The O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 is upon us, as the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup brings the action to the Texas Motor Speedway, an intermediate track that is 1.5 miles long. Last week, Kyle Busch fell short of nailing his third win in a row, as Brad Keselowski pulled the rug underneath him, upsetting the order of things along with many professional auto racing expert predictions in the process. Will Busch recapture his lethal form? Let’s see what the key authorities are saying about this race.
Expert Picks and Predictions for the NASCAR O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 Monster Energy Cup Series Race on March 31 2019
Where: Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas.
When: Sunday, March 31, 2019, green flag at 2:00 PM ET
WSN – World Sports Network
WSN didn’t outright state their specific pick to win this coming weekend’s race in Texas, but after reading between the lines, WSN is VERY confident of Kyle Busch’s chances to take home the bacon. It’s hard to argue against that kind of prejudice to the Team Joe Gibbs Racing star, as Busch has been fantastic to say the least thus far this season. After back-to-back wins in Phoenix and in California, Busch failed to extend his winning streak when he faltered at Martinsville Speedway last Sunday. And by falter, we mean he finished third, so expect Busch to be among the contenders to win the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 this year. WSN also considers Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano as among the favorites.
Sports Chat Place

Similar to WSN, Sports Chat Place forced a more in-depth look of their O’Reilly 500 analysis to pull a pick to top the field in Texas. In the end, while noncommittal, the site puts Busch’s name on top of its list of the driver everyone should be taking a look at. As mentioned by Sports Chat Place, Busch is having a spectacular start to the season, with two wins and an impressive average 2.6 average finish. Winning the O’Reilly three times before also adds to Sports Chat Place’s list of reasons why Busch is a driver to watch this weekend – again. Busch is the defending champion of this event.
PredictEm.com also has chimed in on predicting the winner of the 2019 O’Reilly and the site selects – say it with me – Kyle Busch. At this point of the season, no one is hotter, more inspiring, more terrifying at the track than Busch, who has won three of the last five races in Texas during the spring, per PredictEm.com. Obviously, Busch has a very good feel of the track, as evidenced by his numerous success in Texas, and when a driver has that to go along with a hot start, it’s hard to go bet against him.

TopBet’s resident columnist and NASCAR maven is also going with the clear frontrunner for this Monster Energy Cup Series race. Beyond Busch, Simpson names Brad Keselowski as the other favorite, so if you’re not feeling Toyota’s golden child then Brad may be worth your betting bucks on this event. That said, if you like sleepers, then Simpson thinks Erik Jones and Clint Bowyer are your boys. And for those looking to take home a big payday on a long shot, it looks like your best is to be Daniel Suarez. Read Ryan’s complete O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 picks and predictions.
