2016 Quaker State 400 Betting Odds + Preview
Gamblers…ready for NASCAR Quaker State 400 Odds betting? For the second week in a row NASCAR’s Sprint Cup series will occupy a prime time spot on Saturday night with the running of this year’s Quaker State 400 presented by Advance Auto Parts.
Race: Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway
Date: Saturday, July 9
Time: 7:30 p.m. (ET)
All the action from Kentucky Speedway is set to get underway at 7:30 p.m. (ET) and the race will be broadcast nationally on NBC.
For the third time this season Brad Keselowski has made his way to the Winner’s Circle in a Sprint Cup point race with a victory last Saturday night at Daytona.
Another three-time winner this year Kyle Busch was next in second place followed by Trevor Bayne in third.
The following is a look at my top favorite, contender and longshot to win this Saturday night’s race at Kentucky based on betting odds provided by TopBet.
NASCAR Quaker State 400 Odds: The Favorite (odd of less than 10/1)
You almost have to go with Kyle Busch as a +600 favorite this week given everything he brings to the table in this race.
He is coming off his 10th Top 5 finish of the season through 17 point race events and the No. 18 Toyota has already led 700 laps this year.
The main reason why you have to go with Busch to win is an amazing track record at Kentucky.
There has only been five previous Sprint Cup events at this track and he has won twice (2011 and 2015) while working his way into the top 10 in the other three events.
Overall, his average finishing position through those five races is a stellar 3.8.
NASCAR Quaker State 400 Odds: The Contender (odds from 10/1 to 19/1)
Another driver I really like this week at a bit longer odds is Matt Kenseth at +1000 to win.
The No. 20 Toyota has had its issues the past three races with runs outside the Top 10 list, but this slide followed a string of four-straight runs of seventh or better including a victory at Dover that should ensure this team a spot in the Chase.
When it comes to racing at Kentucky, Kenseth is another driver that has had some great success at this track with an average finishing position of 4.6 including a victory here in 2013.
NASCAR Quaker State 400 Odds: The Longshot (odds 20/1 or greater)
Sometimes when you are picking longshots it makes sense to really stretch the odds and that is exactly what I am doing this week by going with Ryan Newman at +8000 to win.
After remaining highly competitive right through the Chase in his past few seasons, he is struggling this year with just five runs inside the top 10.
Last week at Daytona, the No. 31 Chevrolet slipped to 18th to fall to 14th in the current Sprint Cup standings with a total of 425 points.
The reason Newman jumped out at me this week was a few decent runs at Kentucky including a third-place finish in 2014.
