Gander RV 400 Predictions
The 2019 NASCAR Monster Energy Series returns to Pennsylvania today for the running of the Gander RV 400. Here’s the drivers we like to contend for the win.
According to the latest oddsmakers, Kyle Busch is favored to win today. He has odds of +275 to win. Other short odds to win are Martin Truex Jr. (+450), Kevin Harvick (+600) and Brad Keselowski (+600). The Gander RV 400 is set to take place today at 3PM ET from Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pennsylvania.
54101 Kyle Busch +275
Busch is looking for the season sweep of Pocono after winning there a few months ago. He hasn’t been able to win since, but has finished runner-up a few times. Busch isn’t someone that likes to finish outside of victory lane for long stretches, so I expect him to remain as one of the top drivers to beat today. He is a three-time winner at this track in his career and I think he can make it four today.
53405 Denny Hamlin +1000
We picked Hamlin last week and he was edged at the finish line to place second. He is still seeking his first win in many weeks and could use another win to help his opening playoff positioning. This is a good race track for Hamlin. He is a four-time winner there with an average finish of 12.4 at the track and a driver rating of 104.1. He has the top rating of anyone in the field today. I like him to push Busch for the victory.
54310 Erik Jones +2500
Jones is the dark horse for the day. Though he has just one win in his Monster Energy Series career, I think he could grab another today. He has competed at this track five times in his career and has finished in the top 10 four times and the top 5 three times. His driver rating at the track is 102.1, which is amongst the best in the field. Jones really could use a win to lock up his spot in the postseason, so there are a lot of reasons to believe that today could be his day.
