Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 favorites
Martin Truex Jr. is installed as a +500 favorite, followed by fellow stars Chase Elliott and Brad Keselowski tied at +600.
Truex won the Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 last year, while Keselowski won this race in 2017 and 2019. Elliott, meanwhile, is the favorite to win the NASCAR Cup Series after he claimed the title last season.
Denny Hamlin and Logano are next up at +700. Hamlin has six Top-5 finishes in seven races this year (but has yet to win), while Logano was the winner of the Food City Dirt Race on March 29. The victory was the third time he placed in the Top 5 this season.
How to bet on NASCAR
The most popular way to bet on NASCAR is by simply picking the winner of a race, which is also referred to as an outright. There are plenty of other ways to wager, including betting on whether or not a driver will finish in the Top 3 or Top 10 of a race.
Another popular betting option is head-to-head matchup betting, where sportsbooks pair up two drivers and you choose who you think will finish better in the race, which is far easier than trying to select someone to win out of a field of approximately 40 drivers.
