Las Vegas oddsmakers Jay Rood (MGM Mirage) and Fred Crespi (The Palms Hotel & Casino) agree: Larry Dixon (Top Fuel Dragster), Matt Hagan (Funny Car) and Greg Anderson (Pro Stock) are the favorites for this weekend’s NHRA Las Vegas Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. All three just happen to be the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series points leaders in their classes.

Tony Schumacher, the perennial Top Fuel Dragster favorite, this time is listed second at 4/1. Fourteen-time NHRA Funny Car champion John Force was given the same odds as Hagan: 5/2. Defending Pro Stock champion Mike Edwards is on the board at 4/1.
