NASCAR: Betting odds for Verizon 200

Kyle Larson is closing the gap on teammate Chase Elliott when it comes to the betting market’s expectations on road courses. Larson is as skinny as +280 (bet $100 to win $280) at BetMGM to take the checkers at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course on Sunday, a significantly shorter price than the +450 he cashed at in his second road-course victory of the season, last week at Watkins Glen International.

Despite finishing second to Larson last week, Elliott remains the road-course favorite, offered at +200 at multiple shops for this week’s race, the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard. He has piloted the No. 9 Chevrolet to six wins and two second-place finishes over the 10 most recent road-course races in the Cup Series .

After the Hendrick Motorsports duo, there’s a large drop down the oddsboard to Martin Truex Jr., who finished a distant third at Watkins Glen. Truex is +600 at BetMGM.
