The first three races of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) playoffs are in the books, with Erik Jones, Kurt Busch, Ryan Newman and Aric Almirola failing to advance to the Round of 12.
The postseason continues Sunday at Dover, where Martin Truex Jr. earned a victory back in May.
To make this weekâs NASCAR Props Challenge picks, Iâll rely on betting odds to project expected driver performance, as well as race trends from the seasonâs previous race at Dover, which is the only event at the track using the current MENCS aero package.
While Alex Bowman, William Byron and Jimmie Johnson can work their ways into the top four, Chase Elliott is the Hendrick driver with the best chance.
But âexpectingâ one of these drivers to crack the top four over Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Denny Hamlin, Kyle Larson, Martin Truex Jr., etc. is too rich for my blood.
Eight current playoff drivers scored top 10s back in May. In addition, Erik Jones is the only non-playoff driver with better than 30-1 odds to win Sundayâs race, so Iâm taking the over.
At the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas, Hamlinâs 12-1 odds are slightly better than Loganoâs 14-1.
