Logano, Keselowski Share Best Odds to Win Coke Zero Sugar 400

Adhering to a high-speed, rain-delayed race at Chicagoland Speedway, the Dragon Energy NASCAR Cup Series continues its pedal to the metal Strategy in Daytona International Speedway this Saturday night in the Coke Zero Sugar 400.

Alex Bowman earned his first Cup series victory last week and he’s +1800 chances to replicate, however, it is Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski with chances of +700 who top the oddsboard. Intertops has Logano and Keselowski since the favorites at +700 followed by Denny Hamlin in +1000, Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott and Kevin Harvick in +1100 and Kurt Busch, Ryan Blaney and Clint Bowyer at +1400 to round out the leading drivers on the oddsboard. Standout Stats Ford has won five of the last ten races at Daytona and Toyota has won three runnings during that span, including the last two in a row, while Chevrolet has just two victories. There has not been a repeat winner at this track since Jimmie Johnson did so in the two races at 2013. Denny Hamlin appears to become the most recent driver to perform it won the Daytona 500 in February. Only once over the past 17 races in Daytona has got the winner started on the pole and that was Dale Earnhardt Jr. at 2015. The typical starting position for the motorist who transported the checkered flag during that interval was 12.53. Alex Bowman (+1800) picked up the first checkered flag of his Cup series livelihood a week in Chicagoland and has had good qualifying rate at Daytona recently. He has started first or second in each of the last three runnings at this course, but has finished 10th or worse, so until he will come across exactly the same speed in the race, I’ll stay away. Logano (+700) has had better success throughout the Daytona 500 than he has in the midseason race in this track. In the 500, he’s an average finish position of 13.28, for example winning in 2015, but he’s an average finish position of 21.2 from the July race and has dropped in each of the last two runnings. Keselowski (+700) has had a series of bad luck at Daytona lately, with crashed in four of the past five races there, but six races back in this course, he drove to victory lane. He has five wins at Talladega, yet another restrictor-plate monitor, so that he knows how to compete in those races. Start looking for him to be at the search Saturday night. Kyle Busch (+1100) not as a favorite sounds like an automatic wager, but Daytona has gotten the better of him most of his career. Busch won the July race in 2008, marking the only time he has driven to victory lane at Daytona, and he has just three top-five endings there over the last 14 races, however he was the most runner-up in this season’s Daytona 500. I’ve been evaporating Kevin Harvick (+1100) all season long as he hadn’t shown evidence of his former leading self until last week. He seemed powerful at Chicagoland, leading 132 of the 267 laps, but ultimately finished 14th. Harvick has dropped in four of the five races at Daytona since switching to Ford at 2017 but he led multiple laps at three of these runnings. Assuming that he keeps his nose clean, this could be a good spot for Harvick. Read more: dallassportsrant.com
