Top drivers and best bets for the Highpoint.com 400

Denny Hamlin has the most wins ever at Pocono with six and is thus a 4-to-1 favorite heading into the weekend according to BetMGM. Championship standings leader Martin Truex Jr., who has two wins at Pocono, has the next-best moneyline at +600. Kyle Busch has four wins at the track and shares a +700 moneyline with Kyle Larson, who hasn’t won there but sports nine top-10 finishes in 15 starts there.

Best odds to win
Denny Hamlin +400
Martin Truex Jr. +600
Kyle Busch +700
Kyle Larson +700

Yahoo Sports’ Nick Bromberg wrote earlier in the week on betting the Highpoint.com 400 and suggests good mid-tier value in the Toyotas of Christopher Bell and Tyler Reddick (+1200 apiece) given that Bell is Hamlin and Truex’s teammate and Reddick drives for the team co-owned by Hamlin.
