Breaking Down The Best Bets On The Board For Axalta 400 This Weekend

Posted by on 6/5/2015 1:04:58 AM

There will be a lot of talk about horsepower, tires and how prepared teams are for this week’s Axalta 400 at Long Pond, Pennsylvania but when it comes to breaking down the best bets on the board it’s hard to look past the top two drivers in the standings. Jimmie Johnson is coming off his 10th-career win at Dover where he joined some elite company as one of five drivers in NASCAR history to post a double-digit win total at the same track. Meanwhile, Johnson still has a lot of work to do to catch Kevin Harvick for the overall points lead as the latter simply refuses to finish any wore than second every week. Here is a look at the best bets on the board for the Axalta 400.

The Favorites

Jimmie Johnson +350

Johnson has turned up the heat of late and with Harvick refusing to budge we could see an epic battle for top this year’s Sprint Cup title the rest of the way. Johnson maneuvered his way past Harvick for the win last week despite the fact that Harvick had the better car and he dominated the race here two years ago when he led 128 of 160 laps on his way to Victory Lane. The six-time champ knows that Harvick will be right there contending for the win and it looks as though the additional motivation has helped provide a spark for the driver of the No. 48 Chevrolet.

Kevin Harvick +350

Harvick has been absolutely dominant this season finishing 1st or 2nd in 10 of 14 starts so while he might not have the best career numbers at Pocono it’s unreasonable to write him off on any given weekend. Harvick has the sixth-best driver rating and seventh-best average finish position over the last four races at Pocono but it’s important to keep his dominance this year in mind and realize he is more likely than not to be in contention for the win again this weekend.

Next In Line

Kurt Busch +600

Busch has had a fast car all season and with the second-best driver rating as well as the third-best average finish position this could be the track that he breaks through for the win at. A year ago, he started on the front row and finished third so look for him to be in the mix again this year as he goes for his second win of the season.

Brad Keselowski +700

Keselowski has struggled with consistency of late but he has the horsepower and the experience on his side as he looks to get back on track this week at Pocono.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. +1000

Dale Jr. swept the Pocono races a year ago and has finished each of the last four in the top-five so it’s important not to overlook him heading in to this week. Earnhardt has the best average finish position at this track in the last four races and the Hendrick team will have him ready for another strong performance running up front this weekend.

Sleeper Pick

Kasey Kahne +2500

Kahne has been incredibly inconsistent this season but it’s important to remember that despite his fall this season he is still a very talented driver that will be behind the wheel of an HMS car this weekend. The Hendrick team has done an excellent job at Pocono in the past and at such long odds it might be worth taking a flier on Kahne to surprise everyone and steal his first win of the season this weekend.
