2023 Indy 500 Betting Preview and Predictions 

The Indianapolis 500 is no walk in the park. The 500 miles consisting of 200 laps really takes a lot of strategy. Knowledge of Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a huge piece. With 33 drivers set to take the stage on Sunday, this race will bring nothing less than fireworks as speed isn’t what always wins the Indianapolis 500. Consistency tends to be the key. With 200 laps and 500 miles ahead of them, the Indianapolis 500 is one of the IndyCar’s biggest races of the season.

2023 Indy 500 Best Bets: Top picks Takuma Sato has looked great in practice and qualifying all week long as he’s consistently shown top 10 speed amongst all drivers. With strategy being so important on these 200 laps, Sato really comes in as an odds on favorite  having won the Indianapolis 500 twice already in his career. Winning it most recently in 2020, Sato has looked like one of the top drivers all week long. It’s also worth noting that he’s probably racing in his best car that he’s ever had in the Indianapolis 500 too. Give me Sato to get his third career victory.

The Pick: Takuma Sato to win (+1200)

What a rollercoaster of emotions has it been for Graham Rahal this week. After getting bumped out of the Indianapolis 500 by his teammate Jack Harvey on the last day of qualifying, Rahal found out afterwards that he would be back in the 500. When Stefan Wilson suffered a fractured vertebra in a practice on Monday, Tuesday morning welcomed a shocking surprise as Rahal got the call to replace him. Not only was it an unlikely scenario of events but due to Rahal replacing Wilson, he’ll replace Wilson in his car. Which makes the scenario even more interesting as for the first time in his career, Rahal will be racing with a Honda engine. So when he takes the race on Sunday he’ll be behind a new team, new car, new engine, new brakes, and a new steering wheel. While all of these factors all pose new challenges for Rahal to overcome in just a few days, it may be a blessing in disguise as the 24 car has looked amazing. Rahal is no spring chicken when it comes to the Indianapolis 500 either, finishing in third place twice in his first 15 Indianapolis 500 starts.  He’ll start in the back of the pack at 33 on Sunday but it wouldn’t be the first time that he’s come from behind as he went from 29th to third in 2011 and made up 20 positions from 30th back in 2018. Rahal is a longshot, but so is everyone in the 500 as those 200 laps will offer twists and turns for all drivers. Give me Rahal and his experience and the insane odds to take home the 500 on Sunday.

The Pick: Graham Rahal to win (+4000)

Indy 500 Sleepers 2023

Marco Andretti will make his 18th career Indianapolis 500 start on Sunday and while he hasn’t won this race since 2014, you can never count the four time Indianapolis 500 winner out. Andretti’s experience tops all 33 drivers and his four wins gives him a big time advantage over the field. Andretti will start 24th on Sunday where he’ll look to improve on his 22nd place finish that he had last year. Driving the same car he did a year ago, Andretti is hoping for a different result on Sunday. While he’s definitely a longshot on Sunday, you can never count out the four-time champion.
