  • [May 9]: Chase Elliot’s average NASCAR Cup odds have dropped back down to +575 following his win at Dover and a fifth-place finish at the Goodyear 400.  He’s now 65 points clear of William Byron and Ryan Blaney in the current series standings.
  • [Apr 25]: After picking up two Top-Three finished in a row, including a win in the dirt race at Bristol, Kyle Busch’s cup odds have dropped back down to +800.
  • [Apr 11]: Despite notching his second win of the season, the needle barely moved on Byron’s Cup odds, going from +800 to +700. Meanwhile, Kyle Larson, who currently sits in 13th in the Series standings, is now getting +350 to win the Cup.
  • [Mar 28]: After notching a third, two seconds, and a first-place finish in his last four races, Ross Chastain’s NASCAR Cup odds have jumped from +15000 in late February to as short as +1000 at some books.
  • [Mar 23]: Early in the NASCAR season we’ve seen some big underdogs pull of wins. Chase Briscoe was victorious in Arizona, while William Byron won last week at the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500. Bryon’s odds stayed put as Kyle Larson remains favored to win.
  • [Mar 7]: Alex Bowman is the most recent winner, pulling through at the Pennzoil 400. However, Kyle Larson is still a pretty big favorite after winning the Wise Power 400 at the end of February.
  • [Feb 22]: Austin Cindric won the Daytona 500, moving his NASCAR Cup odds to +1800. Larson remains a big favorite to win the NASCAR Cup.
  • [Dec 16]: Kyle Larson has opened as the favorite to win the 2022 NASCAR Cup. Denny Hamlin and Chase Elliott are the second betting favorites at +700.
