After Denny Hamlin won his second career Daytona 500, NASCAR will make its way up north to Atlanta Motor Speedway for races in all three series one week. Despite winning The Great American Race at 10-to-1, Hamlin is listed at 15-to-1 to get Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race.
Last year’s winner, Kevin Harvick, is the Vegas favored at 4-to-1. Kyle Busch, the 2013 winner, comes in behind him at 6-to-1 along with Joey Logano, that has never won a Cup Series race at Atlanta. Hometown kid Chase Elliott is 10-to-1 while his Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jimmie Johnson — a five-time winner at Atlanta — has 25-to-1 odds to win.
Like a week, Vegas is banking on both the Ty Dillon and Michael McDowell to eliminate the race despite both in the top six. Dillon and McDowell are listed for Sunday’s race at 500-to-1, meaning a $100 bet would make $50,000.
Aric Almirola will start on the rod at odds. Behind him will be Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who has value at 100-to-1.
