The Coca-Cola 600 will get underway in 6 pm ET on Sunday on FOX, with Kyle Busch as the clear favorite (+250 gambling odds).
Kevin Harvick (+600) and Martin Truex Jr. (+600) aren’t too far behind in what’s going to be the greatest race of the year.
Nick Giffen utilizes his statistical model to disability the four greatest futures values in the race.
For the second successive weekend, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will be racing at Charlotte Motor Speedwday (6:00 p.m. ET, FOX). However, this time rather than an All-Star shootout, motorists ‘ are in for a grueling 600 miles from the Cup Series’ longest race of the year.

Charlotte is a 1.5-mile oval with a comparatively old surface which was repaved back in 2006. We saw in the All-Star race that tires failed to make a difference and that track position was also extremely significant, so this race should provide a good mix of multiple 1.5-mile tracks.

The most recent 1.5-mile points-paying race was also a night race at Kansas Speedwday. In that race, the top five at average green-flag speed all showed up at the top nine in 15-lap rate in Happy Hour, regardless of the race being during the nighttime and final practice throughout the day.

We’ve got a similar scenario at Charlotte this weekend, so I’ll certainly rely on long-haul pace in addition to 1.5-mile performance this year and past Charlotte oval functionality when handicapping the race.

Equipped with all these data points, let’s get right into my four favorite bets to win tonight’s race, also bonus top-five and top-10 props.

A quick primer on the odds under: A $100 wager at +375 odds would profit $375, while a $200 bet at -200 chances would pay out $100.

Kevin Harvick +600 to Acquire
Kyle Busch is your favorite thanks to his outstanding rate in Happy Hour and three wins to Harvick’s zero wins this year. However, it might be argued that Harvick should be a co-favorite despite completing only 13th on the 10-lap board in closing practice.

That is because in opening practice, he was considerably better relative to the rest of the field over 10 consecutive laps. His fifth-place time during the cooler temperatures is reassuring. Actually, Harvick’s Crew Chief Rodney Childers stated the cars are really sensitive to monitor changes, and that they were really great in opening clinic throughout the warmer temperatures.
