The next event in the Sprint Cup series is this Saturday, April 26th and I’m here with my favorite NASCAR Toyota Owners 400 betting tips so you’re as prepared as possible for the track this weekend.
NASCAR Toyota Owners 400 Betting Tips
Is Kevin Harvick a lock At +600 to win the NASCAR Toyota Owners 400?
Leave it to Harvick to blow up one of the most fun NASCAR betting trends of the year. Up until the Bojangles Southern 500, no driver had two wins in the 2014 season. But after a dominant performance at Darlington that was motivated by his desire for a career grand slam, Harvick looks like the best driver on the track. And as far as NASCAR Toyota Owners 400 betting tips go, Harvick is also the defending champ at this particular event. Basically, bet your heart out here.
Will Kyle Busch be a solid bet at +600 to win the NASCAR Toyota Owners 400?
Harvick may be the defending champ, but Kyle Busch has been the most dominant active driver at this track winning four straight Toyota Owners 400 races between 2009 and 2012. The 400 is one of Busch’s favorite distances and his last win in the Sprint Cup series came at the 2014 Auto Club 400 at Fontana. It’s hard not to like Kyle Busch at this event, considering his success at this specific event and his overall love of this distance
Denny Hamlin is a sentimental bet +700 to win the NASCAR Toyota Owners 400
Hamlin just feels due doesn’t he? After winning the Sprint Unlimited, and following a second-place finish at the Daytona 500, Hamlin hasn’t exactly had a season to remember. There’s a part of me that really wants to tout him for this race, but one my NASCAR Toyota Owners 400 betting tips is to stay away from Hamlin’s 7-to-1 odds. He’s more of a sentimental play than a legitimate favorite. He has just two top-10 finishes this season in the Sprit Cup Series.
Can Jimmie Johnson pull out a win at the NASCAR Toyota Owners 400 at +700?
Johnson is almost always creeping around and has five top-10 finishes this season in the Sprint Cup Series. He finished 5th at Daytona, 6th at Phoenix and Las Vegas, 2nd at the STP 500 and 3rd at Darlington. Though he won this event in 2007, it hasn’t been his race for the last five seasons. He’ll be a surefire top-10 finisher as he gobbles up some delicious series points, but I wouldn’t take him to win the race in my NASCAR Toyota Owners 400 betting tips.
Can Bard Keselowski pull out another win?
Ever since Keselowski burned the handicappers at Las Vegas with a stunning upset victory as a longshot, they’ve been listing him as one of the favorites. The problem is that he hasn’t finished near the top since so I wouldn’t bother here either.
Is Jeff Gordon a solid bet +1000 to win the NASCAR Toyota Owners 400?
The savvy veteran is doing just enough to stay at the top fo the leaderboard in the Sprint Cup Series…without having to win a race. Gordon isn’t a bad bet by any stretch of the imagination, especially after finishing 2nd at Texas and 7th at Darlington but one of my NASCAR Toyota Owners 400 betting tips is to steer clear of Gordon. He’s point hunting and the checkered flag doesn’t seem to have too much appeal to him these days.
Who in the rest of the FIELD can win the NASCAR Toyota Owners 400?
As for the rest of my favorite bets, I would take a look at Matt Kenseth (+1200) and Greg Biffle (+4000). There are other big names like Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Joey Logano, but I’m not convinced that they have the closing ability to win this short sprint. As is always the case, there are a lot of big names out there but only a few worth backing.
My final NASCAR Toyota Owners 400 betting tips before the race ar to pick between Harvick and Busch, and then take a shot at either Biffle or Kenseth as your “longshot” plays.
