The Iowa Corn 300 will be the 11th auto racing betting of the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series and will take place on Sunday at the Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa. Here are the online gambling odds to win this race, for people who bet on auto racing.
Scott Dixon (+310)
The leader of the drivers’ standings is coming off his first win of the season, a victory at the Kohler Grand Prix on June 25th. Dixon has only finished outside of the top in Iowa on two occasions (16th in 2013 and 18th in 2015). In addition to that he has six top five finishes there; 4th in 2008, 5th in 2009, 3rd in 2011, 4th again in 2012 and 2014, and again 3rd in 2016.
Josef Newgarden (+510)
Newgarden won the 2016 edition of the race for his second Indy Car Series win and second win at Iowa Speedway – the first came in the 2011 Indy Lights –, beating Will Power and Dixon and setting a record for most laps led (282). Newgarden had been the runner-up in 2014 and 2015 (then known as Iowa Corn Indy 300). Coincidentally, he was the runner-up to Dixon at Road America on Sunday before last.
Helio Castroneves (+610)
The Brazilian veteran had his first podium and best finish of the season in the Kohler GP. Castroneves came close to winning at Iowa Speedway in 2010, when he finished the Iowa Corn Indy 250 second behind compatriot Tony Kanaan. Other than that, he has six top 10 finishes in Iowa – 8th in 2007, 2013 and 2014, 7th in 2009 and 2011, and 6th in 2012.
Tony Kanaan (+710)
Like his fellow Brazilian driver, Kanaan is another auto racing betting fave. As mentioned above, he won the 2010 2010 Iowa Corn Indy 250, came in second place the following year, and placed 3rd in 2012, 2013, and 2014.
Simon Pagenaud (+810)
The current, reigning and defending IndyCar champion posted his third straight top 5 finish at Road America (4th place). The French wheelman Iowa record includes a 6th place in 2013, a 5th place in 2012, and a 4th place last year.
Ryan Hunter Reay (+1225)
Reay is the only multiple winner as well as the only back-to-winner of the Iowa Corn 300 under its various iterations. He won the 2012 Iowa Corn Indy 250, and the 2014 and 2015 Iowa Corn Indy 300 (and was the runner-up in 32013). Reay has finished outside the top 10 in each race this season except the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg (4th) and the IndyCar Grand Prix (3rd).
Takuma Sato (+1525)
Entering what fans who bet on auto racing call “long shots,” Sato finished out of the top 10 for the first time since the Indy 500 at the Kohler Grand Prix (19th place), and he has not done particularly well at Iowa Speedway either, also never finishing in the top 10 there in seven starts – which is reflected by his auto racing betting odds.
