Nascar Sylvania 300 Gambling Picks/Preview

2009 Sylvania 300 Predictions – Betting Preview + Picks + Odds

Race: The Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway
Date: Sunday, September 20, 2009
Time: 2:15 PM EST (scheduled green flag)
TV: 2:00 PM EST on ABC

Preview: The fall Cup race at Loudon represents an ending and a beginning: NASCAR’s ‘regular’ 26-race season ended last week after Richmond and this Sunday’s race marks the start of the Chase for the Championship in earnest, a 10-race points battle between the series’ top-12 drivers for the 2009 title. Loudon is a challenging, flat, 1.058-mile track, and the last four races here have each been won by a different manufacturer. It’s also worth noting that two of the last three Loudon races have had rain-shortened finishes.

Safe Bets:

1. Denny Hamlin (+400): Hamlin won the summer race here in 2007 and has the best average finish among active drivers – an 8.3 in seven races with no finish lower than 15th. Hamlin is coming off a dominating performance at Richmond and the No. 11 team should be able to carry some of that momentum into New Hampshire.

2. Jimmie Johnson (+500): Over the course of the last five Loudon races, Johnson has accumulated more points than any other driver. He swept the season here in 2003 and finished second in this race last year. The No. 48 team is known for its tendency to turn things up a notch once the Chase begins.

Dark Horse:

1. Jeff Burton (+2500): It hasn’t been a stellar year for Richard Childress Racing, with none of their drivers making the Chase field. Burton leads all drivers in wins at Loudon with four, and now, without the pressure of points positioning, he really has nothing to lose in going for wins or testing new things with an eye toward next year.

Summary: Both Busch brothers qualified in the top-10 and should not be overlooked in your wagering decisions. There was rain at the track Friday, but the forecast for Saturday and Sunday calls for sunny skies.
