IndyCar Long Beach Betting, Odds & Analysis for Favorites Drivers

We are just two races into the new IndyCar season, so you would certainly expect things to still be tight at the top, which they indeed are. That said, it is some very familiar faces sitting atop the driver standings at the moment, which tells us that we might be in for another great championship battle this season, which seems to be the case every single year. Where F1 and other motor sports seem to have 1 or 2 dominant drivers, IndyCar has a bunch who could potentially win it all every season. As we head to Long Beach for the 3rd race of the season, which is set to go this Sunday afternoon, we are going to take a moment to look at the current drivers sitting at the top of the standings, so you can bet against the IndyCar odds.


IndyCar Betting Analysis and Prediction for Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach | IndyCar Odds

When: Sunday, April 16 at 4:00 pm ET
Where: Long Beach
TV / Streaming: NBC, Peacock


Pato O’Ward

For a couple of seasons, O’Ward got himself on the brink of a championship, only to come up a little short both times. Last season, he was never really in the hunt, finishing 7th overall in what was a truly disappointing season. It looks as though he may have already shaken that off, though, as he is out to a fast start in 2023, finishing 2nd in both races to this point, which is good enough to have him on top of the driver standings. He is still looking for that elusive first win of the year, but given that he finished 5th in Long Beach last year in a down season, he might be one to watch on Sunday.

Marcus Ericsson

After a breakout 2021 season, where he finished 6th overall and won a couple of races, Ericsson made the next big step forward last year by winning the Indianapolis 500. The extra points gathered by winning the biggest race of all kept him at or near the top of the standings for most of the season, but he failed to build on that momentum, slowly slipping down the standings to once again finish 6th for the second straight season. Ericsson did not have to wait for his first win of the season this year, getting it in the opening race of the season.

Scott Dixon

With 6 world championships under his belt, you cannot deny that Dixon is one of the best drivers ever to hit the track in IndyCar. Even when he doesn’t win it all, he always seems to be in the hunt all the way to the finish, running 4th and 3rd overall in the last 2 seasons. He is in a familiar spot after the first 2 races of the year, sitting in 3rd in the driver standings. He ran 5th in Texas in the previous race after a podium finish in Round 1. In this corresponding race in 2022, Dixon ended up finishing 6th.

Josef Newgarden

There has to be some level of frustration for Newgarden, as he has finished 2nd overall in each of the last 3 seasons, something that will certainly not sit well with a 2-time champion. Newgarden has made a habit of having a poor run in the opening race of the season, which he did again this year, only to bounce back quickly. He did that with a win in the second race of the year, and he may be set to win again, just as he did last year on the Long Beach circuit.
