Which driver offering less than double-digit odds has a great shot at winning the Pennzoil 400?
All drivers offering less than double-digit odds have a shot to win the Pennzoil 400 on Sunday. That includes likely race favorite Kevin Harvick. Harvick won the Pennzoil at Las Vegas in 2015 and 2018. He should be difficult to keep from popping the champagne.
Brad Keselowski should be difficult to keep from popping the champagne as well. Kesel won the race in 2014 and 2016. Not only that, but he heads to Vegas off a great win at Atlanta where he started 19th and led 33 laps. Keselowski deserves a long look, but the driver to back might be Kyle Busch.
Busch has 2 top 10 finishes and a top 5 finish from 3 races at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. He finished second in the Daytona 500 before finishing in the top 10 at Atlanta. Busch is on the cusp of a win and should be ready to take the checkered flag on March 3.
Up to Jimmie Johnson at +3500, who can take the checkered flag at Las Vegas Motor Speedway?
Erik Jones, Kyle Busch’s teammate at Joe Gibbs Racing, could most definitely win on Sunday. Jones’s average at Las Vegas is twenty-first, but he has a top 10 finish and did win a pole. Not only that, he raced well last week at Atlanta when finishing seventh. He finished third at Daytona 500.
What’s really great is that he started twenty-eighth in the Daytona 500. He started fifteenth at Atlanta. That means Erik made his way up into the top 10 after starting out of the top 10. With a better starting position at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 3, he could most definitely win the Pennzoil 400.
Is there a +5000 or higher underdog that can win the Pennzoil 400 on Sunday?
Daniel Saurez offers +5000 odds and while on the surface it doesn’t look like he has a shot, he actually does. Suarez finished tenth at Atlanta last Sunday. So, he should have a fast car at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Not only that, but even though his average finish at Las Vegas is eighteenth, he has a top 10 finish to his credit. That’s from only 3 races, which means he could improve enough to challenge for the checkered flag.
At +5000, all NASCAR handicappers should take a long look at Daniel Saurez to win the Pennzoil 400 trophy.
