Ford EcoBoost 400 Predictions
The 2019 NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series wraps up its season with the running of the Ford EcoBoost 400. Here’s three drivers we like for today’s championship race.
According to the latest oddsmakers, Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin, Martin Truex Jr. and Kevin Harvick are all listed with 3/1 odds to win.The Ford EcoBoost 400 is set to take place today at 3PM from Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, Florida.
52203 Kevin Harvick 3/1
Harvick is one of the four drivers competing for a title today and he has the best numbers at Miami. Harvick won this race back in 2014 and he has finished in the top four in this race the last five years. His average finish at Miami is 5.643, while his driver rating is 108.2. Harvick is looking to secure his second series championship today and this is definitely one of his top tracks. I look for him to be the guy to beat today.
52201 Martin Truex Jr. 3/1
Like Harvick, Truex Jr. has great numbers for this track. He was the 2017 winner of this race when he won his only series championship. Truex was second in this race last year as well and he comes into today with an average finish of 9.154 at the track and a driver rating of 105.5 at Miami. I look for Truex Jr. and Harvick to be the two to battle it out for the championship today.
52208 Chase Elliott 22/1
If you are looking for a driver that is not in the final four that could come away with a win today, I like Elliott. He has some long odds, but his history at Miami gives reason that he could come through with a win today. In his three appearances in this race, Elliott has placed 11th or better. He has a 95.1 driver rating at Homestead and I think he will be in the mix for a victory today. While he doesn’t have a championship at stake, he still can push for the victory and earn you a big payout.
