NASCAR Cup Series Odds: Elliot Leads, Hamlin Pulls Closer

Chris Buescher picked up his first win of the season at Bristol Motor Speedway over the weekend, but a runner-up finish for Chase Elliot has him again leading  the Cup Series standings and solidifying his spot atop the odds board. 

Elliot (+275) and his four wins still have the advantage over Denny Hamlin, with defending champion Kyle Larson rounding out the Top 3.

NASCAR Cup Series favorites

Chase Elliott (+275)

Elliott won the Cup Series in 2020 and is back in the driver's seat for the 2022 title odds after having led the points standings for nearly three months (currently first, 15 points ahead of Logano).

With his HMS teammate Kyle Larson struggling to match his 2021 form, Elliott has four victories on the season among a slew of Top-10 finishes, with his most recent win coming at Pocono over a month ago.

He finished second at Bristol Motor Speedway over the weekend, his 11th finish inside the Top 5 this season.

Denny Hamlin (+425)

Replacing Kyle Larson in the No. 2 spot is Denny Hamlin.

The three-time Daytona 500 winner has two victories this year and seven Top-5 finishes among 10 Top 10s after finishing ninth in Saturday's race. He currently sits sixth in the Cup Series standings.

Kyle Larson (+650)

Larson proved dominant in last year's playoff stretch, winning five of eight races, including the Cup Series Championship race at Phoenix Raceway, where he secured pole and closed the deal on his first Cup Series title in a year he totaled nine wins and 20 Top-5 finishes.

This season hasn't been Larson's up to this point, but maybe his win a month ago could spark a late-season push. He has two wins and 11 Top-5 finishes so far, currently sitting fourth in the season standings, but still finds himself with some work to do as Elliot and Hamlin pull away on the odds board.
