Go Bowling at the Glen Odds: Elliott Tops the Oddsboard

Chase Elliott is the favorite in the Go Bowling at the Glen odds.

It is the final sprint before the NASCAR playoffs begin as the drivers and crew have had two weeks off to prep for the last four races of the regular season. The NASCAR Cup Series heads to Watkins Glen International for the first race back and it is Chase Elliott who is the chalk in the Go Bowling at the Glen odds.

Online sportsbook Bovada has the Go Bowling at the Glen odds and placed Elliott as the favorite at +200. The reigning champion is followed by Kyle Larson at +450, Martin Truex Jr. at +650, Kyle Busch at +800 and Denny Hamlin at +1200 to round out the top five on the oddsboard.

According to our sports betting calculator, Elliott’s +200 betting line represents an implied win probability of 33.33 percent. If you like Chase – or any other driver – to win in the Go Bowling at the Glen odds, but you have never placed a bet, check out our How to Bet NASCAR guide to help get you in the action.

Why is Elliott Favored to Win at Watkins Glen International?

Flash back to August 2018: the 22-year-old Chase Elliott was still searching for his first Cup Series win until he got to the Glen. He was dominant in his first win, leading 50 of the 90 laps, and finished with a 7.5-second margin of victory.

One year later at the same track, Elliott once again drove to victory lane. Though his margin of victory was much slimmer (under 0.5 seconds), he led 80 of the 90 laps that time. Could he lead wire to wire this time around?

The 2020 Cup Series champion is quickly becoming the road king of the drivers. He has competed in 16 road courses in his short career, posting 11 top-10 finishes and seven victories. Winning nearly half of the last 16 road courses is good enough reason to me for him to be the pre-race favorite.

NASCAR Prediction This Week for the Go Bowling at the Glen: Watkins Glen International

With only four races remaining to secure a spot in the playoffs, there will be teams making big strategic moves to try to steal a win, such as when to pit, especially if there is impending inclement weather. That can impact who wins the race if a driver currently out of the playoffs gets lucky with a risky move. However, I’m going to keep it simple for my three picks this week.

Chase Elliott +200: I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I don’t like taking the favorite to win a race, especially with odds so low. But a winning bet is a winning bet and with Chase Elliott on a road course, it’s an auto-bet. He has been dominant in these types of races and is the back-to-back winner at the Glen, searching for a third in a row.

Martin Truex Jr. +650: The man who finished behind Elliott in the last two Go Bowling at the Glen races was Martin Truex Jr. He will be starting two positions ahead of Elliott when the green flag drops and it wouldn’t be terribly surprising to see the two work together to make their way to the front. While Truex doesn’t have the success Elliott does at road courses, he’s no slouch with four wins and 19 top-10 finishes over 36 road-course tracks, including a win at Watkins Glen.

Kyle Busch +800: Busch had a really good run before the two-week break with four straight podiums, including a win at Pocono, but he had a 37th-place finish in the last race at New Hampshire because of an early crash. He has climbed to third in the NASCAR Cup championship odds with his recent success and among his 15 career races at Watkins Glen, he has 12 top-10 finishes and two wins.
