New bike, new attitude and possibly a new champion for AMA Monster Energy Supercross as the series enters Round 6 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis?

Ken Roczen has emerged as the top contender in the 450 class entering Saturday’s event (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN), taking over the points lead with consecutive victories in the first two of three races in Indianapolis.

The layout will change for Saturday, but Roczen, 26, again will be favored given how well he has adapted to his No. 94 Honda, which was overhauled in the offseason.

But it’s as much about the mental approach for Roczen, who skipped the Pro Outdoor Motocross season last year as he became a father for the first time. He has won consecutive events for the first time in four years while weathering a disappointment of having a win slip away in Round 3 because of a lapped rider.

The native of Germany said he’s “much more mature” in 2021.

“I’m mentally in a completely different spot,” said Roczen, who is trying to follow longtime rival and friend Eli Tomac as a first-time Supercross champion in his mid-20s for the second season in a row. “Back then I feel like I rode the highs a lot more than I do now. In general, I just quite a bit older, and a lot has happened between there and now.”

Here are the pertinent details for watching Round 6 of the 2021 Supercross season Saturday:

Max Verstappen is the PointsBet Sportsbook odds favorite to win the 2022 Singapore Grand Prix on the Marina Bay Street course to stretch his current win streak to six consecutive. He shows odds of -200 this week.

Formula 1 did not compete in Singapore in 2020 or 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but Verstappen has podium finishes in his last two attempts on this track. he was second in 2018 and third in 2019. In the first 15 races of this season, he has failed to stand on the podium only twice and has an average finish of 2.73.

With minus odds, the way to determine a payout is by subtraction. In order for a bettor to earn $100, he must wager $200 this week; with that wager, he will get back his initial stake and winnings of $100.

For bettors more comfortable with fractional odds, a bet of +300 is the same as 3/1.

Charles Leclerc is ranked second this week with +400 odds. He has two previous Singapore GP starts to his credit with a best of second in 2019. He is coming off back-to-back podium finishes with a third in the Dutch GP and a second at Monza.

Ranked third is Carlos Sainz, Jr. with a line of +1100. He has top-five finishes in four of his last five starts, but only one of these, a third in the Belgian GP, was on the podium. Sainz is one of four winners other than Verstappen this season. His victory came in the British GP.

Lewis Hamilton shows a line of +1200. His last win came last fall in the Saudi Arabian GP and the Mercedes team has struggled to contend for victory in 2022. They are improving, however, with eight top-fives in the last nine races. Hamilton has two wins in his last three Singapore starts, which came in 2017 and 2018.

Rounding out the top five is Hamilton’s teammate George Russell at +1800. He has not won, but has shown remarkable consistency with top-fives in all but one race. Notably, his only bad finish came in his home GP in England. Russell has one previous start at Marina Bay; he finished last in the 2019 race. He finished fourth in 2019 as part of a four-race streak of top-fives.

The most recent Singapore GP winner from 2019, Sebastian Vettel is a longshot at +50000.
