NASCAR Cup Series FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan Odds and Best Bets: Chevy and Toyota to Have Good Runs

World Cup

It’s already time for the 23rd race of the Cup Series season, and the playoffs are rapidly approaching. With 4 races to go until the playoffs begin, 14 drivers have notched wins and already clinched their spots in the 16 driver field.

The fight for the last 2 playoff spots will continue at Michigan International Speedway. The track offers a unique 2 mile layout with high speeds and plenty of action. The new package this season with the Gen 6 car should make it more competitive down to the last moments.

Last season, Ryan Blaney held off multiple drivers for a victory that cemented his spot in the Round of 16. He drives for Ford, and this year, 10 of the Top 12 spots in FanDuel’s odds are occupied by Chevy and Toyota.

It’s a tie at the top this week between Chase Elliott and Kyle Busch. Two of the top championship contenders will surely provide storylines in this race, as they look to improve upon their already solid playoff positioning.

NASCAR Cup Series at Michigan Best Bets

Chase Elliott +800

It’s no surprise to see Elliott at the top of this list each week, but with a chance for win #5 on the year, there is good reason to be sitting pretty. His 15 Top 10s in 22 races leads the entire series, and he has a massive 18 point lead in playoff points.

Chase has two more victories than anyone else in the field, and even if one of those was due to disqualifications, he still ran well enough to put himself in the position for a win. He finished 8th last year, but he is having a way better season to this point.

The value in Elliott this week is through the roof compared to last week. At +800 he is not a crazy big favorite, which provides a better return on your bet. He is always a safe pick, but when value is added to safety, it’s a no-brainer.

Kyle Busch +460

Much like Chase Elliott, Kyle Busch finds himself atop the odds this week with a huge opportunity to jump up in the playoff standings. He is currently 11th with 1 win on the season, but the results show a much better racer than that.

Busch had a good run last season, finishing 7th at Michigan and claiming 42 valuable points late in the season. With his 11 Top 10s and 6 Top 5s this year, it makes sense why he is expected to run well on Sunday.

Just like Elliott, Busch is not a crazy favorite, so the value will be similar. Consistency is high, and the racing history for Busch should build even more confidence if you are on the fence about pulling the trigger.

Ryan Blaney +1400

Shockingly, Ryan Blaney still hasn’t found victory lane this season. Even though he is 5th in playoff points, his spot in the Round of 16 is not confirmed yet. A win on Sunday would surely lock him in, so be on the lookout for a good run.

The returning champion of the event has 7 Top 5s this season and 5 stage wins. His best finish this season came a few weeks back at Nashville. He finished in 3rd place, but had a good enough run to compete for the win.

Even though it didn’t count for points, Blaney did win the All-Star Race this season, so he has the capability to finish off a good run. If the cards fall the same way they did last season, Blaney should be up front at the end of the 200 lap shootout on Sunday.
