It’s been a wild start to the season in which we’ve seen a 66-1 and 60-1 winner thus far. Will these longer odds trends continue on Sunday at the Phoenix Raceway? If so, look at these five to give you a win on a sleeper and potential spoiler to win the fifth race of the 2021 season.
Kyle Larson (+900)
It’s only a matter of time before Larson wins in Phoenix. The California native has four consecutive top six finishes at Phoenix including three of those in the top four. In fact, Larson has six top sixes in his last eight Phoenix tries overall. He won last Sunday too.
Ryan Blaney (+1600)
Arguably the top Penske driver at this track. Blaney, may have only scored two top five finishes in 10 Phoenix starts but two of which were both third place efforts last year. He also was sixth in November to give himself three top six results in his last four Phoenix starts.
Kurt Busch (+2800)
Worth the gamble here. Busch, has eight top 10 finishes at Phoenix since Nov. 2014. His last six spring race finishes have seen him finish fifth, sixth, 25th, 10th, seventh and sixth respectively.
Aric Almirola (+5000)
Since he joined Stewart-Haas Racing, Almirola has been stout in Phoenix. The Florida native has finished in the top 10 in five of his last seven starts including finishes of ninth, fourth and eighth respectively in the spring race. After his slow start to 2021, he needs a good run on Sunday.
Tyler Reddick (+6600)
He had a top five car in this Phoenix race last year. In Xfinity competition, he has four top 10’s in as many tries including a third place run in both races in 2019.
