If you read sportsbook reviews, you probably bet on sports and if you bet on NASCAR, you know that there are several types of tracks in the Sprint Cup series. New Hampshire Motor Speedway is a mile-long track that is very flat, while many are banked and it takes a certain kind of style to handle it and these five drivers have what it takes to come away with the checkered flag in the Lenox Industrial Tools 301 on Sunday.
Jimmie Johnson (+600): The five-time champ has three wins and 12 top-10s in his last 18 starts at New Hampshire, and two of those wins have come in the summer race as the track also hosts a race in the fall. Johnson’s 9.8 average over the last 10 years here is second among active drivers and he’ll be eager to get back on the track after a 36th-place finish at Daytona last week.
Denny Hamlin (+700): Players that work with price per head sportsbook services know that Hamlin is a wizard on flat courses and his 9.0 average in 12 starts is the best among active drivers, and that include a win in the summer of 2007. The No.11 driver is also great at places like Martinsville and Phoenix, and he’ll be a factor on Sunday.
Kevin Harvick (+1200): Harvick won here in the fall of 2006, and he has a solid 13.0 average here, which is sixth among current drivers. The No.29 driver hasn’t finished higher than 10th in the last five races, but he has been a little distracted as his wife was pregnant and recently gave birth to their first child, so he could have a bit of motivation this week, which makes him a decent sports betting pick.
Matt Kenseth (+2000): These seem like long online betting (make online betting wagers here) odds for Kenseth, who has 10 top-10s in 18 starts here and an average of 13.2. Many think that he is a lame-duck driver as Kenseth has announced that he’ll be leaving Roush-Fenway at the end of the season, but it hasn’t seemed to slow him down yet. The No.17 team is too proud to roll over and give up on their driver, and Kenseth certainly isn’t going to give any less than 100%. Besides, he’s the points leader and could be their best chance at a title.
Joey Logano (+3000): Logano is coming off a fourth-place run at Daytona and in seven starts at New Hampshire, he has a 16.6 average, which includes a win in 2009. Logano can still feel the heat of Kenseth, who is being rumored to take over his seat at Joe Gibbs Racing in the No.20, but the youngster has been pretty good lately and he could pay off for online sportsbook players.
