Brad Keselowski became the ninth different winner through 10 races thus far in the NASCAR Cup Series season when he won the GEICO 500 at Talladega last week.

Why is Hamlin the Favorite in the Buschy McBusch Race Odds at Kansas?

Typically, you will see the reigning champion of a race come in as the favorite in the following running. In this case, that would be Joey Logano, but Denny Hamlin won the previous two races before Logano and thus is the chalk at Kansas.

All that said, though, Hamlin has been a bit boom-or-bust at this track. In the last five runnings at Kansas, he has won two and finished outside the top 10 in the other three. It’s understandable why he’s the favorite but proceed with caution.

Hamlin’s stats in 2021

There’s a reason Hamlin is the current points leader and the main thing is his consistency. In 10 races, he has eight top-five finishes, while no other driver has more than four. As well, the No. 11 machine has led 737 laps and has won five stages. Kyle Larson is next in led laps with 379 and in stage wins with three.

As dominant as Hamlin has been, the checkered flag has been elusive, but you have to assume that victory is right around the corner.

NASCAR Predictions this week for the Buschy McBusch Race 400: Kansas Spring Race

We return to a 1.5-mile racetrack for the first time since Ryan Blaney conquered Atlanta Motor Speedway over a month ago. Short-track racing and the Talladega Superspeedway have made capping the racing a little tricky and hopefully we get back on track with one of my three drivers this week.

Denny Hamlin +500: Broken record alert! I have mentioned over the last two race previews that I will be taking Hamlin to win and finish in the top five nearly every week this season because of how consistent he has been. Although a first win has been elusive, it’s only a matter of time until he breaks through and I don’t want to miss out on that.

Kyle Larson +700: Larson was a popular pick earlier this season, especially at the one- and 1.5-mile tracks, including Las Vegas, where he picked up a victory. In the four races at those two track lengths, Larson has finished seventh or better with three top-five finishes, and Chevrolet cars won two of them. Although the No. 5 car has been outside the top 15 in three of the last four races, I anticipate a strong bounce-back at Kansas.

William Byron +1600: I’m taking a similar approach with Byron, especially since he and Larson are teammates. One week prior to Larson’s win at Las Vegas, Byron won at Homestead-Miami, another 1.5-mile track. Additionally, Byron is having a very consistent season. After finishing outside the top 20 in the first two races, he has eight straight top-10 finishes, including three top-five finishes, and he will be starting in second for this race.

Consistently in the top 10, starting outside pole and at a value of 16:1, Byron is a really strong play this weekend.
