2021 NASCAR Cup Betting Odds
The NASCAR Cup Series schedule has been full of surprises in the first 12 races. 10 different drivers have won, but only one driver has picked up more than one victory and that is Martin Truex Jr. with three wins. The NASCAR Cup Championship betting odds are heavily favoring him at this point in the season due to his three victories and consistency.
The best online sportsbooks have updated their NASCAR Cup championship betting odds. Truex is the favorite at +550 followed by Chase Elliott at +650., Denny Hamlin is at +650, Kyle Larson is at +650 and Brad Keselowski is at +800 at the Sportsbooks.

Why is Martin Truex the Favorite in the NASCAR Cup Championship Betting Odds?
As mentioned, Martin Truex Jr. is the only driver with more than one victory in the NASCAR Cup Series so far this season. While he hasn’t confirmed his spot in the playoffs just yet, it’s safe to say that his odds are fairly good.He has two top-five finishes, he has led the most laps and he won the third most stages.
Truex has one championship already so he knows how to win. He won at Phoenix this season, which is a good sign for him.Another good thing is that the first race of the playoffs is in a track where he has won before. The last race of the Round of 8 will be at Martinsville, which Truex has already won.
NASCAR Cup Betting Odds: The Value Pick
This season has been very competitive so far, and there have only been one driver who has won more than once. The betting odds are close, because the favorite is not as big a favorite. Nine total drivers are less likely to win at 10:1.Finding a good value is hard. I think the 10th driver on the board could be a diamond in the rough.
William Byron has a chance to win the NASCAR Monster Cup. He is currently on a 10-race streak in which he has finished inside the top 10, including four top-five finishes.
His 10 top-10 finishes are the most in NASCAR. He has 1 stage win and has led 150 laps. If Byron wins 12 games, he’ll get to cash. But it’s hard to get that many wins. He should still have a chance of making the playoffs.
