Race: Daytona 500
Track: Daytona International Speedway
Location: Daytona Beach, Florida
Date: February 20th, 2022
Time: 2:30 p.m. (ET)
This Sunday, in the kickoff to the 2022 Cup Series, racing fans alike will be joining forces to catch the iconic Daytona 500.
While racers did warm up last weekend, with an exhibition on the very small quarter mile track in the Coliseum. Don’t be surprised if some present track jitters coming into this weekends showdown of next gen cars.
NASCAR 2022 Daytona 500 Race Odds: Kyle Larson +360
By no surprise, the defending 2021 NASCAR champion enters the first race of 2022, as the betting favorite to win the race. However, Larson’s struggled at Daytona in the past, as his best placement is sixth in fifteen races overall.
NASCAR 2022 Daytona 500 Race Odds: Chase Elliot +500
The runner-up in last years Daytona 500 is ironically the second overall favorite on Sunday. For people that may of forgot, Elliot is an extremely competent racer and proved so by capturing the 2020 NASCAR champion title.
That being said, can he overcome his shortcomings in Florida and win his first title at Daytona International Speedway?
NASCAR 2022 Daytona 500 Race Odds: Denny Hamlin +700
The future hall of famer and three time champion at Daytona, looks to add to his resume at the start of the 2022 season. While Hamlin has won three times on this track, its important to note he’s raced here 32 times in total.
Nonetheless, he’s been around since the mid 00’s and all those wins came to fruition in 2016 and later.
NASCAR 2022 Daytona 500 Race Odds: William Byron +800
Like previous years, Byron qualified strong and the odds have reflected. Although, he regrettably placed 26th in last years race and only owns two wins out of his 144 races in The Cup Series.
All things considered, does William Byron deserve to be in the top four of the betting odds, considering his uninspiring performances, time in and time out?
NASCAR 2022 Daytona 500 Race Odds: Martin Truex Jr. +900
The iconic stock car driver, Martin Truex Jr, has unfortunately fell short in all of his times at this speedway. For example, his best placement was second in 2016, out of all his 33 starts here.
However, Martin was the runner-up in last years Cup Series and owns 31 wins in his long career. Meaning, never count out one of the best all around drivers in modern history.

2022 Daytona 500 Betting Prediction: Winner – Denny Hamlin +700
With a ton of uncertainty heading into the first race of the year, we’ve decided to lean with the reliable, three time champion on this track. Like aforementioned, he’s been mightily successful in this spot, over the past five years.
In this time, he captured all three titles at Daytona, even with back to back wins in 2019 and 2020. All things considered, we believe Denny Hamlin becomes a four time champ, at arguably the most legendary track in NASCAR.
