Denny Hamlin (+725) – The Favorite

Things are seemingly lined up perfectly for Denny Hamlin on Sunday and it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to find him as the betting favorite with online sportsbooks.

Hamlin is not only the defending champion of the event but he also won the South Point 400 last weekend. Furthermore, Hamlin has pole position for the race just as he did a year ago when he crossed the finish line first.

The top placement was no fluke either as Hamlin had finished fourth and third in his two races at the course prior to the win.

Brad Keselowski (+1300) – Looking For Third Win

Brad Keselowski has won six times in his career at the Talladega Superspeedway including twice in the YellaWood 500. His last win came in 2017 but his team, Team Penske, has had an incredible amount of success at the track having won nine of the last 14 Cup Series races at Talladega. His track record suggests he’ll be in contention towards the end and that’s more than half the battle in a race like this.

Joey Logano (+950) - Another Team Penske Option

Another Team Penske member, Joey Logano, could be in line for a successful ride. Since the team has won five of the last seven YellaWood 500’s, it’s hard to ignore Team Penske. Those betting on NASCAR should take note of Logano’s four top-five finishes in his last eight races at Talladega.

Not only does he place towards the top but he has shown the ability to win as well, with three wins at the track. To add fuel to the fire, he’ll be looking for revenge after he was flipped by Hamlin at the track earlier this year.

The race will start on Sunday, October 3 at 2 p.m. EST and can be seen on NBC.
