After finishing second last weekend, Kyle Larson is now the favorite to win this weekend‘s All-Star race. This marks the 9th race of the 14 this season that oddsmakers have named Larson the favorite to win, that‘s 64.3% of races.

Larson is given +600 odds, or an implied 14.3% chance to win the All-Star race. Kyle Busch and Chase Elliott are tied for second at +700, or an implied 12.5% chance to win the race. William Byron at +900, an implied 10% chance, is the only other driver given at least a 10% chance to win the race.

The biggest surprise on the odds market this weekend comes from the +1200 tier, or an implied 7.7% chance to win the race. Denny Hamlin, Tyler Reddick, Ryan Blaney, and Martin Truex Jr. are all tied. Of course, Blaney is second in the Drivers‘ Championship standings and Truex is 6th, meanwhile, Reddick is 15th and Hamlin is 20th. So, to see them jumbled together is a little shocking.

Quote from OddsChecker spokesman Kyle Newman, “The All-Star has correctly predicted the Cup Series champion in each of the last 2 years. With Kyle Larson winning in 2021 and Chase Elliott winning in 2020. Will we see that trend continue this year? Elliott, +700, is the current championship leader with Blaney, +1200, and Byron, +900, behind him. If the All-Star race is going correctly predict another champion all eyes should be on those three.”
