Overton's 301 Predictions
The 2017 NASCAR Monster Energy Series holds its next race today, the Overton’s 301. Here are some drivers we like to contend for the win today.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Martin Truex Jr. is now favored to win, as he has +325 odds. Other short odds to win are Kyle Busch (+400) and Kevin Harvick (+500). The Overton’s 301 takes place today at 3PM ET from New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire.
Kyle Busch is a two-time winner of this race and he comes into this race needing a win. Busch is too talented a driver not to pick up a victory at some point. This could be the place, as he has a 98.1 driver rating at New Hampshire and an average finish of 13.8. He has finished in the top 5 in two of the last three races. I think he finally breaks through with that win today.
Denny Hamlin is in need of a win as well coming into today and he has +850 odds to win. He won this race back in 2011 and is a two-time winner at New Hampshire. Hamlin has great numbers at this track, as he has an average finish of 10.4 and a driver rating of 102.7. Hamlin has finished in the top five in three of his last four races, so he has been running strong. Look for him to be near the pack once again.
Chase Elliott has +1200 odds to win today. Also in need of a win, Elliott has been brewing on that first NASCAR win lately. He has finished in the top 5 in three of his last five races, including a runner-up finish in Michigan. Elliott has only been in two races at New Hampshire in his career, but he has one of the better driver ratings in today’s field. His rating of 92.9 is seventh-best of any driver competing. Look for Elliott to make a run at the victory today.
