The Duck Commander 500 betting odds have been released for this Sunday’s epic race on the NASCAR tour, and after offering up the winner at Las Vegas I’m hoping for another good weekend at the track. Previously known as the Samsung 500, this race will begin Sunday afternoon at 3pm EST and roar from the illustrious Texas Speedway. Hopefully mother nature will cooperate this time and keep the rain away.
NASCAR Duck Commander 500 Betting Odds
Defending champion Kyle Busch leads the fray at +700 , which are the same odds as Matt Kenseth and Brad Keselowski who is coming off a thrilling victory at the Las Vegas track where he thundered past Dale Earnhardt Jr. for the unexpected victory. Busch should receive strong consideration as the defending champion, but Keselowski is probably the strongest take amongst the favorites in the Duck Commander 500 betting odds.
For his part, Earnhardt Jr. is a +1200 midplay and should warrant your attention simply on namesake alone. To be honest, he’s probably a better top-3 bet. However, after a stunning performance at the 2014 Daytona, and a stiff push at the Boyd Gaming 300, Earnhardt Jr. seems to be getting after business with a higher level of aggression than we usually see from him. He’s definitely worth a play as your lead bet, catch-up play or soft hedge as a top-3 placer with great Duck Commander 500 betting odds.
Falling way out of grace is Austin Dillon who is a +10000 longshot after making waves for his front row placing at Daytona. Dillon is still just 23-years old and boasts a big sentimental backing since he’s wheeling the legendary No. 3 car. Dillon is a points monster but he rarely bothers to win races outright. The hype on Dillon has subsided in the betting community, and in the process his odds have stretched out to the point that they’re just silly.
You can check out our sportsbook for all the odds on the Duck Commander 500 betting odds, but my early leans are Keselowski and Earnhardt Jr. who I expect to wage war for that checkered flag when all is said and done.
