Goodyear 400 Odds: Hamlin & Larson Share Shortest Odds

Denny Hamlin is the co-favorite to win in the Goodyear 400 odds.

NASCAR Cup Series drivers turn their focus to “the track too tough to tame” as they visit Darlington Raceway for the Goodyear 400. Kyle Busch became the 10th different winner in 11 races with his victory last week at Kansas, but Denny Hamlin and Kyle Larson share the shortest Goodyear 400 odds.

Online sportsbook Bovada has released Goodyear 400 odds for the Darlington spring race with Hamlin and Larson co-favored at +450. They are followed by Martin Truex Jr. at +700, Kevin Harvick at +700 and Kyle Busch at +800 to round out the top five drivers on the oddsboard.

Why are Hamlin & Larson the Favorites in Goodyear 400 Odds at Darlington?

Beginning with Hamlin, there were three runnings at “The Lady in Black” last year and the winner of the second of those races was Denny Hamlin, his third career win at this track. Furthermore, he has nine top-five finishes in his 17 starts at this track, for a 52.9 percent top-five finish rate. 

This season, the current points leader and co-favorite in the NASCAR Cup championship odds has eight top-five finishes in 11 races, has led the most laps and has scored the most stage wins. Hamlin will be the favorite a lot this year.

Is Larson the Better Option?

The last time Larson ran at “the track too tough to tame,” he led 44 laps and had a second-place finish. Though he has yet to pick up a win at Darlington, he has led the most laps in two of his six career starts there and three of those runnings ended in a podium finish. His worst finish at this track was 14th.

In four 1.5-mile races this season, Larson has three top-five finishes, including a victory, and he was in the mix last week before getting tangled up in some accidents.

NASCAR Predictions this week for the Goodyear 400: Darlington Spring Race

It seems week in and week out our picks are up at the front until pit strategy or an accident wipes out our chances. I guess that’s NASCAR betting! Here are my three picks for the Goodyear 400 Darlington spring race.

Denny Hamlin +450: I could be that goof that bets on Hamlin every race this year and he ends up winning the championship with consistency but limited wins. However, you can play Hamlin to win, as well as Hamlin to finish in the top five, which has hit in eight of 11 races this season. I firmly believe that he will find victory lane sooner than later.

Kyle Larson +450: Probably not a great idea to take the two favorites but the oddsmakers set the two drivers correctly this week. Larson has been a rocketship at the 1.5-mile tracks this season and while he didn’t get to run at Darlington last year, half of his six career starts have resulted in a podium finish – it’s hard not to back him.

Kevin Harvick +700: Harvick was the go-to bet last season, winning nine of the 36 races. This year, it has been an up-and-down campaign for him, with four finishes of 10th or worse but also four top-five finishes, including a second-place run last week. He won two of the three runnings at Darlington last year and is starting on the outside of the first row when the green flag drops.
