Coca-Cola 600 Predictions
The Coca-Cola 600 is set to take place later tonight. Here are three drivers we like to contend for the win in NASCAR’s longest race.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Kevin Harvick and Kyle Larson are now co-favorites with 5/1 odds while Martin Truex Jr. is listed with 11/2 odds to win tonight. The Coca-Cola 600 takes place today at 6PM ET from Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina.
Kyle Busch has yet to get a win at Charlotte in his career, but that is pretty surprising considering how well he has driven there. He comes into today’s race with 6/1 odds and he has a driver rating of 104.8 at Charlotte, which is second in the field. Busch is off to a somewhat slow start this year, but he has finished in the top 5 in his last two races. I think he can grab his first win of the year tonight.
Jimmie Johnson has 8/1 odds to win tonight, which is fitting considering he is an 8-time winner at this track. He also is a four-time winner of this very event. Johnson has a driver rating of 110.6 at Charlotte, which is best of anyone in this field. The seven-time series champion has a pair of wins already this year and I think he can make it three tonight. This is clearly a track he is comfortable at and he has the patience to handle the long battle.
If you are looking for a real long shot, Kasey Kahne is your man. He has 45/1 odds to win tonight, but he is a three-time winner of the Coca-Cola 600. In a career that hasn’t featured a lot of high points, Charlotte has been a track of great success for Kahne. He has a driver rating of 95.1 at the track and an average finish of 12.8. A win would do wonders for Kahne, so look for him to be aggressive today.
