Can Keselowski Cash In?

From the group of favorites, Brad Keselowski is worth a look. He’s finished in the top five in three of his last four starts overall, with the lone miss being a 16th. 16th isn’t great, of course, but he still led 47 laps in that race and has led laps in each of his last three outings. Keselowski’s average odds to win the NASCAR Cup Series are listed at +833.

Keselowski has a very good history in Atlanta as he’s been competitive in every single race since 2015. Over his last six starts at Atlanta Motor Speedway, he’s placed ninth, first, second, first, ninth, and ninth. He’s led laps in seven of the last eight races here. He should have a shot to pick up his first win of the season here.

Pick: Brad Keselowski (+750)

Harvick Has Healthy Results In Atlanta

A lot of people might be surprised to see Kevin Harvick in 10th place in the standings, but it’s not as if he’s had a terrible start to the season. Sure, he doesn’t have a win or a result in the top three, but he’s placed between sixth and four in all but one race this season. One thing that has been a tad concerning is he hasn’t led laps in the last four weeks.

YouTube video

Harvick tends to do very well in Atlanta. He’s won two of the last three races here and, he’s placed in the top nine in 12 of his last 14 starts. Don’t be surprised if he notches the win here, but a safer play might be to lay a little juice and put your action on the Top 10 prop for him.

Prediction: Kevin Harvick Top 10 (-345)

Continue Fade Elliott?

Chase Elliott’s odds become more attractive by the week, but for now, he’s a pass. The current NASCAR champ has had a shaky start to the year. He placed second at the Daytona 500 and fifth in Phoenix last week but has three results of 13th or worse sandwiched in between.

YouTube video

Elliott probably isn’t a bad bet for a Top 10 prop this week but trusting him to win outright feels like a bit of a stretch. In his five career starts in Atlanta, he has placed eighth, 19th, 10th, fifth, and eighth. The only time he led laps was last year when he had the pole position. Until he starts to heat up, he’s someone to pass on as an outright winner.
