Power, Pagenaud Favorites to Win 2019 Indy 500

Odds to win Indy 500

The biggest race on the IndyCar schedule takes place on Sunday with the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500. Will Power won the 102nd running of the Indy 500 last year and he shares the top odds with pole sitter Simon Pagenaud at +750 to drive to victory lane in this year’s race.

5Dimes has Power and Pagenaud as the favorites at +750 followed by Ed Carpenter and Alexander Rossi at +840, Josef Newgarden at +850, Colton Herta at +1100, Spencer Pigot and Scott Dixon at +1300, Helio Castroneves at +1500 and Sebastien Bourdais at +2000 to round out the top 10 on the oddsboard.

Standout Stats

  • The winner of the Indy 500 has qualified third or worse in each of the last nine runnings.
  • There hasn’t been a back-to-back winner in the Indy 500 since Helio Castroneves did so in 2001 and 2002. Will Power will look to reverse that trend.
  • Will Power has led at least one lap in seven of his 11 runnings at Indianapolis, including each of the last six races in a row. He has finished on the podium just twice over that span, including winning last year’s running.
  • Alexander Rossi has led at least one lap in all three of his Indy 500 races and won his first running in 2016. He has also finished in the top 10 in all three races and in the top five in two of those.
  • Simon Pagenaud has finished outside of the top five in all seven of his Indy 500 runnings with an average finishing position of 12.1. However, last year was his best qualifying effort (besides this year) as he found himself on the outside of the front row and finished sixth, but led just one lap.
  • Josef Newgarden has done well qualifying at Indianapolis, starting the race in the top 10 in five of his seven runnings there, and qualified eighth this year. That being said, he has had an average finish position of 17.4 and only once finished in the top five.
  • Ed Carpenter has qualified first or second in four of the last six Indy 500s but finished outside the top 10 in five of those races. Last year he led the most laps at 65 and finished second.

My Best Bet for the Indy 500

Alexander Rossi +840

Rossi has an average finish position of fourth over his three Indy 500 runnings and has led at least one lap in each of those races. He also picked up the checkered flag in the fourth race of the season at Long Beach and he qualified ninth for this year’s Indy 500. Lastly, Rossi has already driven to victory lane once at Indianapolis in his first running so he knows what it takes to earn the win.
