2019 Pocono 400 Odds, Predictions & Picks

Written by on May 31, 2019

Okay NASCAR betting faithful, with my No. 3 pick to win last weekend’s Cocoa-Cola 600 cashing in, it’s time to look forward to this coming weekend’s Pocono 400. Truex Jr. now has a season-high tying three wins this season, but he’s not the prohibitive favorite as the No. 3 pick on the board at 6-1 odds to win at the Tricky Triangle.

NASCAR leader Kyle Busch, who also has a trio of wins on the season, is the favorite at 3-to-1 with Kevin Harvick the No. 2 pick as he looks for his first win of the season. The Pocono 400 will take place on Sunday at 2:00 PM ET, live from Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pa. Now, let’s get to my top five picks to win this weekend, along with the lastest NASCAR odds.

No. 5 Kurt Busch

This Busch brother might be offering as much value as his sibling despite his long odds. Busch won this event in 2016 and he’s also managed to win on this track in the fall of 2005 and 2007. Busch is currently in eighth place in the NASCAR standings with eight Top 10 finishes and three Top 5 finishes. He could get the upset win here even if his odds don’t suggest that!

No. 4 Kevin Harvick

Kevin Harvick is still looking for his first win of the year and he’s never won in his career at Pocono Raceway, but I believe he’s got a real shot heading into this event. Harvick has finished fourth or better in each of his last five appearances here and he’s got a mind-boggling four second place finishes on this track since 2014. Harvick sits in fourth place in the NASCAR standings with nine Top 10 finishes and five Top 5 finishes. After his handful of near wins here, Harvick looks like he’s due!

No. 3 Denny Hamlin

Hamlin won this race in 2006 and 2010, but that’s not all. The 38-year-old veteran, who hails from Florida, also took the checkered flag here in the fall of 2009 while claiming both wins at Pocono in 2006. Hamlin hasn’t cracked the Top 10 in each of his last five races, but that tells me he may be due.

No. 2 Kyle Busch

While Kyle Busch has never won this event, he has won on this track in the fall in each of the last two years and that means he knows this track well. Busch has a NASCAR-leading 12 Top 10 finishes this year to go with his seven Top 5 finishes and three wins. Busch hasn’t won since the start of April, so he’s due.

No. 1 Martin Truex Jr.

Not including the annual Monster Energy Open and ensuing all-star race, Martin Truex Jr. has won three of the last five races, including last week’s Cocoa-Cola 400. While Truex Jr. is on fire right now, he’s also never managed to win consecutive races in his career. Still, seeing as how he’s won this event twice in the last four years, I think Truex Jr. is the pick to bring home the bacon this coming weekend.
