Understanding the Portland E-Prix 2023
This will be the first-ever edition of the Portland E-Prix, as the American leg of the Formula E World Championship is typically held in New York. However, with New York’s course currently out of action, Portland has gained the right to host this event.
The Portland International Raceway will be one of the longer tracks in the Formula E season, with a length of 3.19 kilometers. Twelve turns are required in each lap, with several critical junctures on the course – the straight ahead of turn one, where overtaking will be key, as well as between turns nine and ten.
What’s most important to understand about this year’s Portland E-Prix is the relevance of this weekend to the season overall. This will be the 12th race of a 16-race season and could well have a significant bearing on the outcome of the 2022-23 season. Here’s a look at the current top five in the 2022–23 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship:
Clearly, it’s a neck-and-neck affair at the top of the standings this season. With five drivers still capable of lifting the year-end trophy, can one man grab the bull by the horns this weekend and gain the box seat heading into the final stages of the 2022-23 season? Read on for our Formula E Portland 2023 predictions, where we look to answer this question.
2023 Portland E-Prix Betting Tips
For those who love to bet on electric car races, then you’re in the right place. We’ve looked at the 2023 Portland E-Prix odds to win and have come up with a full analysis of the best bets. Here are our top 2023 Portland E-Prix betting tips:
Pascal Wehrlein to Win @ 5.00 (4/1)
It’s no secret that Pascal Wehrlein has had a patchy season so far. On the one hand, the German has the most race wins out of any man in 2022-23, claiming three trophies from 11 races. On the other hand, he’s finished outside the top five in over half of his race starts and has only graced a podium once in his past eight races.
While Wehrlein is leading the standings right now, he must be feeling the heat. Either this weekend will see another underwhelming performance, or he’ll begin to slip out of contention. Or, the German will step up when required and claim a fourth win of the year. There’s a good chance it will be the latter, and we say backing Wehrlein is the best bet to make this weekend.
Jake Dennis to Win @ 4.50 (7/2)
If Wehrlein doesn’t come through clutch in Portland, Jake Dennis will likely have a lot to do with it. The Brit is a polar-opposite to Wehrlein – of his past four races, he’s seen the podium every time, with three runner-up finishes. Add to this a victory in the first event of the season, and Dennis sits just one point behind the German on the overall standings.
Should others fail to step up this weekend, you can count on Jake Dennis being his usual consistent self, giving the Brit a decent shot at victory in Portland.
Maximilian Gunther to Win @ 7.00 (6/1)
This one’s a long shot, but hear us out. Last event in Jakarta, Maximilian Gunther made history by converting his second successive pole position into a race win. The German’s last two results have both been on the podium, coming third and first in the two Indonesia races.
While his poor results the rest of the season see Gunther on longer odds, we say he’s undervalued here and worth a bet, even being at 7.00 (6/1). Sure, it’s a big ask for him to back up and win two races in a row after claiming his first-ever victory, but we say it’s a wager worth making.
Our Formula E Portland 2023 Predictions
This weekend sees electric car racing hit Portland, Oregon, for the first time as the 2022–23 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship reaches a critical juncture of its season. Five drivers are still capable of winning this year, and it could well all come down to this weekend. We say that Germany’s Pascal Wehrlein will rise to the occasion. But if you want more emotions from Formula E betting tips – don’t discount the last event’s history-maker, Maximilian Gunther.
