Current Indy 500 Odds



Sunday May 29th 2011 will mark the 95th running of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing”, The Indy 500. This years race will mark the 100th anniversary of the event. The first Indy 500 was in 1911. The race was suspended during WWI (1917-18) and WWII (1942-45). The 100th running of the event will not occur until 2016.

The Indy 500 is one of the most prestigious motorsport events in the world, in a class with Le Mans and the Monaco Grand Prix, though many would argue that the Indianapolis 500 is in a class by itself.

Here is a look at a few of the other top contenders in this years race followed by the current updated odds.

Scott Dixon (6/1)

Dixon is from New Zealand and was the 7/2 favorite to win in 2009 after winning in 2008. He led for the most laps in 2009 (73) and has been putting up some very fast recent practice times.

Dario Franchitti (4/1)

Franchitti was the 2007 winner. In 2009, he led for the third-most laps (50) and had a shot at winning if not for a bad pit stop. Franchitti won the race last year at odds of 4/1.

Ryan Briscoe (8/1)

Briscoe is a big threat from Penske Racing, as is fellow Australian Will Power (6/1). They’re both world class road racers who are adapting to ovals. Briscoe finished 15th at Indy in 2009, while Power was 5th.


One of the more popular ways to bet the Indy 500, as well at Auto Racing in general, is head to head matchups. As the race draws near, we will post the current odds from several top sportsbooks for head to head matchups, one driver against another. Head to head wagering offers the bettor the best bang for their buck.

In the meantime, here are the current odds to win the Indy 500.
