Saturday, September 12
With the NFL stealing the spotlight on Sunday, NASCAR will be running under the lights on Saturday in Richmond, Virginia. This will be the first time NASCAR visits Richmond and they will race under the lights next Saturday as well in Bristol, Tennessee. I did manage to go 3-3 last week but that did include my +230 group prop that had Eric Jones to get it done and he did with an impressive fourth place finish. That now takes my Six Pack of Props record to a beyond impressive 84-34-1 record. Well, here we go with 6 more props as we roll through Richmond on Saturday night.
Six Pack of Props
-155 Top 5 Finish Martin Truex, Jr.
Truex who both times in Richmond a season ago and scored a third place finish in 2018.
+105 Jimmy Johnson over Erik Jones
Johnson has finished higher than Jones in 4 straight races in Richmond and scored a top 10 finish last time here. Also, in the last race in Richmond, Jones finished in dead last.
-140 Kyle Busch over Brad Keselowski
I’m a sucker for Kyle again even though he has been my kryptonite in racing this season. He’s been to good at this track and I can’t pass it up. In his last 3 races at Richmond he has a win and second and another top 10 finish.
-115 Tyler Reddick over Austin Dillon
Dillon ran his best race of the season last week in Darlington, but he comes back to the pack in this spot. Reddick has ran impressively at times this campaign and I fully expect him to do it this week plus, this line is a bit phony considering how Dillon ran last week he should be around a -135 favorite.
-140 Ryan Blaney over Kurt Busch
Blaney has a win this season and has 4 more top 5 finishes this season than Kurt has ( 8 to 4 ). Blaney had also led for 586 laps this year and Kurt has just 96 to his credit.
Winner of Group
+200 Christopher Bell
+250 Tyler Reddick
+250 Cole Custer
+275 Ryan Newman
I’m going to take the old man in this bet over the three youngsters. I’m going on a reach but Ryan Newman in his last 6 races at this track has 5 top 10 finishes.
