Martinsville STP 500 NASCAR Betting Picks and Race Odds

Posted on Posted in Blog Posts

The Dragon Energy NASCAR Cup Series is at Martinsville Speedway this weekend, and with Kyle Busch winning at Phoenix and Fontana within the last two weeks, he’s been installed as a heavy favorite for the STP 500 in”The Paperclip”–and for good reason: Rowdy hasn’t finished outside the top 5 at this track because the 2014 season, and he has led a joint 582 laps over the previous four (and 937 over the last six). Of course, when you have the favorite at +150 to win, so there’s some fantastic significance in betting others in case that man has issues during the race.

Last weekend at Auto Club Speedway my favourite bets went 2-0, bringing my yearly record to 5-3. I had Brad Keselowski to complete top 3, and his day went south early, so that was screwed from the start.

Martin Truex, Jr.. Top 3 End (+200) — The races at Martinsville are usually predictable: we see the exact same faces up front again and again, and we do not see Martin Truex, Jr. in victory lane. Where we do find him, though, is close enough to acquire if something goes wrong with the chief. Over the last three races at”The Paperclip,” Truex has posted finishes of 3rd, 4th, and 2nd, and even though he starts back into 8th for the STP 500, he’s got one hell of a race car underneath him for into the front. The 19 Toyota ranked #1 at 10-, 15-, 20-, and 30-lap average during the final practice session here on Saturday, and there’s going to be plenty of long runs throughout the race. Truex is really going to shine during these. When you study this week’s ranks by the Fantasy Racing Online algorithm, Truex is a very close 4th behind Logano, and if you take a look at current trends by pole sitters from the spring Martinsville race, then I’d give that advantage to Truex.

Chris Buescher (+105) over Daniel Hemric — I am honestly surprised Chris Buescher is not becoming more love this weekend. This #37 team has never finished worse than 18th because the Daytona 500, and they have got a good starting spot for today’s STP 500 (12th). Meanwhile, the Hemric will begin from back in 28th, also has a propensity to hit the wall more often than not. We’ve got 500 laps to race in today’s STP 500, and to be honest, I am not sure he finishes. On the other hand, Buescher has finished 13th, 23rd, 21st, and 11th in his last four Martinsville begins, and he’s running better than he has likely ever conducted. This one is a no brainer for me.
