Iowa Corn 300 Picks
The IndyCar Series holds the Iowa Corn 300 later today. Here are some picks we like for this race.
The Iowa Corn 300 is a 262-mile race that is held at Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa. The race takes place today at 5:40PM ET and will air on the NBC Sports Network. According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Helio Castroneves is a 5/1 favorite to win this race while Scott Dixon, Simon Pagenaud, Tony Kanaan and Will Power each have 6/1 odds.
Will Power is third in the point standings and has two wins to his credit this year. The wins are in the last two races of the season. We think he will continue to build off of that today to get another victory.
Ryan Hunter-Reay has 8/1 odds to win this race. We like those odds given he is a three-time champion of the race and two-time defending champion. He doesn’t have a win this year, but we think returning to this track should do a lot for him.
Ed Carpenter is returning to the IndyCar series today for a rare appearance. He has 15/1 odds to win this race. He has been a regular in this race, finishing sixth a year ago and fifth in 2015. Carpenter has a lot of experience and success in these types of tracks, so we think he is a good dark horse to win today.
