Last season, Kyle Larson won his first NASCAR Cup Series Championship. He dominated the season with 10 wins, including the Championship race at Phoenix.
Kyle Larson has a chance to repeat as the series champion, but he has fierce competition trying to run him down.
Young talent is emerging in the series. Rookie Austin Cindric was able to hold off multiple veteran drivers and win the Daytona 500 this year. Also, drivers who have struggled in the past are seeing more success with the Gen 6 car, unveiled this season.
The odds for the NASCAR season haven’t changed much since the beginning of the campaign. Title favorites are still emerging in the middle of the season.

Who Are the Favorites to Win the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series Championship?
Kyle Larson (+750 to win NASCAR Title)
Larson is coming off of his most successful season in the NASCAR Cup Series. The season saw him win 10 times, dominate at 1.5 mile ovals, and ultimately raise the championship trophy in Phoenix.
Larson has started this season strong with nine Top 5s, including a win at Auto Club Speedway. He sits 5th in the playoff standings and is 126 points out of 1st place.
He was the preseason favorite to win the title this year, and he has only dropped one spot in the lines. Kyle Larson is a safe bet because of his consistency and his ability to adjust to any track conditions.
Chase Elliott (+400)
NASCAR’s most popular driver currently sits at the top of the championship standings, after his most recent win at Pocono after Denny Hamlin was disqualified.
If you are looking for consistency in the front of the pack, Elliott is your guy. He has 15 Top 10s already this year in just 21 races. He only has 1 DNF this season and has avoided accidents and penalties that would push him further back in the field.
Chase has the ability to be successful on any style track he wants. His two greatest strengths lie in road courses and Superspeedways. The youngster is always working on his craft and getting better at the little things.
He is hitting his stride midway through the year, and he will have a shot at winning his second title in three years.
Ross Chastain +800
Ross Chastain is having his best season in the Cup Series. He sits in second place in the championship standings, and has found victory lane two times through the halfway point of the year.
Chastain leads the field in Top 5s with 10, and he is second in Top 10s with 14 through 21 races. He also has 3 runner-up finishes to go along with his two victories.
Chastain will likely be running for the championship in Phoenix at the end of the season. His line is getting shorter, and he has cracked the Top 3 this week after his runner-up finish at Atlanta. Jump on the bet before the line gets shorter.
