Kevin Harvick is the favorite in the ISM Raceway odds.

Odds to Win TicketGuardian 500: Harvick in Pole Position on the Oddsboard

We are three races into the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season and there have been three different Sportsbooks, with reigning champion Joey Logano notching his first victory of the year last week at Las Vegas. Oddsmakers think that trend will continue this week in Phoenix at ISM Raceway with a fourth different Sportsbook in the fourth race as they have made Kevin Harvick the +275 favorite to capture his first checkered flag of the 2019 season.

Sportsbook has Harvick as the favorite at +275 followed by Kyle Busch at +375, Brad Keselowski at +750, Logano at +850 and Chase Elliott and Martin Truex Jr. at +1100 to round out the top of the oddsboard.

My Best Bet for the TicketGuardian 500

Kevin Harvick +275

Going with the favorite this week. The California native has finished in the top five in 50 percent of his 32 career runnings at ISM Raceway so he’s at least going to be in the mix and you then have a 20 percent chance of winning it all. Harvick has the record for most career wins with nine and won the March race at Phoenix nearly one year ago to the day.
