Federated Auto Parts 400 Odds: Martin Truex Jr. Favored

After 65-races Kevin Harvick has his first win. The 46-year-old took the lead on the 166th lap and never gave it up. Michigan was a track that Harvick knew well winning it four times over his last six races there.

The NASCAR Cup Series now heads to Richmond, Virginia for the Federated Auto Parts 400 at the three-quarter-mile track. The pre-qualifying favorite is Martin Truex Jr. according to sportsbook Sportsbook at +500. Truex Jr. hasn’t won a race this year and sits just outside of the NASCAR playoff picture.

Why Is Martin Truex Jr The Favorite For Federated Auto Parts 400?

Again, Truex Jr hasn’t won a race in the season. He’s also sitting 19 points outside of the NASCAR playoff picture. He isn’t exactly one of the better drivers of the season, so why is he the favorite?

As we saw with Kevin Harvick last weekend, don’t count out history. Over the last six races at the Richmond Raceway Truex has won three times. In the three races he didn’t win, Truex finished second, fourth and then fifth.

So before qualifying settles the Sportsbook order for the race, Truex’s recent success in Richmond is why he sits at the top of the oddsboard.

Denny Hamlin (+700)

Hamlin hasn’t won on this track nearly as often as Truex Jr, but he’s got one win in Richmond and it came on the last time out on the three-quarter-mile track.

Since February 2019 (six races), only Martin Truex Jr has a better average finish than Hamlin’s 4.2. Over those six races, Hamlin has won it once, finished in the top 5 five times and lead for 18.9% of the laps run.

So when you think about the drivers in the best form not in general but on this specific track, Denny Hamlin is one of those guys.

At +700, a winning $100 bet on Hamlin would return a $700 profit as well as your original $100 wager for an $800 prize.

Chase Elliott (+1000)

His 12.7 average finish on short tracks like Richmond isn’t great but never count out Chase Elliott. Over his last eight races, Elliott’s average finish is 5.25. Don’t forget that he was challenging for the lead in Indianapolis before some contact forced him back down the standings.

Chase Elliott is the best driver in NASCAR’s cup series so again, don’t count him out of this one just because he doesn’t always do that well on short tracks.

The number 9 car is the favorite to win the NASCAR Cup Series. Elliott currently holds +400 odds to win the NASCAR championship.
