Prime Sports NASCAR – weekly picks for this weekend at Pocono

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, same on me. Well, what about fool me four times…..Last week, none of us three went with Kyle Larson to win at Nashville. His odds were too low for us to really do anything with. Since the Ally 400 was an inaugural event, why go with just one driver?

Well, Larson led most of the race in dominating fashion. So, with 2-1 odds, would anyone just go all out on Larson for Saturday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at the Pocono Raceway?

Eric did.

He put all $100 on Larson this weekend. I mean, why not? Larson, has a top two finish in literally every race run since Darlington. After that, he was a red flag away from a potential win in COTA. The week prior to COTA, Alex Bowman’s team beat Larson’s on the final pit stop. If that doesn’t happen, Larson is a winner of five straight, not three.

So, for a track at Pocono where it features long straights and a place to where Hendrick Motorsports to can shine again, why not go with Larson?

He was runner-up in this very race in 2018 with Ganassi.

Greg went all in on another HMS driver in William Byron (9-1). Byron, has four top 10’s in his last five Pocono starts and a top 10 in all but four races this season. Three are road courses and one is a superspeedway.

Eric or Greg could win $200 on Saturday and really make a leap.

CJ went the other direction. He took three Joe Gibbs Racing cars, two HMS cars, Kevin Harvick, Ryan Blaney and Kurt Busch.

Kurt is his big one with a potential $200 win with the rest ranging from $4-$40 wins.
