Coca-Cola 600 Betting Odds, Picks: Best Bets to Win at Charlotte Motor Speedway

The Coca-Cola 600 will get underway in 6 pm ET on Sunday on FOX, with Kyle Busch as the clear favorite (+250 betting odds).
Kevin Harvick (+600) and Martin Truex Jr. (+600) are not too far behind in what’s going to be the longest race of the year.
Nick Giffen utilizes his statistical model to handicap the four greatest futures values from the race.
For the second consecutive weekend, the Dragon Energy NASCAR Cup Series will be racing in Charlotte Motor Speedwday (6:00 p.m. ET, FOX). But this time rather than an All-Star shootout, motorists are in for a grueling 600 miles in the Cup Series‘ longest race of the year.

Charlotte is a 1.5-mile oblong having a comparatively old surface which has been repaved back in 2006. We saw in the All-Star race that tires failed to make a difference and track position was also extremely significant, therefore this race should offer a good mix of multiple 1.5-mile tracks.

The most recent 1.5-mile points-paying race was also a night race in Kansas Speedwday. In that race, the top five at typical green-flag rate all showed up at the top nine in 15-lap speed in Happy Hour, despite the race being during the nighttime and last practice throughout the day.

We’ve got a similar scenario at Charlotte this weekend, so I’ll certainly rely on long-run speed in addition to 1.5-mile performance this season and past Charlotte oval performance when handicapping the race.

Equipped with all these data points, let us get right to my favorite bets to win tonight’s race, also bonus top-five and top-10 props.

A fast primer about the chances under: A $100 wager at +375 chances would gain $375, while a $200 wager at -200 chances would pay out $100.

Kevin Harvick +600 to Acquire
Kyle Busch is the preferred as a result of his exceptional speed in Happy Hour and three wins to Harvick’s zero wins this season. But, it could be argued that Harvick should be a co-favorite despite finishing only 13th on the 10-lap board in final practice.

That is because in opening practice, he had been considerably better relative to the rest of the field over 10 consecutive laps. His fifth-place time during the cooler temperatures is reassuring. Actually, Harvick’s Crew Chief Rodney Childers said the cars are extremely sensitive to track changes, which they were really great in opening clinic throughout the cooler temperatures.
