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 flat track in Phoenix for the fourth race of the season.

Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano are riding streaks of eight top-12 endings dating back to last year, but both motorists will take a backseat to the current dominating performances of Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch at Phoenix.

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

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

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

But unlike in these previous races, all drivers will use a new car installment executed by NASCAR, one different from that which we saw the last fourteen days at Atlanta and Las Vegas. Teams will utilize a spacer — and no ducts — for the first time. They’ll use a engine in Phoenix instead of the engine in Vegas. NASCAR expects to see a well-handling car. The package could close the gap Busch and Harvick have had on the field.

So far in two races with the slightly differing rules package of NASCAR, Ford has five consecutive stage wins and has led 65 percent of the laps. Ford driver Aric Almirola, Harvick’s teammate, will soon be a sleeper driver. He was third in New Hampshire’s similar layout last season, fifth at Richmond and fourth in last year’s fall race in Phoenix. Almirola is 20/1 to win on Sunday and we like him .
