NASCAR Cup Series 2023 Championship Betting Odds & Analysis Before Season Start

NASCAR Cup Series 2023 Championship Betting Odds & Analysis Before Season Start

Written by on January 27, 2023

Hard as it may seem to believe, we are now only a week away from seeing NASCAR drivers back on the track. Next weekend will see the Clash at the Coliseum, which is essentially a preseason race. After that, we have a pair of duel races at Daytona before getting to the Daytona 500 on February 19. With all of that in mind, you don’t have a lot of time to get your wagers for the Cup Series Championship posted before the season begins and the odds begin to change, oftentimes in the wrong direction. There are some very familiar names in at the top of the bookies board as we look ahead to the 2023 NASCAR season, so let’s take a look at some of the current NASCAR Championship odds favorites, keeping in mind that these odds can and will change.

2023 NASCAR Cup Series Championship | Odds To Win

Chase Elliott (+550)

In terms of consistency, there really isn’t a better bet than Chase Elliott. He is on a run that has seen him make it all the way to the final four in each of the last 3 seasons. He win his lone championship in 2020, and then followed that up by finishing 4th in each of the last 2 seasons. Elliott has a way of racking up points and staying among the leaders in just about every race, and if he can turn more of those close calls into wins, there is no reason why he can’t add another championship to his resume in 2023.

Kyle Larson (+600)

You could argue that Larson had a disappointing season in 2022, but part of that has to be because he set the bar so high when he won it all the year prior. Larson was an absolute beast in 2022, basically taking the lead early and never looking back. He made it to the Round of 8 last year, but he ended up finishing 7th overall and was never really able to get a good, consistent run of form going throughout the season. The pressure is off a little this time around, so we might see a bounce back year for Larson.

Denny Hamlin (+800)

We talked about consistency when discussing Chase Elliott, and the same rules very much apply for Hamlin. He may be the best driver in the Cup Series never to have won a championship. He has, though, come very close on several occasions and is coming off a 2022 season that saw him finish 5th overall. All of that suggests he is a bit of a risky bet to win the Cup Series, but given that he always seems to be in the mix, the law of averages suggests that he might be able to get over the top just once.

Ryan Blaney (+1000)

If anyone is due for a breakout season, it might well be Ryan Blaney, and judging by these odds, the bookies seem to agree. Over the past 4 seasons, Blaney has finished in the top 10 overall, with his lack of wins hurting his ability to get to the final four. He went through the entire season in 2022 without taking a checkered flag, but he did close things out with back-to-back podium finishes. Might that be a sign that he is ready to come out hot in 2023.
