Harvick - 4/1
Not a fan of going against the 22, but Harvick owns this place and Larson is primed to win a bunch this year.
Solid start to the season with a Duel win and an Xfinity win yesterday. Not happy with my numbers for today's race, but that is what happens when you wait.
88 - 6/1 - Horrible number, but I think he wins handily today.
48- 9/1 - Possible overreaction to the Duels, but it looks like he has a bad fast car. Hard to tell since the majority of the fast cars were in the other Duel.
4 - 12/1 - This will depend on whether or not he drops to the back to just ride around. I think he needs to stay near the front, even in the early stages of the race.
16 top 3 - 10/1 - Ever notice this guy is always lurking at the 500? Don't think he has the team to get him to the front, but I think he can linger around the top spots long enough to maybe pull off a top 3 finish.
42 top 3 10/1 - I think he wins multiple races this season, but not today. He will be in the mix just about every weekend in my opinion. Kyle Busch being out is going to open the door for this kid in both series.
Might look at one or two more top 3's, but I am set on the 88 winning today.
Plus money after the Duels, now looking to make a huge splash. Big names in this race means big numbers on other drivers.
Brian Scott 20/1
Regan Smith 10/1 - I don't get why his numbers are always high in these plate races.
Field - 12/1 - Relying on Mike Wallace to bring this one home.
Good luck on the season boys!
Duel I - I was surprised to see the 88 at 6/1. Starting in the back means nothing in a race like this when there is plenty of room to move. I'll take the 88 and 20 at 6/1 in the first race. I get the two strongest cars and the two best plate racers.
Duel II - 78 and 11 - Don't quite get the low odds for Carl, but it helps me get a better number. Carl is playing the "better teammate" card, and it wouldn't surprise me to see him push the 11 to the win. Truex looked strong in the Unlimited, and I think he has a good chance tomorrow. 78 at 10/1 and 11 at 5/1 look solid.
With the new year, the time for hitting conference moneyline dogs has come. Todays card is ugly.
