NASCAR Betting: 2014 Coke Zero 400 Picks

By Scott

The 2014 Coke Zero 400 is on Saturday night at the Daytona International Speedway. These restrictor plate races are always exciting and you never know who will end up winning. Another benefit is that every driver in the field will be paying at least 10/1 odds.

2014 Coke Zero 400 Race Preview

Dale Earnhardt Jr (10/1) won the Daytona 500 this year and had two T10 finishes last year on this track as well. He has had plenty of success on this track, but he hasn’t won the Coke Zero race since 2001. Earnhardt Jr is also in excellent form coming into the race.

He has finished inside of the T10 in five consecutive races, which includes a win at Pocono. Earnhardt Jr is always going to be a top contender at Daytona, but I’m not on him to win. I expect a T10 finish, but I like a couple other drivers to win over him this week.

Last year Jimmie Johnson (12/1) won the Coke Zero 400 and Daytona 500. He also finished in 5th place this year in the Daytona 500 and his form on this track is excellent. He has cooled down a bit recently with 7th and 10th place finishes in the L2 Sprint Cup races.

Tony Stewart (15/1) will get a lot of attention this week, but I won’t consider him at these odds. Stewart has won this race four times since 2005, but this year has been a struggle with his best finish being a 4th place. He only has four finishes in the T10 this year.

Matt Kenseth (12/1) has the 2nd best driver rating at Daytona in the L2 years. He has multiple wins on this track and if you takeaway his two poor results from last year he’s almost always in the T10. Kenseth finished 4th last week after a poor run of three races.

If you want to target an outside contender this week look no further than Ryan Newman (30/1). In the L2 years in this race Newman has finished in 10th place and 5th place. Newman finished 3rd last week and now has two T10 finishes in the L4 Sprint Cup races.

I’m going with Johnson and Kenseth both to win this week. I’ll be looking to use Newman in match-up markets also, as I expect him to finish in the T10. Stewart is a driver I’ll be looking to fade this week at Daytona, as this whole year has been bad for him.

· My Picks: Jimmie Johnson +1200 & Matt Kenseth +1200
