NASCAR Cup Series Odds: Larson Remains Atop Board, Elliott Closing In

Chase Elliot sealed his first win of the season at Dover International Speedway two weekends ago, improving his odds from +650 to +550, but it's Kyle Larson who remains the man to beat on his pursuit for another NASCAR Cup Series title.

After yesterday's NASCAR All-Star Race, the odds board remained relatively the exact same as no points were on the line for Sunday's race, but Ryan Blaney would most definitely be happy with the $1 million cheque he secured — along with bragging rights. Kyle Larson still remains atop the board at +400 with Chase Elliott right on his tails at +550.

NASCAR Cup Series favorites

Kyle Larson (+400)

The leader of the NASCAR Cup Series odds board is none other than 2021 champion Kyle Larson, available at +400. 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 10 wins and 20 Top-5 finishes.

This season has seen a ton of inconsistencies from Larson up to this point, as he hasn't had much of a dominant stretch yet. He has a win and six Top-5 finishes so far, including a second-place finish at the Kansas Speedway over the weekend. He'll have his eyes fully set on the prize next weekend in North Carolina.

Chase Elliot (+550)

Second on the board is Larson's Chevy teammate Chase Elliot, now available at +550. He won the Cup Series in 2020 and is coming off his first win of the season at Dover two weekends ago, further building upon his lead atop the Cup Series standings. He followed that up with yet another Top-5 finish last weekend, but stumbled on Sunday, finishing 29th.

If he can continue to maintain his lead — specifically over Larson — Elliot may soon become the solo betting favorite. 

William Byron (+700)

William Byron picked up another amazing win last month, finishing first at the Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 400. That marked Byron's second win on the season and his third Top-5 finish. He followed that up with finishes of 18th at Briston, 15th in Talladega, 22nd at Dover, ninth at Darlington, and 16th in Kansas City. He remains fourth in the Cup Series standings. 

Ross Chastain, Kyle Busch (+800)

Ross Chastain moved all the way up to +800 with a massive win in Talladega a month ago. He's got two victories on the season paired with five other Top-5 finishes. He's now fifth in the standings and should be someone to keep an eye on as the season progresses.

Rounding out the Top 5 is none other than Kyle Busch. The 36-year-old has had himself quite the season and picked up a victory in Tennessee last month, marking his first win of the season. Busch put struggled at Darlington, finishing 33rd and collecting only 11 points, but had an amazing rebound over the weekend, finishing in third place in Kansas and collecting 53 points. Kyle now sits in third place in the Cup Series standings.
