The Best Indianapolis 500 Prop Bets To Lock In

  • Takuma Sato is +105 to finish within the top 10 and -110 to lead a lap.
  • Scott Dixon has odds of -165 to finish ahead of Colton Herta.
  • The Under 20.5 is the favorite to be the number on the winning car.

INDIANAPOLIS - The Indianapolis 500 is set to take place on Sunday. As one of the biggest events in motorsports, there are many prop bets to choose from.

Takuma Sato has won this event twice in the past four years. Not only has he won, but he placed third in 2019 as well.

Given his success in this event, there’s ample reasoning to think he can come back with another big performance this year.

Takuma Sato To Lead A Lap

  • Yes -110
  • No -110

Sato will have his work cut out for him as he starts in the fifth row, but he’s placed third from the same position so there shouldn’t be too much concern in that area.

Not only does Sato have value to lead a lap, but also to place in the top 10. The defending champion has odds of +105 to have a top-10 finish. As mentioned, he’s hit this mark in three of his last four Indy 500’s, giving his plus-value odds value.

Sato hasn’t been great thus far this season, but he’s too successful at the Indy 500 to fade.

Scott Dixon (-165) H2H Against Colton Herta

These two drivers are the betting favorites on sports betting sites to win the race, but Dixon is the much safer choice in this prop.

Scott Dixon vs Colton Herta H2H Odds

  • Dixon -165
  • Herta +125

Herta has placed outside of the top 20 the same number of times as he’s placed in the top 10 and averages a finishing position of 12.6 even with a win this season. Also, he’s struggled heavily in the practice runs while Dixon has been thriving.

Dixon has finished third or better in two of the last three seasons in this event and is the reigning runner-up. Virtually all signs point towards Dixon having the better performance and is the odds-on favorite for a reason.

Winning Car Number Under 20.5 (-140)

The Under 20.5 seems to have enough value to be worth betting on. It’s the slight favorite on online sportsbooks due to the number of quality racers that fall into the category.

Not only does the Under have Scott Dixon but it also holds guys like Pat O’Ward (third favorite), Alex Palou (fourth favorite), Josef Newgarden (seventh favorite) and Graham Rahal (ninth favorite).

The Under has three of the top four favorites but also a good slate of mid-level contenders who could win the race.

  • Under 20.5 -140
