Quaker State 400 Free Picks
SPARTA, KY (ATSConsultants) – The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series competes under the lights tonight for the Quaker State 400. Here are some drivers we like in tonight’s race.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Kevin Harvick and Brad Keselowski are now co-favorites with 6/1 odds while Jimmie Johnson and Joey Logano each have 7/1 odds to win. The Quaker State 400 is taking place tonight at 7:45PM ET from Kentucky Speedway.
Kevin Harvick is a play we like most weeks and today is no different. He only qualified 15th, but he has been the most consistent driver all season, which is shown by being 63 points better than the field this season. He has an average finish of 11th at this track and a driver rating of 95.2. Though he has yet to win in four races, he’s driving even better now than previous attempts.
Kyle Busch has 9/1 odds to win today and we like his chances. Busch will start ninth and, despite having a win already, he needs to crack the top 30 in points, which he is 128 points from doing. So, that means Busch needs strong performances over the next 10 weeks. His average finish at Kentucky is 11.5 in four races and his driver rating is 89.4. Due to his desperate situation, we think Busch will be a strong contender today.
Kasey Kahne has 20/1 odds to win today and he starts in 19th position for the race. He is looking for his first win of the year, but is currently 11th in the points and in need of a strong performance tonight. His average finish at Kentucky is 8.5 and his driver rating is 98.9, which ranks fifth for tonight’s field. Look for Kahne to be in the mix at the end.
