Indy 500 Props: All Eyes on Larson

Dare to be great. Kyle Larson will attempt the “double” by winning both the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 on the same day. Should Larson pull this off, he’ll be GOATed for the rest of his life. The IndyCar odds and NASCAR odds are both against him, however. And that makes this feat even more thrilling.

You can bet online on Larson and other drivers in many ways. Thanks to all the Indy 500 props, you don’t need to play the lottery and hope for a win (+700) to cash. Nay. You can make money on Larson via a variety of markets.

Larson To Lead Chevy Drivers – Top Chevrolet Car (+425)

If you’re just noticing Larson now, think of him as the Tony Stark of auto racing. His ingenuity and versatility allow him to drive on almost any surface or course. That’s why he’s got short odds to win the Indy 500 or even finish in the top three at +175. A top-five finish is at -115 and a top-10 is at -375. But his best odds are with Chevrolet.

Instead of betting him to win or finish in the top three, you can find a happy medium by betting him to lead all Chevy drivers at +425. He’ll have to beat the Team Penske trio of Josef Newgarden (+375), Scott McLaughlin (+400) and Will Power (+550). But this is a long race and Larson could have the edge down the stretch.

 

Larson Edges Team Penske Trio – Group Winner (+300)

Alternatively, you can bet on Larson to beat the Penske trio at +300. There is a chance someone like Alexander Rossi (+575) or Pato O’Ward (+600) wins the race outside of Larson or Penske. Betting the group winner props removes these other drivers from the equation. Larson just has to beat this terrible trio, who are all starting in the front.

Newgarden is the defending champion but is snakebitten this year. Power won in 2018 and finished in the top five in 2019, but he has not placed above 14th in the last four Indy 500s. As for McLaughlin, he destroyed qualifying and set records. But he too has not placed higher than 14th in three attempts at The Brickyard.

 

Can McLaren End Drought? Winning Team – Arrow McLaren (+230)

Another way to bet Larson is to side with his team, Arrow McLaren. The world-famous constructor has not won at the Indy 500 since 1976. That’s nearly 50 years.

Larson will be joined by former winner Rossi, who conquered the Indianapolis 500 as a rookie in 2016. O’Ward is another popular driver with short odds to win. And Callum Ilott is a Briton long shot at 60/1 to win. But you never know.

 

Larson To Pull off the Double – Win Indy 500 and Coca-Cola 600 (+3500)

In 57 years since Cale Yarborough made the “Double” (then known as “The Cross-over”), only a handful of drivers have attempted this. Most notably, Tony Stewart tried in 1999 and 2001. His latter results are the best thus far as he finished sixth in the Indy 500 and third in the Coca-Cola 600. Larson is the prohibitive favorite in the latter at +450. And he’s +700 to win the Indy 500. So if you parlay the two via this prop, it’s at 35/1.

This is worth a flier if you’re a Larson fan. A sounder bet is for him to finish in the top three in both at +600. If anyone can pull it off, it’s Larson. Either way, it’s worth watching him attempt this bold feat. And it’s even better if you can cash on this IndyCar betting odds.
