Sunday’s Daytona 500 Betting Odds Favor A Denny Hamlin Victory

drivers with the top NASCAR odds round the corner of the Daytona 500

MyBookie is all in with their odds for betting on the Daytona 500, supplying money lines for each driver participating in this Sunday’s NASCAR race.

Denny Hamlin is currently favored to cross the finish line first and capture the $2 million prize, and even though he is featured at the top, wagers on him will award bettors $8 for each $1 risked.

Picking the eventual winner of the Daytona 500 from the entire field of stock car racers is difficult, which is why online NASCAR sportsbooks place such high betting odds on each driver’s chances of victory.

For instance, Alex Bowman has earned the pole position and will start out in front this Sunday when the starting gun is fired, but his odds of winning the Daytona 500 are +1800, meaning that if he wins, bets made on him will cash in at 18x.

Of course, once the race begins, the below betting line will go live, with Daytona 500 odds updating as the race progresses. Live betting on NASCAR is particularly advantageous for gamblers who didn’t have time to place a pre-race wager, or for those that prefer narrower odds with more obvious choices.

In the past, our staff has seen NASCAR prop bets at the top online NASCAR betting sites that gather drivers in groups of two or more and place odds on which one among them will finish first.

These types of Daytona 500 betting lines offer more competitive odds that are more reasonably achievable, but also provide lower payouts.

For some reason, online books have neglected to provide proposition bets of this nature, and so far, only Daytona 500 futures odds are on the board.

NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace has a +2500 money line on his chances to win the Daytona 500 this Sunday, but recently, he was a player in the NFL’s 2021 Pro Bowl betting odds.

Because of COVID-19, the NFL decided to forgo a live Pro Bowl and feature a 4 vs. 4 competition using the All-Star rosters on Madden 21, the popular pro football video game.

Rusty Wallace was one of the four players competing for the NFC, and should have won the Pro Bowl MVP honors, but the league opted for Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray instead.

The 2021 Pro Bowl was technically an eSports competition, and auto racing is also one of the biggest draws in that realm.

Betting on NASCAR Heat is a major pastime at online books, and is the most popular stock car racing game on the planet. eSports, sims, and virtual sports betting help to fill the void during the offseason for those looking for racing odds.

Below are the current Daytona 500 odds for Sunday’s big race, so place your bets before they wave the checkered flag.
