Martinsville STP 500 NASCAR Betting Picks and Race Odds

  • 14 Sep, 2019

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series is at Martinsville Speedway this weekend, also with Kyle Busch winning at both Phoenix and Fontana over 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’s led a combined 582 laps within the last four (and 937 over the last six). Of course, when you have the favorite in +150 to win, so there is some fantastic significance in betting others in the event that man has issues throughout the race. Last weekend at Car Club Speedway my favorite bets went 2-0, bringing my annual record to 5-3. I had Brad Keselowski to finish top 3, and his afternoon went south early, so that was screwed from the beginning. My Favorite Bets for Martinsville Martin Truex, Jr..

Top 3 End (+200) — The races in Martinsville are usually predictable: we see the exact same faces up front time and time again, and we do not watch Martin Truex, Jr. in victory lane. Where we do find him, though, is close enough to acquire in case something goes wrong with the leader. Over the last three races in”The Paperclip,” Truex has posted finishes of 3rd, 4th, and 2nd, and even though he starts back into 8th for today’s STP 500, he’s got one hell of a race car underneath him for to the front. The #19 Toyota rated #1 in 10-, 15-, 20-, and 30-lap average during the last practice session here on Saturday, and there is likely to be plenty of long runs throughout the race. Truex will really shine during these. When you look at this week’s ranks by the Fantasy Racing On line algorithm, Truex is a really close 4th behind Logano, and if you look at recent trends by pole sitters in the spring Martinsville race, then I would give that advantage to Truex. Chris Buescher (+105) over Daniel Hemric — I am honestly surprised Chris Buescher isn’t becoming more adore this weekend. This #37 team has never finished worse than 18th because the Daytona 500, and they’ve got a good starting spot for today’s STP 500 (12th). Meanwhile, Hemric will begin from back in 28th, and has a propensity to hit the wall more often than not. We have got 500 laps to race in the present STP 500, and to tell the truth, I’m not sure he ends. On the flip side, Buescher has completed 13th, 23rd, 21st, and 11th in his past four Martinsville starts, and he is running better than he’s likely ever ran. This one is a no brainer for me.
