When you write as many articles as I do (#HumbleBrag), introductions can be all over the place.
In my case, they're often very game specific, but sometimes I simply write about what's going on in my life.
This weekend my wife and I are in Las Vegas for a late anniversary trip, and I know what many of you are thinking: "yawn."
So, if you haven't already, just skip to the bottom.
However! We will be in Vegas for NASCAR race weekend, which, as I'm sure you know, means we will be betting on Sunday's South Point 400 (2:30 p.m. ET, NBC).
After perusing the latest practice data and qualifying results, here is my favorite bet for Sunday's NASCAR race at Las Vegas.
NASCAR Picks for Las Vegas
This bet has value for two very different reasons.
First off, Erik Jones was very fast in practice, posting the third-fastest five-lap average. He did struggle to a 22nd-place starting spot in qualifying, but he should have no trouble maneuvering to the front with a fast race car.
And perhaps more importantly is the value we can find on Jones scoring a top-10 finish today at Las Vegas by simply shopping for the best odds.
However, FanDuel is offering a significantly better price, +210, for Jones to finish among the top 10 cars in Sunday's South Point 400.
Is there reason to think that Jones will not be as fast this afternoon? Absolutely.
But getting such a big number on this compared to the rest of the market makes it a must-bet for me.
The bet: Jones +210 for a Top-10 Finish
