2018 Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard NASCAR Betting Odds & Predictions

The regular season finale for its Dragon Energy NASCAR Cup Series is the weekend’s Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard, since NASCAR’s annual stop at Indianapolis Motor Speedway comes in September this year. Adjustments to the schedule have taken the July race into the second weekend in September. It won’t be hot at IMS as normal, so teams will have to make some adjustments to what they remember about the monitor.
Speaking of adjustments, NASCAR, as a whole, needs a few. The announcement that Furniture Row Racing will stop operations because of lack of sponsorship. NASCAR’s issues run deep, as even Jimmie Johnson, who stays a big name in the game despite a lack of results, doesn’t have sponsors lined up for next year. Martin Truex Jr. won last year’s championship with Furniture Row. He’ll remain with Toyota and proceed to Joe Gibbs Racing for 2019, but this is a indication of bigger problems for your game.
While our principal focus remains the conclusion of the regular season, NASCAR has a great deal of things to find out. CEO Brian France is still receiving treatment for chemical abuse issues and the sport is hurting financially with diminishing attendance and a lack of sponsors. Some could even think about the situation dire.
In any event, we are a betting information site, so our attention is that this weekend’s race. It is the 26th and last race of the regular season, with the playoffs beginning next week in Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This is one of the most iconic places in racing and that milk always goes good, in spite of the temperature outside, for the winner of this one.
For those on the outside looking in for the playoffs, that milk goes down real, real good. Just two playoff spots remain unclaimed. Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, and Martin Truex Jr. have 16 of the 25 wins. Clint Bowyer has two. Kurt Busch, Joey Logano, Brad Keselowski, Chase Elliott, Erik Jones, and Austin Dillon have one win apiece. Ryan Blaney, Kyle Larson, Denny Hamlin, and Aric Almirola have been based on points. Jimmie Johnson appears safe, with a 19-point edge on Alex Bowman. If someone below Bowman wins, then he will get knocked out. Otherwise, he has a huge points advantage on Ricky Stenhouse Jr.. Kasey Kahne won this mess of a race this past year, which had cautions, crashes, and bad weather. If this happens this week, then he’d be in.
Not surprisingly, Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch, and Martin Truex Jr. would be the best three on the board in 5Dimes Sportsbook. Harvick and Busch are equally +265 and Truex is +470. There really isn’t much to say about these guys. Truex has some extra incentive to win each and every week for Furniture Row along with his hard-working team, but that may not be enough from Busch and Harvick on a large, quick track. Harvick has not won since 2003, Busch won in 2015 and 2016, and Truex has never won here.
Harvick won the Michigan race a few weeks ago and was second earlier in the year. That’s the best barometer we’ve got for this 2.5-mile monitor since Daytona and Talladega are all restrictor plate races and those are an altogether different creature. Busch was fourth and third. Truex was 18th and 14th. Truex did win the two-mile loop in Car Club Speedway.
The obvious choice for investment that this week is Kyle Larson. Larson doesn’t have a win, but swept just about everything last week in Darlington. He simply finished third rather than first. He led the most laps and won both phases. He was third two weeks ahead at Bristol. Larson has been 17th and 28th at Michigan earlier this season, but he owns three career wins at Michigan and has run well at Auto Club Speedway. Larson is +660 to get his first win and it would not be the least bit surprising when he got it .
Brad Keselowski, last week’s winner at Darlington, is +1300. Ryan Blaney and Joey Logano are the sole others below 20/1. That is another problem for NASCAR. It just isn’t all that aggressive anymore. Fans of drivers not called Harvick, Busch, or Truex don’t have a lot to see on a weekly basis.
There are some non-household names that have won this race lately. Jimmie Johnson has four wins, with the last coming in 2012. Jeff Gordon won here five occasions, with the past in 2014. Ryan Newman won in 2013. Kahne won last year. Paul Menard won in 2011. Jamie McMurray won in 2010. There is the chance for somebody to measure as a very long shot, but it appears highly unlikely with the gear and the drivers that have dominated the sport this season.
