Briscoe and Castroneves come into the race at 4/1 odds to win according to the online sports book SPORTSBETTING. Points leader Dario Franchitti (9/2) and Will Power (5/1) are also among the short odds to win Sunday’s race.

Briscoe is third in the IRL standings, trailing Franchitti by 13 points. In 10 races, Briscoe has finished in the top 5 in seven of them. Briscoe has one win on the season, which came in the series opener in St. Petersburg (another road course). Briscoe has finished second in three of the last four IRL events.

Castroneves stands in fourth place in the IRL standings, 78 points behind the leader. The 2009 Indy 500 winner has two wins on the season, but has been slumping as of late. In his last four races, Castroneves has one top 5 finish, and finished 17th or worse in two of those events.

Franchitti leads the IRL standings by a slim two-point margin over Scott Dixon. Franchitti has won three events in 2009, including two road courses. Franchitti won the last IRL event, the Hondy Indy Toronto on the streets of Toronto. Franchitti has finished in the top 5 in five of his last six races, which includes two wins.

Will Power is considered a road-course expert, as he has raced in just four IRL events this season, three of which were road courses. In those three events, Power has not finished worse than sixth and was runner-up at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach.

The Rexall Edmonton Indy will take place Sunday, July 26 from Rexall Speedway at 5 p.m. ET. For complete odds and track information on this year’s event, see below.
