After Denny Hamlin won his next career Daytona 500, NASCAR will make its way up north to Atlanta Motor Speedway for races in all three series. Hamlin is listed at 15-to-1 to get Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race despite winning The Great American Race at 10-to-1.
Kevin Harvick, last year’s winner, is the Vegas favored at 4-to-1. Kyle Busch, the 2013 winner, comes in behind him 6-to-1 alongside Joey Logano, that hasn’t won a Cup Series race in Atlanta. While his Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jimmie Johnson — a five-time winner in Atlanta — has 25-to-1 chances to 25, hometown kid Chase Elliott is 10-to-1.
Vegas is banking on Michael McDowell and Ty Dillon to lose the race despite the two finishing in the top six. Dillon and McDowell are recorded for Sunday’s race at 500-to-1, meaning a $100 bet would make $50,000.
Aric Almirola will start on the pole at odds. Behind him will be Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who has value at 100-to-1.
