Which driver among Scott Dixon, Josef Newgarden, Colton Herta, and Alex Palou have the best shot of winning the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama?
When was the last time you saw a Formula 1 race where four drivers offered the same odds as the favorites and those odds were at +800? That’s how competitive this Sunday’s Grand Prix at Alabama projects to be.
Alex Palou won last year’s GP at Birmingham. But Newgarden has won 3 of the 10 total races. The first Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama happened back in 2010. So Newgarden’s dominance means something.
Josef is having a great 2022. So he gets the nod over Palou and the other chalks.
Name the driver with the best shot of taking the checkered flag among O’Ward, McLaughlin, Castroneves, and Power?
Will Power finished third at St. Petersburg, fourth at the Grand Prix of Texas, and fourth at the Grand Prix of Long Beach. It’s only a matter of time before Power, one of the very best in the history of Indy car racing in the U.S., gets a win.
He could win in Alabama because Will took the checkered flag at the 2011 event and the 2012 event. So if you want to choose among the three, Will Power looks like the best play.
Which driver at odds of +2000 to +2500 has the best shot of winning the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama?
Simon Pagenaud didn’t race great at Long Beach. He finished nineteenth. But Pagenaud is too good of a driver to make it two bad races in a row.
Pagenaud finished eighth at Texas. One of Indy Car’s most famous drivers can turn it on at a moment’s notice. Not only that, but he’s won at this racetrack.
So if you’re looking to back a driver in this odds category. Consider putting a few bucks behind Pagenaud.
Among the +2800 to +3300 underdogs, which driver has the best chance of obtaining Indy glory?
It’s impossible to look past Jimmie Johnson. Yes, JJ hasn’t adjusted as quickly to Indy Racing as some though he might. But he did finish sixth at Texas.
So, it’s really only a matter of time before one of the greatest NASCAR drivers in history figures things out. He could figure things out on Sunday to the tune of a 33-to-1 score.
Juan Pablo Montoya is one of the greatest Indy drivers of all time. So JPM is another good choice if you’re looking to back a massive underdog.
