Kyle Busch Sits atop the Oddsboard to win the GEICO 500

Following a week off, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series is back in action Because 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 chances of +800 to repeat, but it is Kyle Busch in +275 who’s favored to win at Talladega.
BetOnline has Busch at +275 followed by Kevin Harvick at +650, Joey Logano in +700, Brad Keselowski in +750, Martin Truex Jr. in +800, Denny Hamlin and Ryan Blaney at +1200, Chase Elliott at +1400, Kyle Larson in +2000 and Jimmie Johnson in +2200 to round out the top 10 drivers around the oddsboard.
Standout Stats
Ford has been notable at Talladega lately, winning 10 of the last 13 races there, including the last seven in a row.
The pole sitter has only won once in the previous 23 races but the winner has qualified in the top 10 in 12 of the last 18.
Stay away from Kyle Busch this weekend. Although he’s the points leader and contains a season-high three wins this year, Talladega has not been a track of achievement for its Nevada native. Busch won the spring race there in 2008 and hasn’t returned to victory lane since and he has finished outside the top 10 in seven of the previous nine runnings in the superspeedway.
Joey Logano has been quite aggressive at the superspeedway recently, picking up three checkered flags within the previous seven races, also contains five top-five endings over that interval. Additionally, he has directed more or 20 laps in five of the past ten runnings.
Brad Keselowski was a hit-or-miss driver as soon as the Cup series heads to Talladega as he has won five of his 20 professional races there and has led laps in each of the last six runnings in the 2.66-mile track. But he has finished 15th or worse in seven of the past 12 races at the superspeedway as well.
This week, kevin Harvick might have some worth. I’ve been staying away from this year as he has not been the dominant driver he had been last year, but he’s managed to amass two stage wins and has four top-five finishes. Harvick led a career-high 46 laps at Talladega last September and qualified on the pole in the April race. However, he has finished outside of the top 15 in five of the last seven runnings in the superspeedway and hasn’t driven to victory lane there since 2010.
My Best Bet for your GEICO 500
Joey Logano +700
The Connecticut native was awfully competitive this season, landing in the top 10 in six of the nine races so far, including one trip to victory lane one of five top-five finishes. Fords are dominant at Talladega and Logano almost constantly finds himself leading the pack at some point during races at the superspeedway.
