LONG POND, PA (ATS CONSULTANTS) – The NASCAR Sprint Cup series competes in the GoBowling.com 400. Here are some drivers to consider for this race.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Brad Keselowski is the favorite to win, as he has 5/1 odds while Kevin Harvick has 6/1 odds and Jeff Gordon comes in with 7/1 odds.
Here are the drivers we like:
Gordon comes into this race starting fifth. He is the points leader for the season and coming off a win last week. Along with that, Gordon is a six-time winner at Pocono Raceway with an average finish of 10.0 and a 101.8 driver rating at the track. Gordon has been the picture of consistency all year and seems primed to contend for the Sprint Cup title. We feel good about sticking with him this week.
Despite suffering a penalty this week, it doesn’t take away from the fact that Hamlin has been running well the last month. He has three straight top 10s and he placed fourth at this track earlier this year. He also has four career wins at Pocono to go with an average finish of 12.1, and a series-best driver rating of 109.0. If there was ever a place to get Hamlin back on track, it is Pocono.
Larson is on the pole for this race, so clearly he knows how to drive fast on the track. The key for him will be to stay out of trouble. He has back-to-back top 7 finishes and has shown the ability to win races without completing the job quite yet. He finished fifth on this track earlier this year, with was one of his best showings of 2014. Look for him to build on that Sunday and possibly earn his first win.
