Top drivers and best bets for the AutoTrader EchoPark Automotive 500

Playoff drivers have the four best moneylines at BetMGM entering the weekend comprising Denny Hamlin (+600), Christopher Bell (+650), Larson (+700) and Elliott (+800). Kyle Busch, who has seen marked success in the Cup and Xfinity Series at Texas, has the best odds among non-playoff drivers remaining at +1000 along with Martin Truex Jr., who missed the playoffs by a quarter-panel.

Yahoo Sports’ Nick Bromberg is still fading Chastain in the playoffs but suggests finding value in Tyler Reddick at +1400 or Elliott’s and Larson’s Hendrick Motorsports teammate Alex Bowman at +2000.

Weather forecast for the AutoTrader EchoPark Automotive 500

It will be blisteringly hot for both Saturday’s practice and qualifying as well as Sunday’s race. Temperatures are forecast for the mid-90s both days the Cup Series is on track, so count on tire degradation being as much a concern as fuel economy for Sunday’s race.
