For the second week in a row, Kyle Busch comes into the weekend as the most-backed option for the upcoming NASCAR Cup Series Race.
For last weekend’s the Pocono Organics 325, 14% of all bettors wagered on Busch to win and 24% of the money was on him. He finished in fifth place.
For this week’s Big Machine Hand Sanitizer 400, Busch is backed by 13% of bettors, again the most, but the margin is much closer. Busch has the third-shortest odds at +550.
Kevin Harvick is the favorite (+400) and is the second-most supported driver with 12% of bets.
As far as the money is concerned, Busch, Denny Hamlin (+500) and Harvick are all tied for first with 12% of the handles backing each of them.
Busch still doesn’t have a win in 10 races this season. He’s 10th in the current NASCAR Cup standings. Busch has won twice at this week’s track, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, with his last victory there coming in 2016.
