As the NASCAR season continues to heat up, those looking for some NASCAR betting tips might want to look to the New Hampshire Motor Speedway event. This should be a fantastic match-up, and there is likely to be a lot at stake in this one. The Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 event is going to be extremely interesting thanks to the sheer number of potential contenders. Who, then, looks to be a good shout to perform well at the upcoming event?
Denny Hamlin (+475)
If you want to back a bit of a favorite to do well here, you should take a look at Denny Hamlin. Though his +475 odds aren’t exactly significant, he’s got a trio of wins at New Hampshire in the past, with his most recent victory coming in 2017. So, he knows the circuit extremely well. He’s also come second in both of his last trips here, so he has a really strong history of performing well on the day.
However, his poor form since April – including poor performances at Pocono and Atlanta – means he is by no means a bookies favorite for this one. But, with a history of success on the track, though, he’s worth backing.
Martin Truex Jr. (+500)
If you want to look for someone who has a pretty good chance of doing well, Martin Truex Jr. is a smart driver to back. He has enjoyed a decent run recently, coming third at Atlanta last week and has also done well at New Hampshire in the past. Indeed, he has managed to finish seventh or above in his last six attempts at New Hampshire. Failure to win, though, does dilute his odds a touch; this could, though, be an interesting time for him to break the mold and go all the way.
Kyle Larson (+550)
A good mid-range backer to go for would be Kyle Larson. The driver has three runner-up finishes, with two of them arriving in 2017. He’s had a decent enough season, though he does need to find some more consistency. Five top-four finishes in 10 Loudon starts is a decent return, and he has some good odds for that reason. However, a poor 18th in the last race at Atlanta was a bit of a let-down, so Larson will definitely have something to prove as he comes to a race he has enjoyed success at previously.
Brad Keselowski (+650)
At +650, Brad Keselowski is a good mid-range bet to cover. He came 13th and then 10th in the Atlanta races, and has a rather mixed bag of history at this particular circuit. He came 1st in the 2020 edition but came 10th in the 2019 edition and 32nd in the 2028 edition. However, he has, since 2016, also finished 4th, 9th, and 4th again. So, he has enjoyed some success here before and the fact he mastered the track to victory last time out gives him a good chance of doing well again here this time around.
Kyle Busch (+650)
At +650, Kyle Busch is another bet in line with Keselowski. He’s a good shout because he has had some decent runs here in the past, coming 2nd in 2018 and 8th in 2019. However, a shocking 38th place finish in 2020 means that Busch is by no means expected to be a favorite here. If he can get back to the style he has shown recently – coming 2nd last week behind his brother at Atlanta and winning the Xfinity Series Race at Atlanta-2 the day before, Busch has shown some real guts in recent races.
Chase Elliott (+800)
However, if you want to go for someone who could do well here but has fallen out of favor, look at Chase Elliott. Elliott has endured a DQ at Nashville and a mess-up at Pocono, but he’s had a solid summer and has run well at New Hampshire in the past. He has come ninth or better in two of his last three attempts at the circuit, so he definitely has a decent handle on this particular court. A winner’s position and then a 7th place finish in the Atlanta races has put Elliott in fine fettle heading into a race that he could do well in. As such, he might be the best long-odds racer to back to succeed when this race comes around.
