Ford EcoBoost 400 Picks
The Ford EcoBoost 400, the race for the Sprint Cup Championship, takes place later today. Here are some drivers we think can win.
According to the latest oddsmakers, Kevin Harvick is the current favorite with 9/2 odds while Denny Hamlin, Joey Logano and Kyle Busch each have 6/1 odds. The Ford EcoBoost 400 takes place today at 3:15PM ET from Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Kevin Harvick has found a way to perform in the big situations and we expect that to take place again today. He starts 13th today and is a former winner at Phoenix. His average finish here is 7.6 and with the championship up for grabs, Harvick seems like the way to go.
Jeff Gordon has 8/1 odds today and he starts in fifth position. He is a former winner at this track and has a driver rating of 100.7 at the track. With this being his final Sprint Cup race, we expect Gordon to be aggressive and go for it all. His win a few weeks back allowed him to focus all his attention on this race and winning the championship. He qualified well and we think he can take the victory.
Matt Kenseth has 10/1 odds to win today. He is out of the Chase and back from a two-race suspension. Given all the negativity, he is looking to end his season on a high note. He has won at this track before and has an impressive 108.9 driver rating at Homestead. Look for Kenseth to play spoiler today and possibly pick up the win.
