NASCAR Phoenix Odds 2024: Shriners Children’s 500 at Phoenix Raceway

Fact Checked by Michael Peters

This week, Phoenix Raceway hosts the Shriners Children’s 500 NASCAR event, the fourth race in the 2024 Cup Series schedule and a major Arizona sports betting event. The green flag is scheduled to fall at 12:30 p.m. Arizona time (3:30 Eastern). Kyle Larson comes in as the most recent series winner. The Hendrick Motorsports driver dominated the field in the Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas on Sunday, winning both stages and the race for his first victory this season.

He was the favorite at DraftKings AZ at +400 odds in Vegas last week and led 181 of 267 laps.

NASCAR Odds at Phoenix Raceway: Shriners Children’s 500

Larson also enters the Shriners Children’s 500 at Phoenix Raceway as the favorite. He is listed at +600 with DraftKings, just ahead of defending series champion Ryan Blaney (+700) and Larson’s Hendrick teammate, Daytona 500 winner William Byron (+750).

Bettors at Arizona sports betting apps might want to keep an eye on odds for two drivers who have won three times apiece in Phoenix, Joey Logano (+1400) and Kyle Busch (+1200). They appear to be two pretty good value bets entering this weekend as does Denny Hamlin (+900) who snagged the pole for Sunday's race.
