  • Marc Márquez is looking for his fifth consecutive MotoGP title and is the -150 favorite to win it
  • Last year, the Spanish rider received -175 initial odds to defend his world crown. Is there any reason to believe that Márquez can be dethroned?
  • All MotoGP odds for the 2020 season are shown below

Marc Márquez not only defended his MotoGP title in 2019. The Spanish rider rewrote the record book.

Márquez won a record 12 races during the 19-race season. He also set one-season marks for points (420) and podiums (18).

He won his fourth consecutive championship and his sixth in seven seasons.

However, as the 2020 campaign unfolds with the Qatar Grand Prix opening season on March 8, oddsmakers are not as sold to Márquez as they were a year ago.

Oddsmakers ranks Márquez as the -150 favorite to win the MotoGP 2020 world title. In 2019, he opened with a -175 odds to retain his championship.

Odds taken on February 26th

Jorge Lorenzo, the 2015 MotoGP World Champion and the only non-Márquez rider to have won the title since 2013, will not be a threat this season. He announced his retirement after the 2019 campaign.

Márquez of excellence

Recently turning 27 earlier this month, Márquez is already riding an unparalleled career in the sport. He has won eight major world awards. Six of these titles are in the first division of MotoGP. They all won while running for the Honda factory team.

Recovering from off-season shoulder surgery, the 2019 campaign slowly began for Márquez. He failed to win the pole, the race or even the fastest lap when the season opened in Qatar.

Things quickly returned to normal for him. Márquez won three of the next four races and four of the next five poles. It also closed the season tight. The Spanish star has won five races in a row and the sixth of the last seven races at the end of the year.

It was his ninth victory of the season, at the Thai Grand Prix, that won the last world title for Márquez.

Márquez finished second in six other races. In his only DNF, he was leading the Grand Prix of the Americas when it crashed.

MotoGP closer than it looks

In gross numbers, Márquez dominated in 2019. But he scratches below the surface and you will see that there is a reasonable cause for the decline in his chances of winning this season.

Although he won more than 63% of the races, what this total does not show is how many closed calls there were at the finish line. The level of MotoGP competition is highlighted by the fact that the result of seven races – Qatar, Italy, Austria, Great Britain, San Marino, Thailand and Australia – was determined by the laps of the last lap.

Value bets to consider

Three more riders managed to get a couple of victories on the circuit last season. Ducati’s Andrea Dovizioso (+900) won in Qatar and Austria. Maverick Vinales (+450) took the Dutch and Malaysian races. Alex Rins (+1400) went on to win the GP of the Americas and Britain.

The Yamaha Viñales found himself on the podium seven times, but also retired from four races. Dovizioso (269) was a second away from Márquez in points. He won nine podiums, but did not win in the last eight races of the season.

Apart from his two victories, the Spaniard Rins only managed another appearance on the podium aboard his Suzuki, a second in his country’s race.

Another Márquez to see

Lorenzo’s retirement means that, for the third consecutive season, Márquez has a new teammate in the Repsol Honda squad. But he is someone he knows quite well.

That’s because his little brother Alex Márquez has switched to MotoGP. He won the Moto2 title last year. He is also a former Moto 3 world champion. He is the only rider to have won these two championships.

Al Marc, Get ready, Go

Honda has just signed Marc Márquez for a four-year extension, and why wouldn’t they? After all, he is the king of MotoGP. Márquez has 40 different MotoGP records, including 62 poles won.

Yes, last season there were some photos on the track. But in most of these photos, it was Márquez who reached the finish line first.

The other top MotoGP riders have shown that they can race with Márquez. But until they show the ability to constantly run in front of him, Márquez remains the best bet in this sport.

Selection: Marc Márquez (-150).
