Phoenix Raceway NASCAR Odds: Shriners Children’s 500

Larson is widely regarded as the frontrunner in the Shriners Children’s 500 at Phoenix Raceway. According to DraftKings, he is the favorite with odds of +600, just ahead of defending series champion Ryan Blaney at +700 and Larson’s Hendrick teammate William Byron, who won the Daytona 500, at +750.

Arizona sports betting app users should keep an eye on Joey Logano (+1400) and Kyle Busch (+1200), both three-time winners in Phoenix, for potentially valuable bets this weekend. Denny Hamlin (+900), who claimed the pole position for Sunday’s race, is also worth considering.

Blaney and Logano Lead the Pack Among Active Drivers in Recent NASCAR Phoenix Races, Dating Back to February 2021

Blaney has consistently been the best driver at Phoenix’s NASCAR Cup Series in recent races, with an average fourth place finish in six races at the one-mile oval since 2021.

Kevin Harvick clinched his series title with a second-place finish in Phoenix last November. Despite being a nine-time Phoenix winner and ranking second in best average finish in the past six Cup races, Harvick has retired from active competition since 2021. Arizona sports bettors can take advantage of various wagering options for the race, including prop bets offered at select sites.
