2022 Honda Indy Toronto Betting Analysis, Odds Favorites and Prediction

We are beyond the midway point of the IndyCar season, and we have a great battle going on at the top of the driver standings. There are just 25 points separating 1st from 4th right now, as well as a couple of drivers outside of that top 4 who could still get back in it with a strong finish to the season. There is certainly plenty of time for the chasing pack to make a move, as there are still 8 races to come on the season, starting this weekend in Toronto. Points picked up in races are always valuable, but especially so at this time of the year. This will be the first time that IndyCar will be in Toronto since the 2019 season, so plenty of reason to get excited about this race. Let’s now take a look at some of the drivers who might be in the hunt at the Honda Indy Toronto so you can get ready to bet against their IndyCar Odds.

2022 IndyCar Betting Analysis and Prediction for the Honda Indy Toronto Race

Marcus Ericsson

It seems impossible that a driver could win a world championship with just 1 win on the season, but when that win comes at the Indianapolis 500, that changes a little. Ericsson won that race, which delivers double the normal points, and continues to hold onto the top spot in the IndyCar driver standings despite that being his only win thus far in 2022. In the 3 races since the Indy 500, he has had one podium and has not finished worse than 7th, but he will need to be better than that if he is to hold on to the top spot. His last run in Toronto ended with a 20th place finish.

Will Power

While Power is currently sitting in 2nd overall, he is just 20 points off the pace being set by Ericsson. This is a driver who has won a world championship and is accustomed to being in these types of battles, so you have to wonder if he has an edge coming down the home stretch. Power has had a pair of off races this season, but in the other 7, he has a win and has not finished worse than 4th, which is why he is currently sitting so close to the top. His most recent runs in Toronto have not been great, but he did have a win there back in 2016.

Josef Newgarden

Over the last 5 seasons, Newgarden has won a pair of World Championships and has been very close to the top in the other 3. He is right back in the hunt again, sitting in 3rd in the driver standings, just 34 points off the pace. Newgarden has been all over the place this season, and while he has had some poor runs, he also has 3 wins under his belt, so expect him to make a move in the second half of the season. He also has a Toronto win in his past, so he needs to be considered a threat here.

Alex Palou

Winning an IndyCar World Championship in your second full season is a massive accomplishment, but Alex Palou is doing a decent job of trying to defend his title. Right now, he is on 286 points, which has him just 35 points out of the lead. The one thing that Palou needs this season is wins, as he is still searching for his first. That said, he has been on the podium 4 times, so plenty of close calls. This, though, will be his first run in Toronto.
