After an electrifying return to NASCAR last weekend at the Darlington 400, we are straight back into the thick of the action at the same track where Kevin Harvick picked up 54 points last Sunday.
Even though it was Harvick who took home the points, Kyle Busch goes into this one the favorite with Brad Keselowski trailing just behind – who will take the points on Wednesday?
Toyota 500 Winners Picks
The event is due to take place on Wednesday, May 20, at the Darlington Racetrack, North Carolina from 7:30 (EST). A variety of the top-tier sportsbook providers are offering unique NASCAR promotions to pay tribute to the return of America’s number one motorsport.
BetOnline is one of those, offering a special $20,000 Trifecta bet on the Toyota 500. But more importantly, we are rewarded with a some-what return to normality and the thrill of watching the world’s best race it out of 500 gripping laps!
Expect the Championship favorite to stay hot heading into Wednesday’s race. The win on Sunday marked his 50th career one and one he worked for all day. It wasn’t an easy race, but Harvick’s perseverance pulled through.
An interesting stat about this racetrack is that Harvick has made a Top 9 finish in his last 9 races at this track.
For bettors that feel he won’t win, at least tip him to finish in the Top 5/10 – this man knows about consistency. Harvick looks unstoppable and we can see him cruising to victory once again.
Kyle Busch to claim glory at +700
Kyle Busch raced a disappointing race on Sunday, he only managed to chalk up a thirteenth-place finish.
He needs to be a bounce back after watching his main rival take the points. Kyle will be hungry to grab another championship title and Kevin is the main man to stand in his way.
But a slow start to the season leaves Kyle Busch wondering where the points are going to come from. He didn’t drive a particularly dazzling race on Sunday, but he’s back on the same track on Wednesday for another attempt.
It’s theother K. Busch that lit up the show on Sunday, grabbing himself a third-place finish. Amazingly, Kurt Busch has managed in the Top 7 four straight times, which is pretty astounding for a supposed non-contender for the championship.
While the oddsmakers don’t see him as a major contender on Wednesday, he is still performing well and certainly worth an outside punt.
Although a third-placed finish on Sunday was impressive, he didn’t lead the race once during its duration. If you don’t take him to win, give him a top 5/10 finish.
