Ford EcoBoost 400 Free Picks
HOMESTEAD, FL (ATS CONSULTANTS) – The Ford EcoBoost 400 will take place later this afternoon with a lot at stake. Here is a look at our free picks for this race.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Kevin Harvick is favored to win this race, as he has 7/2 odds. Other short odds to win are Jeff Gordon (5/1), Jimmie Johnson (6/1) and Brad Keselowski (6/1).
Here are some drivers we like today:
Harvick will start from the fifth position today and he is one of four drivers contending for the Sprint Cup title, so you can expect him to be very aggressive on the track. He has never won at Miami, but his average finish is 8.1 and his driver rating is 99.1, which is the fourth-best rating in today’s field. Harvick has arguably been the top driver for the last five weeks and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him win against today.
Gordon isn’t contending for the Sprint Cup title, but he’d like to end a strong 2014 season with a win. This is a track that has been strong for him, as he has one win and an average finish of 10.6 here. His driver rating is 96.5, which ranks sixth today. Gordon has already shown his ability to be fast for this race, as he has the pole position today.
Bowyer will be starting sixth in this race, which is his best starting position in six weeks. He is looking to avoid two full season without a win, so today’s race has some meaning for Bowyer, who has had a down year. He finished fifth in this race a year ago, so he knows he can run well today. Look for Bowyer to be in contention at the end, and if a non-chase driver wins, he should be among the top candidates.
