NASCAR Cup Series United Rentals Work United 500 Odds and Betting Analysis

Written by on March 10, 2023

It has been an interesting start to the 2023 Cup Series season, with 3 different drivers winning each of the races to this point. We have also seen 2020 champion, Chase Elliott, forced to sit out after suffering a snowboarding injury that is likely to have him out for the next 6 weeks. The show must go on, though, and the drivers will be off to Phoenix this weekend for the United Rentals Work United 500. The big question now is whether we will see another different driver pick up a win or have one of the previous winners take early control of the overall standings. Let’s take a look at the NASCAR odds and some of the drivers likely to be in the hunt this weekend.


NASCAR Betting Odds, Analysis and Prediction for the United Rentals Work United 500


When: Sunday, March 12th
Where: Phoenix Raceway

Time: 3:30 PM EST


Ryan Blaney

I think it is more than fair to suggest that we have not seen the best of Ryan Blaney through the opening 3 races of the season. He got off to a decent enough start, finishing in the top 10 in the Daytona 500, but he followed that up with two poor showings, by his standards, in the following 2 races. There is, though, plenty of evidence to suggest that this might be a breakout weekend for Blaney, as he always seems to enjoy racing in Phoenix. In his last 5 runs on that track, he has never been outside the top 10, and while he has not had a win in that time, he has been among the leaders until the end.


Joey Logano

The defending Cup Series champions quickly served notice that he is going to be tough to beat again this season after getting things started with a 2nd place finish at Daytona. He followed that up with a top 10 run in Week 2 before having a rather poor showing last weekend There will certainly be fond memories for Logano in Phoenix, as he won there in the final race of last season to clinch that championship. Can he go out and make it 2 in a row in the Phoenix track? I might not bet against it.


Kyle Larson

Speaking of slow starts to the season, Larson really needed a solid showing in Las Vegas last weekend, and he delivered the good, finishing 2nd in that one. The first 2 races had not gone well for Larson, as he didn’t really get near the top 10 in either of those. That run in Vegas should help him get back on track, but can he build on that this weekend in Phoenix? He won there in 2021 to put the finishing touch on what was a magnificent season and a Cup Series championship run. I think the great run last weekend makes Larson very dangerous here.


Kyle Busch

Of the drivers we are discussing in this piece, Busch is the only one to have picked up a victory this season. That win came in California in the second race of the year, and while a win is good, you have to wonder if it was a bit of an aberration given that he fell outside the top 10 in the other 2 races this year. He has, though, been top 10 in each of his last 3 runs in Phoenix, so while I am not on him to win here, I do think he might be a decent top 5 bet this weekend.
