Indy 500 Betting – Power, Patrick Lead Talented Group Of Darkhorses

Indy 500 Betting OddsAnyone doing Belmont Stakes betting will be looking for a darkhorse, and the same thing is going on for the Indy 500 at the end of the month, as there is a solid crew of longshots that can challenge the top tier of the Indy 500 betting favorites.  

Indy 500 Betting – Sunday, May 30, 1:00 PM ET

Will Power (+1000): Power (the best name in sports, by the way) is leading in the points, and he’s the only driver to win multiple races this year, in Sao Paulo and St. Petersburg.  He’s made just two appearances at the Brickyard, coming in 13th  after starting 23rd in 2008, followed by a fifth-place result in 2009.  Only a lack of experience is keeping him from being a favorite.  

Danica Patrick (+1200): Snicker if you must, as Patrick is off to a terrible start in the IndyCar season, which has many questioning her decision to drive in NASCAR part-time.  But she loves the Brickyard with four top-10s in her five starts at Indy, and she came in third last year.  Patrick has the equipment to get the job done, and last week’s 11th-place finish at Kansas was at least encouraging.

 

Marco Andretti (+1500): The latest Andretti to grace the Brickyard, Marco has cooled off at Indy since finishing second in his 2006 debut.  Since then, he’s finished 24th in 2007, third in 2008, and 30th in 2009 as he was wrecked by Mario Moraes (depending on who you listen to) on the first lap.  As for as 2010 is going, Andretti has one top-10, a fifth-place run at Alabama, to go with three finishes outside of the top 10, and one retirement.  Taking Andretti is like picking a Gracie as a UFC betting choice: the family name is legendary, but can he carve out his own legacy? 

Dan Wheldon (+2500): Wheldon is the only driver on this list to have won an Indy 500, taking a drink of the milk in the Victory Lane at Indy in 2005, which was the same year he won the series title in his final year at Andretti Green.  Wheldon finished third here last year in his first season with Panther, but again, he’s inconsistent at Indy with four finishes inside the top four in seven trips here, while the other three races have resulted in finishes of 12th or worse.  He has finished outside the top 10 in two of the last three races, but if we had to ride a darkhorse, Wheldon would be it.  

Vitor Miera (+3500): Last year’s 21st-place finish was Miera’s worst in seven Indy 500s, and he has three top-six finishes as well.  The other three results weren’t lower than 12th, but that’s not going to get you a win here.  Miera got back into the top 10 for the first time in four races at Kansas, but we don’t know if he’s worth it to place a bet online.
