Advance Auto Parts Clash Predictions
The 2019 NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series gets its season started today when it holds its annual Advance Auto Parts Clash today at 3PM ET. Here’s the drivers we like to contend for the win.
This race is an exhibition that includes three segments as part of determining the winner. Drivers will compete in 75 laps in total with mandator pit stops along the way. According to the latest oddsmakers, both Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano are favored to win, as each has 7/1 odds. Other short odds to win are Kevin Harvick (8/1), Chase Elliott (10/1) and Denny Hamlin (10/1). The Advance Auto Parts Clash takes place today at 3PM ET from Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. The race airs live on FS1.
51052 Kevin Harvick 8/1
Harvick is a three-time winner of this event. He hasn’t won since 2013, but he still has consistently been in the mix for most races. Harvick has finished in the top five of this race in seven of the 14 years he has competed and has been in the top 10 in 10 of the 14 appearances. Harvick has been one of the top drivers in the series over recent years and he should continue to be one of the top guys this season. I think he starts the year off well today.
51055 Denny Hamlin 10/1
Hamlin has been pretty steady at this event, winning the event three times in his career. His last victory came in 2016. His average finish in this event is 9.0, while his driver rating is 9.0. He has a total of five top-5 finishes over 13 appearances in this event. Hamlin should find himself near the front of the pack today as well.
51063 Kyle Larson 25/1
Larson usually doesn’t have long odds in races, so I think he brings a lot of value into today’s race. Larson has competed in this race the last four years and he has finished in the top 5 in two of them and in the top 10 in three of them. Larson’s average finish in this race is 8.3. Larson has been a top-10 driver in the series the last three years and I think he should be in the mix to win today. He could provide a nice payout for you.
