Formula 1 odds, picks, race times: Surprising 2022 Belgian Grand Prix prediction, best F1 bets by top model
The 2022 Formula 1 calendar continues with the 2022 Rolex Belgian Grand Prix at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Stavelot, Belgium on Sunday. Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz is the +260 (risk $100 to win $260) betting favorite in Caesars Sportsbook’s latest 2022 Belgian Grand Prix odds. He is followed by Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton, who comes in at +275. Defending champion Max Verstappen set the fastest lap in practice on Friday and is rated at +350. Verstappen is 80 points clear of Charles Leclerc (15-2) in the drivers’ standings, while Red Bull has opened up a 97-point lead over Ferrari for the constructors’ championship.
The green flag drops at 9 a.m. ET on Sunday, and after a rainy practice Friday, the weather is expected to be ideal for race day. Before analyzing the 2022 Belgian Grand Prix starting grid and making your own Formula 1 picks, be sure to check out the latest 2022 Belgian GP predictions and betting tips from SportsLine’s proven projection model.
Developed by Fantasy pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this exclusive Formula 1 prediction model simulates each race 10,000 times, taking into account factors such as track history and recent results. He has had a solid history of success in motorsport, correctly predicting seven winners during the 2021 NASCAR season and his projected rankings have predicted winners in multiple race formats.
The model has been red-hot when it comes to picking Formula 1 racing events dating back to 2021. He took Leclerc’s two wins in 2022, and at the 2021 Mexican Grand Prix the model was strongly supporting Verstappen as his first choice. The result: Verstappen dominated the field and rode away with a surprise win. The model followed that up by calling Verstappen’s win at the Rolex Emilia Romagna GP in April. Anyone who followed the model’s lead on these games saw huge returns
Now the model has logged on to the 2022 Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix and has just released its coveted picks and ranking projections. You can head to SportsLine now to see the full 2022 Belgian GP standings projection.
Top 2022 Belgian Formula 1 GP Predictions
A huge shock: McClure loses current race favorite Carlos Sainz (13-5). The Ferrari driver took his first career victory at Silverstone last month and has been in regular contention throughout the season, but sits fifth in the drivers standings after a DNF in Austria.
Sainz also had a DNF in Baku, Italy and Australia and this inconsistency plagued him and Ferrari as a whole. In Friday practice, Sainz set the fifth-fastest lap and he has never finished in the top 10 in seven career F1 starts at Spa, including three retirements and one DNS. See who the model supports here.

The model is also aiming for a triple-digit longshot to make a surprising climb in the standings, and a driver outside the top five of the Belgian GP odds table to earn a surprising podium. Anyone who backs him could hit it big. You can find out who it is and see all of the model’s F1 picks and predictions on SportsLine.
