NASCAR Betting returns to Daytona International Speedway for the penultimate time this season on Sunday, when Kevin Harvick goes in pursuit of a third straight win in the 2020 Go Bowling 235. Here is what U.S. oddsmakers predict. By the way, NASCAR and BetMGM announced a multi-year sports betting partnership, check odds and bonus offers at BetMGM.
Harvick stands clear as the only driver to have won back-to-back races this year, but the standings leader will attempt to go one further and boost his cushion at the top even further.
The Stewart-Haas Racing star is two places behind the odds leader at +700 (8.00) with Sugarhouse predictions on 2020 Go Bowling 235 NASCAR race, meaning he could still pose good value to back for victory. Chase Elliott is the lowest price for New Jersey customers at +375 (4.75) despite having failed to win a race since the Alsco Uniforms 500 back on May 28.
2020 Go Bowling 235 Betting Preview & Prediction
Few would argue against Harvick’s status as the most consistent NASCAR driver so far this season having collected 15 top-five finishes and six victories, each more than any other contender.
However, Denny Hamlin can climb level on six wins in 2020 if he were to triumph Sunday, and the Joe Gibbs representative comes in at the slightly more appealing price of +800 (9.00) for New Jersey customers.
Hamlin has numerous fond memories from Daytona and has collected three opening-day victories at the track. He hasn’t fared as fortunately in meets later in the season historically, but few drivers look to be in better shape after finishing second or higher in three of his last four races.
The superstitious may also be intrigued to know Hamlin has finished second or better in any race making a repeat visit to any given track this season, posing positive omens ahead of his return to Daytona.
Prediction: Denny Hamlin to win.
