We were big winners last week at Darlington, so let’s get a streak going Saturday night at Richmond.
Here are my picks…
*odds are according to Westgate Sportsbook
Sleeper Pick: Kasey Kahne (100/1)
Richmond has never been one of Kahne’s better tracks, which explains why he has such long shot odds for Saturday night’s race. However, he does have a win here. Obviously it isn’t a safe pick, but if you’re looking for a lottery ticket then I think Kahne is your guy.
Value Pick: Kurt Busch (35/1)
Kurt Busch is consistently one of my value picks because it always seems like oddsmakers are disrespecting one of NASCAR’s most talented veteran drivers. Busch nearly was victorious last week, plus he has two wins at Richmond. If you’re betting on a Busch brother this weekend, go with this one.
Two Safest Picks: Denny Hamlin(9/2) and Martin Truex Jr. (9/2)
Hamlin earned us some money last weekend, and of course now he’s a favorite for another one of his best tracks Saturday night. Truex Jr. is also a favorite. No surprise there.
My Pick: Kevin Harvick (6/1)
This weekend feels like a Harvick weekend. He has three career wins at Richmond and at 6/1 I like the value for one of the best drivers in NASCAR at one of his best tracks.
