Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 Free Picks
Drivers are set to compete in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 today. Here are some drivers we think can contend for the win.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Kevin Harvick is the favorite to win this weekend, as he has 4/1 odds. Other short odds to get the victory are Joey Logano (11/2), Jimmie Johnson (13/2) and Kyle Busch (7/1). The Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 takes place on Sunday, Feb. 28 at 1:16 PM ET from Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia.
Kevin Harvick is a 4/1 favorite for good reason. He has a pretty solid driver rating of 92.8 at Atlanta with one win under his belt. Harvick was the most consistent driver last season and the champion in 2014. Starting sixth, he should find himself vying for the win today.
Jimmie Johnson starts from 19th position today, but he will work his way up the field quickly. Johnson has four wins at Atlanta and a series-best driver rating of 106.2 at this track. It would be hard to see Johnson not being one of the top 5. He arguably should be the favorite given his strong numbers at this track.
Carl Edwards has 10/1 odds to win and also has a strong history at Atlanta. He starts seventh today and is a three-time winner at this track with a driver rating of 100.4, which is second only to Jimmie Johnson. Edwards know this is a track he can grab a win at and secure an early Chase spot, so he will push hard to get to the front.
