Following a week off, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series is back in action as they put the pedal to the metal at Talladega Superspeedway for the GEICO 500. When the Cup series was last in action, it was Martin Truex Jr. driving to victory lane at Richmond Raceway and he has odds of +800 to repeat, but it is Kyle Busch at +275 who is favored to win at Talladega.
Sportsbook has Busch at +275 followed by Kevin Harvick at +650, Joey Logano at +700, Brad Keselowski at +750, Martin Truex Jr. at +800, Denny Hamlin and Ryan Blaney at +1200, Chase Elliott at +1400, Kyle Larson at +2000 and Jimmie Johnson at +2200 to round out the top 10 drivers on the oddsboard.
My Best Bet for the GEICO 500
Joey Logano +700
The Connecticut native has been awfully competitive this season, landing in the top 10 in six of the nine races thus far, including one trip to victory lane among five top-five finishes. Fords have been dominant at Talladega and Logano almost always finds himself leading the pack at some point during races at the superspeedway.
