Top 2020 Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 predictions

For the 2020 Foxwoods Resort Casino 301, the model is high on Kurt Busch, even though he's a massive 28-1 long shot in the latest NASCAR at New Hampshire odds. He's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. The 2004 NASCAR Cup Series champion continues to be one of the top drivers in the sport, with 12 top-10 finishes in 19 starts so far in 2020.

Busch has a streak of 17 consecutive top-20 finishes and will aim for his 32nd career NASCAR Cup Series victory on Sunday at a track he knows extremely well. Busch is a three-time winner at "The Magic Mile" and has 15 top-10 finishes in New Hampshire. He'll begin from 10th position in the 2020 Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 starting lineup.

And a massive shocker: Kevin Harvick, the top Vegas favorite at 14-5, stumbles and doesn't make it to victory lane. There are far better values in this loaded field. Harvick has four wins in Loudon and has sprinted out to a 97-point lead in the 2020 NASCAR standings.

While he's riding a streak of six consecutive top-five finishes, he hasn't finished better than fourth in the last three races despite starting on the pole in Kansas last week. He's had 20 career top-10 finishes in 36 starts at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, but he's also finished outside the top 20 on 10 occasions.

How to make 2020 Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 picks

The model is also targeting four other drivers with 2020 NASCAR at New Hampshire odds of 12-1 or longer to make a serious run at the checkered flag. Anyone who backs these drivers could hit it big. You can only see them here.
