One down, one to go at Dover International Speedway, where Denny Hamlin prevailed Saturday to claim his sixth NASCAR Cup Series victory this season. Hamlin carried +550 odds into the event and will go for a weekend sweep in Sunday’s Cup Series event on the 1-mile banked oval.
Motorsports followers should have no shortage of NASCAR betting options after Hamlin became the 10th active driver to win on the Monster Mile. Saturday we called a top-three finish for Martin Truex Jr. (+115) as well as top-10s for Clint Bowyer (+130) and Jimmie Johnson (-139). We’re watching these three drivers in Sunday’s weekend doubleheader finale in the First State in Sunday’s Drydene 311.

Martin Truex Jr.
Nobody on the circuit is running better right now than Truex, who is our top pick to win Sunday on the heels of his runner-up finish in the opener. Saturday’s result came after a five-race streak of third-place finishes, giving him six straight outings of third or better. Toss out the event at Texas (where he was spun by Kyle Busch) and Truex might have been third or better in seven straight races. Truex’s recent stats at Dover have been equally as impressive: First, second and second again in the past three on the Monster Mile for the Joe Gibbs Racing driver. He’s as good at Dover as anyone. Bet on Truex at Unibet.

Is Busch back? He had been pedestrian for most of 2020 by his standards, but the defending series champion has now finished sixth or better in four of his past six oval starts. Saturday’s third-place run at Dover marked his best finish since he was second at Atlanta in June. At Dover, he has finished eighth or better four times in his past six starts, a stretch that includes the most recent of his three wins there in 2017. Without practice, the famously meticulous Busch has often struggled to get the car where he wants it in 2020. But Saturday’s performance gives him a full notebook to pull from for Sunday. If he doesn’t crash — which he has done too much this season —Busch could contend for another top-three finish. Ride the “Rowdy” one at DraftKings.

The momentum Johnson was building in early summer evaporated after he was sidelined with the coronavirus. When he came back, the seven-time Cup champion almost seemed to be starting from scratch in his quest to find speed. The last two races, though, have been very promising: He was fourth at the Daytona road course and seventh Saturday at Dover — his best track, where Johnson has won 11 times. Johnson hasn’t won in over three years, but that victory came at the Monster Mile. He promises to offer value for bettors looking for a top-three contender sporting longer odds. Wager on Johnson at Unibet.
