According to oddsmakers at, Dale Earnhardt Jr. is favored to win the race, as he has 7/1 odds, while Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson each have 8/1. The Daytona 500 takes place today at 1:30PM ET from Daytona International Speedway.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. is the favorite for a reason. He is the defending champion of the race and a two-time winner with a handful of second-place finishes. He has looked strong all week, winning Thursday’s duel and you have to believe he will be near the front at the end.

Denny Hamlin is another driver to consider. He has 14/1 odds and looking for his first Daytona 500 victory.
