Those looking to bet on NASCAR this weekend are keying into a few different drivers.

Chase Elliot is known for his short-track prowess, but hasn’t shown the same speed in 2021 that led him to the Cup Championship last season. Last week at Homestead, Elliot led a few laps to start the race before dwindling in the final stretch, eventually finishing 14th.

The race was eventually won by William Byron, who dominated the track after winning the second stage. Few cars were as fast as the 24 last week, so it will be interesting to see what kind of kit the Hendrick Motorsports team rolls out in the Nevada heat.

As always, bettors would be remiss to ignore Denny Hamlin, who is available for one of his best prices of the short season at +1000. While Hamlin is more known for his superspeedway prowess, his seven wins last year on the Series show he can get it done literally anywhere.

All three races so far have produced underdog winners, with Michael McDowell, Christopher Bell, and William Byron all holding over +2000 odds pre-race.

Bettors will look to see if that trend continues this weekend in Sin City.
