Erik Jones is a superb decide at 20/1 with a mean 5.5 end in his two profession races at Pocono. The Michigan native is 2 races faraway from a prime-7 end at Kansas and with nice numbers at Pocono he can be foolish to cross on.

There have been few drivers with extra success than Jimmie Johnson at nearly each monitor in NASCAR and Pocono is not any exception. He has three wins in his profession at Pocono Raceway and could also be figuring some issues out after a prime-5 end at Charlotte. At 50/1 he is the right discount.

As talked about earlier than there have been seven totally different winners within the final seven races at Pocono, so why do not we go together with a person who has by no means gained as soon as? Chase Elliott has forty/1 odds, has completed within the prime 10 in three of his final 4 races at Pocono and has completed within the prime 12 in every of his final 5 races in 2018.

Kurt Busch could also be the perfect guess on this whole race with three profession wins and 9 prime 10s to his identify at Pocono. He’s additionally driving very nicely with 4 prime 10s in a row. This can be his place to seize his first win of the season.
