Preview & favorites check

According to the experts’ predictions, there could once again be a Spanish-Italian duel at the Le Mans MotoGP.

The top favorite in the MotoGP Le Mans betting odds is Italian Francesco Bagnaia. After his opening victory in Qatar, the Ducati rider also won the Jerez GP.

However, Jorge Martin is ahead of him in the world championship standings. After his victory in Portugal, he finished fourth at the Austin Grand Prix. He recently crashed at the Jerez GP, reducing his lead in the championship standings to 17 points

In addition to the top duo in the world championship standings, Enea Bastianini, Pedro Acosta and Marc Márquez are also likely to have a say in victory at the French Grand Prix.

Bastianini finished second in Portugal and took third place in Texas, while Acosta also finished on the podium in Austin in second place.

Marc Marquez recently went head-to-head with Bagnaia for victory at the Grand Prix in Jerez. In the end, however, the Spaniard finished second
