For fans of NASCAR betting, the season has flipped on a dime. We’ve gone from high-value surprises winning almost every week, to one driver suddenly dominating the series. Now, the question: How long will Kyle Larson’s run last?

Although it didn’t count as a points win, Larson’s triumph in last weekend’s All-Star exhibition resulted in his third straight trip to Victory Lane. That streak comes on the heels of three straight runner-up finishes, which means the Hendrick Motorsports driver hasn’t finished worse than second since May 2. He’s the NASCAR race odds favorite for Sunday’s event at Nashville Superspeedway, which is hosting the Cup Series for the first time.

A more mature Larson, in Hendrick equipment far better than he wheeled during his days with Chip Ganassi, has proven a potent combination. Now NASCAR bettors face the decision of whether to stick with a clear but lower-value favorite – Larson’s odds at DraftKings of +275 to win Sunday well outdistance the +650 of No. 2 choice Martin Truex Jr. – or pursue potential better returns with a driver who might be less likely to win.

Ally 400 at Nashville Superspeedway Expert Picks and Predictions

Chase Elliott to Win, +700

Larson’s dominance of late has overshadowed a very strong run by his Hendrick teammate Elliott, who hasn’t finished worse than seventh in a points race since April 25, and has been first, second, second and third over the past four weeks. No driver has any relevant track experience at Nashville, which shut down after its last NASCAR national series event in 2011.

But the 1.3-mile oval bears some resemblance to 1.5-mile Homestead-Miami Speedway, where Elliott owns an average finish of ninth. Larson looks like the real deal, to be certain, as evidenced by his move to the top of the NASCAR championship futures board at +400 .

But he’s not going to win every race. And that Hendrick dominance clearly transcends just the No. 5 car, giving bettors more than one legitimate option to win every week.

Ally 400 at Nashville Superspeedway Betting Tips

Among the drivers in Sunday’s race, Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Joey Logano, Brad Keselowski and Austin Dillon all have victories at Nashville Superspeedway – though they came in either NASCAR Trucks or Xfinity Series cars, and the most recent was a decade ago. The track was closed in 2011, and it took parent company Dover Motorsports moving an event from its Delaware track to get Nashville a spot on the NASCAR schedule.

To gain a little extra track time, Busch and Tyler Reddick are also running in the weekend’s Xfinity race, while William Byron will compete in the Truck Series event. The Cup cars will also have a 50-minute practice session on Saturday and qualifying on Sunday morning, giving bettors at least an idea of which drivers have the best handle on a long, flat oval.

Without any relevant previous track results, bettors will lean largely on recent performance, which is why Larson and Elliott are among the favorites with the sports betting sites. Denny Hamlin has been eighth or better in four of five points races, though he’s still searching for his first victory. Truex is the No. 2 odds choice at the top sportsbooks, but he has finished better than 19th just once in his past four events.

My three bets would be Elliott to win at +700 , Hendrick Motorsports to win at +105 , and Alex Bowman top-five at +175 (he has been ninth or better in four straight points races).
