Sweeps week? Harvick heavy favorite for Darlington II

Kevin Harvick cruised to his 50th career win at Darlington on Sunday and gets another chance to cash in Wednesday night.

Harvick is the heavy favorite -- +350 at DraftKings -- to win the Toyota 500 on Wednesday as NASCAR goes back-to-back in Monster Cup Series races at Darlington Raceway. Harvick was +600 to win Sunday's race, The Real Heroes 400, at the same South Carolina track.

Sunday's second-place finisher Alex Bowman remains a bargain at +900, even with Chase Elliott and Joey Logano.

Kyle Busch is second to Harvick at DraftKings (+700), followed by Brad Keselowski (+750), Denny Hamlin (+800) and Martin Truex Jr. (+850).

Busch had finished in the top 11 at Darlington in his past 10 runs at The Lady in Black before he ended 26th on Sunday after failing inspection.

Kurt Busch was third Sunday and is +1400 for the Toyota 500.

One other underdog worth considering Wednesday is Jimmie Johnson (+2500).

The graybeard in his final NASCAR season before planned retirement has three career wins at this track and entered Sunday with 21 starts. His average finish is 12.1 before a crash took him out of the running for another win Sunday. Johnson was in line to capture the first stage, but he clipped Chris Buescher's car on the last lap of the stage and slid out of control. That put him out of the race and he finished 38th.
