Las Vegas odds: Stewart-Haas Racing drivers jump up board

Driver odds to win Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway have jumped substantially all weekend for several drivers — most notably, three of Stewart-Haas Racing’s four motorists have leapt toward the surface of the board.

This year’s first race on an intermediate course includes a brand-new rules bundle — learn more about that here and with it, plenty of learnings. Aric Almirola and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will start 1-2 Sunday, and unusual exercise rates led to chances movement.

Among the most noteworthy:

??? Aric Almirola, who won his first Busch Pole Award opened at 25-1 odds. He enters Sunday a terrific value. Nine drivers are recorded at 10-1 or better.

??? Daniel Suarez showed lots of speed in practice and qualifying in the No. 41 Ford, and his line reflects that. Suarez is one of the movers and sits in 25-1.

??? Clint Bowyer, the next SHR driver on the list, directed both practice sessions and seemed to be the favorite to win the Busch Pole. He qualified third, though. He’s gone out of 16-1 chances to 8-1, the third highest in the field behind Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch.

??? Ricky Stenhouse Jr., meanwhile, jumped from 66-1 odds to 20-1 after his No. 17 Roush Fenway Ford Mustang delivered a P2 qualifying position.

??? Though the strange did not go significantly, it’s well worth noting that Kevin Harvick — that has dominated at Atlanta the last five years — saw his odds as race favored move from 4.5-1 to 6-1 after his slow Friday.
