Kevin Harvick won last year’s race, and the four years prior saw wins by Denny Hamlin, Kurt Busch, Kyle Busch, and Harvick in 2016. This year, Harvick is installed at +1100 to win by DraftKings Sportsbook. Kyle Busch is favored at +400, followed by Kyle Larson (+450), Denny Hamlin (+600), Chase Elliott (+800), and Joey Logano (+1000). Pole-sitter Martin Truex, Jr. is +1800 to win.

This is the third and final race in the round of 16. Hamlin opened the playoffs with a win at the Cook Out Southern 500 at Darlington and then Truex won the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond. Hamlin, Truex, and Larson currently top the playoff field. Alex Bowman, Tyler Reddick, William Byron, and Michael McDowell are the four drivers projected to miss the cut to 12.
