Bommarito Automotive Group 500 Picks

IndyCar Betting Odds

Just three races remain in the IndyCar season, beginning with Saturday’s Bommarito Automotive Group 500 on NBCSN. Team Penske drivers hold four of the top five spots in the IndyCar standings and those drivers are getting the bulk of the betting action for Saturday’s race. Only 42 points separate the top five drivers, with Josef Newgarden leading, while Will Power is in fifth place. Let’s look at the race for Saturday and IndyCar picks.

Top Contenders

The four Penske drivers along with Chip Ganassi driver Scott Dixon are the top contenders to win on Saturday. Newgarden is leading the standings but Power is coming off a win at Pocono. Penske drivers have won four straight and five of the last six. Newgarden leads with 494 points, while Dixon is 18 points back. Helio Castroneves is 22 points behind, Simon Pagenaud is 26 points back and Power is 42 points back.

Newgarden said to Fansided that he doesn’t mind the pressure of being in the lead. “I don’t know why you ever wouldn’t want to be the leader,” Newgarden said, “If you can be in a position where you’re leading the championship, I always think it’s better than having a deficit because to me, I don’t really approach a race weekend different if I’m leading or if I’m trying to catch up.”

Newgarden said that he knows it will be tough to hang onto the lead. “I think for us it’ll be hard to hold on to it because everyone is so close. You have one little mistake or one little mess-up in the next race and it’s very easy to slip back. So we’ve just got to try and stay out front if we can, and the more that we can build a points gap, that only helps … We need to just stay at least in touch with the lead as much as possible and make sure that we have a shot at winning the championship on our own terms when we go to [the season finale at] Sonoma.”

Race Notes

This race takes place at Gateway Motorsports Park, which is a 1.25 mile oval. The event was first held as a CART race and then was held as an Indy Racing League event but the race has not been held in over a decade.

IndyCar Picks

This is a key race for Pagenaud and Power as they look to gain ground in the title race. We should get enough value at the best sportsbooks if one of the two wins, so I will take both drivers in this race.
