Drydene 400 Odds: Truex Jr. Holds Shortest Odds

Martin Truex Jr. is the favorite in the Drydene 400 odds at Dover.

Through 12 races in the NASCAR Cup Series schedule, only one driver has multiple wins. That driver is Martin Truex Jr., who picked up his third checkered flag of the season last week at Darlington. Truex will look to continue his winning ways as he is the favorite in the Drydene 400 odds for this week’s race at Dover International Speedway.

Online sportsbook Bovada has released Drydene 400 odds for the Dover race with Truex favored at +320. He is followed closely by Kyle Larson at +450, Denny Hamlin at +600, Kevin Harvick at +650 and Kyle Busch at +750 to round out the top five drivers on the oddsboard.

Why is Truex Jr. the Favorite in the Drydene 400 Odds at Dover?

Typically, you will see the reigning champion in the previous running at a track be the favorite in the following race there. That isn’t the case this weekend, but Truex is definitely worthy of being the chalk as he won the spring race in 2019 and has finished second in each of the last three races at Dover.

Furthermore, he has eight top-five finishes in the last nine runnings with two victories over that span. Lastly, Truex has led at least one lap in eight of the last 12 races at Dover and always seems to find himself near the front.

Truex Jr. Stats in 2021

As I mentioned off the top, only one driver in the NASCAR Cup Series has more than one victory this year and that’s Truex with three. He is second in the standings and is now the favorite in  NASCAR Cup championship odds.

Additionally, he has led the second-most laps and has the second-most top-five finishes, including four podium finishes.

NASCAR Predictions this week for the Drydene 400: Dover Race

Once again, our three picks from last week finished within the top six but failed to find victory lane – good if you played those drivers to finish inside the top five, bad if you played them solely to win outright. Regardless, here are my three Drydene 400 predictions for this weekend.

Kyle Larson +450: Larson didn’t get to run at Dover last year as he was under suspension, but the last time he competed there, he led 154 of 400 laps and picked up the victory. Among his 12 career starts at the track, he has six top-five finishes, including five podium finishes. Additionally, Larson has been very fast at the one-mile and 1.5-mile tracks this season and I like him to be strong again.

Denny Hamlin +600: It’s a little surprising to see Hamlin third on the oddsboard after being the chalk for the majority of the season. He has been extremely consistent with nine top-five finishes (no other driver has more than five). He won the first race at Dover last season and will be starting on the outside of row 1 for this weekend’s running. As always, I will be backing Hamlin frequently this season.

Chase Elliott +900: The reigning champion has been a little slow out of the gate with just four top-five finishes through 12 races, but that includes two second-place finishes. Elliott has crashed in two of the last three runnings at Dover, but in 10 career starts there, he has seven top-five finishes with one win and four podium finishes.
