NASCAR at Pocono odds, key stats, bets to consider: Three drivers to buy low

Following the longest race of the NASCAR season, the Cup Series heads to one of the most unique tracks on the circuit to the Pocono 400.
There’s not any track in NASCAR like Pocono Raceway. The 2.5-mile asphalt track in Pennsylvania has three ends together with diverse degrees of banking and long straightaways. Dubbed the Tricky Triangle, the monitor’s length and relatively flat design is most similar to Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
When handicapping Sunday’s race (1 p.m. CT, FS1), bear in mind big horsepower teams do well in Pocono. Drivers who have been capable of Michigan and Fontana’s 2-mile track also tend to have success at Pocono.

Busch is the gambling favorite at 3/1 chances in the Westgate SuperBook, and his Pocono wins have come in the three latest races at the monitor. He has led 262 laps in the last seven starts there and enters Sunday’s event with top-10 finishes in 12 of the year’s 13 races.
Recent results, pocono rules package According to NASACR, Pocono’s race will comprise the 2019 rules package with a tapered-spacer engine which will create about 550 horsepower. The automobiles will have aero ducts, a change that NASCAR created after seeing the non-duct package at Atlanta earlier this year.
The past six 550-horsepower races happened at the five 1.5-mile tracks of Atlanta, Las Vegas, Texas, Kansas and Charlotte, in addition to Fontana’s 2-mile oval.
