NASCAR Cup Series Championship pre-race favorites

Chase Elliott (+200)

Elliott's been the most prolific driver on the circuit this season by many standards, and has sat atop the Cup Series odds for much of 2022.

His five wins lead NASCAR on the campaign (he's the only driver with more than three), and the 2020 champ was also part of last year's Championship 4 — consistently putting himself in contention.

Elliott's 2020 victory in this race marks his lone Phoenix win, but his pedigree might be the best of any driver left. 

Christopher Bell (+260)

Bell's riding some very good momentum, winning two of the past four races — including last weekend's Xfinity 500 — after finishing Top 5 in each of the first three playoff races.

He's arguably been NASCAR's most consistent contender on a week-to-week basis over the season's second half, with Top 5 finishes in eight of the past 16 races overall.

He lacks the experience at this juncture that some of the other drivers have, but certainly isn't shying away from the moment.

Ross Chastain (+330)

Chastain's campaign has been a bit of a sandwich, starting off absolutely on fire (four Top 3s, including a win in the first six races), before a very rough stretch in the summer (sevens straight finishes of 18th or worse) gave way to a very consistent home stretch (six Top-7 finishes in last eight races, with last three in the Top 4).

He appears to be back near early-season form and finished runner-up in Phoenix's spring race.

Joey Logano (+330)

The other Championship 4 driver with a previous Cup Series title on his resume, Logano had been the points leader for several weeks before the tallies were leveled for the final race.

His playoff results have been a serious mixed bag, with a win and a runner-up scattered among some disappointing 18th and 27th-place results.

Logano also won here in the spring of 2020, was runner-up in the first 2021 race, and finished ninth here earlier this year, so his track record is favorable.

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.
