Sprint Cup: Second-Half Value

Posted by Webster Washington on 7/3/2016 2:24:07 AM

July is here, and it's time to start sizing up contenders for the second half of the Sprint Cup season. The only thing that seems fairly certain is that Chase Elliott should cruise home to the Rookie of the Year prize. The rest is up for grabs. Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch are currently the points leaders. But here are some drivers who should offer NASCAR Sprint Cup betting value as we head into the second round at Daytona.

Top Value Plays

JOEY LOGANO has been In the top five in the last three races, so he's run as well as anyone recently. And he's still got some gas in that tank. I'm seeing a big second half for Logano, so don't be surprised to see him make a serious push in the Chase. His second victory is not far off.

KYLE BUSCH has more wins (three) and more top fives (nine) than anyone on the circuit. The Joe Gibbs Toyotas have been strong all season, and Kyle has carried the banner. We know it is hard to repeat, but you gotta give him his due.

CARL EDWARDS kind of surprised us all at the start of the year. Now he's had two wins and 11 top tens, so his presence at the end of races has become routine. Another in that Gibbs Toyota gang, he's for real.

Others to Watch

MARTIN TRUEX got a win in Charlotte, which soothed the bad memories of losing the Daytona 500 by inches. He may have a hill to climb in the Chase standings, but he has scores to settle, and a fast car to do it with.

TONY STEWART got a late start because of his injury before the season. But his win at Sonoma gives him an honest-to-goodness chance to make the Chase. Something tells me he's got enough to get in.

Kyle should be one of the favorites to capture the flag at the end of the season, since he's the defending champion. If he, Edwards or Logano show up at +800 or better in the futures odds to win the title, they deserve a close look. I suspect their numbers will become less appealing in NASCAR Sprint Cup betting as we go forward. I'm thinking Truex and Stewart should have at least one win left, too.
