As a continuation of the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series, the Instacart 500 will be held at the Phoenix Raceway on Sunday, March 14th. Kyle Larson (+1000) is coming off his first win of the 2021 season and could be in the hunt, but several other drivers have more favorable odds. We’ll go over the odds of the frontrunners here.

2020 Cup Series champ Chase Elliot (+550) is the odds-on favorite despite having just one win in six Cup Series starts at Phoenix. He’s yet to get a win this year but sits at fourth in the points race. Brad Keselowski opened at +650 along with Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick, but Keselowski has improved to +600.

Harvick has won an impressive five Instacart 500s in his career and should be considered a series threat. Kyle Busch and Joey Logano round out the top five at +800. Busch has won two of his last five races at Phoenix, including the 2019 Instacart 500. Logano is the reigning champion and is looking to repeat.

Here are the current odds for all of the drivers competing.
