Grand Prix is upon us!
Yes, the first Formula 1 race in Vegas since the 1982 Caesars Palace Grand Prix — and the third Grand Prix in the United States this season — revs up this Sunday, November 19. The 6.201 km street circuit runs counterclockwise and features 17 corners and a 1.900 km straight.
BetMGM’s Chief Revenue Officer Matt Prevost believes this Grand Prix will only be a boon to the growing U.S. fanbase.
“We are forecasting that this race weekend in Las Vegas is easily going to shatter every company record for the sport,” Prevost said. “While popularity for automotive sports in the U.S. continues to grow, we believe the activity we are seeing so far around this Las Vegas race is going to take it to a whole new level.”
Formula 1 certainly hopes so, as this race will be the most expensive event on the 23-race calendar.

BetMGM Senior Trader Halvor Egeland believes the race is Verstappen’s to lose.
“Max Verstappen is the betting favorite, but [he] would be one of our best results given his heavy odds. Hopefully, we can get a shocker in qualifying and someone other than Red Bull takes the pole to drive additional action.”
