The favorites

Excellent mid-tier worth

Christopher Bell, +5000

Chris Buescher, +12500

Bell won at the Daytona roadway course and had a hard time at Homestead. That’s why his chances are so high here. He deserves a flier if you wish to look beyond William Byron and his Hendrick colleague Alex Bowman. They both have alluring chances at +2500.

Buescher might enter the long-shot classification. However it deserves watching on him this weekend after he led 57 laps at Homestead. It’s rarely that you get such long chances on a motorist who was legally performing at the front of the field the week previously at a track with comparable attributes.

Do not wager these motorists

Matt DiBenedetto, +3000

Erik Jones, +12500

DiBenedetto is having a hard time at the minute. He has simply 14 points through 4 races and hasn’t end up much better than 28th up until now this season. He was 2nd at Las Vegas in the 2020 spring race however it’s tough to see that occurring once again a the minute. Wait to see if DiBenedetto turns his season around prior to banking on him to win.

Jones is likewise in the middle of a bad start. He’s ended up outside the leading 25 in 2 of the very first 3 races of the season and Richard Petty Motorsports hasn’t been frequently competitive at 1.5-mile tracks just recently.

Searching For a long shot?

Ross Chastain, +15000

Chastain has actually ended up 39th and 17th given that he was seventh in the Daytona 500. However he’s without a doubt the very best bet for a flier. His teammate, Kurt Busch, won the Las Vegas fall race a year ago and Chastain has — by far — the finest devices of any of the long shots. He’s most likely not going to win, however he’s likewise the only chauffeur with long chances who has a group efficient in winning without it being an overall upset.
