The event at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is still considered one of the top races in the world. Indianapolis 500 betting odds should be exciting on the 93rd running of the Indy 500 on Sunday, May 24th.
Indianapolis 500 betting has seen a different winner in each of the last seven races. Scott Dixon was the winner last year in Indianapolis 500 betting odds. The winner in Indianapolis 500 betting in 2007 was Dario Franchitti. In 2006 the winner in Indianapolis 500 odds was Sam Hornish Jr. In 2005 the winner was Dan Wheldon. Buddy Rice won a really weak Indy 500 betting field in 2004 while Gil de Ferran did the same in 2003 in Indianapolis 500 betting odds. Helio Castroneves was the Indianapolis 500 betting winner in 2001 and 2002.
It is somewhat surprising to see no repeat winner in the last seven years in Indianapolis 500 odds since almost 24% of the 67 winning drivers of the Indy 500 race have won it more than once. Five drivers have won the race twice in Indianapolis 500 betting but no driver has every won three straight races.
If you are looking at starting positions as an indication of who will win in Indianapolis 500 betting you need look no farther than the pole. 19 Indianapolis 500 betting winners have come from the pole. Eleven Indy 500 odds winners have come from the second starting spot while 10 have come from the third spot. Six winners in Indianapolis 500 betting odds have come from the fourth position while the fifth starting spot actually has seven. Anything beyond the fifth starting position is going to have a difficult time in Indianapolis 500 betting odds. Starting spots are critical in Indy Car racing since it can be very difficult to pass. That means a starting spot within the Top 5 is really critical to having a chance to win the Indy 500.
Indianapolis 500 betting will see the normal contenders to win the race. Defending champion Scott Dixon will be a popular choice as will Tony Kanaan. Former Indianapolis 500 betting winners Dan Wheldon and Helio Castroneves will also be popular although it is still unclear whether or not Castroneves will be in the race due to his legal issues. Danica Patrick will also get attention in Indianapolis 500 betting although her performances don’t warrant it.
