Four Races Remain
The MotoGP 2022 World Championship is getting crazy close. With only a few races remaining in the season, the top two riders are separated by only 18 points in the standings.
Will Fabio Quartararo be able to maintain his lead or can Francesco Bagnaia bounce back from his fifth crash of the season to take his first-ever world title?
Let’s check the latest MotorSports odds, stats, injury reports, and MotorSports lines for Thailand Grand Prix. We’ve plenty of Vegas MotorSports odds for you to consider.
Quartararo Looking to Bounce Back
Quartararo has been having a spectacular 2022 season. Despite a few recent struggles, he sits 18 points ahead of rival Bagnaia after an exciting race in Japan last weekend.
Quartararo held on to his starting position and earned a few points while Bagnaia crashed out trying to pass the Frenchman on the very last lap of the race. The MotoGP betting odds have Fabio as a -150 favorite to win the World Title at this point.
Despite Quartararo’s exciting season, things have slowed down recently for the defending champion. He has only finished on the podium once in the past two months and has not won a race in that time. Fabio needs to channel the version of himself that won the title last year if he expects to hold off the Italian.
The Italian Dream
Bagnaia is driving an Italian Ducati and is showing why he’s been such a valued prospect in Moto2 over the years. Bagnaia has been in incredible form recently, cutting into Quartararo’s championship lead at an astounding rate.
Last weekend in Japan was a tough break for the Italian as he made an opportunistic move on the very last lap and spun out trying to pass Quartararo.
Right now, Bagnaia’s MotoGP betting odds are +120 to win the championship. The Italian was all the way down at +500 at points of the season, but has been so tremendous down the stretch that he almost stole the lead away last weekend. Bagnaia will be looking for a mega race in Thailand to cut that lead back down and work towards his first MotoGP world title.
MotoGP 2022 Head-to-head Results
Quartararo (three_ and Bagnai (five) have won multiple races, but Quartararo’s consistency in avoiding crashes has allowed him to remain ahead in the points.
Aleix Espargaro arguably has been the most consistent of any driver, as he has not crashed a single time all season. This has allowed him to sneak into third place in the standings, a great result for him and his team.
Despite the great efforts, Las Vegas Sportsbooks have Espargaro as an +1800 underdog to win the title.

Thailand Grand Prix Prediction
My pick for this race is Quartararo. The French rider has been consistent, dominant and, most importantly, smart. Quartararo doesn’t have to challenge himself too much and he just needs to remain ahead of Bagnaia each week. Quartararo is the smarter and more skilled driver and should win the Championship.
Quartararo’s speed and passing ability is undeniable, and if he starts in the top three, I not only expect him to win the race, but he may even secure the world championship in the next two races.
