The next event lies in Las Vegas, where there is a lot of history in top drivers winning. This is a fitting place to have the next wild NASCAR event, especially in the gambling section of the world.

Date: Sunday, March 7, 2021

TV-Time: FOX, 3:00 p.m. ET

Venue: Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Location: Las Vegas, Nevada

Betting Preview

It would be difficult to count out anyone for these races, especially someone that does not sit high on the odds list. Kyle Larson is a great example of a driver that could provide a win with interesting value.

Larson has driven well in Vegas, with only one finish that was worse than a ninth place. Looking into his last six starts, it includes a pair of runner-up finishes that he hopes to do even better with his new Hendrick Motorsports team.

Joey Logano has claimed victory twice out of the last four races in Vegas. Going back as far as 2013, he has gotten out of the top 10 only one time since 2013.

He also has the best among active drivers on average in Vegas. He has an average finish of about 8.4th place in Las Vegas and is going to be one to watch on the circuit.

Kevin Harvick would be another interesting driver to pay attention to. He was a top name from last season, and in 2021, he already has established three finishes that have been a sixth-place or better.

Harvick has also been dominant in Vegas, as he has shown with his driving for this year. Dating back to 2013, he has won two times here and has finished inside the top 10 every time except once.

Drivers to Watch For This Event

Depending on your strategy, you could choose a select few or many drivers to bet on. For example, you can narrow it down to the top 10. On average, the following drivers have led the market board for odds and betting opportunities.

  • Kevin Harvick 
  • Martin Truex, Jr. 
  • Denny Hamlin 
  • Chase Elliott 
  • Brad Keselowski 
  • Joey Logano 
  • Kyle Larson 
  • Ryan Blaney 
  • Kyle Busch 
  • Kurt Busch

Final Thoughts

Martin Truex Jr. is another interesting value driver to watch, too, especially from the Toyota group. He also has two victories coming from two different teams.

He has put together two victories and an impressive six times, placing within the top four dating back to 2015. To put this into perspective, he has two fellow Joe Gibbs Racing teammates, Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin, that offer a competitive push to drive.

However, neither one of them have better finishes at Vegas, at least to the consistency of driving there. Overall, this is going to be another very closely watched race as the market tries to react.
