Las Vegas odds: Stewart-Haas Racing drivers jump up board
Driver chances to win Sunday’s Dragon Power NASCAR Cup Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway have jumped considerably all weekend for many drivers — most notably, three of Stewart-Haas Racing’s four motorists have leapt toward the top of the board.

One of the most notable:
??? Aric Almirola, who won his first Busch Pole Award opened at 25-1 odds. He enters Sunday a great value for people who plunked down a bet on him before the weekend started. Nine drivers are listed at 10-1 or greater.
??? Daniel Suarez showed plenty of speed in practice and qualifying in the No. 41 Ford, along with his lineup reflects that. Suarez is among the greatest movers and sits at 25-1.
??? Clint Bowyer, the third SHR driver on the list, led both practice sessions and appeared to be the favorite to win the Busch Pole. He qualified third, however. He’s gone from 16-1 odds to 8-1, the third greatest in the field behind Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch.
??? Ricky Stenhouse Jr., meanwhile, jumped from 66-1 chances to 20-1 after his No. 17 Roush Fenway Ford Mustang delivered a P2 qualifying position.
??? Although the odd didn’t move significantly, it is well worth noting that Kevin Harvick — who has mastered at Atlanta the last five years — watched his odds as race favored go from 4.5-1 to 6-1 after his slow Friday.
