Kurt Busch (-115) > Erik Jones – Over the past 4 Coke 600’s Busch has an average finish of 11.7. He also has had top 10 finish in 3 of the last 4 Coke 600’s. While Jones has an average coke 600 finish of 22 including a dead last finish last year. While I don’t think Jones will finish dead last again I do think Busch bounces back from a disappointing 600 last year. I’ll take Bush in this match up and get back to Top 10 forum.
Aric Almirola (-115) > Tyler Reddick – Almirola has an average finish of 15.2 in the last 4 Coke 600’s including an 11th place finish in 2019 and 13th in 2018. Rookie Tyler Reddick ran really well at the two Darlington races including 7th place finish Sunday and finishing 13th on Wednesday. He has really shown he can run the big boys. But I am going to roll with the veteran Almirola in this match up.
Martin Truex Jr (-135) > Alex Bowman – Truex jr. has been the most dominate drivers at the coke 600. He has won this event 2 of the last 4 years (2019 and 2016). He has finished in the top 5 7 0f the 8 races at Charlotte. In that span he has an average finish of 2.5 at the 600, the best average in NASCAR. Bowman has raced in the 600 twice in his career finishing 7th in 2019 and 13th in 2018. I am going to eat the juice with Truex in this match up.
Jimmie Johnson (-105) > Ryan Blaney – Johnson over the past 5 600’s has an average finish of 6.8 including a win in 2014. Johnson also has a top 5 finish in 3 of the last 5 600’s and also has a top 10 finish at Charlotte. 4 of the last 5 600’s. Blaney on the other hand has an average finish of 23.2 for the 600. Blaney has only cracked the top 15 once in his career at the 600. Im going to go with Johnson here with the short price.
Joe Gibbs car wins Coca Cola 600 (+195) – Over the past 6 Coca Cola 600’s Joe Gibbs have dominated in Charlotte. Gibbs cars have won 4 of the past 6 Coke 600’s. Gibbs has already notched 2 wins in 2020 in the short season. I’ll take my chances with the plus money on at least Truex, Busch, Hamlin or Erick Jones gets the win Sunday.
Kenseth to win Coca Cola 600 +5000 – One driver I am going to throw some pizza money to win outright is Matt Kenseth at +5000 I think is a great value bet. Over his last 5 600’s at Charlotte he has 4 top 10’s and 3 top 5’s.
Everyone have a safe Memorial Day weekend and stay safe – Bully The Line
