It seems like we are all in agreement that Pocono is going to come down to some sort of strategy play. There is a driver that I think will not only have a fast car, but I think can play any strategy that is needed to get the win.
88 to win 8/1
22 to win 11/1 - Another guy that should be quick, and he seems to have learned from BK how to do that "hyper-miling."
78 top 3 5/1 - Just not sure these guys actually have what it takes to close the deal.
14 top 3 25/1 - Got this one early in the week. His odds to win the race dropped from 90/1 to 45/1.
16 top 3 30/1 - This guy is picking up speed and playing the fuel mileage game of late.
Trucks - Most likely I am late to the party, but I am taking Reddick at 5/1, and I'll go Crafton at 3/1. This should most likely be the week that Erik Jones closes the deal since I have been on him over and over with no love.
Looks like the Gibbs teams have found that "extra bit of speed" that they said they were lacking.
Hamlin - My book left the odds up during practice yesterday, and I am not one to pass on a book's generosity. Got the 10/1, but just not the 20/1 like a few of you got.
Johnson - Doesn't look like he has the speed, or the long run ability of Hamlin, but it is still Dover. 4/1
Bowyer top 3 - The truck and Infinity races came down to a long fuel run at the end, and I could see drivers like the 19, 15 and 88, and even the 14 doing something out of the ordinary to get to the front. 30/1
McMurray top 3 - This guy always seems to be lurking at the short tracks. He is another one where a strategy play may get him to the front. Don't think he has anything for the Gibbs boys, but a top 3 is not out of the question. 12/1.
Parlays 3-7 +$607
Cubs -1.5 +125 - Looks like we could have a shootout with the total set at 10.5. I will take the better offense and arguably the better pitcher.
Padres -1.5 + 115 - I am assuming Tulo will sit since it is Sunday, and that is what he does. Kendrick will be lucky to get out of the 4th, like usual, and then in comes the Rockies bullpen, which has been overused on this trip. I'll also play the -2.5 when I get it. Might also play Padres to win by 4 or more when that comes out as well.
I love this race because of the huge odds and the opportunity to bet a few more drivers than normal.
43 - 55/1 $20.00
13 - 70/1 $10.00
1 - 25/1 $30.00
16- 25/1 $30.00
17 - 40/1 $20.00
22 - 12/1 $35.00
Let the chaos begin!
I really don't see how this doesn't go the full 12, but I am on the following:
Mayweather wins in Round 1-6 +22/1 ($35.00)
Mayweather wins in Round 7-10 16/1 ($60.00)
Mayweather wins in Round 10-12 22/1 ($55.00)
