Pennsylvania 400 Picks
The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series holds the Pennsylvania 400 later today. Here is a look at some drivers we like to contend for the win.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Martin Truex Jr. is now a 4/1 favorite. Other short odds to win are Kyle Busch (6/1), Carl Edwards (15/2) and Kevin Harvick (15/2). The Pennsylvania 400 takes place on Sunday at 1:48PM ET from Pocono Raceway.
Denny Hamlin has 10/1 odds to win today. He has great numbers at Pocono, winning four times in 21 races. He has a driver rating of 106.0 at this track and an average finish of 12.4. Look for him to continue his strong performances at this track.
Jimmie Johnson has 12/1 odds today. He also has very solid numbers at Pocono. In 29 races, he has three wins with an average finish of 10.4. His driver rating of 106.3 is second-best in the field for any driver with at least 10 races at this track. Johnson should be able to make a push for the win today.
Ryan Newman is a real long shot today. He comes into the race with 30/1 odds. However, there is reason to believe this could be a track that works out for him. He is a former Pocono winner and his average finish here is 12.3. His driver rating is 92.3, which ranks 9th in today’s field overall. Newman is coming off a 31st-place finish last week. Each time he has finished outside the top 20, he has bounced back the following week with at least a top-15 showing.
