BetMGM’s Liability On Indy 500 Bets
Per BetMGM’s John Ewing, Jimmie Johnson — one of the most prestigious NASCAR racers of all-time — boasts the highest ticket count (7.6%) and the third-highest overall handle (7.0%), respectively, as of Thursday morning. He’ll be in the No. 12 position in Sunday’s Indy 500, and it’ll mark his first-ever, open-wheel race on a circle track.
“I really believe all tracks have their own rhythm to them,” Johnson said in an interview with IndyCar.com. “Ovals are a little easier to find in some respects, maybe come quicker just because the lap is shorter. It’s easier to pick up the rhythm of a track with four corners versus one with 17 or something like that. There is a rhythm to Texas. It is much different than what I have felt in the Cup car. But where it is similar is just how aggressive you can be in Turns 3 and 4, then really how cautious you need to be Turn 1, kind of getting the car pointed and heading off the back straightaway for Turn 2. It’s a lap where you start tiptoeing, making sure you really hit your marks, to then really moving down the back straightaway and throwing all the aggression you can at Turns 3 and 4.”
Scott Dixon, who’s the favorite (+500) to win the race, showcases the highest overall handle (8.7%) and the second-highest ticket percentage (6.6%).
