FireKeepers Casino 400 Predictions
The NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series holds its first of two races at Michigan today, with the running of the FireKeepers Casino 400. Here are three drivers we like to contend for the win.
According to the latest oddsmakers, Kevin Harvick is the favorite to win this race, as he has +250 odds to win. Other short odds to win are Kyle Busch (+350), Martin Truex Jr. (+400) and Kyle Larson (+550). The FireKeepers Casino 400 takes place Sunday, June 10 from Michigan International Speedway. The race will air on FOX at 2PM ET.
6127 Kyle Larson +550
Larson loves Michigan International Speedway. Over just eight appearances at MIS in his career, Larson has three victories and five top-10 finishes. His average finish at this track is 10.9, while his driver rating is 101.1. As the defending champion of this very race, I like Larson to repeat. He is seeking his first win of 2018 and should be primed to get it this afternoon.
6118 Joey Logano +1400
Michigan has been very good to Logano as well. He is a two-time winner at this track with an average finish of 12.9 and a driver rating of 96.3. Logano has been pretty consistent this year, sitting third in the point standings right now. He has finished in the top 10 in all but three races in 2018. That includes one victory. I think Logano is a great option for his second win of the year on Sunday. He has finished in the top 5 of this race the last three years.
6106 Chase Elliott +1800
Elliott has only driven on this track four times, but he has finished in the top 10 all four times and in the top 5 three times. His average finish over the four races is 3.5, while his driver rating is 113.9. Those rank first in today’s field. Elliott needs something to really get his season going. He has finished 12th or better in six straight races, but could use a victory today to make his postseason plans.
