After a wild start to the season with a wreck-filled Daytona 500, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series heads to Atlanta Motor Speedway for the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500. Denny Hamlin drove to victory lane last week in Florida and is +1600 to repeat this weekend. However, it is Kevin Harvick at +400 who is the favorite to grab his first checkered flag of 2019.
Sportsbook has Harvick on top of the oddsboard at +400 followed by Joey Logano and Kyle Busch at +600, and Brad Keselowski, Kyle Larson and Martin Truex Jr. at +800 to round out the top odds for the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500.
My Best Bet for the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500
Brad Keselowski +800
Keselowski tends to perform well on high-speed 1.5-mile tracks, including eight combined wins at Las Vegas, Chicagoland and Kentucky, each of which fits that bill. The Michigan native finished first at Atlanta two years ago and second last year and has finished inside the top 10 in 60 percent of his races there at the Monster Energy Cup level. Fords have won the last two races at this track and I think this trend continues this year.
