Which driver among Kyle Busch, Truex Jr., Logano, Keselowski, and Harvick has the best chance of winning the NASCR Consumer’s Energy 400?

The Consumer’s Energy 400 is a race where Kyle Busch hasn’t dominated. He finished third in the race last year. Before that, he finished tenth. Kyle’s most definitely vulnerable here. But, which driver will step it up and steal his thunder?

Kevin Harvick looks like the driver that will do that. At Watkins Glen, Harvick finished seventh. That was his third straight Top 10 finish after a sixth at Pocono and a win at New Hampshire.

At last year’s Consumer’s Energy 400, Harvick beat Brad Keselowski. At the earlier race at Michigan this year, he finished seventh. Kevin could definitely cross the finish line first on August 10. Of the favorites, he deserves top billing.

Is there a driver between +1200 and +1800 odds that can win the NASCAR Consumer’s Energy 400?

This one is easy. Drivers must take Kyle Larson seriously at +1600. Save for a thirty-third place finish at New Hampshire, Larson has cruised to a Top 5 finish and two Top 10 finishes in 3 of his last 4.

Larson finished eighth at Watkins Glen last week. He finished fifth at Pocono in the race before. At Kentucky, he finished fourth. He and his crew have worked well together in recent races. Larson had a bad Consumer’s Energy 400 in 2018. That might account for the overlay odds. He won this race in both 2016 and 2017. At +1600, Kyle Larson looks formidable.

What longshot driver with odds of at least +2000 to +5000 who can take the checkered flag on August 11?

Ryan Blaney is the obvious choice at +2000 who can take the Consumer’s Energy 400 checkered flag. Just because Blaney is the obvious choice, it doesn’t mean he’s not worth backing. The odds are more than fair on a driver with three straight finishes at tenth or better.

His fifth at Watkins Glen means he and his crew are working well together. He had a decent ninth place finish at Michigan earlier this year. At the 2018 Consumer’s Energy 400, Ryan Blaney finished fifth. If you’re looking for a +2000 underdog, Blaney is the play.

Is there a +5000 odds or higher NASCAR driver that can win the 2018 Consumer’s Energy 400?

Aric Almirola hasn’t finished in the Top 10 since a seventh at Daytona on July 6. He had been knocking on the door to the Top 10, though. He finished twelfth at both Pocono and Watkins Glen.

Last year, Almirola finished seventh in this race. That gives him a shot. That’s really all we should ask at +5000 odds, that the driver we back has a shot. Aric Almirola has a shot to win on Sunday.
