Betting On The 2023 Daytona 500: Denny Hamlin Can Become 2nd Leading Daytona 500 Winner

The 2023 Daytona 500 begins this Sunday at 2:30 PM on FOX. Qualifying begins tonight at 8 PM on FS1.

The front row for the Daytona 500 has not been set, but legal NASCAR betting sites already have odds posted for Sunday’s winning driver.

2023 Daytona 500 Odds To Win

  • Kyle Larson+1100
  • Alex Bowman+1200
  • Denny Hamlin+1200
  • Ryan Blaney+1200
  • Chase Elliott+1400
  • Joey Logano+1400
  • Kyle Busch+1400
  • William Byron+1400
  • Aric Almirola+1600
  • Austin Cindric+1600
  • Bubba Wallace+1800
  • Kevin Harvick+3000
  • Jimmie Johnson+4000

Denny Hamlin was the early favorite to win his fourth Daytona 500 race, but he’s slipped to third behind Kyle Larson and Alex Bowman.

If Hamlin wins, he’ll not only deliver $12 payouts on a dollar wager, he’ll tie Cale Yarborough as the second all time winner at Daytona with 4 total victories.

Right now he is in a logjam in third place with Bobbly Allison, Dale Jarrett, and Jeff Gordon. The driver with the most wins is Richard Petty with a distant and impressive 7 trophies.

Hamlin is still a spry 42 years of age, so there’s some time left for him to catch “The King.”

Speaking of spry, last year’s winner, Austin Cindric, is placed 10th overall in the NASCAR odds with a +1600 moneyline. Cindric is only 24 years old.

Other options for betting on the 2023 Daytona 500 include odds for top 3 finishes, as well as top 5, top 10, and so on. There are also several NASCAR props on the boards for Sunday’s race. Here are a few that caught our eye.

Daytona 500 Prop Bets

We’ve seen motorsports props for winning car manufacturer, but the following line offers action on the top placing driver for a brand – Toyota.

  • Truex Jr, Martin +490
  • Reddick, Tyler +490
  • Bell, Christopher +540

Legal sports betting sites are offering similar racing prop bets for Ford and Chevrolet. If you’re looking for some fun prop bets just to lay some additional action on the race, here are a couple that may satisfy that urge.

Daytona 500 – Car Number Of Race Winner

  • Even -129
  • Odd -106

Daytona 500 – Car Number Of Race Winner

  • Over 15.5 -119
  • Under 15.5 -116

These skillless props offer a little extra fun for the 500, but won’t payout until a winner is declared.

Any of the NASCAR futures that are posted for the 500 right now will remain on the boards after the starting gun this Sunday. These live NASCAR odds will keep accepting wagers throughout the race, but each book will remove the line at their time of choosing.

The live racing odds will feature moneylines that can change at any moment. We say this for two reasons – it is okay if you didn;t place a prerace wager, and don’t wait too long to gamble on live Daytona 500 betting lines.
