Denny Hamlin Wins 3rd Straight Daytona 500 (+800) – Odds via Borgata NJ

Of the past five editions of the Daytona 500, Denny Hamlin has won three, one of only six drivers to have reached that figure in the history of the race. Hamlin is also part of an even more exclusive club of drivers who have won at Daytona two years running, but he can clinch his own place in the history books by becoming the first to win three in a row in 2021.

The NASCAR Cup Series makes its long-awaited return to the schedule on Sunday, February 14, and what better time than Valentine’s Day for Hamlin to renew his romance at Daytona International Speedway?

The sportsbooks are unanimous in ranking the 40-year-old as the frontrunner to retain his crown this month, but Borgata offers New Jersey customers the best odds to win at +800. 

In his last seven appearances at the season-opening Daytona, he’s finished outside the top three only twice (one of those being a run to fourth in 2015. Joey Logano, Chase Elliott and Ryan Blaney each follow closely behind at +1000, but it’s Tampa, Florida, native Hamlin who deserves the backing to believe he can break a unique Daytona record.
