Scott Dixon is sitting in a nice position for the Indy 500, both in the starting grid and the IndyCar odds. He possesses the coveted pole position for the 105th version of the event, and he’s an accomplished winner on the IndyCar circuit. If he does come home with the win, it’d be his second victory in the sport’s biggest race — 13 years apart.

Dixon has won four poles at the Indy 500, but only one race (2008), so that’s something to keep in mind. But the experience of the New Zealander, having won 50 races in the series and reaching more than 120 podiums in more than 300 career starts — it can’t be ignored. There’s a reason he tops the charts this weekend, in more ways than one.

Last year, Japanese native Takuma Sato (+1800) took the race title — his second win at the race in four seasons. He also shouldn’t be ignored.

Let’s take a look at what could happen this weekend:
