MotoGP Czech Grand Prix 2017 Betting Preview

Updated Tuesday 26th February 2019, 09:13 AM

The Czech Republic Grand Prix takes place at the Automotodrom Brno on Sunday 6th August, as MotoGP returns after a month’s break. The anticipation ahead of the second half of what has been a brilliantly compelling season so far is reaching fever pitch as Sunday’s race approaches.

Although motorbike racing dates back to 1930 in Brno, the first Czechoslovakian Grand Prix wasn’t held in the town until 1965. The current Automotodrom Brno circuit was first used for GP racing in 1987, hosting the Czechoslovakian GP until 1991. The event was revived again in 1993 as the Grand Prix Ceske republiky, and has taken place every year since. Racing here is hugely popular and attracts huge crowds from across Europe.

Marc Marquez produced three podium finishes in a row before the break, winning last time out in Germany to go top of the World standings. Although he has finished in the top four here over the last three years, you have to go back to 2013 for his last win at this track.

Maverick Vinales started the season very strongly to build up a decent lead in the race for the title, but his performances were disappointing leading up to the midway break. This is a track where he has enjoyed little fortune, so it is hard to see him winning this.

Andrea Dovizioso produced some excellent results in the first half of the season to put himself very much in contention for the title. However, his last podium finish at Brno came way back in 2010 and he won’t exactly brim with confidence this year.

Valentino Rossi has scored consistently well this season, but has won just once, landing race eight at Assen. He has made the podium here on his last three appearances, including second-place last year. Another big ride can be expected. 's View

Marc Marquez brings the best form into the race after some recent good finishes here but, at 7/4 with Bet365, the price looks too short. Valentino Rossi is better priced and is worth an each-way bet at 9/2 from Sky Bet. Jorge Lorenzo (20/1 at Bet365) has a decent record of podium finishes here, and looks to be decent each-way proposition, as is last year’s winner Cal Crutchlow, who will bring you 16/1 at 888Sport. Home favourite Karel Abraham might also tempt some optimistic punters at 350/1 to win the race.’s Top Tip
