Foxwood Resorts Casino 301 Odds and Predictions

Written by on July 17, 2018

Martin Truex Jr. took home the trophy in Kentucky last week. Does that set him up for a win in the Foxwood Resorts Casino 301? Not if Kyle Busch, Ryan Blaney, Kevin Harvick, and Brad Keselowski has anything to say about it. Those guys finished in the Top 5 along with Truex Jr. Check out a NASCAR odds preview and predictions for the Foxwood Resorts Casino 301!

Foxwood Resorts Casino 301 Odds and Predictions

The Favorites

  • Kyle Busch                              +250
  • Kevin Harvick                       +300
  • Martin Truex Jr.                   +330
If you’re looking to back chalk, it’s tough to look past Kyle Busch, right? A Joe Gibbs racer has won the last 3 racings of the Foxwood Resorts Casino 301. This is true when it was the Overton’s 301 last year. But, Busch doesn’t inspire confidence he’ll close the deal. Sure, Kyle’s got 5 wins this year. Most of the time, he’s been happy with Top 5 finishes. It’s tough to back a guy who’s always looking for a Top 5 finish, and not necessarily a checkered flag, at less than 3 to 1 odds. Martin Truex Jr. finished third in last year’s 301. He’ll have a big shot of making it back-to-back after his big win in Kentucky last week. Foxwood Resort Casino 301 Betting Pick: Martin Truex Jr.

The Second Choices

  • Denny Hamlin                       +650
  • Kyle Larson                            +650
  • Clint Bowyer                          +650
  • Brad Keselowski                   +800
If you’re looking for better odds, this is your category. Denny Hamlin won the 301 last year. Kyle Larson finished second. Larson isn’t a Joe Gibbs racer, that’s why Denny figures to get more play. Hamlin has been one of the better drivers on the NASCAR circuit for more than a decade. There’s every reason to believe he shows up in this. I still believe Larson’s the bet, though. He finished 9th in Kentucky last week. That’s a sign he’ll be competitive. He also finished second in Chicago on July 1. This is a race Larson can win. Foxwood Resort Casino 301 Betting Pick: Kyle Larson

The Underdogs

  • Joey Logano                         +1500
  • Ryan Laney                          +1500
  • Eric Jones                             +1600
  • Field                                        +1600
  • Kurt Busch                            +2500
There are some awesome drivers in the field. Matt Kenseth, Austin Dillon, and Ryan Newman are just a few of the names in this Field. Still, the field’s a tough bet. Erik Jones had a horrible run in the 2017 Overton’s 301. He finished 39th of 39 drivers. That shouldn’t inspire a ton of confidence. Then again, Jones is a Joe Gibbs Racing driver. He also drove exceptionally well at Kentucky last week for a Top 10 finish. Take the odds on Jones if you’re looking to back a dog. Foxwood Resort Casino 301 Betting Pick: Erik Jones
