Martinsville STP 500 NASCAR Betting Picks and Race Odds

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series is at Martinsville Speedway this weekend, and with Kyle Busch winning at both Phoenix and Fontana within the previous two weeks, he has been set up as a heavy favorite for today’s STP 500 in”The Paperclip”–and for good reason: Rowdy has not finished outside the top 5 in this track because the 2014 season, and he has led a joint 582 laps over the last four (and 937 within the last six). Of course, when you have the preferred at +150 to triumph, that means there is some fantastic value in gambling others in case that man has issues during the race.

Last weekend in Car Club Speedway my favourite bets went 2-0, bringing my annual record to 5-3. I’d Brad Keselowski to complete top 3, along with his day went south early, so that was screwed from the beginning.

Martin Truex, Jr.. Top 3 End (+200) — The races in Martinsville are generally predictable: we see the exact same faces up front again and again, and we don’t watch Martin Truex, Jr. in victory lane. Where we do see himthough, is close enough to acquire if something goes wrong with the leader. Over the previous 3 races in”The Paperclip,” Truex has posted finishes of 3rd, 4th, and 2nd, although he begins back in 8th for the STP 500, he’s got one hell of a race car under him to get to the front. The #19 Toyota ranked #1 in 10-, 15-, 20-, and 30-lap average during the last practice session on Saturday, and there is going to be lots of long runs during the race. Truex will really shine during these. If you look at this week’s ranks by the Fantasy Racing On line algorithm, Truex is a really close 4th behind Logano, and if you look at recent trends by pole sitters from the spring Martinsville race, then I’d give that advantage to Truex.

Chris Buescher (+105) over Daniel Hemric — I am really surprised Chris Buescher is not becoming more love this weekend. This #37 team has never finished worse than 18th because the Daytona 500, and they have got a good starting place for today’s STP 500 (12th). Meanwhile, the Hemric will begin from back in 28th, and has a propensity to hit the wall more often than not. We have got 500 laps to race in the present STP 500, and to be honest, I am not sure he ends. On the other hand, Buescher has finished 13th, 23rd, 21st, and 11th in his past four Martinsville starts, and he is running better than he has probably ever conducted. This one is really a no brainer for me.
