Auto Club 400 Predictions
The NASCAR Monster Energy Series competes in California this afternoon for the Auto Club 400 at 3:30PM ET. Here’s some drivers we think should contend for the victory.
According to the latest oddsmakers, Kyle Busch is favored to win, as he is listed with 7/2 odds. Other short odds to win are Brad Keselowski (5/1), Kevin Harvick (6/1) and Kyle Larson (7/1). The Auto Club 400 is set to take place today at 3:30PM ET from Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California.
55016 Kyle Busch 7/2
Busch is the favorite for good reason. He is a two-time winner of this event and a three-time winner in California. His driver rating at the track is 109.6, while his average finish there is 10.4 over 20 races. Busch has been rolling this season. He is coming off a win last weekend and has finished in the top 3 in three of the four races this year. I like Busch to continue his strong season today.
55017 Martin Truex Jr. 8/1
Truex Jr. is the defending champion of this race and comes into the weekend with some pretty solid odds. While his driver rating at California is just 85.3, he has placed in the top 4 of this race the last two years. Truex is performance well thus far in 2019, as he has finished runner-up in two of the four races. I think today could be the day that he secures his first win of the season.
55008 Chase Elliott 25/1
Elliott has been pretty steady at California over his short career. In three races at the track, Elliott has an average finish of 10.7 and his driver rating there is 95.2. Elliott has been okay so far this year, finishing inside the top 20 in all four races. Elliott could use something to really spark his season. With 25/1 odds, there is a lot of value in betting on him today, as this is one of his better tracks in terms of performance consistency.
