2019 Drydene 400 Odds, Preview & Prediction

Posted by Derrick Harper on October 4, 2019 in

What started with 16 racers has now been cut to 12 in the Monster Energy Series NASCAR playoffs. After last week’s race, Ryan Newman, Aric Almiroal, Kurt Busch, and Erik Jones were all eliminated from contention. The first leg of the round of 12 will take place at the Dover International Speedway, as the drivers enter the Drydene 400. With next week’s race taking place at the tough Talladega Raceway, the drivers will be going all out to win this race so that they automatically qualify for the next round.

Let’s preview some of the drivers who arrive as NASCAR Betting favorites to take home the checkered flag in the 2019 Drydene 400.

2019 Drydene 400 Odds, Preview & Prediction

Martin Truex Jr.

Truex has been the favorite in many of this year’s races. Truex won the first two playoff races, but then struggled at Charlotte, as he finished in 9th place. Truex has won two of his last six races at the “Monster Mile”, including the last race ran here in May. In the three of the other four starts, he finished in the top five. Truex will have a great shot at ending up in victory lane.

Chase Elliott

Chase loves to race at Dover. Elliott has finished in the top five in six of his seven starts at the “Monster Mile”. Elliott won this race last season. A victory here would be huge for his championship aspirations. Kyle LarsonLarson also loves to run at Dover. In his last ten races here, he has eight top ten finishes. He finished in third at Dover in May. Larson has raced well since midway through the season, so he hopes his momentum continues and keeps him going throughout the playoffs.

Kevin Harvick

Harvick only trails Jimmy Johnson in laps led among active drivers at Dover. In his last ten races at Dover, he has won twice and led over 1,000 laps. He has had a great 2019, and he’ll look to continue his stellar racing.Kyle BuschWith six top ten finishes in his last ten starts, Busch has had some good results at Dover. He has three career wins at the “Monster Mile”. He has struggled as of late, so if he wants to advance to the next round, he’s going to need something good to happen here.

Brad Keselowski

Keselowski hasn’t won at Dover since 2012. He has led plenty of laps at Dover, so he knows how to manage the track. In May’s race, he finished in 12th place. He knows this track well, so he will know what to do to come out on top.

Daniel Suarez

Suarez is still relatively unknown. He has come on strong this year. Suarez has only ran five races at Dover, but he has never finished lower than 11th. His team has shown potential, but they have been too inconsistent. If they can get off to a good start, and can be at or near the top late in the race, Suarez and his team have a great shot at ending up in victory lane.
