IndyCar 2023 Bommarito Automotive Group 500 Grand Prix Betting Odds and Analysis

IndyCar 2023 Bommarito Automotive Group 500 Grand Prix Betting Odds and Analysis

In any sport decided by a points system, we always reach the stage where the math becomes crucial. We have to look at the number of games/races remaining, as well as the point differential at the top and the likelihood of anyone closing that gap. It may sound complicated, but it is in fact rather straightforward. That is the stage we are at in the 2023 IndyCar season, as there are now just 3 races to come and a leader at the top of the driver standings who can almost certainly taste the championship. The first of those races comes this weekend with the running of the Bommarito Automotive Group 500. Let’s take a look at the major players here to consider in your IndyCar betting odds.


IndyCar Betting Analysis and Prediction for the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 | IndyCar Lines by MyBookie

When: Sunday, August 27 at 3:30 pm ET
Where: Worldwide Technology Raceway
TV / Streaming: NBC, Peacock


Alex Palou

Palou is the man with the math on his side heading into this weekend, as his lead at the top is sitting at 101 points. When you consider that the maximum points a driver can pick up in any race, other than the Indianapolis 500, is 54, he is about as close to winning his 2nd championship as you can get. After a hot streak in the middle of the season, Palou has cooled off a little in the past few races, but he is at the stage where he doesn’t really need to win, just as long as he picks up points. In fact, he could seal the championship this weekend, although this is a track that has not been particularly kind to him.

Scott Dixon

The IndyCar veteran is having another solid season, and while he is still mathematically in the hunt for the championship, he has been around the track long enough to know that it is probably a lost cause at this point. Dixon did keep his hopes of a 7th title alive with a win in Indianapolis last time out, but with over 100 points still to make up, he needs to be perfect in the final 3 races and hope that Palou goes in the tank. Dixon finished 8th in this race in 2022 and needs to do better than that to stay alive.

Josef Newgarden

Here is another former champion who is currently 4 points out of 2nd place and essentially in the same pickle as Dixon in regards the World Championship. No driver is going to concede the crown until it is mathematically done, but I’m sure that all of these guys are well aware of just how unlikely someone other than Palou winning it all this year really is. Newgarden has had some great moments this season, but he has been inconsistent at times, which is what will ultimately cost him. He has won this race in 3 straight seasons and is the obvious favorite.

Scott McLaughlin

The remaining drivers in the group are all out of the championship race, but they will all still be jockeying for the consolation positions over the final few races. For McLaughlin, the goal now is to finish higher than he did last season, which was 4th, his best showing under the IndyCar banner. In his previous 2 runs on this track, he has finished no worse than 4th, so taking him to land on the podium seems a good bet.
