NASCAR Monster Energy Series Predictions: Food City 500 4/23/17

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Brad Keselowski is favored to win this race, as he has 11/2 odds. Other short odds to win are Joey Logano, Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch, who each have 6/1 odds. The Food City 500 takes place today at 2PM ET from Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee.

Bet on the Food City 500

Kyle Busch is a three-time winner of this event and a five-time winner at Bristol. Busch has yet to grab a win, so I like him to make another strong push today at one of his best tracks. He has a driver rating of 100.5 at Bristol, which is second to only one other driver in the field.

Matt Kenseth is that other driver. Kenseth has 17/2 odds to win today’s race and that is a good number for him at this track. Kenseth is the 2015 champion of this race and a four-time winner at Bristol. His average finish here is 14.708 and his driver rating is 100.9. Kenseth really needs a good showing, as he has one top-5 finish this season. I like Kenseth to have a strong day today.

Kurt Busch is listed with 20/1 odds today, but I like those a lot for him as well. He is a four-time winner of this race and a five-time winner at Bristol overall. He comes to this track with an average finish of 14.8 over 32 races and a 93.1 driver rating. Busch already has a win this year, but he wants to really prove he can contend for the championship. To do that, he needs multiple wins, and this is a good place to get it.
