Pocono Mountains 150 Picks
The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series kicks off a racing weekend at Pocono Raceway with the Pocono Mountains 150 this afternoon. Here are our picks for the race.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, William Byron is the favorite to win this race, as he has 5/2 odds. Other short odds to win are Matt Crafton (5/1), Johnny Sauter (6/1) and Timothy Peters (6/1). The Pocono Mountains 150 takes place today at 1:21PM ET from Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pennsylvania.
William Byron has a promising young career and his 2016 performance has been a clear example of that. He has won four times this year, his rookie campaign. He also has a third-place finish. He knows how to get to the front, and with this race primarily veteran truck competitors, look for him to push for another win.
Johnny Sauter is a smart bet for today’s race as well. He finished second at this track in 2014 and was sixth a year ago. He also holds a win in 2016 and five other top-5 finishes. He should be able to make a charge for today’s win.
Tyler Reddick has 8/1 odds to win today, but we think he can be a sleeper. Reddick finished third in this race last year, and though he doesn’t have a win in 2016, he has been showing improvement. Reddick has finished in the top 5 in four of his last six races, so he knows how to get to the front of the pack. Now he just needs to make a few good moves to get the win.
