IndyCar: Early picks for the 2022 IndyCar Champion

Top-6 Choices

We place early odds on who will be the 2022 IndyCar Champion.

Driver Odds Comments
Alex Palou 4:1 Alex Palou is a special talent to be able to beat Ganassi teammate Scott Dixon. The Spaniard won the title in only his second season and with the strong Ganassi outfit behind him, and more experience, we think he has an even better chance to win the title in 2022
Josef Newgarden 5:1 The Penske team was a bit down to the Honda teams in 2021, but look for Chevy to bring more power in 2022 and that may be all Newgarden needs to win his 3rd IndyCar title
Colton Herta 6:1 The best driver in the Andretti camp in 2021, Herta has the best chance to take the 2022 title, but the Andretti outfit is spread a bit thin with too many drivers, so it won’t be easy.
Romain Grosjean 8:1 Romain Grosjean showed he was very fast on the road courses in Dale Coyne machinery, and with the step-up to the Andretti team, we look for Grosjean to win more than once in 2022.  But is he good enough on the ovals yet? Time will tell.
Scott Dixon 9:1 It’s hard to ever count out Scott Dixon for the title, but Alex Palou showed last year that a young driver with faster reflexes could beat the aging Dixon. However, Dixon has a lot of experience, and he may find a way to pull another title out of the hat.
Pato O’Ward 10:1 Pato O’Ward got his first IndyCar win in 2022, and we expect both Chevy and the Arrow McLaren team to step-up their game in 2022, which could propel O’Ward to the title. If Chevy delivers and O’Ward’s performances more consistent, they could be a real threat for the title.
