Sunday will be a big day for race fans as the 2024 Indianapolis 500 gets underway. The biggest IndyCar race of the year takes place on the same day as NASCAR's Coca-Cola 600, and Kyle Larson was planning to fly to the second race after competing in the 2024 Indy 500 field. However, Larson will not make it in time for the start of the Coca-Cola 600 after strong rain showers delayed the 2024 Indy 500 start time to 4:44 p.m. ET. Larson is listed at +650 on the 2024 Indianapolis 500 odds board.

Defending Indy 500 champion Josef Newgarden is listed at +500 in the latest 2024 Indy 500 odds, while Scott McLaughlin won the pole position and is the +450 favorite. Before making any 2024 Indianapolis 500 picks or predictions, you need to see what elite expert auto racing handicappers Phil Bobbitt and Steve Greco have to say.

Bobbitt and Greco built a predictive engine that consistently beats the books. They find huge value and aren't afraid of volume. Over the past three years, their followers are up more than $26,100 on $100 plays. Last season, they called +4000 longshot Michael McDowell winning the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard and Ryan Blaney to win the NASCAR Cup Series Championship at +3000. 

The duo began 2024 by calling Hamlin to win the Clash at the Coliseum at +1100 and hit on three of its four top-five wagers. Three weeks later at Atlanta, they predicted Daniel Suarez's victory at +3500 and were 10-2 on matchup plays. They went 9-3 on head-to-head plays in the Toyota Owners 400 in March, going +13.58 units in that article alone, while their 2024 NASCAR All-Star Race preview nailed Joey Logano at +1100 and went 4-0 in matchup picks. Anyone following Bobbitt and Greco has seen huge returns.

Now, Bobbitt and Greco have analyzed the field and odds for Sunday's 2024 Indy 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. They're sharing their best bets only at SportsLine.

2024 Indy 500 expert picks

One of Bobbitt and Greco's top Indy 500 bets: They are backing Colton Herta to finish in the top five for a +165 payout. The Andretti Global driver has not finished better than eighth in his career at the Indy 500, but his current form and previous success at the Brickyard make him a candidate to break that trend and finish this race strong.

Herta won the 2022 GMR Grand Prix at Indianapolis Motor Speedway at 22 years old, becoming the youngest driver to win an event there. He ranks fourth in the IndyCar Series standings and has four top-10 finishes, which is the most of any IndyCar Series driver this season. See what other Indy 500 picks they like at SportsLine.
