Helio Castroneves became a member of a prestigious club last year, joining legends A.J. Foyt, Rick Mears, and Al Unser as the only drivers to win the Indianapolis 500 four times. The 47-year-old Brazilian attempts to move into a league of his own when he competes in the 2022 Indianapolis 500 on Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Castroneves is listed at 25-1 in the latest Indianapolis 500 odds from Caesars Sportsbook while 2008 winner Scott Dixon is the 4-1 favorite. The green flag drops at 12:45 p.m. ET.
Before making any 2022 Indy 500 picks, you NEED to see what SportsLine's Micah Roberts has to say. A former Vegas bookmaker, Roberts was the first to offer expanded auto racing betting and now hands out winners to his followers on SportsLine.
In 2016, rookie Alexander Rossi shocked the world, winning the Indy 500 as an 80-1 long shot. Roberts, the nation's premier auto racing betting expert, was all over Rossi.
The following year, sportsbooks listed Takuma Sato as a 25-1 long shot, but Roberts liked his speed during practice runs and listed him in the top 10 of his projected leaderboard. The result: Sato stunned the IndyCar world with his first win since 2013, and anybody who backed him saw a massive return.
Roberts also had 2018 winner Will Power, who was listed at 10-1, in his top 10 and correctly predicted Simon Pagenaud to win the Indianapolis 500 a year later. Spot-on picks are the norm from Roberts, who is locked in on this year's running of the Indianapolis 500 and just revealed his projected leaderboard.
We can tell you he has Jimmie Johnson, one of the greatest drivers in NASCAR history who is listed at 16-1, in his projected top five. "He's got Ganassi speed and showed off with top-five speeds in five of the practice sessions," Roberts told SportsLine. "(He) knows the track well, has a chip on his shoulder and, once again, he has speed."
Roberts also has identified a long-shot driver with a real chance of taking the checkered flag. Vegas isn't particularly on this driver, so you could cash in HUGE on Sunday. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before entering your picks!
