5-hour ENERGY 301 Picks
LOUDON, NH (ATSConsultants) – The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series competes in the 5-hour ENERGY 301 this afternoon. Which drivers should you wager on for today’s race?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Brad Keselowski is the current favorite to win this race, as he has 4/1 odds. Other short odds to win are Kevin Harvick (11/2) and Joey Logano (6/1). The 5-hour ENERGY 301 takes place today at 1:45PM ET from New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Denny Hamlin has 7/1 odds to win today’s race and he will start from the fifth position today. He is coming off back-to-back third-place finishes over the last two weeks and now is at a track where he is a two-time winner. Hamlin has a driver rating of 103.2 at New Hampshire and we think it will be even stronger after today.
It isn’t often you can find Jimmie Johnson with 8/1, but that is the case today and we think you should jump on that. He is starting seventh and already has a series-best four wins on the year. New Hampshire is another strong track for him as well, as he has won here three times with an average finish of 10.3 and a driver rating of 102.1. Don’t be surprised if Johnson gets his fifth win of 2015 today.
Kyle Larson is a bit of a dark horse today. He has 25/1 odds to win, but he finished third in this race last year, so it is one of his stronger tracks. He is coming off a pair of bad outings due to wrecks and needs a win to put himself in contention for the title. Look for him to put everything into this race and contend for his first Sprint Cup win.
