Does Harvick, Kyle Busch, Keselowski, Truex Jr., Larson, or Logano offer the most value to win the 2019 Auto Club 400?

Kyle Busch won this race back-to-back in 2013-2014. That means it’s been 5 years since he took the checkered flag. Those who think Kyle’s glass is half-full no doubt will say he’s due. It’s hard to believe the glass is half full at the low odds, though.

If we’re willing to throw out Kyle, we must also be willing to throw out Kevin Harvick. Harvick won the Auto Club 400 in 2011. He hasn’t since, which is whye he presents underlay odds at +500. Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano, and Kyle Larson all have a shot, but the driver to back amongst the favorites is Martin Truex Jr.

Since the awful 35th place finish at the Daytona 500, Truex Jr. has been on a tear, finishing 2nd at Atlanta, 8th at Las Vegas, and 2nd at Phoenix. He won the 2018 Auto Club 400. If you want to back a favorite, Martin’s the chalk to back.

Up to Kurt Busch at +2500 who can take the checkered flag at Auto Club Speedway?

Ryan Blaney got it together at Phoenix last Sunday. He won the pole. Then, he led 94 laps before ending up in third place behind Truex Jr. and Kyle Busch. Blaney drove well enough for an 8th place finish at the 2018 Auto Club 400. He should head into Sunday with a fast car.

Often, once drivers and crews get on the same page, like what Ryan and his crew did at Phoenix last week, they stay on the same page. Expect another great run from Blaney on Sunday. He’s a good bet at +2000.

Is there a +5000 or higher underdog that can win the 2019 Auto Club 400 on Sunday?

It’s getting tougher every week to back Jimmie Johnson, but it’s also tough to back anybody else at +5000 odds or higher. The best driver in NASCAR history finished 8th at Phoenix last Sunday, won the Auto Club 400 in 2016, and might finally be on the same page as crew chief Kevin Meendering. Johnson deserves the nod as the top underdog to win on March 17.
