World Champion, Marc Marquez, produced an 11th win of the season in Australia last week, his fifth success in a row. That took the Spaniard’s points tally to an incredible 375 and increased his lead to a brilliant 135 points. Andrea Dovizioso secured the runner-up spot in the World Standings in Australia last week after finishing ahead of Alex Rins, who in turn is now seven points in front of Maverick Vinales in the race for third place.

Previous Malaysian MotoGP Results
Despite having already secured an eighth world title, Marc Marquez is showing no signs of slowing up having won the last five MotoGPs in a row. He arrives in Malaysia looking for another win at a track he won at last year and in 2014. He has been the one to beat all season and will go into the race as a strong favourite again.
Andrea Dovizioso will have to settle for the runner-up spot in the World Standings once again, but he will be keen to end his season on a high in the final two races. He has a good record at the Sepang International Circuit, winning at the track in 2016 and 2017, however, he finished down in sixth place last year, so will need to rediscover his form in Malaysia from a couple of years ago.
Alex Rins could secure third place in the World Standings this week if he can finish enough points ahead of Maverick Vinales, Danilo Petrucci and Fabio Quartararo. His only previous attempt at Sepang last year saw him finish second, so the omens look good for another successful ride.
Other recent winners in Malaysia include Dani Pedrosa who won in 2012, 2013 and 2015.
Top Betting Tips for MotoGP Malaysia 2019
Marc Marquez goes into the race as the 4/5 odds-on favourite, and after his recent scintillating form, it’s hard to back against him. Maverick Vinales is the 3/1 second favourite, whilst Fabio Quartararo is the 11/2 third favourite.
Alex Rins has a real purpose for finishing high up the positions this week in trying to secure third place in the World Standings, so his odds of 23/2 are certainly appealing as an each-way bet for a podium finish having been runner-up at Sepang last year.
Danilo Petrucci is still in the hunt for third place and cannot be written off as an each-way chance at 33/1, whilst Cal Crutchlow, who finished second in Australia last week, has odds of 28/1 and is another very interesting hope as an each-way bet.
