Bass Pro Shops Night Race Picks
The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drives under the lights tonight for the Bass Pro Shops Night Race. Here are some drivers we like to contend for the win.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Kyle Busch is the favorite to win, as he has 5/1 odds. Other short odds to prevail are Matt Kenseth (13/2), Carl Edwards (15/2) and Kevin Harvick (15/2). The Bass Pro Shops Night Race takes place tonight at 8:16PM ET from Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, TN.
Kyle Busch has good reason to be favored, as he is a five-time winner at Bristol in his career. The defending Sprint Cup champion has an average finish of 13.1 at the track and a driver rating of 99.1, which is second only to Matt Kenseth in this field. Look for Busch to have another strong showing at Bristol tonight.
Kurt Busch has 12/1 odds to win this race and we think that has great value. Like Kyle, he is also a five-time winner at this track. His average finish is 14.1 and his driver rating is 93.4, which ranks seventh in today’s field. This has been a good track to him for many years, so look for him to try and capitalize on that tonight.
Surprisingly, Matt Kenseth has 12/1 odds tonight as well, though his numbers are among the best at this track. He is a four-time winner at Bristol and has a driver rating of 102.1, the only driver to have a rating over 100 in this field at this track. Kenseth has shown he can still win this season, picking up two wins this year already. Don’t be afraid to bet on him tonight.
