5 Star Pick To Win At Daytona: Kevin Harvick, 12/1

Harvick started seventeenth at the Toyota/Save Mart 350 this past weekend. He ended up finishing fourth. What NASCAR handicappers really have to like is how Harvick has secured a Top 10 starting position in 8 out of the last 10 Sprint Cup Races.

4 Star Pick To Win At Daytona:  Jimmie Johnson, 10/1

Johnson brings good form to the Coke Zero 400 this Sunday. He won the FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speak, finished third in the Axalta ‘We Paint Winners’ 400, and sixth at the Toyota Save Mart 350. The only race in which he didn’t sneak into the Top 10 in the past 4 weeks was the Quicken Loans 400 where he finished nineteenth.

Johnson’s record at Dayton is very good. Johnson’s won 3 times with 10 total Top 5 finishes from 27 races. The average start is in the Top 10 at 9.3. While the average finish is 17.48, Johnson’s been driving so well that it’s hard to see him not making a run for the win in the last 10 laps on Sunday.

3 Star Pick To Win At Daytona: Dale Earnhardt Jr, 8/1

The early favorite to win the Coke Zero 400 is Dale Jr. It makes sense since Hendrick Motorsports and Dale are really starting to heat up. Dale Jr’s recorded 5 Top 10 finishes from his last 6 races. He’s recorded 4Top 5 finishes from those 5 Top 5 finishes.

Now, he races at a place where he’s had a ton of success. From 31 races at Daytona, Dale Jr. has 12 Top 5 finishes and 3 wins. His average start is 10.81 while his average finish is 13.06.  The favorite has a big shot.
