Go Bowling at The Glen Predictions
The 2019 NASCAR Monster Energy Series returns to road course racing today with the winning of the Go Bowling at The Glen. 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. (+350), Denny Hamlin (+900) and Chase Elliott (+1000). The Go Bowling at The Glen is set to take place today at 3PM ET from Watkins Glen International in Watkins Glen, New York.
51101 Kyle Busch +275
Busch is a great driver at almost any track and road courses are no different. He is a two-time winner at Watkins Glen in his career with a driver rating of 111.8, which is best in the field. Busch was second in the other road course race this year and has placed in the top five in three straight road races. Expect him to be the man to beat today, as he hasn’t won in his last seven races.
51103 Chase Elliott +1000
Elliott is the defending champion of this race and he has been pretty strong in road races over his short career. He has a 110.6 driver rating at The Glen, which is amongst the best in today’s field. Elliott has been in a real funk as of late, finishing outside the top 10 in seven straight races. He needs a boost to get himself back on track heading toward the postseason. I think it comes in today’s race.
51112 Erik Jones +2500
Jones is our dark horse once again this week. We picked him last week and he finished second. We expect more good things today. Jones is in need of a win to secure his postseason chances and he has been very strong in road races thus far in his career. In five races between Sonoma and Watkins Glen, he has finished in the top 10 in four of them and in the top five in one. His driver rating of 101.8 at this course is in the top 5 for the field.
