Matt Kenseth Daytona 500 Odds
DAYTONA BEACH, FL (TheSpread) – Matt Kenseth is already a two-time Daytona 500 winner. Will today see Kenseth win for the third time?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Kenseth is one of six drivers that are all favored to win Sunday’s race, as he has 10/1 odds to finish first. Kenseth was the 2009 and 2012 winner of the Daytona 500.
Kenseth will start from the third position today, his best starting position in a Daytona 500. He earned the third spot by winning Thursday’s Budweiser Duel. Kenseth typically doesn’t qualify well for this race, as he has just two top-5 starts in 15 Daytona 500 appearances.
Kenseth has been hot and cold in this race. He has the two wins, but no other top 5s and just three other top 10s. He has finished outside the top 30 in three of the last six years in this race. When it comes to overall performance at Daytona, Kenseth has an average finish of 17.5 at the track and a driver rating of 92.6, which ranks third amongst current drivers.
