According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Marco Andretti is still the favorite to win today, as he has 13/2 odds. Other short odds to win are Scott Dixon (8/1), Dario Franchitti (17/2) and Helio Castroneves (17/2).

Andretti qualified third for Sunday’s race. He is part of the legendary Andretti racing family, but he hasn’t had the best success in this race, placing outside the top 5 in four of the last six years, including a 24th-place finish last year. His top finish was second in his 2006 debut. Andretti is currently second in the IRL standings, 13 points out of first. He is winless on the year but has two top-5 finishes.

Dixon has competed in the Indianapolis 500 10 times in his career and he has some impressive numbers, winning the race in 2008 while placing in the top 5 four other times and in the top 10 three additional times. He finished second in last year’s race and in 2007. Dixon will start 16th on Sunday, which is his worst starting position, but he finished second last year after starting 15th, his previous worst starting position.

Franchitti has competed in the Indy 500 nine times in his career, and he has won the race three times. Franchitti claimed the checkered flag in 2007, 2010 and last year. Along with his wins, Franchitti has also placed in the top 7 three other times. His worst finish was 19th in his 2002 debut. Franchitti will start 17th on Sunday. He also started 17th in 2006 and finished seventh.

Castroneves has competed in the Indy 500 12 times in his career, earning the victory three times. Castroneves was the winner in 2001, 2002 and 2009. He also has finished second in 2003 and has six other top-10 finishes. Castroneves has been on the Indy 500 pole four times in his career. This year he will start eighth. He started eighth in 2004 and finished in ninth place.
