NASCAR at the Brickyard Picks
NASCAR takes on Indy this afternoon for the running of the Combat Wounded Coalition 400. Here are three drivers we like to contend for the win.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Kyle Busch is favored to win this race, as he has +325 odds. Other short odds to win are Jimmie Johnson (+625), Carl Edwards (+725) and Kevin Harvick +750). The Combat Wounded Coalition 400 takes place on Sunday at 3:19PM ET from Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Kyle Busch is coming off a win in the Xfinity Series race at the Brickyard on Saturday and he also owns a Sprint Cup win at this track. His average finish at Indy is 9.7, which is second-best in the field and his driver rating of 101.5 ranks third in today’s field. Look for Busch to make a solid run at the win today.
Jimmie Johnson wins at Indy. He is a four-time winner at the Brickyard, which is a very impressive feat. He also has the top driver rating of today’s drivers at 106.5. Johnson knows how to navigate this track and get to the front and it won’t be a surprise to see him do it again today.
Jeff Gordon is making his return to driving as he replaces the injured Dale Earnhardt Jr. Gordon is being given 20/1 odds today, but it might be worth a look. He won this race just two years ago and finished in the top 5 11 other times. In total, Gordon has won five times at the Brickyard.
