Indianapolis 500 Betting Longshots at SBG Global

November 30, 2010 Auto Racing

Indianapolis 500 betting has a lot of longshots for the race on May 24th. Only six drivers have Indianapolis 500 odds of less than 10-1 at the sportsbook.

That means there are some intriguing longshots in Indianapolis 500 betting for people to consider.

Indianapolis 500 betting has pole sitter Helio Castroneves the 3-1 favorite in the 33-card field. Scott Dixon, Dario Franchitti, Ryan Briscoe, Tony Kanaan and Danica Patrick also have Indianapolis 500 betting odds of less than 10-1 at the sportsbook.

Any driver that has Indianapolis 500 betting odds that are more than 10-1 is really considered a longshot. Some of those drivers might actually be in the field which is 7.5-1 in Indianapolis 500 betting. John Andretti is one of those in the Indianapolis 500 betting field. Marco Andretti is another of the longshot drivers and he is on the board at 12-1 in Indianapolis 500 betting. Rarely does an Andretti win the 500 despite the big name. Mario Andretti raced at Indy for a quarter of a century and only tasted victory once as sports betting stats show. Michael Andretti raced at Indy 16 times and never won. Marco Andretti has finished second and third in his three tries as sports betting stats show. He will be in the third row on Sunday, May 24th. John Andretti will be well back in the Indianapolis 500 betting field, if he makes it at all. "This is the only race in the world that counts,” John Andretti said, "You’ve got to understand my family history. … When I was a kid, I was here. When I was grown up, I was here. This place has been good to our family, a little bit, and rough on it in a lot of ways. But that’s the passion of this place.”

Marco Andretti may be 12-1 on the Indianapolis 500 odds board but he is not the only longshot driver with a chance. Dan Wheldon is a former Indy 500 champion and he is listed at 15-1 in Indianapolis 500 odds. Graham Rahal is the son of Bobby Rahal and he is listed at 15-1 in Indianapolis 500 betting. Paul Tracy has done well in the past at Indy and he is 20-1 in Indianapolis 500 odds. Vitor Meira and Scott Sharp might even be possible darkhorse candidates at longshot Indianapolis 500 betting odds of 30-1 and 35-1.
