Odds to Win
Sting Ray Robb
Alex Palou is currently the Indy 500 favorite on FanDuel Sportsbook's IndyCar odds at +600. Scott Dixon (+700), Pato O'Ward (+800), Takuma Sato (+1000) and Felix Rosenqvist (+1100) round out the top five.
Indy 500 Prediction 2023
While promising odds don't guarantee a winner, I predict that Alex Palou will finish in the top spot this weekend. He has momentum on his side coming off a victory at the GMR Grand Prix two weeks ago. He's also performed well at the Indy 500 in the past, finishing as the runner-up in 2021 before placing ninth last year. After finishing no worse than fifth in his last four races, Palou is well-positioned to take the flag here.
Indy 500 Best Bet 2023
There's good value to be had with Palou at +600, but some bettors are looking for more than that. Taking that into account, Marcus Ericsson at +1400 odds is another viable option. Not only is he the returning champion, but he also won the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg earlier this season. We've seen five back-to-back Indy 500 winners in the past and Ericsson is more than talented enough to become the sixth.
