Elliott and Truex are the major favorites to win this race, with Truex having +350 odds, while Ryan Blaney, the next closest driver, has +725 odds.

Other big names can be found lower on the odds boards, such as Joey Logano at +1800 and Brad Keselowski at +2000.

Logano and Keselowski reportedly have not spoken to each other after a crash took them both out of contention for the Daytona 500.

It was a crash that saw them fall from finishing first and second, however - they performed very well on this track during the long race.

Given that they had nearly locked up first and second place, one wonders if they can replicate that performance over the course of this race, which is half as long as the 500.

Finally, eagle eyed NASCAR betting fans might have noticed that both Elliott and Truex Jr. have odd numbered cars.

Winning Car Number Odds

  • Odd -150
  • Even +115

There is potentially money to be made in this wager, as beyond Elliott and Truex Jr., bettors who wager on Odd have Denny Hamlin to boost their chances as well.

Even bettors are helmed by Ryan Blaney and Kyle Busch, and pick up both Keselowski and Logano as well.
