On to Dover…

After the wild finish at Talladega last week, one that saw Ross Chastain make his second trip to victory lane this season, the NASCAR Cup Series heads to The Monster Mile for the DuraMAX Drydene 400 at Dover Motor Speedway.

Located in Dover, Delaware, the mile-long concrete track has hosted a NASCAR Cup Series race since 1969, and features a 24-degree bank around the corners and a 9-degree bank on the straights.

Denny Hamlin took the checkered flag last year, and while he’s won a race this season, he still sits at #24 in the Cup Series standings. Needless to say, he hasn’t been running that well this year, but he’s always in the mix to repeat last year’s magic, especially starting on the front line next to pole winner Chris Buescher.

So without further ado… let’s get to the odds, picks and predictions for this week in NASCAR:

Kyle Larson +450
Chase Elliott +600
Ryan Blaney +800
Alex Bowman +900
Denny Hamlin +1000
Ross Chastain +1400
Kyle Busch +1400
William Byron +1600
Martin Truex Jr. +1600
Joey Logano +1600
Kevin Harvick +1800
Daniel Suarez +2000
Christopher Bell +2500
Tyler Reddick +2500
Chris Buescher +3000
Chase Briscoe +3000
Austin Cindric +4000
Austin Dillon +6000
Kurt Busch +6000
Brad Keselowski +7000
Bubba Wallace +7000
Ryan Preece +7500
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. +7500
A.J. Allmendinger +10000
Aric Almirola +10000
Justin Haley +10000
Cole Custer +15000
Erik Jones +20000
Corey LaJoie +30000
Michael McDowell +50000
Ty Dillon +50000
Todd Gilliland +50000
Harrison Burton +50000
Cody Ware +100000
B.J. McLeod +100000
Josh Bilicki +100000


We’re 10 races into the NASCAR Cup Series season and we’re about to enter a stretch of Speedway races, at Dover, Darlington, Kansas, Texas and Charlotte. Mile to mile and a half speedways, these tracks are gonna separate the men from the boys.

At Dover, I’m high on Team Hendrick, who as an entire group have been running well this season. William Byron has two wins on the year, Kyle Larson and Alex Bowman both have a win, and with a winless Chase Elliott leading the way, all four drivers find themselves in the top seven spots in the points standings.

And this week, I like Chase to snap the winless streak.

I think Chase wins today, by Kyle Larson is in the mix as well. I also like Kyle Harvick at +1800 and you gotta keep an eye on Ryan Blaney and Joey Logano who have been in the mix week in and week out. And I think Martin Truex Jr. could cause some problems too.

Aric Almirola, Cole Custer, and Austin Dillon figure to be dark horse contenders.

This week, I’m fading Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin, and Ross Chastain.


Here’s what we’re going with for the Geico 500:

Winner: Chase Elliott

Top 3: Kyle Larson

Top 5: Kevin Harvick

Top 10: Austin Dillon
