Kobalt 400 Free Picks
LAS VEGAS, NV (ATSConsultants) – The Kobalt 400 takes place later today for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Who are some drivers to consider in this event?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Kevin Harvick is the favorite to win this race, as he has 5/1 odds while Jimmie Johnson has 6/1 odds. Jeff Gordon, the pole sitter, has 13/2 odds. This race takes place today at 3:46PM ET from Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Kevin Harvick is one of the stronger plays, which is obvious. Harvick has finished in the top 5 of both races this year and looks like a strong contender to repeat as the series champ. Though he has never won at Las Vegas, his driver rating is 94.5, which is one of the better ratings in the field.
Brad Keselowski is another driver we like today. He will start 11th and has 8/1 odds to win. He is the defending champion of this race and he also finished third in 2013. With a slow start to the season, look for him to make a strong run today.
Paul Menard is a long shot to win, as he has 60/1 odds. He will start from the 24th position, but he has been strong in this race. He finished third a year ago, 10th in 2013 and seventh in 2012. He is just a little luck away from getting the win in Las Vegas. With such long odds, Menard could provide a big payday.
