Favorite to win the South Point 400
After winning last weekend at Bristol, NASCAR points leader Kyle Larson is the betting favorite again this weekend at +350. Larson, who is also the favorite to win the Cup Series Championship, has six Top-6 finishes in his last seven events — and he won at Las Vegas earlier this season.
Kyle Busch is the second favorite at +600, despite only posting one Top-20 result in his last four events. Busch does have history on his side this weekend, however, as he placed third at Las Vegas in March and has finished in the Top 7 in five of his last seven races at this track.
The red-hot Denny Hamlin (+700) is third on the betting board, posting results of first, second, and ninth through three playoff races. Hamlin has also finished third and fourth in his last two events at Las Vegas.
Chase Elliott, who has five Top-8 results in his last seven races — albeit two of his three playoff races have been duds — is fourth at +800, while the Top 5 is rounded out by the 2019 South Point 400 winner, Martin Truex Jr., at +900.
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.
