Goody's Fast Relief 500 Picks

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Picks: Goody’s Fast Relief 500 10/30/16

The Goody’s Fast Relief 500 takes place later today, kicking off the third stage of the NASCAR Playoffs. Here are some drivers we like to contend for the victory.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Kyle Busch is favored to win the race, as he has 4/1 odds. Other short odds to win are Jimmie Johnson (5/1), Denny Hamlin (6/1) and Kevin Harvick (6/1). The Goody’s Fast Relief 500 takes place today at 1:13PM ET from Martinsville Speedway in Ridgeway, VA.

Bet on the Goody’s Fast Relief 500

Jimmie Johnson has dominated at Martinsville, winning eight times in his career. He also has the top numbers of any driver in this field, with an average finish of 7.5 and a driver rating of 117.8. Johnson hasn’t made it to the Final 4 of the Chase yet, but I think he earns his spot by winning this race today.

Denny Hamlin also is great at this track, winning five times in his career. His average finish of 9.5 and driver rating of 108.1 at Martinsville is second only to Jimmie Johnson. Look for Hamlin to be near the front of the pack at the end of this race as he tries to punch his ticket to the Sprint Cup final.

Kurt Busch has been given 20/1 odds for today’s race, but I feel he has plenty of value at that price. Busch is a two-time winner at this track despite having just an average finish of 21.2 here. Busch has quietly worked his way into the final 8 of the playoffs, so he is consistently running well. With a little strategy and luck, he can come through for a big payday in a race he needs.
