Auto racing betting odds to win the Axalta presents the Pocono 400 on Sunday at Pocono Raceway – known as the Tricky Triangle – in Long Pond, Pennsylvania. This will be the 14th event of the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series for people who like to bet on auto racing.
Brad Keselowski +610
Keselowski has yet to win the Poconos 400, though he came close in 2014. On that occasion he led 95 of 160 laps, but Dale Earnhardt Jr. passed him with four laps remaining to take the win when Keselowski attempted to utilize Danica Patrick’s lapped car to clean trash from his grille. Additionally, he finished third last year. More importantly for people who bet on auto racing, he won 2011 Good Sam RV Insurance 500 – also held in the Triangle – with a broken freakin’ ankle, and has two other runner-up finishes in Pocono. Keselowski has had a couple of disappointing finishes in his last two races and is due for a return to prominence.
Martin Truex Jr +615
The leader of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver standings led 97 of 160 laps on his way to winning the 2015 Poconos 400 (btw, he has led the most laps this season with 4283). In addition to that, he has two top 3 finishes and three top 10s at Pocono Raceway. This season, Truex has three straight podiums, winning the Go Bowling 400 and placing 3rd in the Coca Cola 600 and the AAA 400 Drive for Autism in the last few weeks.
Kyle Larson +615
Larson has the same auto racing betting odds of winning this race as Truex, except that it would be Larson’s first win in the Tricky Triangle. His best finishes there are a 5th place finish in 2014 and a 6th place finish in the 2016 Pennsylvania 400. Larson has won the pole position four times this season but that has only translated into victory once – though it may have helped finished second five times, fittingly putting him second in the standings nine points behind Truex.
Jimmie Johnson +760
As is his wont, JJ has been victorious at Pocono Raceway on multiple occasions, including the Pocono 400 in 2013 (when it was actually the Pocono 500) and in 2013 (then known as the Party in the Poconos 400), and well as the 2004 Pennsylvania 500. Moreover, he has eight top 5 finishes in the Triangle. Finally, Johnson won the AAA 400 Drive for Autism this past Sunday for his third win of the season.
Kevin Harvick +825
Harvick has a storied history in Pocono with more than 30 starts eight top 5 finishes but never being able to win in that race course. Similarly, his overall performance this season keeps him in contention though it may not win him his second Nascar Cup Series.
Chase Elliott +1175
Our final auto racing betting candidate, Elliott finished 4th in last year’s edition of the race. Elliott became the first driver since Dale Earnhardt in 1996 to win both the Daytona 500 pole and a qualifying race (the Can-Am Duel race) but has yet to live up to the promise he show at the start of the season.
