IndyCar 2022 Portland Grand Prix Betting Picks, Odds Favorites and Prediction

In terms of a championship race, things simply don’t get any better than they are right now in IndyCar. There are just 2 races remaining in the season and the top 4 drivers are separated by a mere 17 points in the standings. That is absolutely amazing and will make for some serious excitement over the next couple of weeks. The first of the remaining races will go this coming Sunday in Portland, and it goes without saying that it’s a huge race for the drivers still in with a shot at winning it all. There is absolutely zero margin for error over the next 2 weeks, and you do have to wonder how much the standings will change after all is said and done. Let’s take a closer look at the current top 4 so you can get all set to bet against the IndyCar Odds for the Grand Prix of Portland.

2022 IndyCar Betting Analysis and Prediction for the Grand Prix of Portland Race

Will Power

Power only has one win on the season, with that one coming in the early stages, but it has been his high level of consistency that has taken him to the top of the driver standings. Besides that win, he has had 8 other races where he has cracked the top 5. Given how tight things are, it’s impossible to say that a pair of podium finishes to close out would be enough, especially if one of the chasing pack wins. One thing to pay attention to here is that while Power did not have a great run in Portland last season, he did win there in 2019, so he has to be considered a threat.

Josef Newgarden

If you were to put me on the spot and make me to choose a champion for 2022, I would more than likely pick Newgarden. He already has 5 wins on the season and came away with the victory at Gateway in the last race on the schedule. He has slowly but surely been closing the gap at the top and looks poised to steal this thing in the final week of the season. Newgarden has finished 5th in each of his last 2 runs in Portland, but that recent form suggests that he might do better this weekend.

Scott Dixon

While I am leaning toward Newgarden, it would not be very wise to discount Dixon, which I mistakenly did a few weeks ago. This is a driver who has been one of the best ever in IndyCar, so it was definitely a mistake to count him out with so many races still to come. A win in Nashville a couple of races ago, which was his 2nd of the season, moved him right back into the thick of the leaders, and while an 8th place finish last time out was not great, he is very much in the hunt. Dixon was 3rd in Portland last time he ran there.

Marcus Ericsson

It wasn’t so very long ago that Ericsson sat at the top of the driver standings, aided in large part by winning the Indianapolis 500, but he has slowly been on the slide and is the one driver in this group that I think is the biggest longshot to win it all. He has only been on the podium once since his signature win and was 7th in his last race in Portland. A longshot at best.
