NHL scores are taking center stage right now as the Stanley Cup finals are underway, but the Sprint Cup series is nearing their midseason as they head to Dover International Speedway for the FedEx 400 Benefitting Autism Speaks, and the “Monster Mile” is one of the most exciting tracks on the circuit. Here are five drivers you should consider laying a wager on.
Jimmie Johnson (+600): The No.48 driver won the All-Star race after taking the checkered flag at Darlington, and sportsbook reviews that he may have had a chance to challenge for the win in the Coca-Cola 600 if not for a late penalty that relegated him to 11th. Still, Johnson is the favorite here with four wins overall at Dover and two in the spring race, and he has a 12.9 finishing average in his last 10 starts in this event.
Kyle Busch (+800): The younger Busch brother has also won this race twice and has finished in the top five in five of his last seven starts in this particular race. He has finished in the top four in his last five races, including a win at Richmond, and players that use a pay per head service know that when the No.18 driver gets hot, he can win anywhere, anytime. No one has a better average in the Dover spring race than Busch, who has an average of 7.6.
Greg Biffle (+800): The points leader won this race back in 2005 and has an 11.3 average and six top-10s in nine starts in the Dover spring race. He finished 22nd in the All-Star race, but that wasn’t for points and then Biffle bounced back with a fourth-place run in the 600-mile race, which he dominated for the first part of the race until the sun went down and changed his car.
Matt Kenseth (+1000): Biffle’s teammate sits behind him in the standings and he has also fared well in the Dover spring race with two wins (2006 and last year), and sports betting online sharps have to consider him as he has finished in the top 10 in seven of the last eight races after a 10th-place run at Charlotte last weekend.
Martin Truex Jr. (+2500): The No.56 driver has won one race in his Sprint Cup career, and that came at in the Dover spring race in 2007. He has an average of 11.7 in six starts in this event and has been pretty consistent as he is in sixth place in the standings. Truex Jr. has been on the cusp of winning a few times this year and he seems to only need a break or two to go his way, so give him a look if you’re looking for a darkhorse in your online sportsbook.
