Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 Picks
The NASCAR Monster Energy Series gets back into swing today with the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500. Here’s our picks for today’s race.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Kevin Harvick is favored to win with 11/2 odds. Other short odds to win are Jimmie Johnson (6/1), Kyle Busch (6/1) and Brad Keselowski (15/2). The Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 takes place on Sunday from Atlanta Motor Speedway at 2:46PM ET.
Jimmie Johnson is hard to ignore at this track. He is a five-time winner here and his driver rating of 107.1 is best in the field today by a long shot. His average finish at the track is also 9.611. After a poor showing last weekend in Daytona, Johnson should be ready for a big day today.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. is listed with 12/1 odds to win today. He is coming off a bad performance last week as well and moving to a track where he already has a win. His driver rating at this track is 95.1, which is in the top 10 in the field. His average finish is also just 11.22, so he consistently puts up a top performance.
Denny Hamlin has 15/1 odds today, but I like those odds for a driver of his caliber. Hamlin already owns a win here and his driver rating there is 95.5, which ranks fourth-best in today’s field. His average finish is only 18.00, but Hamlin is capable of winning here and should make a push with the top contenders.
