Hamlin leads Daytona 500 odds

By

Oddsmakers obviously like known quantities, so it’s no great surprise that defending Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin is favored to claim a third straight Harley J. Earl Trophy this Sunday. The Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota driver — who also won the 500 in 2016 — topped the list released by BetOnline (www.BetOnline.ag) at 8-1, edging Ford’s Brad Keselowski and Chevy’s Chase Elliott.

Dark-horse backers might focus on the likes of former Daytona 500 winner Kurt Busch at 20-1, or Ryan Newman at 50-1. What a comeback story that would make…
