NASCAR Betting – Quaker State 400 Odds

Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin have dominated the NASCAR Cup Series combining to win the last three races and five of the last seven, and Kyle Busch has enjoyed all kinds of success at Kentucky. So, it only makes sense that those three are perched at the top of the odds board when NASCAR’s season continues with the running of the Quaker State 400 Sunday afternoon at Kentucky Speedway.  Bookmaker is offering a generous welcome bonus with a $1000 maximum.

The big question heading into Sunday isn’t whether or not Harvick and Hamlin can continue their mastery. They’ve each won four times this season, doubling the number of victories from the next closest pursuer. No, the question is can Kyle Busch end his season-long drought and win for the first time. Neither Harvick nor Hamlin has a Cup Series win at Kentucky Speedway while Kyle has won eight times across all series on this track. Coming off his second win in the last three races, Harvick hit the board as the betting favorite, slightly ahead of Kyle and Hamlin.

Opening NASCAR Odds: Kevin Harvick +500

Driving a car seems like a fairly mundane task. Racing a car is another thing entirely. This week presents another set of challenges for the drivers. Due to the compacted schedule there will be five races contested over four days. That also means the Quaker State 400 will take place during day for the first time since 2013, adding another level of difficulty to the 1.5-mile tri oval.

Hamlin was running neck and neck with Harvick last week just like the two displayed at Pocono the week before – they swapped first and second finishes in the doubleheader. But Hamlin suffered a blow out with only seven laps remaining, ending his day and a chance for another victory. Instead, Harvick took the checkered flag in overtime, matching Hamlin for the most Cup Series wins this season with four.

Not surprisingly the two are situated high on the odds list. Harvick opened as the betting favorite at +500 with Kyle Busch (+525) and Hamlin (+650) next in line. Martin Truex Jr., Chase Elliott and Brad Keselowski are the other drivers with single digit odds.

There have been nine previous editions of the Quaker State 400 with three multiple winners. Keselowski crossed the finish line first in 2012, 2014 and 2016 to lead the way with three triumphs. Truex is the only back-to-back winner turning the trick in 2017 and 2018, and Kyle Busch won the maiden race in 2011 and again in 2015.

Quaker State 400 Preview

Kyle Busch has been the favorite in a number of races and at the top of the odds chart in the others. He’s still searching for his first Cup Series win of the season, however. He’s come close with a trio of runner-up finishes, but he’s been in the top-5 just once in his last six starts. Considering he’s won at least four times in each of the previous five seasons and is a two-time Cup Series Champion in that span you expect a visit to victory lane soon.

Running sixth last week was an improvement and could be a sign that Kyle is ready for the big moment. His success at Kentucky certainly leads to optimism. Along with his two wins he has a pair of seconds, including last year when he was edged by older brother Kurt in extra laps. Kyle has placed among the top five in seven of his eight starts at Kentucky and hasn’t finished lower than 12th.

Jimmie Johnson was my pick to click last week at Indianapolis. Unfortunately he had to withdraw after being diagnosed with COVID-19. The good news for JJ is that he didn’t lose. It’s been over three years and 110 races since Johnson last took the checkered flag. Even better news is that he’s been cleared to race opening at +2800.

It’s hard to overlook Keselowski with his win percentage of 33.3 at Kentucky. An additional three top-seven finishes just adds to the likelihood that he’ll be among the leaders on Sunday. And now that we’re more than halfway through the season we’re starting to see some rookies make a move. Four first-year drivers placed among the top-15 last week, led by Cole Custer’s fifth-place showing.

A number of people are high on Erik Jones this week, even though he failed to finish two of his last three starts. The one he did complete resulted in third-place at the Pocono 350. Jones placed among the top-seven in all three starts here with a best of third last year. There is a nice payout associated with Jones, however I think this is the week Kyle Busch breaks through taking the checkered flag.
