Which driver among 4 that can win the Monster Energy Cup deserves backing to take the EcoBoost 400?
There are two events happening at Homestead on Sunday. First, the 4 remaining drivers in the NASCAR Playoffs battle for the Monster Energy Cup. Only Hamlin, Harvick, Busch, and Truex Jr. can win the NASCAR Championship. Second, all drivers can win the EcoBoost 400.
With that in mind, let’s first discuss the odds on the 4 favorites to win the actual race on Nov. 17. Last year, Joey Logano won the EcoBoost 400. Logano also won the Monster Energy Cup with the victory. Joey offered longshot odds to win both the race and the championship.
The driver that finished behind Logano, Martin Truex Jr., offers underlay +275 odds along with Kyle Busch to win this year’s race. Both Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin offer +300 odds. If you wish to wager on one of the favorites, go with Harvick or Hamlin.
Lean towards Hamlin because he won the pole last year. In addition, Hamilin won at Phoenix last week. Denny is the third Joe Gibbs Racing driver that can win the Monster Energy Cup on Sunday. He’s the pick among the favorites.
2019 Monster Energy Cup Odds
- Kevin Harvick +260
- Kyle Busch +250
- Denny Hamlin +260
- Martin Truex Jr. +250
Although wagering on Denny Hamlin to win the EcoBoost 400 makes sense, an alternative wager exists. Instead of betting on one of the 4 favorites to win the race, you can wager on 1-of-4 to win the Monster Energy Cup. This might make more sense. The 4 drivers with a shot to win the race only must finish ahead of 3 other drivers to win the championship.
Bet Hamlin at +260 to beat Harvick, Busch, and Truex Jr. at lower odds instead of, or in conjunction with, betting on Denny to win the Ford EcoBoost 400.
Is there one or two drivers between +800 and +2500 odds that has an advantage over the competition at the Ford EcoBoost 400?
Joey Logano offers great odds at +1600 to win on Nov. 17. Logano won the EcoBoost 400 last year. Also, he should be motivated. Hamlin knocked him out of the Cup chase at Phoenix last week.
What longshot driver with odds of at least +4000 can take the checkered flag on Nov. 17?
If you want to back a longshot, give Clint Bowyer a look. Bowyer finished 8th at Phoenix last Sunday. Likewise, he finished 8th at the 2018 EcoBoost 400. He could pop at a huge price.
