2024 Grant Park 165 NASCAR Odds & Prediction

By Hank Blaine

One of NASCAR’s most exciting races on their schedule takes place on Sunday when Denny Hamlin, Christopher Bell, Chase Elliott, William Byron, and the rest head to Illinois for the annual Chicago Street Race. The Grant Park 165 is the unique event on NASCAR’s schedule. It’s so unique that Shane van Gisbergen, the 2023 Chicago Street Race winner, is the opening odds favorite. Van Gisbergen drives in a single NASCAR Cup race, and that’s the Chicago Street Race. Will van Gisbergen make it back-to-back? See below for NASCAR odds, analysis, and picks for the 2024 Grant Park 165.

Top Choice to Win the 2024 Grant Park 165

The top pick drives in the Xfinity Series, which is why NASCAR fans may not recognize his name. Shane van Gisbergen is the top choice to get it done on Sunday, though, because the Grant Park 165 is a Chicago Street Race.

The twists and turns favors a driver like van Gisbergen. NASCAR races are all about saving fuel and tires and keeping the car going for 400 laps or miles. But a street race requires a different approach, one that van Gisbergen and his crew worked to perfection in 2023. Lightning strikes twice on Sunday when van Gisbergen, no matter his starting position, crosses the finish line first in Chicago for a second straight season.

Second Choice to Win the 2024 Grant Park 165

In past NASCAR Seasons, this is the time of the year when Larson steps on the gas pedal. The co-second choice to grab the checkered flag scored a fourth place finish at New Hampshire and an eighth at Nashville.

Larson won the pole in Chicago. Like Byron, Kyle Larson might be due for a win. The odds difference between Larson and teammate Byron is too much to side with Kyle, though. But if you don’t mind the low odds, pull the trigger.

Chase is due for an impressive performance. Back if you believe.

Third Choice to Win the 2024 Grant Park 165

A.J. Allmendinger didn’t have a fantastic 2023 Grant Park, finishing seventeenth. Still, he’s got street race credentials and should handle the car over the course’s twists and turns on Sunday.

Not only that, but A.J. could be siding up to a fantastic performance after recent finishes. In New Hampshire, Allmendinger finished eleventh. Then last week, he scored a seventh place finish. A.J. is worth a look if you want a price on a driver that can get it done.

Top Underdog to Win the 2024 Grant Park 165

Kyle Busch hasn’t had a great 2024. Kyle has zero victories. Busch has won a pole, though, and has scored 5 top 10 finishes and 2 top 5 finishes.

In addition, we must throw out the last race because he got into an accident. At the 2023 Grant Park, Kyle Busch crossed the line fifth. With some luck, he can take the checkered flag in this year’s Chicago Street Race, which is why Kyle is the top underdog play.
