Sports Simulations

2K20 NBA Players Tournament

The biggest betting event on Friday is the 2k20 NBA Players Tournament. The National Basketball Association got together with NBA2K and came up with an interesting 16-player tournament.

The 16 players in order of seeding are Kevin Durant, Trae Young, Hassan Whiteside, Donovan Mitchell, Devin Booker, Andre Drummond, Zach LaVine, Montrezl Harrell, Derrick Jones Jr., Harrison Barnes, Patrick Beverley, Rui Hachimura, Michael Porter Jr., DeMarcus Cousins, DeAndre Ayton, and Domantas Sabonis.

NBA2K based the seedings on the players’ power ranking in the NBA2K video game. So, Durant has a higher power ranking than Trae Young. Each player chooses 8 teams from the NBA2K game. They mustn’t choose the team they play for.

The players then battle each other in the tournament to determine the NBA2K20 Players Tournament Winner. That’s it. In this tournament, NBA players will play each other. And, yes, you can wager on the battles!

You will have the chance to bet on the NBA2k Players Tournament Odds page on the matchups and also bet on the winner of the Players Tournament.

WRC – Mexico 2020 Preview & Odds

In the world of motor sports, most fans tend to lean towards Formula 1 and NASCAR, but those are certainly not the only games in town. More and more racing fans are looking for something a little different, which is certainly what you get with the FIA World Rally Championship. Rather than driving on a designated track, the participants in the WRC go off road to tackle some seriously challenging courses. This weekend, March 13-16, the WRC will be in Mexico for the first gravel road race of the year, which will present a new challenge for the drivers. That is on top of the heat and altitude of Mexico, which will deliver even more obstacles for the drivers and their navigators. Let’s take a closer look at the top 5 drivers and Rally Odds who will be tackling the 24 stage, 324 km WRC Mexico 2020.

WRC – Mexico 2020 Preview & Odds

Elfyn Evans – The British driver sits atop the standing right now after winning the second race of the season in Sweden on a snow-covered course that is always difficult to negotiate. The switch from the snow to gravel will be a test for all the drivers, but it is going to be interesting to see if Evans, and his navigator Scott Martin, are as good on this surface as they were on the snow in Sweden.

Thierry Neuville – The Hyundai Racing Team is somewhat new to the WRC, but they have made a pretty big impact in the few years that they have been racing. They have several drivers on their team, but it is Neuville and his partner Nicolas Gilsoul, who are leading the way for Hyundai. They got the season off to a winning start in Monte Carlo and are tied on points at 42 in the driver standings with Evans. The Belgian dur need to be considered a threat here.

Sebastien Ogier – The overwhelming favorite for this race needs to be the French duo of Ogier and Julien Ingrassia, as they have won here in each of the last two years. Overall, they have won this race in 5 of the last 7 runs, so you can bet that there will be a lot of betting money riding on them this weekend. They are currently 3rd in the driver standings, but they could move up with a win here.

Kalle Rovanpera – In the previous 16 years that this event has been part of the WRC under this name, it has only even been won once by a Finnish driver. Rovanpera and Halttunen will be looking to change all that, as they also look to improve on their #4 standing, where they currently sit with 30 points. They have looked good over the opening two races of the season, so they are certainly in with a shot here.

Esapekka Lappi – The Finnish duo of Lappi and Ferm have yet to win a stage through the first 2 races of the season, but they have done enough to earn 24 points and land in the middle of the pack. The switch away from snow may help them kick on a bit this weekend, but I would certainly be looking elsewhere for a winner of the Mexico event.

2020 Busch Clash at Daytona Odds, Preview & Predictions

The 2020 NASCAR Cup Season kicks off on Sunday, Feb. 9 with the annual Busch Clash at Daytona. The top drivers at NASCAR will participate, including Joey Logano, Brad Keselowski, Kevin Harvick, and last year’s Cup winner, Kyle Busch. Although an exhibition race for 75 laps, the Clash does award the winner a sweet cash prize. Will Kyle start the season with a win? Or, will one of his rivals throw down the gauntlet? Check out a preview and analysis for the 2020 Busch Clash at Daytona!

2020 Busch Clash at Daytona Odds, Preview & Predictions

  • When: Sunday, Feb. 9 at 3:00 pm ET
  • Where: Daytona International Speedway, Daytona Beach, FL
  • TV: FS1
  • Live Stream: Fox Sports Go
  • Radio: MRN

2020 NASCAR Busch Clash at Daytona Odds

  • Joey Logano +700
  • Brad Keselowski +750
  • Kevin Harvick +900
  • Kyle Busch +900
  • Denny Hamlin +900
  • Chase Elliott +900
  • Martin Truex Jr. +1200
  • Ryan Blaney +1200
  • Kurt Busch +1400
  • Alex Bowman +1600
  • William Byron +1600
  • Aric Almirola +1600
  • Clint Bowyer +1600
  • Jimmie Johnson +1600
  • Erik Jones +1800
  • Kyle Larson +1800
  • Austin Dillon +2200
  • Ryan Newman +2800

Which driver Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski has the best shot of winning the Busch Clash at Daytona?

Brad Keselowski won this race in 2018. Joey Logano finished second to Kesel that year. In 2017, Logano took the checkered flag while Keselowski finished sixth. What happened last year? Logano finished third and Keselowski finished eighteenth.

Although all drivers hope to race well in the Busch Clash, the real prize is next Sunday at the Daytona 500. Keselowski won’t go all out on Feb. 9. Just like he didn’t go all out last year. Logano and his crew have done well in this 3 years running. If you want to back chalk, back Joey.

Which drivers with odds from +900 to +1200 can win the Busch Clash?

Ryan Blaney can grab the prize money. Last year, Blaney finished fourth. He also finished fourth in 2018. How did Ryan perform in 2017? Not well because he didn’t race. He didn’t race at The Clash in 2016, either.

That’s a good thing. It means the two times Blaney has driven in this race, he’s grabbed a couple of Top 5 finishes. At +1200, Ryan offers decent odds. Give him a shot to take the checkered flag.

What drivers offering odds of +1400 to +1600 can win at Daytona on Sunday?

A couple of drivers qualify. Kurt Busch finished second last year. That was his first NASCAR Season driving for Chip Ganassi Racing. The year before, Busch finished third driving for Stewart-Haas.

Jimmie Johnson won this race last year. The greatest driver in NASCAR history has declared 2020 his final season. Johnson figures to go all out this year. He won’t use the Busch Clash as a warmup for the Daytona 500. He’s going to try and win. At the 1600 odds, JJ’s worth a look.

Which driver among Erik Jones, Kyle Larson, Austin Dillon, and Ryan Newman can win the 2020 Busch Clash at Daytona?

Give Austin Dillon a big chance. 2019 was a bad year for Austin Dillon. He failed to finish in the Top 5 in any race. It was the first time in his career he failed to crack the Top 5 barrier. Also, he finished twenty-first in the final point standings. That was the lowest of his career.

Dillon can bounce back in 2020. Although 2019 was awful, it didn’t start out bad. He finished sixth in the Busch Clash. Austin can start the 2020 NASCAR Season out well with a win on Feb. 9.

2019 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Odds, Preview & Picks

With the final race of the 2019 Formula 1 season set to get underway on Sunday and this year’s championship all wrapped up as the legendary Lewis Hamilton took home his sixth career championship, it’s time to take a look at the drivers that stand the best chance of finding their way into the winner’s circle this weekend. With Hamilton looking to bag his fifth win at Yas Marina Circuit and his second straight, let’s find out who’s looking like they could beat out the incomparable reigning champ.

2019 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Odds, Preview & Picks

  • When: Sunday, December 1st, 2019 at 8am ET
  • Where: Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
  • TV: Fox Sports
  • Live Stream: Formula1.com

Valtteri Bottas

  • 2019 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Odds: +500

The 30-year-old Bottas didn’t finish in Brazil, but he did win the previous race on U.S. soil while also winning in japan two races prior to that. Bottas won this race back in 2017 while finishing fifth a year ago. Still, the veteran looks like a bit of a long shot to me, seeing as how he’s recorded two retirements in six career appearances in this event while also finishing 13th in 2015 and 15th in 2013.

Charles Leclerc

  • 2019 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Odds: +450

LeClerc and Ferrari teammate Sebastian Vettel had an embarrassing crash down the stretch in Brazil to finish a distant 18th. The talented LeClerc finished seventh here a year ago in his debut at Abu Dahbi but he hasn’t been on the podium in each of his last four races. Still, after winning back-to-back in Belgium and Italy and following those wins up with a second place finish in Russia, the 22-year-old LeClerc will have a chance.

Sebastian Vettel

  • 2019 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Odds: +650

The 32-year-old Vettel trails Leclerc by just 19 points despite failing to finish three of his past five races. The four-time Formula One champion (2010-2013)  finished second here a year ago following a pair of third place finishes in each of the previous two years. Vettel has has won this race three times and reached the podium on seven occasions.

Max Verstappen

  • 2019 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Odds: +650

33-year-old Max Verstappen earned his third win of the season by taking the checkered flag in Brazil. Now, just 11 points head of Leclerc in the battle for third place, Verstappen will be going all out for the win. Verstappen finished third place in this race a year ago and has finished in the top five in each of the past three years despite starting from the third row each time. A minimum third-place finish on Sunday will guarantee a third-place finish for Verstappen in the F1 Drivers Standings.

Lewis Hamilton

  • 2019 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Odds: +175

With F1’s biggest superstar has already claimed his sixth career Formula One title with a seventh-place finish at Brazil, the 34-year-old Hamilton still has some good reasons to shoot for the win in this season-ending event. The Englishman sits just 21 points shy of the Formula One record for most points in a season, which he set last year. Hamilton can eclipse that mark with a victory on Sunday.

2019 NASCAR Season Betting Recap

Okay NASCAR betting enthusiasts, with the 2019 season now firmly in the rear-view mirror, it’s time to take a fun-filled look back at the season that was, while offering up a slight glimpse of what could lie ahead in 2020.

2019 NASCAR Season Betting Recap

Kyle Busch

The 2015 NASCAR champ, Busch started off the year as a +450 prohibitive co-favorite alongside Kevin Harvick for good reason. He’s reached the Championship 4 in each of the past five years, including this season’s Cup-winning performance. Busch won back-to-back races in Phoenix and California before winning in Bristol three weeks later. Two months later he won his fourth race of the year at Pocono Raceway. Despite a 21-race winless streak after that, Busch managed to win the biggest and most important race of them all by taking the championship in Miami. His 56 Cup wins ranks second only to Jimmie Johnson (83) among active drivers. Busch is now tied with Rusty Wallace on the all-time wins list.

Kevin Harvick

Harvick was the +450 co-favorite entering 2019, but he got off to a slow start by failing to find his way into the winner’s circle until the 22nd race of the year at New Hampshire. However, he picked up the pace by winning three times in a seven-week span to put himself into championship contention. Ultimately though, Harvick finished fourth in the championship race to finish the year third overall with four victories.

Martin Truex Jr.

Truex Jr. entered the year as the No. 3 overall favorite (+600) and he more than lived up to expectations by recording a season-best seven wins beginning in the year’s ninth race at Richmond. The 2017 NASCAR champ came up just short of winning it all by finishing second in the championship race, just five points behind Kyle Busch.

Chase Elliott

Despite entering the year as the fourth overall pick (+700), Elliott came up well short of his championship hopes by finishing the year 10th in the standings. Still, the future is bright for the 24-year-old Georgia native after he recorded three wins this season.

Kyle Larson

Larson entered the year as the No. 5 pick to win the title at +700 and he pretty much lived up to expectations by finishing sixth in the standings. While the 27-year-old California native recorded just one victory at Dover, he did manage to finish with eight Top 5 finishes and 17 Top 10 finishes.

Brad Keselowski

Keselowski entered the year as tied for the sixth overall favorite at +1000. The 35-year-old Michigan native won three times, but he also failed to find himself in the winner’s circle over the season’s final 26 races. Still, with three wins and 13 Top 5 finishes, there’s no reasons to believe Keselowski won’t contend again in 2020.

Ryan Blaney

Tied for the sixth overall pick at +1000, Blaney finished seventh overall with a modest one win, 11 Top 5 finishes and 18 Top 10 finishes. Still, just 25-years-old, the Ohio native will almost certainly contend for years to come.

Joey Logano

The 2018 NASCAR champ was also a +100 pick to go back-to-back, but Logano came up well short by finishing the year with a modest two wins, 12 Top 5 finishes and 21 Top 10 finishes.  Still, just 29-years-old, the Connecticut native will surely challenge for multiple NASCAR titles moving forward.

39-year-old Florida native Denny Hamlin finished the year second in victories with six while finishing the year fourth overall with an impressive 19 Top 5 finishes and 24 Top 10 finishes.

The End Is Near For J.J.

95 straight races without a win has apparently shown that it’s time for Jimmy Johnson to hang it up. For the second consecutive season, seven-time series champion Johnson failed to win a points event. Now, the legendary Johnson has announced that the upcoming 2020 NASCAR season will be his last and he’s getting love from everyone within the sport.

2019 MotoGP Season Betting Recap

So much went down this season. The champion is already crowned, with Marc Marquez taking the title. What can we expect in 2020? With the 2019 MotoGP Season now in the books, it’s time to take a look back at the MotoGP betting season that was.

2019 MotoGP Season Betting Recap

Spaniard, Marc Marquez won his fourth straight and sixth overall career MotoGP title by recording a season-best 12 wins in 19 races across the globe. Marquez won three of the first five races of the season and then recorded five straight wins in races 13 through 17 before clinching his title with another victory in the season-ending event in Valencia. Still just 26-years-old, Marquez, the Repsol Honda superstar looks like he’s going to go down in history as the greatest of all-time as he nears the all-time record of Giacomo Agostini’s eight career titles.

33-year-old Italian Andrea Dovizioso finished the year as the runner-up for Ducati for the third consecutive year with two wins and nine podium finishes. Still, he finished a distant second to Marquez with 269 points to the champs’ stunning total of 420 points.

24-year-old Spaniard Maverick Viñales finished third for Yamaha with two wins at the Dutch TT and Malaysia. Viñales recorded seven podium finishes while finishing the year third for the second time in his career.

23-year-old Spaniard Álex Rins also recorded two wins on the year to finish fourth overall by winning on American soil in April and taking the British Grand Prix in August. Rins recorded three podium finishes on the year and has improved on his finish in each of the three years he’s been on the MotoGP circuit.

The year’s only other winner was Danilo Petrucci who won the Italian Grand Prix in June. The 29-year-old Italian finished sixth overall behind fifth place finisher Fabio Quartararo. The 20-year-old Frenchman recorded a fantastic, five second place finishes on the year and a pair of third place finishes.

2020 MotoGP Season Preview

With a quick look toward 2020, clearly it’s going to be very difficult for anyone to beat out the supremely gifted Marc Marquez, who, at just 26-years-old, is definitely in the prime of his career. However, Marquez will definitely be challenged and he’s expecting it. After narrowly beating out talented rookie Fabio Quartararo in San Marino in September, Marquez had this to say about his young rival.

“The real winner, who did the best race, was Fabio,” said Marquez.“Fabio showed to all of us – I already knew [this] – that he has the potential, the talent, the bike, the team to fight for the championship next year. And I believe – I will try to avoid this – from now till the end of the season he will be a tough contender, and he will win some races. We will try to avoid this, but I predict next year he will be a tough contender for the championship.”

In addition to a challenge from  Quartararo, Marquez will also be challenged by two other young riders in Viñales and Rins, although I’m predicting that Dovizioso is going to take a slight step backwards following his trio of runner-up finishes. Last but not least, another rider to keep an eye out on in 2020 is 24-year-old Australian Jack Miller after he finished eighth this year while recording five podium finishes.

2019 Brazilian Grand Prix Odds, Preview & Predictions

With only 2 races left in the 2019 Formula One Season, Lewis Hamilton has placed the championship trophy into the bag. Although Hamilton has already won the hardware, it doesn’t mean his fellow competitors won’t try to take the checkered flag on Sunday. Check out the F1 odds and analysis for the 2019 Brazilian Grand Prix!

2019 Brazilian Grand Prix Odds, Preview & Predictions

  • When: Sunday, Nov. 17 at 12:10 pm ET
  • Where: Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace
  • TV: ESPN 2
  • Live Stream: WatchESPN

Odds to Win the 2019 Brazil Grand Prix

  • Lewis Hamilton +135
  • Valtteri Bottas +275
  • Max Verstappen +275
  • Sebastian Vettel +500
  • Charles Leclerc +1400
  • Alexander Albon +9000

Which Mercedes driver, Lewis Hamilton or Valtteri Bottas, has the best chance of winning the Brazil Grand Prix?

Not only did Mercedes win the F1 Championship with Lewis Hamilton, they are almost guaranteed to finish second with Valtteri Bottas. Heading to Brazil, Bottas has 314 points. Valtteri is ahead of Max Verstappen by 64 points.

In the head-to-head on Sunday, Bottas figures to drive well on Nov. 17. But, Bottas finished 5th at the 2018 Brazil Grand Prix. Even Hamilton has already won the championship, that doesn’t mean he won’t strive for another trophy. Expect Hamilton to beat Bottas as well as win another Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday.

Which Ferrari driver, Charles Leclerc or Sebastian Vettel, has the best chance of winning the Brazil Grand Prix?

Vettel has a better chance, but Leclerc might be worth a look at +1400 odds. Charles finished 4th at Mexico on Oct. 27. On Nov. 3 in the U.S., Leclerc finished 4th again. If Hamilton falters, Leclerc has much of a shot to win as Bottas. That gives him the third best shot to win the Brazilian Grand Prix after Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen.

What are Max Verstappen’s fair odds to win the Brazil GP?

Verstappen has driven great. However, his odds are much too low to recommend a wager. Even though he’s second choice along with Valtteri, Verstappen’s true chances of beating Hamilton are closer to +325 than +275. If you just want higher odds than the chalk, he’s a decent play. Otherwise, back Hamilton.

Should Alexander Albon’s odds be higher or lower to win the Brazil Grand Prix?

The odds on Albon should be higher. He hasn’t finish better than 4th in any race this year. Furthermore, Albon finished 4th in only a single race, the Japan Grand Prix, this season. He has plenty of 5th place finishes. 5th place doesn’t provide much in Formula 1.

2019 Bluegreen Vacations 500 Odds, Preview & Picks

Okay NASCAR betting faithful. With the 2019 campaign steamrolling toward a fast and furious finish,  it’s time to take preview the latest edition in the chase for this season’s NASCAR championship. The 35th of 36 season-long Monster Energy NASCAR races is set to get underway on Sunday, November 10, at 2:30 PM ET, when the 2019 Bluegreen Vacations 500 gets underway live from ISM Raceway in Avondale, Arizona.

More importantly, when this event, formerly known as the Can Am 500, goes down live this weekend, it will be win or go home time for four of the eight remaining drivers in this year’s Cup Championship Playoffs.  Denny Hamlin, Ryan Blaney, Kyle Larson, and Chase Elliott all need a victory to advance to qualify for this year’s championship race. The four drivers that do advance will head to Homestead-Miami Speedway next week for a shot at the 2019 NASCAR championship. Now, let’s take a look at the NASCAR odds, before I share my top five picks to win and cash in!

2019 Bluegreen Vacations 500 Odds, Preview & Picks

  • When: Sunday, November 10, 2019 at
  • Where: ISM Raceway, Avondale, AZ
  • TV: NBC
  • Live Stream: NBCSports.com

Odds to Win the 2019 Bluegreen Vacations 500

  • Kyle Busch +300
  • Denny Hamlin +400
  • Kevin Harvick +500
  • Martin Truex Jr. +500
  • Chase Elliott +800
  • Kyle Larson +1200
  • Ryan Blaney +1200
  • Brad Keselowski +1600
  • Erik Jones +2200
  • Joey Logano +2500
  • Kurt Busch +2500
  1. Joey Logano

The reigning NASCAR champ has finished a modest 17th, 8th and fourth over his last three races, but he has managed to win once on this track back in the fall of 2016 and he’s also recorded three other Top 5 finishes in 21 career appearances at ISM. Logano has two wins on the year, but none since June and he owns a modest career finishing average of just 15.24 at ISM.

  1. Martin Truex Jr.

Not only does the playoff-leading Truex Jr. have a season-high seven victories on the year, but he’s finished sixth, first and sixth again in his last three races. The only negative is that Truex Jr. has never won on this track although he did finish second here in March and owns four career Top 5 finishes while owning a modest career average of 15.85 at ISM Raceway.

  1. Denny Hamlin

Hamlin finished 28th and fourth in his previous two races before taking the checkered flag in Texas last weekend. Currently fifth in the playoff chase standings, Hamlin also won on this track back in the spring of 2012 and he’s won an impressive four races since late July. Hamlin has also recorded 11 other top five finishes on this track including a fifth place finish here in The TicketGuardian 500 in March. Hamlin has an average finish of 11.32 at ISM.

  1. Kyle Busch

There’s a reason why Kyle Busch is the co-favorite heading into this race and it’s because he’s won each of the last two races on this track and three times in his career at ISM, including last year’s playoff chase event. In addition to that, Busch has recorded a trio of second place finishes on this track while owning a solid average finish of 11.07. Still, it’s been a whopping 20 races since Busch last found himself taking a checkered flag since last winning at Pocono Raceway in June. Not only that, but Busch, who is currently third in the playoff standings, has finished third, 14th, and seventh in his last three races.

  1. Kevin Harvick

I don’t know why Kevin Harvick, who is second in the playoff standings, isn’t the unequivocal favorite in this event, but in my mind he should be. Harvick finished ninth in Kansas three races ago and seventh at Martinsville two weeks ago before taking the checkered flag last weekend in Texas. Not only is Harvick consistently giving himself a chance to win, but he’s also dominated at ISM Raceway by winning five straight races on this track from 2013-2015 while winning six times in an eight-race span from 2012-2016. In 33 career races at ISM, Harvick has also recorded seven other top five finishes, including a pair of second place finishes. I see no reason why Harvick won’t win again this year, which is why he’s my top pick to bring home the bacon in the 2019 Bluegreen 500!

Top 5 Drivers For The Win

5. Valtteri Bottas

The 30-year-old Finn is in second place in the F1 standings and still has a mathematical chance of winning his first F1 championship, but it would take a series of small miracles for it to happen. Bottas has finished an identical fifth in each of the last two USA Grand Prix events and he won in japan two races ago to record his third win of the year. Bottas will be in the mix, but he’s looking at an uphill battle in order to get the upset win.

4. Max Verstappen

The 30-year-old Belgian is in fifth place in the F1 standings with one win this season, but he hasn’t won in seven races while failing to finish twice during the span. Verstappen did finish second in this event a year ago one year after finishing fourth. This race marks Verstappen’s 100th career start, so he’ll definitely be going all-out to get the win.

3. Charles LeClerc

The 22-year-old LeClerc is definitely talented and has the look of a future champion as he currently sits in third place in the F1 standings, but the Ferrari driver hasn’t found himself in the winner’s circle in four straight races, although he did finish second in Singapore a month ago. LeClerc retired in last year’s race and looks like a bit of a long shot to me despite his odds as the No. 2 favorite on the board.

2. Sebastian Vettel

The 32-year-old German is in fourth place in the F1 standings, but he’s recorded a pair of second place finishes in each of his last two races while also adding a win in Singapore among his last four races. Vettel finished fourth in this event a year ago, second in 2017, fourth in 2016 and third in 2015 while taking the checkered flag in 2013. make no mistake about it, Vettel will challenge for the outright win.

1. Lewis Hamilton

Hamilton comes into this event off his 10th win of the year at Mexico last weekend. The five-time champ has won two of the last three races and all he needs to win the 2019 F1 championship is to finish in at least 7th place finish or 8th place with the fastest lap bonus point. Hamilton can also claim the title if Valtteri Bottas does not get the outright win, regardless of where he finishes.

More importantly, Hamilton has won the United States Grand Prix a record six times, including four straight from 2014-2017. With 10 wins in 16 races this season and the championship within his ample reach, Lewis Hamilton will be tough to keep out of the winner’s circle.

Which driver among Martin Truex Jr. and Kyle Busch is the better play at +500 to at Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday?

Martin Truex Jr. finished ninth in this race last year. Kyle Busch finished worse than Truex Jr. did. Kyle crossed the finish line in seventeenth. There wasn’t a ton of movement from either driver in the 2019 AAA Texas 500.

Truex Jr. went from thirteenth to ninth. Busch went from tenth to seventeenth. Both could produce similar results on Sunday. The likelier outcome is that both drive better on Nov. 3. Although that’s true, Kyle Busch is the better play at +500.

Even though Martin Truex Jr. won in Martinsville in the last playoff race, he struggled to finish twelfth at Texas Motor Speedway back on March 31. Kyle Busch finished tenth. Busch also has an apparent pattern. He races okay in an event and then picks it up in the very next event.

Kyle finished fourteenth in Martinsville. Expect a Top 5 finish on Sunday.

Is there a driver between +700 and +1400 odds that can win the AAA Texas 500?

Because Kevin Harvick has won the last two AAA Texas 500 races, he deserves much respect. He also offers decent odds at +800. Harvick should be at the top of any NASCAR handicapper’s betting list.

Ryan Blaney offers some value at +1200. Blaney finished second behind Harvick at the 2018 AAA Texas 500.

What longshot driver with odds of at least +2500 can take the checkered flag on Nov. 3?

Of the underdogs, Erik Jones offers the most value. Jones finished third in this race last year. He finished fourth at Texas Motor Speedway on March 31. He also drives for Joe Gibbs Racing, which means we know his car will be ready to roll on Sunday.
