Prime Sports NASCAR – weekly picks

Eric picked up his eighth win of the season and creeps closer to the positive line again. He heads to the Coca-Cola 600 -$103. CJ also has eight wins but is -$342. Greg fell to -$820 in COTA. This week we go to Charlotte where our trio of experts all agreed on two drivers – Kyle Larson (6-1) and William Byron (16-1).

Rightfully so too. Larson has three straight runner ups this season and Byron with a top 11 in literally every race since leaving Daytona.

Eric went with favorites Martin Truex Jr. (4-1), Chase Elliott (5-1) and Kyle Busch (6-1) as Truex has dominated this track recently, Elliott having what should have been two wins there last year on the oval and Busch being at his best on 550 tracks in 2021. His longer shots are the RCR duo of Tyler Reddick (40-1) and Austin Dillon (66-1).

CJ agreed on Truex and Busch but traded Elliott for Hamlin this week. His only other driver is Alex Bowman.

Greg’s second driver is 10-1 (Joey Logano) as he went for more of a longer shot pack.
