The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs are only eight months off and Kyle Busch is your +250 favorite to lift the trophy in the end of the season. But he paths reigning winner Joey Logano in the standings at this point and you’re able to get Logano in +800.
Intertops has Busch as the favored at +250 followed by Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. in +600, Brad Keselowski and Logano at +800, Chase Elliott in +900, and Denny Hamlin in +1600 to round out the top drivers on the oddsboard.
No Value On Harvick
Despite being able to find Kevin Harvick third in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series standings, I believe he’s very overvalued at +600 to win the championship this year. He is not the dominant force he has been over the last few years, failing to push into victory lane yet this year and with just five top-five endings and three stage wins.
I really do believe Harvick will qualify for a playoff spot unless something catastrophic happens within the upcoming few weeks, but progressing throughout the playoff stages will probably prove hard if he can not find his mojo from this past year. That being said, keep an eye on him as the season progresses if he could get back into a groove, since he has finished on the podium in Homestead-Miami, the last race of this year, in four of the previous five races.
Busch Has Been Aggressive At Homestead-Miami
There is not any question that Kyle Busch will be in the playoffs and will probably be up on the wheel looking to advance through the phases. The Nevada native is tied together with Martin Truex Jr. for its season high in wins so far, with each grabbing four thirds episodes. Additionally, he has the very top-five and top-10 finishes this season.
What makes Busch a good wager is that if it comes to crunch time at Homestead-Miami to win the championship, he is quite powerful. He has finished in the top five of the previous seven runnings at this course, leading laps at each of the previous four, and he even won the 2015 race. I don’t like to wager on a futures play with such low likelihood of +250, but it can be the best price you can buy him he will definitely be in the search.
