STP 500 Free Picks
The STP 500 is set to take place later today. Here is a look at some drivers we like to contend for the win in this NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Jimmie Johnson and Kyle Busch are co-favorites at 9/2 to win, while Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano each have 11/2 odds. The STP 500 takes place today from Martinsville Speedway at 1:13PM ET.
Jimmie Johnson is someone you can’t avoid today. He already has two wins this season and now is at a track where he has eight wins in his career. His driver rating (118.4) and average finish (6.9) at Martinsville are by far the best in the field. He only qualified 24th, but he will definitely be a force at the end today.
Denny Hamlin is another driver whose number are too strong to ignore. He has five wins in his career at Martinsville with an average finish of 8.0 and a driver rating of 110.6. He is going to start in eighth position today and should be battling for the win all day near the front of the pack.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. has 15/1 odds today, but he also has good numbers at this track, which you maybe wouldn’t expect. He has one win to his credit at Martinsville with an average finish of 12.9 and a driver rating of 99.4. Junior is seeking his first win of the year, so he can certainly use it today. Look for him to be a dark horse to come out on top.
