There are only five races left in the 2022 NASCAR season, and Chase Elliott has all of a sudden separated himself from the pack in the Series Cup standings.
He has a second place finish sandwiched in-between two wins over his last three races, which has resulted in him building a 105-point lead over the second place driver, Ross Chastain.
The circuit now heads to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard. This is only the second year that his race has been part of the schedule. It's a 200-mile race that takes place on combined road course.
A.J. Allmendinger won the inaugural race last year.
Here are the top 10 odds via WynnBET Sportsbook to win this Sunday's race.

NASCAR Picks: Best Bet for the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard
Not only is Chase Elliott on fire lately, but he has dominated road courses throughout his career. This is the rare case where I recommend taking the betting favorite in a NASCAR race.
Elliott has seven career road race wins, third most all time and first amongst all active drivers. Not only that, but he's done it at several tracks, spreading those wins across five different events.
He even finished strong at this race last year, missing the podium by only one spot. With how he's been driving lately, he's the obvious bet to make to win the second edition of this race.
PICK: Chase Elliott +400
