Where: Atlanta Motor Speedway, Hampton

SportsLine likes the chances of William Byron to win this weekend despite the driver finishing just 33rd in the last Cup race in the Jockey Made in America Presented by Kwik Trip at Road America. Byron has eight top 5s this season and 14 top 10s in 20 starts. Currently sixth on the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series standings, Byron finished eighth in his most recent appearance at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, which was during the 2021 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 just last March.

Harvick remains winless this season, but if there’s one among the remaining races on the schedule where he could end his drought, it’s got to be here at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, where he has twice in four starts since February of 2018. Overall in his career, he has won three times with nine top 5s and 16 top 10s in 31 career starts on that track, while also having a 15.58 average finish.
|William Blackwell||Kevin Harvick|
Harvick is also the pick of William Blackwell to win this coming Sunday in Hampton. The NASCAR Cup Series regular champion back in 2020 is coming off a 27th-place finish in the 2021 Jockey Made in America 250 Presented by Kwik Trip, but he’s finished inside the top 10 in thre of four races since the All-Star Race.

Here’s what TopBet’s Ryan Simpson said about Kyle Busch in our preview of the the2021 Quaker State 400 race:
“Busch is getting in the groove. He has finished inside the top three in all of his last three races, a stretch that includes his win in the Pocono 350 late last June. That’s a nice setup for Busch heading into perhaps one of his most favorite tracks. Busch has two wins, seven top 5s, and 10 top 10s in 23 career starts at Atlanta Motor Speedway. He’s also not finished worse than seventh in all of his last four appearances there. This season, the Joe Gibbs Racing star has two wins and nine top 5s with 13 top 10s in 20 starts.”
