Sprint Unlimited Free Picks
DAYTONA BEACH, FL (TheSpread) – NASCAR racing returns tonight when the top drivers in the game compete in the Sprint Unlimited. Here are some drivers to consider for the race.
The Sprint Unlimited is an exhibition race held at Daytona International Speedway. It is divided into three segments of 30 laps, 25 laps and then a 20-lap finish. A team is required to take a mandatory pit stop after the second segment. The race takes place tonight at 8 p.m. on FOX.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kevin Harvick are the current co-favorites, as each has been given 9/1 odds to win. There are eight other drivers that currently have 12/1 odds.
Fresh off a Sprint Cup championship, Kevin Harvick is a strong play tonight. He has won this event three times in the last six years and has finished in the top five of this race six different times.
Brad Keselowski always has the eyes on him, but he is a strong play tonight. He has finished in the top 4 of his previous two Sprint Unlimiteds. He has 12/1 odds to win tonight.
Jeff Gordon hasn’t necessarily been great in this event, finishing outside the top 10 the last three years, but he is the sentimental pick. With this being his final full season, look for Gordon to be giving it all he has this year, starting tonight. He has 12/1 odds as well.
