2022 NASCAR Verizon 200 at the Brickyard Odds and Predictions

2022 NASCAR Verizon 200 at the Brickyard Odds and Predictions

NASCAR is at one of the most historic race tracks in the world at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard. TheSportsGeek has the best Verizon 200 at the Brickyard odds for the race on Sunday.

This was a 400-mile race, but NASCAR moved this to a road course for 200 miles last year. Winning the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard isn’t the same as the Indianapolis 500, though it’s a big race on the Cup Series schedule and a unique road course.

CHASE ELLIOTT LEADING COMFORTABLY
Hendrick Motorsports’ Chase Elliott continues to run a strong campaign in 2022. He’s the most consistent driver on the grid this season in the Cup Series. If he’s not winning, Elliott has his car near the front.

He’s coming off his fourth win of the season on the Tricky Triangle at Pocono over Tyler Reddick. Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch were disqualified, allowing Elliott to finish P1, P2, P1, P2, P1 over his last five races.

Elliott is the Kyle Larson of last season with his domination in the summer.

Everything could change once the green flag drops on the playoffs, though. Elliott is in the playoffs ten times over. There are a couple of notable names on the bubble, as Ryan Blaney and Martin Truex Jr. are winless and still trying to earn enough points. Kevin Harvick is also a bubble driver with the regular season winding down.

This makes the Brickyard race a big one this weekend. We’re taking a look at the latest Verizon 200 at the Brickyard odds from the top NASCAR betting sites. Also, check out our Verizon 200 Brickyard predictions below.

Verizon 200 at the Brickyard Betting Odds

There are no surprises on the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard odds board. Chase Elliott is the favorite to win at +400. He’s been running so hot that the oddsmakers don’t have much another choice but to list Elliott at this price.

It was the same case with Kyle Larson last year. Larson kept running well, so the oddsmakers had to adjust. He was the favorite in most races this season, but they’ve reacted and Elliott is the most driver at this point. With how well he’s running, there isn’t another answer.

Larson is behind Elliott on the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard odds board.

He’s hanging around and being competitive. Larson posted his ninth top-5 performance last week at Pocono. He only has win, but Larson is going to the playoffs where you don’t want to count him out. In short, it’s going well for Hendrick this season.

Verizon 200 at the Brickyard Prediction

Daniel Suarez (+1100)

One of the most underrated drivers running quietly well recently has been Daniel Suarez. Suarez can’t be ignored for much longer after posting several consistent results consecutively.

Overall on the season, Suarez has five top-5 finishes and a win at Sonoma on the road track. His best results have come since that win.

Saurez’s team has had his car running fabulously since that win on June 12. Going into this weekend, he’s finished in the top-10 in four straight races, including P5, P6, P9, and P3 last weekend at Pocono.

Suarez has finished P20, P11, P18, P7 in four starts at the Brickyard.

Those results don’t jump off the page, but Suarez is running better than he ever has and the oddsmakers are giving him respect entering qualifying.

The oddsmakers like Suarez this week. He’s probably not attracting the most money from the public because he isn’t a flashy name. However, they have him at +1100, which is in the top-5 on the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard odds board.

He’s likely going to find another win before the end of the season. It could come at the Brickyard to make it two road course wins for Suarez in 2022.

Kyle Busch (+1600)

Kyle Busch hasn’t been at his best in road courses this season. This is not usual for him. Busch has traditionally been solid on the road.

He’s P29, P30, P28 in three road courses in 2022. However, prior to this season, Busch was one of the most consistent on the road.

Is Busch finally going to figure it out at the Brickyard on Sunday? Note that Busch finished P4, P20, P4, P3, P5 at five road courses going into this season.

Busch is eighth in the Cup Series standings, with six top-5 performances and a win on the dirt at Bristol.

He thought it was another top-5 effort last week. Joe Gibbs had the superior advantage on the track, with Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch going 1-2 at the checkered flag. Was the advantage because of Joe Gibbs Racing bending the rules, though?

DISQUALIFIED AT POCONO
Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch are both coming off a wave of emotions. Hamlin and Busch finished P1 and P2, but after post-race inspections on their cars, they were dropped to P36 and P35. Ouch.

That’s tough and it has been a tough season for Busch on the road. However, he’s getting some good value to win on the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard betting odds board, though. Busch can bounce back in this one.
