NASCAR at Phoenix betting odds, props, key stats to help bettors win TicketGuardian 500

After back-to-back Team Penske wins, NASCAR heads to ISM Raceway’s one-mile horizontal trail in Phoenix for the fourth race of the season.

Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano are driving streaks of eight top-12 finishes dating back to last season, but both drivers will take a backseat to the current dominating performances of Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch in Phoenix.

Harvick (9/4) and Busch (7/2) have the shortest odds to win Sunday’s TicketGuardian 500 and won at the course last season. This weekend, if Harvick were to triumph, he’d join an elite group, becoming only the sixth driver in series history to win 10 or even more Cup Series races in a single track; linking Richard Petty, Darrell Waltrip, Jimmie Johnson, David Pearson and Dale Earnhardt.

In three of those previous four Phoenix races, Busch has led 359 laps, including 117 in his triumph during last year’s playoffs — the first under the new configuration of this track.

Phoenix’s monitor is comparable to Richmond and New Hampshire and it’s no surprise both Harvick and Busch have experienced similar success at those racks. Busch has won the last two races at Richmond and 2017’s fall race at New Hampshire. Harvick won the most-recent race in New Hampshire and has finished in the top five in five of the past six races in Richmond.

But unlike in those previous races, all motorists will use a new automobile installment executed by NASCAR, another from that which we watched the previous fourteen days in Atlanta and Las Vegas. Teams may utilize a different-sized tapered spacer — and no ducts — for the first time. They will use a 750-horsepower engine at Phoenix instead of the 550-horsepower engine at Vegas. NASCAR hopes to see a well-handling car. The bundle could close the gap Busch and Harvick have had on the area.

So much in 2 races with the marginally differing rules bundle of NASCAR, Ford has led 65 percent of their laps and has five period wins. Harvick’s teammate, ford motorist Aric Almirola, will soon be a sleeper motorist to watch this weekend. He was third at New Hampshire’s similar design last season, fifth at Richmond and fourth in last season’s fall race in Phoenix. Almirola is 20/1 to win on Sunday and we enjoy him in a matchup with Kyle Larson in -110.
