Event Matchup & Betting Odds

Date: Sunday, August 28, 2022

Time: 10:00 AM


Track: Daytona International Speedway

Bubba Wallace is the current favorite to win today’s Coke Zero 400 at +850, followed by Ryan Blaney and Chase Elliott at +1000, respectively. Denny Hamlin is +1200, while Joey Logano and Kyle Larson – last week’s winner – are +1300, respectively. Other midrange long-shots include Ross Chastain at +1500, Kyle Busch at +1600 and Erik Jones, Martin Truex Jr. and William Byron at +1900, respectively.

Coke Zero 400 Predictions

OPTION 1: Joey Logano (+1300)

At Daytona, Logano has one win, six top-fives and nine top-10s, with an average finish of 18.259, which is seventh-best. His 87.9 Driver Rating is also fourth-best, as well as six top-fives and nine top-10s. Seventy-four percent of the winners at Daytona come from the top-10 in terms of starting position and 46.03% from a top-five starting position. Coming off a strong performance last week, I like Logano to be in the mix again today.

OPTION 2: Kevin Harvick (+2500)

With this being the final regular-season race, I’m throwing in some realistic long shots. In 42 races at Daytona, Harvick has two wins (most of any active driver outside of Denny Hamlin), 11 top-fives and 16 top-10s. He’s also starting inside the top-10 (No. 7) and his average finish among active drivers at Daytona is sixth-best. If you’re looking for experience, a decent starting position and at least one win at Daytona, Harvick fits the bill.

OPTION 3: Kyle Busch (+1600)

Busch already clinched a spot in the 2022 FedExCup playoffs, so the pressure is off today. At Daytona, Busch has collected one win, eight top fives, ten top 10s and one pole, with an average finish of 19.324, which is ninth-best among active drivers. In fact, he leads all active drivers in runner-up finishes at Daytona, with four (2019, 2016, 2007, 2006). Will he win? Probably not considering he’s not in the top-10 to start, but if you’re looking at head-to-head props or even a top-3 prop, Busch should be considered.
