Following the high-speed, 1.5-mile quad-oval of Texas Motor Speedway, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series heads to the 0.5-mile short track of Bristol Motor Speedway. Just two weeks following another short track in Martinsville, tempers could be short this week and oddsmakers have Kyle Busch keeping his nose clean as a +260 favorite.
Sportsbook has Busch as the favorite at +260 followed by Kyle Larson at +700, Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano at +800, and Kevin Harvick and Ryan Blaney at +1200 to round out the top drivers on the oddsboard.
My Best Bet for the Food City 500
Kyle Busch (+260)
Not an exciting pick this week, but the Nevada native has won 25.9 percent of his 27 career starts at Bristol and has finished inside the top five in 37.0 percent of those appearances. Busch also has two wins already this season to go along with four stage wins. Lastly, he has led 100 or more laps at this track in four of the last seven runnings.
