Auto Club 400 Predictions
The NASCAR Monster Energy Series has another big race today, the Auto Club 400? Here’s our picks for Sunday’s race.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch are co-favorites to win, as each has 13/2 odds. Other short odds to prevail are Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano, who each have 7/1 odds. The Auto Club 400 takes place on Sunday at 3:30PM ET from Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California.
Kyle Busch could use a win today after being in the news for his fight with Joey Logano. Busch is coming to a track that he has done very well at. He has three wins at California with an average finish of 10.176 and a driver rating of 109.0. Busch should be plenty motivated to make a push for the win today and I think he will get it.
Jimmie Johnson has been trending toward a win, one he could certainly use. Johnson has 15/2 odds to win today, but he has improved his finish in each of the four races, working up to ninth last week. Johnson is a six-time winner at this track with an average finish of 6.111. His driver rating here is 119.7, which is by far the best in the series. Look for Johnson to make a strong run today.
Denny Hamlin has just 20/1 odds today and I like his long odds at this track. While Hamlin has never won at California, he has a respectable driver rating of 92.3. That ranks in the top 10 of today’s field. Hamlin also has back-to-back top-10 finishes, so look for him to be in the mix once again today and possibly make a surge to the win.
