The 2016 MotoGP season is now in our rearview mirrors and many have began to focus on the results of the latest post-season 2017 team tests held at the Valencia circuit. The test's results can help one better indicate the success for riders in the rapidly approaching 2017 season. With several of the top riders switching to new teams, most notably Jorge Lorenzo who will be moving to Ducati from Movistar Yamaha, and Maverick Vinales who will be leaving the Ecstar Suzuki team to fill Lorenzo’s seat aboard the Yamaha. While Marquez took home the championship with plenty of points to spare, the 2016 season saw a record nine different GP winners, making it increasingly difficult to determine how each rider will likley perform in the upcoming season. Because MotoGP is exponentially more popular in Europe than North America, its not surprising to see online Vegas-style Gambling Houses in the U.K. offering betting on MotoGP races. Like any other sport one can gamble on, odds are determined based on previous history and statistics to figure out the win/lose ratios. The people tasked with doing this don’t always get it right, but nonetheless are very good at what they do, so when yesterday some of the UK’s biggest gambling houses released their official odds for 2017, it became clear to many that this is at the least, a source worth taking a quick look at as these gambling houses are successful for a reason. William Hill being the biggest house of the three whose numbers are listed below, they may be worth paying extra attention to in particular. Below are the projected numbers from three of the Uk’s biggest gambling houses for the riders’ odds in the 2017 MotoGP championship…………
