Bovada has listed a prop on which car manufacturer will take victory lane in the Federated Auto Parts 400.

Winning Manufacturer Odds

  • Ford +115
  • Toyota +125
  • Chevrolet +400

Winner: Toyota (+125). Toyota has won the last two Federated Auto Parts 400 and although they don’t have the shortest odds this year to win the +125 odds are too good to pass up on. Joe Gibbs Racing with Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. both will be in the hunt with Toyota cars and while Ford might seem like the best option, history tells us a Toyota car will be parked in victory lane this Saturday. Ford’s odds do have a shot as Kevin Harvick will start at the pole but if he can’t stay at the front of the pack for most of this race there won’t be a good chance any car other than a Toyota wins.

Group Betting at the Federated Auto Parts 400

One of the more creative ways to bet on NASCAR is through group betting. This method takes four drivers and whichever one finishes the highest of the group wins. Bovada has a variety of different groups to choose from.

Group B Winner Odds

  • Brad Keselowski +125
  • Joey Logano +225
  • Chase Elliott +350
  • Erik Jones +445

Winner: Joey Logano +225. Logano will start this race with better positioning than anyone in his group and that alone should give him the edge over Brad Keselowski. This will be a tightly contested race between these two who are just one point apart in the Cup Series Standings. Keselowski has recorded more wins and top-five finishes than Logano this year. However, Logano has been the better driver as of late and bettors should ride his hot wheels to a finish over Keselowski at Richmond Raceway this weekend.
