We head to Atlanta for the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 in the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series.
Here are five drivers to consider throwing on Sunday’s card.
Brad Keselowski, +700 - Despite not having a win yet this season, Brad Keselowski is off to a strong start with top-five finishes in three of his last four races. You should like Keselowski’s chances this week considering he’s won two of his last four trips to Atlanta and has finished no worse than ninth in each of his last six appearances. Keselowski was a runner-up in the 2018 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500. This is almost a must bet.
Kevin Harvick, +550 - Kevin Harvick is another driver due for his first win of the season, and he’s won two of his last three trips in Atlanta. You have to go back to 2014 the last time Harvick didn’t have a top-10 finish in Atlanta, and he has countless wins here in the Xfinity Series as well. Even as the top favorite, Harvick provides some value at this price.
Martin Truex Jr., +600 - Martin Truex Jr. is one of those drivers who strings wins together once he tastes victory lane, so keep an eye on him after taking Phoenix last week. Truex has also finished eighth or better in each of his last six trips in Atlanta, which includes averaging a 3.3 finish in his last three appearances. I like my chances of making six times my money with this bet.
Denny Hamlin, +750 - Denny Hamlin has been nibbling around victory lane from the start and has top-five finishes in four of the first five races. Those who pay attention know it won’t be long before Hamlin is doing doughnuts in the grass. Hamlin finished fifth here last year and has top-five finishes in four of his last nine trips to Atlanta. Of course, that doesn’t include a victory in the 2012 AdvoCare 500. I’ll throw Hamlin some love this week.
Kyle Busch, +1000 - Kyle Busch has been hit or miss the last couple of years and doesn’t provide the same value he once did, but he has endless experience at this track and has countless wins here in the Truck Series and Xfinity Series. Busch was also the runner-up in Atlanta last year and is averaging a fifth place finish in his last three trips overall. If you’re looking for a little more bang for your buck this weekend, Busch could be worth a look.
