New Hampshire 301 Picks
How will the New Hampshire 301 play out today? Here’s our picks for Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch are co-favorites to win this race, as each has been given 5/1 odds. Other short odds to win are Brad Keselowski (6/1), while Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth each have 7/1 odds. The New Hampshire 301 takes place today at 1:45PM ET from New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Brad Keselowski is on a hot streak, winning the last two races, and New Hampshire is another track he has done quite well at. He has one win and five top-5 finishes in 13 appearances, while his driver rating there is 99.5. Winning three straight is no small task, but Keselowski is in the zone right now.
Jimmie Johnson isn’t getting much credit with his opening 8/1 odds. He is a three-time winner at this track and has an impressive 101.1 driver rating at this track. Johnson has finished outside the top 10 in five straight races, but we know that can’t continue. Look for him to bounce back this week.
Kasey Kahne is a 50/1 longshot for this race, but there is reason to give him a second look. Kahne is a former winner at New Hampshire as well, and his driver rating of 91.0 at this track ranks in the top 10 for the field. He currently sits in 17th in the point standings and needs some strong runs, or a win, to get into the postseason. He has finished in the top 10 in two of his last five starts, so there is reason to believe he can have a strong run today.
