2021 Geico 500 NASCAR Odds, Preview, and Prediction

By Hank Blaine

The NASCAR Cup Series is heading to Talladega this weekend for the 2021 Geico 500. After last weekend’s win by Alex Bowman in the 2021 Toyota 400, we head into a race track that gives so much opportunity for anyone to take the win.

It’s now time to head towards a longer track and see if any of the previous winners can take another win if we’ll get another driver to take the win. There hasn’t been a repeat from previous drivers yet this season. This raceway can definitely bring some heat.

Let’s take a closer look at the last odds to win the 2021 Geico 500, along with a betting preview and expert predictions. Be sure to check out for more NASCAR odds and lines at our online Bitcoin sportsbook

Who Are the Favorites to Win the 2021 Geico 500?

Danny Hamlin

The current leader heads into Talladega as the top favorite. He’s already won in this track back in October 2020, making it the first time Toyota wins at the track since 2014. And an even more fun fact, Denny Hamlin won that race as well. So there’s no doubt experience is one his side. Let’s see if he can get his first win this season.

Joey Logano

Logano is also no stranger to Talladega, winning the race back in 2018. His performance this season has been good, being in the top 10 in all the races except for two and he won the Food City Dirt Race in march, making it his only victory so far this season. He can definitely bring competition this weekend.

Ryan Blaney

Blaney comes in as last year’s winner in the Geico 500. He won the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 last month. Ford has had a good run in this track, winning 10 of the last 13 races. It wouldn’t be strange to see Blaney take this race as well.

Who are the Dark Horses to Win the 2021 Geico 500?

Chase Elliot

One of the drivers who’s tied in the odds is Chase Elliot, one who’s been on the Geico 500 before. His last victory on this track was in 2019. Currently, Elliot is favorite to win the NASCAR Cup Series this season. He might just get his first one on Sunday.

Brad Keselowski

Another veteran and three-time Geico 500 winner Brad Keselowski is also tied with Elliot. So far, he hasn’t been able to take a win yet, same as Elliot, Hamlin, Harvick and Kyle Busch. This might be his chance to improve his position on the board. He’s still in the top 10 right now, but that could change this weekend if he doesn’t step up.

Expert’s Prediction for the 2021 Geico 500 NASCAR Cup Series Race

This NASCAR season has been all over the place. So far none of the previous winners has been able to do it twice. At this point, anything can happen. Hamlin might be the favorite but he has yet to win a race this season, even though he leads the rankings. Keep an eye of their practice performances before Sunday’s race. This could give you the edge when placing your sports betting picks
