2020-05-28 19:00:00 EDT
It feels like we’re getting a race every day, which is great to scratch our sports itch and is even better for bettors looking to make some cash. This Wednesday we continue with the Alsco Uniforms 500 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. This will be the final race in North Carolina before we turn our attention to Bristol in a few days.
Here are five drivers to consider throwing on this card.
Brad Keselowski, +1000 – Brad Keselowski just won the first race a couple days ago at the Charlotte Motor Speedway and is no stranger to success on this track in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. In five of his last nine appearances at this track in the NASCAR Cup Series, Keselowski has finished seventh or better. Keselowski hasn’t won back-to-back races since 2018, but his history at this track makes these odds worth a look.
Kevin Harvick, +800 – Kevin Harvick is a must play these days simply because he’s finished fifth or better in each of his last four races. Harvick has finished no worse than ninth in his last 12 races overall. Harvick finished fifth in his last trip at this track and has top-10 finishes in 13 of his last 15 appearances at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Harvick is an automatic play this week.
Ryan Blaney, +1600 – These are solid odds for Ryan Blaney, who has struggled for much of the young season but is coming off a third place finish. Blaney is averaging a finish of 5.5 in his last two trips to the Charlotte Motor Speedway and has finished eighth or better in four of his last six trips, which includes a victory in the 2018 Bank of America Roval 400. This is a strong dark horse play.
Kyle Busch, +650 – Kyle Busch has had terrific success at the Charlotte Motor Speedway and is getting even more reps with him participating in Tuesday’s Lottery 200. As for the NASCAR Cup Series, Busch finished fourth in the first trip here and has finished sixth or better in five of his last eight trips here overall, which includes a victory in the 2018 Coca-Cola 600. Busch could be burning himself out with all this driving, but his track record in North Carolina is highly consistent. I’ll take these odds.
Erik Jones, +1800 – Erik Jones doesn’t have the success at the Charlotte Motor Speedway like other drivers, but he’s quietly driving a hot car at the moment and is averaging an eighth place finish in his last three events. While drivers are still getting adjusted to this new schedule and knocking the rust off, a surprise victory here and there isn’t going to surprise anybody. A win from Jones certainly isn’t out of the question and these odds are tempting.
