Indianapolis 500 Expert Picks – Dario Franchitti Deserves to be Frontrunner

2011 Indianapolis 500 Expert Picks – Dario Franchitti Deserves to be Frontrunner: Sunday will mark the 100-year anniversary of the Indianapolis 500, and Dario Franchitti holds the honor of being the favorite to take the checkered flag. At 4/1 odds, the payoff for bettors isn’t enormous, but considering his recent numbers at Indianapolis and overall, the smart money may still lie with Franchitti. After all, there is no questioning his current status as the top driver in the series.

In each of his last three seasons in IndyCar Series, Franchitti has claimed the title. During his three title campaigns, he has posted 12 victories and has posted an average finish of 4.8 or better. Franchitti made 51 starts in those three seasons, notching an incredible 39 top-five finishes and 46 top-10s. In other words, winning and running up front has become second nature for him.

At Indianapolis, it has been a similar story. He has a 7.9 average finish in seven starts at the track, along with five top-10 finishes. More importantly, Franchitti has hoisted the Borg-Warner Trophy, including last season when he dominated the Indy 500. He has led 255 laps at the track in his career, which ranks as his second-most at any track. At larger oval tracks overall, Franchitti has collected nine of his 17 career wins.

If his momentum from last year’s victory wasn’t enough, Franchitti’s hot start to the 2011 season has him eying a second straight Indy win and a fourth straight series crown. In addition to his victory in the season opener, he has finished in the top five in all four events thus far. Not to mention the fact that all four of those races were held on road courses, meaning Franchitti will return to his bread and butter this weekend with an oval track like Indianapolis.

For bettors, the most important thing in the long run is making money. While it would be nice to hit it big with a longshot pick, the fact is that sometimes the heavy favorite deserves to be the favorite. This doesn’t mean you that can’t put some money on a sleeper option or two on this year’s Indy 500 Odds, but it is recommended that you put some money on Franchitti as a safety valve. He is the best driver out there right now, and he has been plenty strong at Indianapolis lately. Franchitti is one frontrunner that can’t be ignored.

2011 Indianapolis 500 Odds and Predictions – Indy 500 Favorites and Picks to Win

2011 Indianapolis 500 Vegas Odds, Free Picks and Predictions – Favorites and Drivers to Bet On at Indy 500:The Indianapolis 500 is one of the most historic events in motorsports, and this season will mark the 100th anniversary of the inaugural event. The biggest names in auto racing have participated in the Indy 500, and every open-wheel driver aspires to be the next face added to the Borg Warner trophy and drink the milk in Victory Lane.

Last season, Dario Franchitti got to enjoy both traditions for the second time in his career. The Chip Ganassi Racing driver dominated the race, leading more than 150 laps, and he had just enough fuel to hold off Dan Wheldon in the closing laps. Helio Castroneves was the other major contender, but a mistake in the pits cost him a shot at the win.

The Favorites

Defending Indy 500 winner Dario Franchitti looks poised to make a run at back-to-back victories in the prestigious race. He also won the event in 2007, and he has finished seventh or better in his last five starts at Indianapolis. Not to mention the fact that Franchitti has finished fourth or better in all four races in 2011.

He hasn’t been running that well in 2011, but oval tracks like Indianapolis always seems to bring out the best in Scott Dixon. He won the race in 2008, and he has finished sixth or better in five straight starts at the track. Dixon nearly won the pole for Sunday’s race, and history says he will be at or near the front of the field in the closing laps.

The Dark Horses

It has been a surprisingly quiet year for Helio Castroneves, but he a trip to Indianapolis could be just what the doctor ordered. He won his first two starts in the Indy 500 in 2001 and 2002, and he went on to add a third win in 2009. In 10 career starts at the track, Castroneves has finished in the top 10 on nine occasions.

Just like he did in 2010, Will Power has built up a nice point lead thanks to his road course dominance. However, his lackluster performance on oval tracks last season eventually cost him the title. That being said, Power did finish eighth in his Indy 500 debut last season, and another year of full-time experience in the series can only help his chances.

Sleepers Specials

In each of the last two seasons, Ryan Briscoe has had a car capable of winning the Indianapolis 500. Unfortunately, personal mistakes allowed potential wins to slip away. Despite Briscoe’s failures on the big stage, the fact remains is that he is one of the few drivers that has consistently been in the mix two win at Indy. Plus, he sits fifth in the standings and enters the race coming off back-to-back top-three finishes.

After pulling off a huge upset to win the pole for the Indy 500, Alex Tagliani will try to continue his Cinderella story. He doesn’t have a history of success in the event, but that didn’t stop him from grabbing the pole. Tagliani is a wildcard for sure, but at least he has proven his car is fast.

Big Names to Avoid

Teammates Danica Patrick and Marco Andretti have had a very interesting time at Indianapolis thus far. Both drivers nearly missed qualifying for the race, and there isn’t an explanation as to why the speed for Patrick and Andretti is so far off the pace. While both have had a history of success in the race, including a near win for Andretti, the organization’s struggles thus far are a red flag.
