It looks like something of a two-horse race so to speak regarding just which drivers have the very best chances of being crowned the champion driver in the 2019 IndyCar Series, for looking at the early betting markets there are just two drivers that are being backed by punters.
Keep in mind though that anything can and often does happen in IndyCar racing, and as such you may fancy backing any of the drivers to win the title race, and if you do manage to pick one of the outsiders and they go on to win then by having bet on them right now the rewards should be huge.
Before I do take a look at some of the outsiders that may just go on to win the title, let me give you some ideas as to just which drivers have a much better chance of doing so, those being both the first and second favourites.
It is Josef Newgarden who is only just leading the 2019 IndyCar Series Driver Championship betting markets right now, and his odds are respected at 6/4, given his very obvious chances of winning the title, and then you have Scott Dixon who is on offer to win the title at ever so slightly higher odds of 13/8.
Alexander Rossi Has the Skill to Win
As soon as you do try making sense of the betting markets on this event, you are going to spot just a handful of drivers that are likely to win the title race, admittedly with those two listed up above being the ones that most punters will fancy.
However, it could be the case that this year the talented Alexander Rossi may just show all other drivers a clean pair of heels so to speak and he has to be a standout bet right now being as he is being offered at odds as high as 4/1 at some bookies sites!
You Can Forget the Rest!
There is no doubt what so ever in my mind that it is going to be one of the three drivers that I have listed up above that will win the drivers title race this year, and as such you should avoid backing any of the other drivers, for there is very little chance any of them will win.
The odds do give you an idea as to the chances of each other drive which for reference are 12/1 on both Simon Pagenaud and Will Power, 14/1 on Takuma Sato and you can get odds as high as 25/1 on the likes of Graham Rahal, James Hinchcliffe and Ryan Hunter-reay too.
The other drivers are being touted at silly odds just to attract some punters to back them, and those drivers and their respective odds are Sebastian Bourdais at 33/1, Colton Herta and Felix Rosenqvist at 50/1, Marco Andretti who odds are currently huge at 66/1 and then you have Ed Jones at 150/1, Marcus Ericsson at 200/1 and Zach Veach at 250/1.
