People who love auto racing are always looking forward to Memorial Day weekend, which presents the opportunity to see some of the most prestigious races the major racing organizations have to offer. BetOnline does as good a job of covering all this as any sportsbook in the world.

Let's talk about three races taking place on the same day - the Grand Prix of Monaco, the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600.

Here are the odds for the top contenders at the Grand Prix of Monaco:

Max Verstappen +120
Sergio Perez +350
Charles Leclerc +450
Fernando Alonso +550
Carlos Sainz +2500
George Russell +2800
Lewis Hamilton +3300
Lance Stroll +10000
Esteban Ocon +25000
Pierre Gasly +25000

Formula One is largely a game of the "haves" and the "have-nots." All the teams have money, but some of the teams have mega-money. The "haves" right now include the four top team in the Constructors standings - Red Bull, Aston Martin, Mercedes and Ferrari. Those are the only four teams that have been able to reach a podium (top three finishers). Red Bull has won all five races thus far in the 2023 season. They've got the dynamic duo of Max Verstappen (three wins) and Sergio Perez (two wins). They are in a duel for the drivers' title, with Verstappen (+120), the son of an F-1 drtiver who won the crown in 2021 and 2022, ahead 119-105.

Aston Martin's Fernando Alonso (+550) is in third place in the drivers' standings, and this represents a comeback of sorts for the two-time world champion. Lewis Hamilton, who has won three world titles, is having a tough year, hitting the podium just once in five races for Mercedes. Charles LeClerc, a Ferrari driver, was born and raised in Monaco (Monte Carlo). He's currently in seventh place in the drivers' standings.

Odds to Win IndyCar Indianapolis 500

Alex Palou +600
Pato O'Ward +800
Scott Dixon +800
Alexander Rossi +1000
Rinus Veekay +1000
Marcus Ericsson +1100
Felix Rosenqvist +1200
Santino Ferrucci +1200
Takuma Sato +1200
Josef Newgarden +1450
Scott McLaughlin +1600
Will Power +1600
Colton Herta +2000
Tony Kanaan +2000

Alex Palou (+600) is first in the IndyCar standings, and he is sitting on the pole at the Indianapolis 500. In fact, his average speed for the four laps (204.217 mph) is the fastest ever for a pole winner. Palou is coming off a win at the GMR Grand Prix, which was held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. He drives for Chip Ganassi Racing, which also had last year's winner, Marcus Ericsson, who is listed at +1100 at BetOnline.

Josef Newgarden (+1450) is the driver who has led the most laps at this early stage of the season, with 155. And 122 of those laps were at the PPG 375, where he won. Helio Castroneves is one of nine former winners of this race who are slated to start, and he is the only four-time winner, but he is priced at +4000.

Rinus Veekay (+1000) was the second highest qualifier behind (actually well behind) Palou, and he would like to make up for last year's unpleasantness, where he had to leave the race after a very early accident. Tony Kanaan (+2000) is the oldest driver in the race at 48; he finished third last year.

Stefan Wilson crashed during practice, suffering a fractured vertebrae, and he is out of the race. Graham Rahal replaced him, but then he got bumped from the field by teammate Jack Harvey.

Odds to Win Nascar Coca-Cola 600

Kyle Larson +400
William Byron +600
Denny Hamlin +700
Martin Truex Jr +850
Chase Elliott +900
Ross Chastain +1000
Christopher Bell +1250
Kyle Busch +1250
Joey Logano +1600
Tyler Reddick +1600
Alex Bowman +1800
Kevin Harvick +1800
Ryan Blaney +1800
Bubba Wallace +2200

Kyle Larson is going to attempt "Double Duty" next year,.which means that he will try to race the Indy 500 and then take the flight to Charlotte and compete in the Coca-Cola 600. Of the drivers who have given this a whirl, only Tony Stewart has been able to complete both races in the same day. For now, in solo duty, Larson, who won here in 2021, is the favorite at +400.

William Byron is the second favorite, and he is the only three-time winner in the Cup Series thus far. He races for Hendrick Motorsports, which has won the Coca-Cola 600 twelve times. Ross Chastain, who drives for the upstart Trackhouse Racing, which is co-owned by rapper Pitbull, has no wins, but he does lead the NASCAR points standings at the moment. He's priced at +1000. Defending champion Denny Hamlin is posted at +700. His victory came in the longest race in this event's history, as overtime sessions forced it to go 619.5 miles.

Jimmie Johnson, a seven-time Cup champion and four-time winner of the Coca-Cola 600, is running part-time in NASCAR this year after competing in the IndyCar Series the last two years. He has been the Indy 500 Rookie of the Year. He also qualified at the Daytona 500 this year and came 31st after a crash. How serious is he? Not very, according to the public, apparently, as he is a 150-1 longshot here.
