PAGENAUD (+1400), the defending 500 champ, sits second in the overall standings. If he is to repeat, he’ll have to win all the way from Row 9. We haven’t had a back-to-back winner since Castroneves in 2001 and 2002, but Pagenaud has the goods to break that drought.

JOSEF NEWGARDEN (+1000) doesn’t have an Indy 500 win, but there’s a first time for everything. He has been on a roll, sitting third in the standings with one victory and 191 points. Newgarden won in the second end of the doubleheader in Iowa last time out, and he has back-to-back top-5 finishes. No one is hotter lately.

Odds

Indianapolis 500 long-shot bets

If you’re looking for a dark horse, look no further than Arrow McLaren SP driver PATO O’WARD (+4000). He is fourth in standings with 162 points, ahead of the likes of Power and Graham Rahal. O’Ward will fly under the radar leading up to Sunday’s big race, and he is a tremendous value. He enters with four finishes of eighth or better in his past five starts, including a runner-up finish in Race 2 at the Grand Prix at Road America on July 12.

Andretti Motorsport driver COLTON HERTA (+2000) isn’t as big of an underdog as O’Ward, but he is still a pretty strong value. He is seventh in the overall standings with 140 points, and he is on a roll with three top-5 finishes, including a season-best, fourth-place finish at the GMR Grand Prix on July 4. He struggled in Iowa in a doubleheader in mid-July, but other than that he has been rock solid.
