Best drivers and best bets for the 400

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

Better chances of winning
Denny Hamlin +400
Martin Truex Jr. +600
Kyle Busch +700
Kyle Larson+700

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