The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series shifts into high gear this weekend at Richmond Raceway in Virginia and Kyle Busch is the betting favorite at +350 to win his third race in a row.
Busch tops the oddsboard at Sportsbook for a third straight week and is followed by Kevin Harvick at +450, Denny Hamlin at +500, Martin Truex Jr. at +650, Kyle Larson at +725, Brad Keselowski, Chase Elliott and Joey Logano at +1150, and Clint Bowyer and Ryan Blaney at +1250 to round out the top 10.
Kyle Busch can take a huge Lead in Standings with the win
Busch currently sits at 365 points in the Monster Energy Cup standings with Joey Logano in second at 306 points. Busch will try to complete the hat trick of winning three races in a row, which was also done by Kevin Harvick earlier in the season.
Why Busch is the favorite is his history at this track. The driver of the No. 18 Toyota Camry took the checkered flag in this race for four years in a row (2009-2012) and while his odds might not be sexy, his track record at Richmond Raceway speaks for itself.
Can Joey Logano be a repeat Sportsbook in Richmond?
Logano took the top spot on the podium at last year’s Toyota Owners 400 and in 2014. A third career win at Richmond Raceway could go a long way in Logano’s quest to win his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup and at +1150, he offers amazing odds considering his history. No. 22 has been the most consistent driver on the circuit this season with seven top-10 finishes and has only finished outside the top 10 once – at the TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway.
