NASCAR championship race: Odds, fantasy advice, prediction, sleepers, drivers to watch for Ford EcoBoost 400


With one race to determine the winner of NASCAR’s playoffs, this truly is anybody’s game.

NASCAR’s Championship 4 of Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Jr. and Joey Logano have had success at Homestead-Miami Speedway, but none of them have been dominant in victories.

The four drivers have combined for three wins in 52 combined races and none has won over once. But, they all happen to be in contention differently as they’ve combined for 33 top-10 finishes.

So who is going to come out on top this weekend? It’s hard to say. The fantastic money is on Busch or Harvick, as the two drivers have combined to win 16 races this season, but Truex is the defending champion and has four wins of his own this year, including one on a 1.5-mile trail in Kentucky.

We completely believe someone from the Championship 4 will come out on top and we’re choosing Busch to earn his second win in a row and first NASCAR championship since 2015.

The Ford EcoBoost 400 can be seen Sunday at 3 p.m. ET on NBC.

Which NASCAR drivers are perfect for your fantasy lineup at Homestead-Miami?
Kyle Larson has got the third best odds to succeed Homestead-Miami Speedway and for great reason. In five career NASCAR races at the course he’s finished in the top 5 times. In four trips to Miami from the Xfinity series he’s finished in the top 10 four times in four attempts. Three of those efforts were in the top . He also has nine top-10 endings on 1.5-mile tracks this year.

Brad Keselowski was in last year’s Championship 4, but was not able to come away with a win. This year he could be the guy to maintain one of the best four out of winning the race. Keselowski has two top 5s and four top 10s in his profession at Miami and has finished in the top 10 seven times in 10 1.5-mile races this past season.
