Verizon 200 at the Brickyard Odds: Elliott Holds Shortest Odds

Chase Elliott is the favorite in the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard odds at Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course.

Although the NASCAR Cup Series has visited Indianapolis Motor Speedway annually for many years, this is the first time drivers will run on the Brickyard’s road course. Last week at Watkins Glen, another road course, it was Kyle Larson who drove to victory lane. However, it is teammate Chase Elliott who is the chalk in the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard odds this week.

Online sportsbook Bovada has released the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard odds with Elliott as the +200 favorite. He is followed closely by Larson at +300, Martin Truex Jr. at +800, Kyle Busch at +1100 and Denny Hamlin at +1400 to round out the top five drivers on the oddsboard.

We can examine the NASCAR odds further by using our sports betting calculator. Elliott’s odds of +200 represent an implied win probability of 33.33 percent and a winning $100 bet on him to win the race would profit you $200. See our How to Bet NASCAR guide to give you all the tips you need for placing a bet on the race.

Why is Elliott the Favorite to Win at Indianapolis Motor Speedway?

To start, Elliott’s two victories this season have both come at a road course. Furthermore, he has finished first or second in four of the five road-course races this year, with only a late accident at the Daytona Road Course resulting in a finish outside of the top 10.

In the two races in which he finished second, it was teammate Kyle Larson who picked up the checkered flag, including last week at Watkins Glen – despite Elliott having the fastest car and driving to the front from the rear twice.

Elliott has now run in 17 road courses in the Cup Series and has seven victories to show for it, with 10 top-five finishes. It all boils down to Chase being the road king right now – he should rightfully be the favorite ahead of every road-course race.

NASCAR Prediction This Week for the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard: Indianapolis Motor Speedway

NASCAR has had a few races added to the schedule this season for the first time, which can make handicapping difficult. That said, with this being a road course, there are certain drivers who always find themselves in the mix at the end of the race and that’s where I have to lay my money.

Chase Elliott +200: Chase is the road king. He finished 21st at the Daytona Road Course earlier this year after leading most of the race, but since then he has two wins and two second-place finishes in four road courses. I anticipate Elliott once again challenging for a checkered flag at another road course this weekend.

Kyle Larson +300: If it isn’t Chase winning the road courses, then it must be Kyle Larson – at least that has been the case in the last four runnings. There’s merit in betting Larson nearly every week this season, especially for a top-five finish. He has the most wins and most stage wins, by far the most laps led and is tied for the most top-five finishes. Never stress a Larson bet.

Kyle Busch +1100: Busch had some difficulties in 2020 and finally got the monkey off his back at Kansas with a win earlier this season. Including that race, he has nine top-five finishes over 13 races – two wins and seven podium finishes. When Kyle is in a groove, he’s without a doubt a hard driver to fade. However, it is paramount that he has a good qualifying effort on Sunday morning.
