Alabama is the Deep South and the Deep South is stock car betting racing country, not open wheel bet on Indy car racing country.
But that’s all about to change as the IRL wagering series takes the South by storm when some of the best open-wheel drivers in sports betting descend on Birmingham, AL for the Indy Grand Prix of Alabama on April 11th.
So far in this young Indy betting season the curiously named Will Power has dominated the sports betting. After taking the checkered flag at the St. Pete Indy betting event he is no two for two in the road course Indy car betting events and has won two of the three Indy car wagering events held this year. With that kind of success he will almost certainly be the Indy wagering odds favorite to win the Alabama event as well.
But the Grand Prix of Alabama will held on the Barber Motorsports Park, a closed course, that will present a very different kind of Indy betting challenge for Power and his fellow Indy wagering drivers. For Power to win three of the first four Indy betting races would be almost impossible given how difficult it is to win a single race in one of sports betting’s most difficult racing leagues and on two different Indy racing betting course types.
The bet on Indy odds simply aren’t in Powers favor for this Indy betting competition. Look for defending champ and Indy wagering legend Dan Wheldon to make a strong showing; the same for former Indy car betting champ Dario Franchitti and Helio Castroneuves who has been running well of late. Nothing against Power, but it’s simply much too difficult a feat in sports betting to win three of four Indy Car betting events.
