NASCAR at Kansas odds, matchups, props: Kyle Busch is the favorite to win Saturday's Digital Ally 400

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup series heads to Kansas Speedway on Saturday night for a race under the lights. It's a short week for the circuit, as the Dover race was run on Monday as opposed to Sunday due to weather delays. 

Normally, the Cup Series runs on Sundays however traditionally, NASCAR avoids racing on family holidays hence Saturday's night race is a day early in observance of Mother's Day. 

Martin Truex Jr. will look to earn his third win of the season after taking the checkered flag at the Monster Mile earlier this week. Truex has two career wins at Kansas, however is not the favorite to win. That honor again goes to his teammate at Joe Gibbs Racing, Kyle Busch, who has only one win at the track. Busch did finish the October race at Kansas second. 

Here's a look at how the field stacks up for Saturday with odds courtesy of Westgate Superbook.

In addition to betting a driver straight up to win a race, you can also bet head to head matchups. Oddsmakers take drivers with similar stature and history at a particular track and set the lines individually. 

This allows bettors to have more variety in wagering on the sport in that they have a 50/50 shot as opposed to a 1/40 chance off the bat. You will notice some drivers are "juiced" because Vegas believes they have a better chance of winning that particular matchup.

Here's a look at the matchups for this weekend at Kansas.

If you're looking for even more value, perhaps you should look at NASCAR props. Instead of putting drivers head to head in individual matchups, oddsmakers allow you to pick one of four drivers in a particular group in order to earn even more of a return.

For example, if you like Kyle Busch to win the race, you're going to want to bet him to win Group A on Saturday. This will give you a +195 return. 

Here's a look at the group matchups for this weekend.
