Dixie Vodka 400 NASCAR June 14, 2020
- NASCAR odds: +450
Kevin Harvick is leading the table with 452 points, two wins and six places in the top five at the end of the races. The Ford driver can’t slip up as a win by Joey Logano follows him closely and Harvick hopes to keep his lead.
Martin Truex Jr.
- Dixie Vodka 400 odds: +450
Martin Truex Jr. is a veteran, but he knows how to keep fighting. Tied with Harvick in the betting for this race in Miami, Truex knows how important it is to be able to take this win, as, with 381 points in the table, a victory puts him in the running for the eventual 2020 title. Truex comes from being first in the Blue-Emu Maximum Relief 500, so it comes with momentum for this circuit. Capitalizing on his first win of the year with another in a row would be monumental for Truex.
- NASCAR odds: +500
Always among the favorites, Kyle Busch has six top-five finishes this NASCAR Cup Series season. However, he’s fallen behind several times as he hasn’t won a race so far and is in a reckless ninth place off the top. A win puts him in the race for a top-five finish of the season, or at least a fight with them. However, he was 19th at his last presentation in Martinsville.
- Dixie Vodka 400 odds: +750
Chase Elliott is third in the table and has already been in the top five for five races, but has only been able to enjoy the champagne of first place in one. Elliott is part of one of the most powerful NASCAR teams in Chevrolet and, if the results are given to him, he could climb to the top of the standings to take the win in Miami.
- NASCAR odds: +800
Joey Logano was victorious in two of the first four races, but since then he has not been able to be the first to pass the checkered flag. At Martinsville he finished fourth, which is an improvement over his last two races before that, so Logano’s pace can be found again. Logano and his Ford are second in the standings, just 28 points behind the leader. A win is critical to Logano’s chances of getting into the top spot.
NASCAR Dixie Vodka 400 Predictions
As is the norm at almost every track in the NASCAR Cup Series, Kyle Busch already knows what success in this race is, having achieved it twice, in 2015 and the year before in 2019. Busch is always a safe bet.
Joey Logano was victorious in 2018 and with the possibility of a lead, it’s an interesting bet as long as Logano can handle the pressure of overcoming the circumstance and context around him.
Martin Truex Jr. and Harvick, who are both +450, have also been winners at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Harvick in 2014 and Truex in 2017, this is interesting. Harvick is the leader and if he doesn’t perform well he can be overtaken. Truex has been consistent and comes from winning the last race within NASCAR, so his momentum can be a factor in the difference. The recommended bet is Truex +450.
