CBS Sports (SportsLine) – Mike McClure
|Mike McLure||Kurt Busch|
McClure of SportsLine boasts of a NASCAR predictive model, has recorded some right picks earlier this season, including the win of Martin Truex Jr. in Sonoma and also predicted that Denny Hamlin will finish inside the top four at the Dayton 500. Of course, Hamlin didn’t just cross the finish line, he finished first overall, so you could say that McClure is definitely confident in his model that is liking the chances of Kurt Busch. The older Busch just got his first win of the season a couple of weeks ago and has four top 13s over his past five races. He has three wins in 36 races at Pocono Raceway.

|Pat DeCola||Kyle Busch|
DeCola of NASCAR.com has just published a power rankings list heading into the race in Long Pond, and it may come to no surprise to a lot of people that he’s got Kyle Bush on top of it. Busch followed up on his second-place finish in Kentucky with another top-10 finish, going eighth overall in New Hampshire. It’s really a no-brainer to pick Kyle Busch, as Team Joe Gibbs racer has won each of the last two editions of this upcoming race and has also won at Pocono Raceway last June during the Pocono 400.
Fake Teams (SB Nation) – Mark Abell

Mark Abell of Fake Teams is also very high on the Busch brothers. Noting that it’s a very obvious thing to pick Kyle Busch as a favorite to win the race, Abell thinks that it shouldn’t be much debated whether Kyle Busch is the driver to beat this coming weekend, especially since the younger Busch has won this race the last two times. As for Kurt Busch, Abell believes that the driver is also going to have a strong performance, given the fact that the Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix driver has had strong finishes over his last five appearances at Pocono Raceway.
TopBet Writer – Ryan Simpson
|Ryan Simpson||Denny Hamlin|
While most experts have their money on Kyle Busch, yours truly is thinking of another driver and that’s no other than Denny Hamlin, who’s been hot of late. Hamlin nearly notched his third win of the season in New Hampshire, where he settled for a runner-up finish. Prior to that, Hamlin was fifth in Kentucky. We think he’s going to continue his solid form in Long Pond, as he’s got four wins in 27 starts at Pocono Raceway.
