FireKeepers Casino 400 Predictions
The 2019 NASCAR Monster Energy Series holds its first of two races in Michigan today with the running of the FireKeepers Casino 400. Here’s some drivers we like to contend for the win.
According to the latest oddsmakers, Kyle Busch is the favorite today with +275 odds. Other short odds to win are Kevin Harvick (+475), Martin Truex Jr. (+600) and Brad Keselowski (+600). The FireKeepers Casino 400 is set to take place today at 2PM ET from Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan.
52104 Brad Keselowski +600
NASCAR is in Keselowski’s home state this weekend and he has been very vocal about his desire to win at MIS in his career. He has yet to do so, but has an 11.9 average finish at the track and a 96.1 driver rating there. This year, Keselowski already has three wins and three other top-3 finishes. I expect him to bring his best today, as his drive to win here is stronger than any other driver’s. Today could be his day to check another goal off his career list.
52106 Joey Logano +1000
Logano has a lot of value today at 10/1. He is a two-time winner at MIS over his career with a 12.5 average finish at the track and a 96.3 driver rating there. Logano has been consistent in his ability to stay near the front this year, as he has 10 top-10 finishes. However, he has just one win. I think he knows the importance of racking up the wins and today he comes to a track that has been very good to him. Look for Logano to be a top contender this afternoon.
52112 Kurt Busch +3300
Busch is a great longshot option if you are really looking to land a big payday today. At 33/1, Busch definitely has a lot of value. Busch is a two-time winner of this race, last taking the victory in 2015. Over his career, Busch has three wins at MIS with a driver rating of 91.0 at the track. Busch has shown he still has plenty of competitiveness in him this year as part of Chip Ganassi Racing, as he has three top-5 finishes and eight top-10 finishes. Given this track has been one of his stronger ones, I am surprised to see his odds so long.
