PJ Walsh of the Action Network named two drivers with relatively long odds, but have the potential to return high value. These two are A.J. Allmendinger and Chase Briscoe, who have odds of +2200 and +8000, respectively, at TopBet Sportsbook. Allmendinger has a win and three top 5s in 22 career road course starts. As for Briscoe, Walsh draws confidence from the fact that this driver has had success in the road course during his XFINITY Series days.

Looking for a long-shot pick? Covers has Michael McDowell (+6600) and Briscoe as among those who can deliver the surprise this coming weekend. McDowell finished eight at the Daytona Road Course last February and has cracked the top 12 in three of his last four road course starts.

“Blaney is coming off a 12th-place finish in the Drydene 400, but he’s cracked the top 10 in two of his past five starts. He went ninth in Talladega and eighth at Darlington. What’s more pertinent to his chances of winning this weekend is the fact that he has a career average finish of 13.31 in 13 road course starts, including his win in the 2018 Bank of America ROVAL 400 at Charlotte Motor Speedway Road Course.”
