NASCAR at Phoenix: Odds, prediction, sleepers, drivers to watch for TicketGuardian 500

Kevin Harvick is off to a slower start than last year, but that doesn’t in any manner harm how dangerous he’ll probably be at ISM Raceway in Phoenix on Sunday for the TicketGuardian 500.

Harvick has two career wins in the one-mile monitor and ends in the top 10 in 65.6 percent of his races there. He is definitely the favorite.

However Kyle Busch cannot be underestimated with seven 7s in his past seven races and two career wins in Phoenix. He’s finished in six of the seven attempts there in the top 4.

This race will be a duel between the two and also whoever gets out in front at the onset of the third phase will be the absolute favorite. This time we’re going to choose Busch to come out the victor, as he might have picked up the win had it not been for a speeding penalty on pit road.

The TicketGuardian 500 can be seen Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET on FOX.
