52013 Kyle Busch 5/2

Busch is the favorite today and has the points lead coming into this race at Martinsville. Over his career, Busch has picked up two victories at this track. His average finish over 26 races there is 12.7, while his driver rating is 103.5. Busch is comfortably in first place in the point standings, but still could use a win to secure his spot in the final race.

52007 Denny Hamlin 14/1

While Hamlin doesn’t have a chance to win the season title anymore, he can still pick up a win today at a track he is very strong at. Hamlin has five wins at Martinsville in his career and an average finish of 10.1 over 25 races. He has a driver rating of 106.3 at the track, which is second best in the field. Hamlin hasn’t had a 2018 season to remember, so he will be eager to pick up a victory to give himself something positive to end the year on.

52025 Kurt Busch 25/1

Busch finds himself in seventh place in the point standings, with his chance at a championship still alive. He is listed with some long odds today due to three DNF’s at Martinsville in his career. Despite that, he also is a two-time winner at this track. Give all that is at stake for Busch, I think he provides a lot of value. He knows he likely needs a win over these next three races to make that winner-take-all race for the title. Look for him to be aggressive today and do all he can to get that needed win.
