Larson Favored in NASCAR Odds

All eyes will be on Larson this weekend as he attempts to become only the fifth driver in history to complete the “double” – racing in both the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 on the same day. Larson qualified an impressive fifth for his first Indy 500 and will be hoping the weather cooperates to allow him to make the journey to Charlotte in time.

NASCAR has said they will try to accommodate Larson’s travel as best as possible, but there are concerns about how quickly he can get to Charlotte and still perform at a high level in both races. Larson’s +600 price implies just

Close on Larson’s heels in the odds are Denny Hamlin (+575) and Tyler Reddick (+850). Hamlin has an outstanding record at Charlotte with 18 top-10 finishes in his last 22 starts, including a win in 2022. Reddick has also shown speed on 1.5-mile tracks this year.

Other drivers to watch include Ryan Blaney (+900), the defending Coca-Cola 600 champion, along with Martin Truex Jr. (+1000) and William Byron (+1100). Truex is a three-time winner of this event while Byron will be eager to claim his first crown jewel win at his home track.

Racers to Avoid in NASCAR Odds

While Hendrick Motorsports has a storied history of success at Charlotte, there are reasons to be cautious. Chase Elliott (+1100) is still trying to regain his form after serving a suspension, while there are lingering questions about whether Larson will even make the start.

Byron (+950) could be the best of the Hendrick bunch but has struggled for consistency in recent weeks.

In terms of other drivers to potentially avoid, Ross Chastain (+1750) has a less-than-stellar record at Charlotte with a best finish of 15th. Christopher Bell (+1300) has also been hit-or-miss on 1.5-mile tracks this year.

NACAR Coca-Cola 600 Predictions & Picks

In terms of best bets, Alex Bowman at +135 for a top-10 finish looks enticing. Bowman has been remarkably consistent at Charlotte, finishing 12th or better in six of the last eight races. Veterans like Brad Keselowski (+1200) and Joey Logano (+2000) are also worth a look, given their ability to manage a 600-mile race.

For those seeking a bigger payout, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. at +500 for a top-10 could be the way to go. Stenhouse has quietly been one of the most consistent drivers at Charlotte in the Next Gen car era, with an average finish of 7th – third best in the field. He’ll also be fired up after his post-race altercation with Kyle Busch last week.

Speaking of Busch, he’s an intriguing pick at +1750 to win. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver has the best average finish (3.7) over the last three Coca-Cola 600s and tends to perform well when driving with a chip on his shoulder. A head-to-head matchup between Busch and Christopher Bell (-110) also favors the more experienced Busch on this type of track.

NASCAR Coca-Cola 600 Predictions:

  • Alex Bowman Top-10 Finish (+135)
  • Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Top-10 Finish (+500)

NASCAR 600 Longshots Bets

In terms of NASCAR 600 longshots, Austin Dillon at +600 for a top-10 is very appealing. The driver of the iconic #3 has three top-10s in the last four Coke 600s, with Charlotte ranking as one of his best statistical tracks. At 6-1, Dillon is a fantastic longshot bet to crack the top 10.

For an even bigger bomb, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. at +15000 to win is worth a look. As mentioned, Stenhouse has been stellar at Charlotte in the Next Gen car, and he’ll be supremely motivated after last week’s controversy. If he keeps his nose clean, Stenhouse could absolutely pull off the upset at juicy 15-1 odds.

Two other live longshots are Erik Jones (+10000) and Bubba Wallace (+3000). Jones was fourth in this race last year and has flashed speed in 2024. Wallace has a great record at Charlotte, finishing top-5 in two of the last three Coke 600s. Both Jones and Wallace have the talent to far outrun their odds.

NASCAR Coca-Cola 600 Longshot Picks:

  • Austin Dillon Top-10 Finish (+600)
  • Ricky Stenhouse Jr. to Win (+15000)
