We are back, Race Fans! This weekend, we head to the Indianapolis Road Course, where most of the Cup Series drivers have never taken a lap. It should be an action-packed contest and we’ve got you covered with our best NASCAR bets, so let’s jump right in!
Our last article free plays featured Joey Logano, and we went 2-1 with a profit of 1.45 units.
Let’s stay hot today, as we see some great value with the hometown Indiana kid, Chase Briscoe.

Boosting Briscoe at the Indy
Although most of the Cup series guys don’t have any experience at this track, our main horse has had recent success here. Last year in the Xfinity series, Briscoe won an absolute thriller. During the final two laps, Briscoe out-dueled two of NASCARs finest road racers in AJ Allmendinger and Austin Cindric to lift the trophy.
Ryan Blaney has just two top-ten finishes over the previous eight road courses. Although he registered a win at the Charlotte Roval in 2018, Blaney’s recent form has not been nearly that good. The entire Penske organization struggled last weekend, and we look for that to continue.
Briscoe has registered three top-ten finishes out of five road course races this year, including last weekend at Watkins Glen. Although he is a Cup Series rookie, Briscoe’s skill at road courses has shown through. His average start position is 26th, yet he’s averaged a 14th place finish. He has a strong ability to maneuver through traffic and bring his car near the front.
Blaney’s recent form, coupled with Briscoe’s raw talent on the road course makes this head to head a must bet for us, and there’s a definite edge on Top-10 at + odds. Enjoy the race!
