NASCAR Finale at Homestead
Well my friends…the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series is coming to a close. With that being said, who will win the finale? The talk of the weekend will be the Final Four championship contenders. I want to focus on those who can place bets on the race in West Virginia, Nevada, or New Jersey for example.
For the analytical fiend, you will look to Kevin Harvick as his odds are 5/2 to win the finale, with that being said you might as well parlay the race and championship which could increase your $1 to a meager $4.50 return according to Bovada. Put $100 and you could profit $350. Why Harvick you say? Well…his average finish in Miami is 6.8 with 17 starts, that is pretty solid. The most talented driver at the track in my opinion is Kyle Larson, he has led 21% of his laps at the track and has 3 top 5’s in 5 starts. His odds are 13/4 which leads to a $3.25 return. If you want to skip that nice steak dinner, pop $30 dollars on him.
My sleeper pick for the race is William Byron. His 2018 rookie season has been mediocre at best, but he did have a solid 9th place finish last week at Phoenix. He also won at Homestead in 2016 at the Truck Series finale. If you are feeling froggy, take Byron at 200/1. Tony Stewart won here in his 1999 rookie season, why can’t Byron in Hendrick equipment?
