NASCAR drivers will run on the 1.058-mile speedway course when the flag drops for the Sunday-afternoon race beginning around 3:00 pm ET.

Ryan Blaney Is a Co-Favorite Again at New Hampshire

Blaney is a co-favorite according to Barstool at +1000 for this week’s New Hampshire race. He has won the Spring race and has three top-five results in his last five appearances. The Team Penske driver has led 7.7% of the laps but he seems to be in the right position at the right time on this track. Considering how close the No. 12 Ford has come to victory this year, Blaney has to get one of these. He has two top-five results in his last three races at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Currently, Blaney stands as a co-favorite everywhere else too and is +600 at Caesars. Kyle Busch is listed as another co-favorite at Caesars at +600. Some interesting odds exist on Caesars Sportsbook, as even Chase Elliott is +700. Kevin Harvick is just +1500 given his track results, that is not a surprise. Ford has won the last four races here.

Now, what occurs Sunday afternoon in Loudon?

Ryan Blaney keeps getting closer and is at least worth a look somewhere along with Logano and Harvick from Ford.

Can Kevin Harvick Sneak One at Loudon?

Sports bettors like Kevin Harvick here and he is a nice long shot. The Stewart Haas Racing driver is not high in the NASCAR Cup Series odds. Harvick is 11th in points while looking for a win. Furthermore, he has won recently in 2018 and 2019 and has the best average finish of 4.0 in the past three races

Now, could Aric Almirola sneak in? That is also possible given he won last year. Ride the trends on Harvick and company.

Ambetter 301 Predictions & Picks

This oval track had that strange Kyle Busch mishap last year with the “rain shower”.

The weather expects to be very warm on Sunday with temperatures rising well into the 80s. The last thing to keep an eye on is drivers like Kurt Busch and even Denny Hamlin. Their ability to drive fast at New Hampshire Motor Speedway should not be a surprise.

Finally, for top-ten picks, there are Tyler Reddick and Ross Chastain. There will be more picks closer to Sunday’s race after qualifying on Saturday. The big question remains do longer shots get a boost?

The stage format is 75-110-116 for laps.

Here are our best bets:

  • Top Pick: Kyle Busch to Win (+700)
  • Other Contenders: Chase Elliott (+1000), Joey Logano (+700), Ryan Blaney (+700)
  • More shots:  Kevin Harvick (+2000), Aric Almirola (+2500), Kurt Busch (+3000)
