After a nine day layoff, the NASCAR Cup Series is back to work, as the drivers and their crews head to Loudon, New Hampshire and the New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301. The track at New Hampshire is a flat, 1-mile oval, and passing here can be quite challenging. Drivers will look to get to the front of the field early, and will look to stay there, as coming from behind could prove to be quite difficult. Let’s take a look at some of the favorites to take home the checkered flag in the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 so you can bet on their NASCAR odds.
NASCAR – Foxwoods Resort Casino 301
Kevin Harvick +400
Until someone knocks him off of his throne, Harvick will be favored to win most of, if not all of the races that he enters. Harvick has won in his last two trips to New Hampshire, so naturally, he’s the favorite to win this Sunday. He has been in the top-five in seven of the last nine races he’s started at New Hampshire. Look for more good things from Harvick on Sunday.
Denny Hamlin +450
Hamlin has the momentum, as he’s coming off of a victory last Thursday at Kansas. Hamlin also has a good history at New Hampshire, as he won here in 2017, and has finished in the top five in two out of his last four appearances. With eight straight top-15 finishes, Hamlin is always considered a threat to take home the checkered flag.
Kyle Busch +700
After a dismal stretch, Busch has come back to life in the last two races. Busch who is winless in 2020, has traditionally raced well at New Hampshire. Busch has three top-fives and three victories in the NASCAR Cup Series races here.
Martin Truex Jr. +800
In his last four races in New Hampshire, Truex has finished in the top 10 all four times, with three of those being top-five finishes. He has 10 top-10 finishes on the season, and will be in line to make it 11 on Sunday.
Ryan Blaney +800
In his last two starts here, he has finished in fourth and seventh place. Combine that with eight top-10 finishes on the season, and you have a contender to take home the victory on Sunday. Blaney has always raced well at New Hampshire, so look for him to continue that trend this weekend.
Erik Jones +3,300
Jones is definitely a long shot on Sunday, but at these odds, he could earn you a hefty profit. In a limited number of starts here, he has two top-10 finishes in his last three starts, including a third place finish last season. Jones’s history at New Hampshire makes him a trendy pick to make you some money.
Matt DiBenedetto +5,500
Matt has a history of racing well on one mile tracks. He finished fifth here last year, and finished 7th at Martinsville earlier this season. One mile tracks seem to be good to him, so could he pull off the huge upset and take home the victory on Sunday? Even if he doesn’t win, we look for him to finish in the top 15.
