Busch had his streak of top 10 finishes snapped at Homestead-Miami, when he finished 17th overall. But he seemed to be back to his ways again, as he placed ninth last Monday at Talladega Superspeedway. For that keeping count, that’s Busch’s sixth top-1o performance in seven races. On the season, Busch has three top 5s and nine top 9s in 13 starts. Busch also has his share of victories at Pocono Raceway, where he’s had three wins, 14 top 5s, and 20 top 10s in 37 career starts there. His career average finish at that track is 14.41.
|Expert||Top driver to watch out for|
|Steve Merril||William Byron|
|Rocky Atkinson||Kevin Harvick|
|Andy Lang||Austin Dillon|
William Byron has come out strong of late, with three straight starts of top 11 finishes. He’s also cracked the top 10 in three of his last five races. Byron, who’s coming off an 11th-place performance at Talladega Superspeedway, has a formidable track record at Pocono Raceway, albeit in a small sample size. Byron has a career average finish of 9.25 at Pocono Raceway and has finished inside the top six in each of his last three races there.
Although he is carrying a mediocre average finish of 19.08 at Pocono Raceway, Austin Dillon is a driver to watch out for by Andy Lang of WagerTalk TV. Dillon has a recent top-10 finish at Homestead-Miami before a bad showing (39th) at Talladega Superspeedway. At Dillon’s current value, Lang thinks the driver is a good pick to lay money on.
|Micah Roberts||Kyle Busch|
Busch fans must be growing weary of their favorite driver’s winless drought this season. However, totally dismissing Busch as a contender to win the 2020 Pocono 350 could haunt you. Busch is one of the most decorated drivers at Pocono Raceway, as he has three wins there, which he all collected over a five-race stretch since 2017.

For TopBet News Editor, Ryan Simpson, it’s Kyle Busch, who’ll rule the Pocono 350 this coming weekend. Busch is due for a win, as last year’s NASCAR Cup Series champ is still without a victory this season. After finishing 32nd at Talladega last Monday, Busch should have extra motivation to come back stronger. For one, Busch has three wins in his last five starts at Pocono Raceway, including back-to-back at the 2018 Gander Outdoors 400 and 2019 Pocono 400.
