Saturday night’s prime time event gets underway at 7:30 p.m. (ET) and it will be broadcast nationally on NBC Sports Network.
Martin Truex Jr. took the checkered flag at Darlington last Sunday night to post his second point-race victory of the year followed by Kevin Harvick and Kyle Larson.
The following is a look at my top favorite, contender and longshot to win this Saturday night’s race at Richmond based on betting odds provided by Top Bet.
2016 NASCAR Federated Auto Parts 400 Odds: The Favorite (odds of less than 10/1)
Kevin Harvick’s second-place run last week was his sixth finish of sixth or better in his last seven point-race events so you know that he has his No. 4 Chevrolet ready for another run at a Sprint Cup title.
So much so, that I am going with him to win this week as one of two +600 favorites along with Kyle Busch.
Harvick’s current form along with the fact that he has finished runner-up in his last two Sprint Cup races at Richmond adds some serious value to his current odds to win.
2016 NASCAR Federated Auto Parts 400 Odds: The Contender (odds from 10/1 to 19/1)
Another veteran driver that took a positive step to gaining some momentum for the 2016 Chase is Matt Kenseth with last week’s sixth-place finish at Darlington after placing outside the Top 10 in three of his last four point-race events.
His odds to take a huge step forward and win this week’s race driving the No. 20 Toyota have been set at +1000. Kenseth has already made his way to the Winner’s Circle twice this season; at Dover and more recently at New Hampshire.
As far as Richmond, he matched last season’s seventh-place finish in the first race here in 2015 with a seventh-place finish in the early race this year.
I am banking on this trend continuing considering that he won this race last year.
2016 NASCAR Federated Auto Parts 400 Odds: The Longshot (odds 20/1 or greater)
I had backed off of rookie Chase Elliott in recent weeks as a viable longshot given an extended rough patch that lasted for most of the summer, but I am back on the No. 24 Chevrolet’s bandwagon following a second-place finish at Michigan and a 10th-place finish last Sunday night.
He is holding down the 14th spot in the current Spring Cup standings with the most points of any driver without a victory this year, so this race boils down to a “win and you are in” opportunity.
Elliott was competitive in his first race at Richmond this season before fading to 12th in the final running order.
