NASCAR Pennsylvania 400 Expert Betting Picks

Posted by Ted Merrick on July 27, 2016 in

What a big weekend for NASCAR, as the Sprint Cup heads to Long Pond, Pennsylvania for the Pennsylvania 400. This is the last of six races until the Chase, upcoming later this summer. The NASCAR teams are preparing for the postseason. The Tricky Triangle is expected to be a little less tricky this coming Sunday. There are some familiar names at the top of the betting board for this event. Let’s take a look at our NASCAR odds for the Pennsylvania 400.

Here’s a Closer Look at the NASCAR Pennsylvania 400 Expert Betting Picks

This certainly is going to be difficult to predict, and our predictions are certainly not without flaw, but we take into consideration, previous results and needs to get into playoff contention. Looking at the track, the Joe Gibbs Racing Cars should be a few of the cars to beat on Sunday, but track position will likely prove to be very important. At Pocono, 7 out of the 10 cars that started in the Top 10, finished in the Top 10. Let’s look at a few of the top drivers for this event:

Matt Kenseth

Matt Kenseth has been the best driver on flat tracks this season. He came in 7th in his last race at Pocono, and was 2nd at Indianapolis last week. Kenseth has three straight Top 10 finishes at Pocono, including a win last season. He is part of the Joe Gibbs Racing team, and they have had the fastest cars on the track, and should do it again for this race. Matt Kenseth is listed at 8-1 to win Pennsylvania 400.

Kevin Harvick

Kevin Harvick is also a good pick, because he shows up pretty much every time there is a race. His problem has been mistakes when heading to the pits. He has had a top 10 position in the last three flat tracks, and his car is fast enough to win this event. If his pit crew can avoid screwing things up for him, he should easily finish in the Top 5, and maybe win this event. You can bet Kevin Harvick at 6-1 odds.

Brad Keselowski

Brad Keselowski has slowed down a little bit. But, that’s no surprise, because it was hard to back up his wins at Daytona and Kentucky. He is one of the best at saving fuel, and this track has been good to him lately. Keselowski finished inside the Top 3 the last two times he was at Pocono. He should finish inside the Top 5 as well. You can bet Brad Keselowski at 10-1 odds to win the Pennsylvania 400.

Kurt Busch

Kurt Busch was the winner at Pocono just two months ago. He seems to have the Tricky Triangle figured out for the most part. He seems to have a pit crew that has improved greatly over the past months. He finished four of the last five races inside the Top 5. Kurt Busch is one of the favorites to win this event. You can bet Kurt Busch to win this event at 12-1.

Joey Logano

We also put Joey Logano in the mix when it comes to Sprint Cup Series races. This race on Sunday may come down to saving fuel, and Logano has done that pretty well as of late. The #22 car has enough horsepower to remain at the front of the pack. Look for him to continue his impressive resume, which includes three of the last four races in the Top 5. You can wager on Joey Logano at 10-1 odds to win this event.

In the end, it’s time to make a bet at MyBookie for this event. We are going to go outside the box a little bit here and take a bit of an underdog. Our bet to win the Pennsylvania 400 is going to be Carl Edwards. Edwards is able to be bet on to win the race at 8-1. We told you a Joe Gibbs Racing team member would win this event, and Carl Edwards is just that.

Best of luck, and enjoy the race!
