Last year, Brad Keselowski was one of the favorites to win the Daytona 500 and ended up a disappointing 27th after a crash, as Kurt Busch took the checkered flag for the first time in his career.

This Sunday, Keselowski hopes to follow in Busch’s footsteps and win the 60th edition of the Great American Race at Daytona International Speedway as the +800 favorite (bet $100 to win $800) on the odds to win the 2018 Daytona 500 at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.

A first-time winner has placed first in each of the past three Daytona 500 races following a string of three straight years in which a driver won for the second time. That would seem to work in Keselowski’s favor this year, as no driver has repeated as champion since Sterling Marlin in 1995—with those odds obviously hurting Busch’s chances.

Regardless, Busch is +2500 to win the Daytona 500 in consecutive years, sitting behind a number of drivers, including his younger brother Kyle, who is tied with four others at +1200.
