Go Bowling at The Glen pre-race favorites
Chase Elliott (+500)
As this is another road course on the NASCAR schedule, it's no surprise at all to see Chase Elliott atop the leader board. Not only has Elliott been the most dominant driver on the circuit this year (four wins and a 116-point lead in the Cup Series standings), he's got the best track record on road courses with six wins in 16 races since 2019, finishing in the Top 10 at a 75% clip while leading more than twice as many laps as any other driver in that span. He won here in both 2018 and 2019.
Tyler Reddick (+600)
Reddick's NASCAR campaign has been hit-and-miss overall, but there's no debating that he's crushed road courses recently, winning at both Road America and the Brickyard last month. A runner-up at Pocono helps hide the blemish of his bottom-half finishes in four of the past seven races, but fading him on road tracks right now is tough.
Kyle Larson (+900)
Despite not winning a race since February, Kyle Larson is quietly putting up a decent title defense, sitting third in points, and rolling into this race with confidence as the defending champ. Larson's posted a trio of wins in his last 14 road races, with NASCAR's fifth-highest average finish among active drivers.
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.
