Denny Hamlin is atop the leaderboard and is favored to win the 2022 Daytona 500. If Hamlin is the winner, it’ll be the fourth time he has done so at Daytona Motor Speedway and will place him in a two-way tie for second place all-time.
Despite the fact that Hamlin is favored to win, a NASCAR bet on his +850 moneyline odds will net $8.50 for each dollar wagered if he crosses the finish line first on Sunday.
The profit margins only go up exponentially for each additional driver listed below Hamlin and climb to 20-to-1 net payouts once venturing outside the top 10.
