Bass Pro Shops Night Race top drivers and best bets

After the first two postseason races went to playoff drivers, five of the top six favorites for the win at Bristol — according to BetMGM — are in the playoffs. Larson, who won the event in 2021, is the favorite at 5 ½-to-1, while no other driver has odds better than 8-to-1. Larson’s Hendrick Motorsports teammate Chase Elliott is the only non-playoff driver among the favorites, likely due to him having the best average Bristol starting position (7.9) and finish (12.3) of anyone in the field.

Best odds to win
• Kyle Larson +550
• Brad Keselowski +800
• Denny Hamlin +825
• Christopher Bell +900
• William Byron +900
• Chase Elliott +900

Yahoo Sports’ Nick Bromberg wrote earlier in the week on the gambling outlook and identified defending series champion Joey Logano as a good mid-tier option as his +1700 moneyline isn’t in line with his career performance at Bristol (two wins and 10 top-10 finishes). If you like living dangerously, Bromberg suggests taking a flier on Daniel Suárez — who has two top 10s at the track — at 80-to-1.

Bass Pro Shops Night Race weather

The forecast calls for high temperatures in the mid-70s during the day, cooling into the 60s for the race Saturday night. That shouldn’t accelerate the normally high tire degradation Bristol produces — especially on the right sides earlier in the race before the track is rubbered in — meaning teams likely won’t be looking to extend runs beyond a normal pit window.
