The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs are only eight weeks off and Kyle Busch is your +250 favorite to lift the trophy in the end of the season. However, he trails reigning winner Joey Logano in the standings at this point and you can 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 at +900, and Denny Hamlin in +1600 to round out the top drivers on the oddsboard.
No Value On Harvick
Despite having the ability to find Kevin Harvick third in the Dragon Energy NASCAR Cup Series standings, I believe he is extremely overvalued at +600 to win the championship this year. He’s not the dominant force he has been over the last couple of years, failing to drive into victory lane yet this year and with only five top-five finishes and three point wins.
I really do believe Harvick will be eligible for a playoff place unless something catastrophic occurs over the next few weeks, but progressing throughout the playoff stages will prove hard when 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 last five races.
Busch Has Been Aggressive At Homestead-Miami
There’s not any question that Kyle Busch will be in the playoffs and will be up on the wheel seeking to advance through the phases. The Nevada native is tied together with Martin Truex Jr. for its season high in wins thus far, with each grabbing four thirds episodes. Additionally, he has the most top-five and top-10 finishes this season.
What makes Busch a good wager is that if it comes to crunch time in Homestead-Miami to win the tournament, he’s very strong. He has finished in the top five of the last seven runnings at that track, leading laps at each of the previous four, and he even won the 2015 race. I really don’t like to wager on a futures play with such low odds of +250, but it can be the best price you can get him at and he will definitely be in the search.
