Updated Daytona 500 Odds
The official start to the 2020 NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series schedule was forced to wait one more day Sunday after the Daytona 500 race was postponed to Monday at 4 p.m. EST due to inclement weather.
Despite that adjustment, the betting favorites to win this year's Daytona 500 have remained almost completely steadfast, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, leaving Joey Logano (+1000), Denny Hamlin (+1000) and now Kyle Busch (formerly +1100) tied for the best odds to win the checkered flag at Daytona International Speedway on Monday evening.
Beyond this deadlock in the top 3, Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. are both tied at +1200 for the second-best odds to win Monday's race, while Brad Keselowski and Chase Elliott aren't far behind, tied at +1300 for the third-best odds to win Daytona.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who won pole for Daytona's starting position, shares the spot for the fifth-best odds with Ryan Blaney at +1600, sitting right behind Jimmie Johnson (+1400).
