Daytona 500 2013 odds: Tony Stewart, Kevin Harvick favorites for checkered flag

Kevin Liles-USA TODAY Sports

Tony Stewart and Kevin Harvick are getting the best odds on a victory at Daytona, but it's crowded at the top.

A nasty wreck is making headlines at Daytona, but Sunday will see the running of the Daytona 500, same as usual. The latest odds for the contest have Tony Stewart as the favorite, with an 8-1 line on a win by No. 14. Kevin Harvick is just behind him as a favorite, with odds of 17-2 on a victory.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. (10-1), Jeff Gordon (10-1) and Kyle Busch (21-2) round out the top-five drivers oddsmakers see as having a chance at victory. Of the five, Earnhardt Jr., Gordon and Harvick all have wins in the Daytona 500, with Harvick's 2007 victory being the most recent. A victory by Gordon would tie him with Cale Yarborough for four career victories, good for second on the list behind Richard Petty, who has seven.

Danica Patrick, who became the first woman to win pole position, is getting odds of 15-1 on a win, not far behind the favorites.
