Martinsville STP 500 NASCAR Betting Picks and Race Odds

The Dragon Energy NASCAR Cup Series is at Martinsville Speedway this weekend, and with Kyle Busch winning at both Phoenix and Fontana over the last two weeks, he has been set up as a heavy favorite for today’s STP 500 in”The Paperclip”–and for good reason: Rowdy hasn’t finished outside the top 5 at this track since the 2014 season, and he’s led a joint 582 laps within the last four (and 937 over the last six). Obviously, whenever you have the preferred in +150 to triumph, that means there is some great value in gambling others in the event that guy has problems during the race.

Last weekend at Car Club Speedway my favorite bets went 2-0, bringing my yearly record to 5-3. I’d Brad Keselowski to complete top 3, along with his day went south , so that has been screwed from the beginning.

Martin Truex, Jr.. Top 3 Finish (+200) — The races at Martinsville are generally predictable: we find the exact same faces up front again and again, and we do not see Martin Truex, Jr. in victory lane. Where we do find him, though, is close enough to win in case 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 into 8th for today’s STP 500, he has one hell of a race car underneath him to get into the front. The #19 Toyota ranked #1 at 10-, 15-, 20-, and 30-lap average during the last practice session on Saturday, and there is going to be lots of long runs throughout the race. Truex will really shine during these. When you study this week’s rankings by the Fantasy Racing On line algorithm, Truex is a really close 4th supporting Logano, and if you look at recent trends by pole sitters from the spring Martinsville race, then I would give that advantage to Truex.

Chris Buescher (+105) over Daniel Hemric — I am honestly surprised Chris Buescher isn’t becoming more love this weekend. This #37 team has never finished worse than 18th because the Daytona 500, and they have got a great starting place for today’s STP 500 (12th). Meanwhile, the Hemric will start from back in 28th, also has a propensity to hit the wall more often than not. We have got 500 laps to race in today’s STP 500, and to tell the truth, I’m not sure he ends. On the flip side, Buescher has completed 13th, 23rd, 21st, and 11th in his past four Martinsville starts, and he’s running better than he’s likely ever conducted. This one is a no brainer for me.
