2021 Federated Auto Parts 400 Favorites Analysis

Brad Keselowski won the 2020 Federated Auto Parts 400 followed by Martin Truex Jr. and Joey Logano. Of the three, Martin Truex Jr. should offer the lowest odds to win the 2021 Federated Auto Parts.

Truex Jr. won’t go off the chalk, Denny Hamlin and Kyle Larson will. If the odds are overlaid consider backing Truex Jr. to take the checkered flag. During the playoffs is when Martin does his best driving, which is why he should be the one favorite bettors look to put some money behind.

Neither of the two top favorites, Hamlin nor Larson, had a great Federated Auto Parts 400. To be fair, Larson sat out the race due to a suspension. Hamlin clocked in twelfth, well behind Keselowski.

Of the two chalks, Larson is the better play. He’s had a resurgence this season and Hamlin didn’t have a good run in last year’s event.

2021 Federated Auto Parts 400 Top Underdog Picks

Underdog players should look at five drivers. The first is Kyle Busch. The younger Busch brother had to pay a $50,000 fine for an unsafe garage entrance after a crash at Darlington. Kyle should use the fine as motivation for Saturday’s event. Not only that, but like Alex Bowman, another driver in our underdog five, Kyle must finish well to ensure he races after Sep. 18, the first playoff cut day.

Bowman finished ninth in last year’s event. He could improve enough this year to win at massive odds. Chase Elliott may offer overlay odds. If he does, he’ll be a good pick. Aric Almirola and Kevin Harvick both have a chance. For Harvick, it’s been a strange season.

A perennial favorite to win the Cup, Harvick has yet to grab a pole or win a race. But he does have 7 top 5 finishes from 17 races. Harvick could get hot starting this Saturday. Make sure the odds are at least fair before backing the Stewart-Haas driver, though.
