DraftKings is offering IndyCar fans the ability to boost any driver’s odds to win Sunday afternoon’s Indy 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The 107th running of the Indy 500 is scheduled to take place on Sunday afternoon at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and DraftKings is offering IndyCar fans a special boost to bet on who will be drinking the milk. Bettors can boost the odds of any driver to win Sunday’s race by +250.

Chip Ganassi Racing’s Alex Palou, who took the pole position for the 200-lap race around the four-turn, 2.5-mile (4.023-kilometer) Speedway, Indiana oval with a record four-lap average speed of 234.217 miles per hour behind the wheel of his No. 10 Honda, is the betting favorite to win the sixth race of the 2023 IndyCar season.

The current points leader’s odds are +450, and you can boost them to +700 by taking advantage of this offer. Palou, who dominated the GMR Grand Prix at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course two weekends ago, led laps in the Indy 500 in both 2021 and 2022, placing second two years ago and ninth last year after an untimely caution hurt his chances of a much better finish.

A full Indy 500 starting lineup is available here.

Here is the full list of odds for each of the 33 drivers set to compete in Sunday’s race, according to DraftKings Sportsbook, plus the odds you can get if you use the +250 boost.
