Enjoy Illinois 300 Betting Analysis

NASCAR goes to Gateway for their second race at the 1.25 mile track where Joey Logano was victorious last year. Since we don’t have much track history, I took this years average finishes at Richmond, Dover and Darlington…three tracks less than 1.5 mile, but not as small as Martinsville.

*Chase Elliott is #1, but will be suspended for Sunday

1. Brad Keselowski 7.3
2. Christopher Bell 8.0
3. Alex Bowman 8.0 (only one race)
4. Kevin Harvick 8.7
5. William Byron 9.7
6. Ross Chastain 11.3
7. Denny Hamlin 12.3
8. Ty Gibbs 12.7
9. Ryan Blaney 12.7
10. Bubba Wallace 13.0

Chevy has been the car winning races, but we might be seeing an adjustment. Only one Chevy finished in the Top 5 last week, and Chevy’s have won one out of the last four races, and last year at this track the top seven was made up of only Ford’s and Chevy’s.

Enjoy Illinois 300 Betting Notes

-I lost on Kevin Harvick Top 10 last week after he ran in the top 10 all race only to be bumped causing him to spin. He fights back in the last 50 laps to end up 11th giving me a brutal loss on the play. Doesn’t change the fact his car was really good on the 1.5 mile track, and has been all season making for a nice comeback.

-Blaney’s average finish at the above three tracks isn’t great due to a 26th place finish at Richmond. He was solid at Dover and Darlington

-Including the All-Star Race, Bubba Wallace has four straight finishes inside the Top 5

Enjoy Illinois 300 Best Bet

Kevin Harvick Top 10

Even though he spun, he fought back to finish 11th when he had a top 7 car all race, and I’ll come back to him this week.

He had a brake rotor failure late in the race last year at Gateway ruining his race, but he finished 2nd at Darlington and 5th at Richmond so I feel confident he’ll be near the front most of the race.
