NASCAR Cup Series Verizon 200 at the Brickyard Odds and Best Bets: Can the Road Course King Notch Win #5?

By | July 31, 2022

The 22nd race of the NASCAR Cup Series season will take place at the historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Better known as the Brickyard, this track has been hosting motorsport events for over a century, and the drivers love the chance to etch their name into the history books.

Instead of racing on the 2.5 mile track that is most synonymous with the Indianapolis 500, NASCAR will take to the infield for 82 laps and 200 miles on the infield road course. This will be the second straight season with the event on the schedule.

A.J. Allmendinger won in a wild finish last season that saw a last lap penalty for cutting corners, and a spin by the leader, Denny Hamlin. Allmendinger doesn’t run full-time in the Cup Series anymore, so it was a true underdog story.

On Sunday, the. king of road courses himself, Chase Elliott, will take the green flag with a share of the best odds to win his 5th race of the season. One of Elliott’s strengths lie in the non-oval tracks, so he will be a threat once again, aiming for his 4th win in 6 races.

NASCAR Cup Series at the Brickyard Best Bets

Chase Elliott +550

Even when Chase Elliott doesn’t win, he still ends up getting credit with a victory. He finished 3rd last week at Pocono, but after Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch were disqualified due to post-race inspection, he was deemed the winner. That was already his 4th win of the year.

This week, he gets to race in his comfort zone, as the series tackles another road course. For a few years, he seemingly won every road course race, and finished well in the ones he did not win. This is looking to be the case again on Sunday.

The lines are being kind to bettors this week, as Elliott could very well have a huge lead. However, he isn’t even the outright favorite, and this is his greatest strength as a racer. With the season he has had, don’t expect anything to change this weekend when the green flag flies.

Daniel Suarez +750

Suarez is running very well this season, and he has been rewarded with a spot in the playoffs. He notched his first career win at Sonoma 6 races ago, and since that run, he has finished no worse than 15th.

He has improved this season with his new team in Trackhouse Racing, and over the past 6 races, his average finish is 6th. It’s another road course this week, and he has run well, finishing in the Top 5 in each of the last two road course races.

After 200 miles on Sunday, another strong finish could be in the works for this team. Suarez has improved as a racer, and it shows in the lines. He isn’t an underdog anymore, and he will be running up front with the contenders looking for win #2.

Denny Hamlin +2600

Hamlin won last week at Pocono, but was disqualified due to unapproved adjustments while the race was going on. He was stripped of the win, and now sits with only 2 wins and 5 Top 10s on the season.

The productivity has been low from Hamlin this year, but he was one lap away from winning this event last season. If it weren’t for a payback move by Chase Briscoe, he would have been in victory lane.

Hamlin is definitely more of a long shot pick this week, as his average finish this year is 20th. However, like I said, he should have won this race last year, and he usually runs well at road courses. Expect a rebound from last week’s misfortune.
