- NASCAR's Federated Auto Parts 400 will go green at 7:30 p.m. ET (NBCSN) at Richmond Raceway.
- Using performances at similar racetracks, PJ Walsh details a driver to target for a top-10 finish at +220 odds.
The NASCAR Cup Series playoffs roll on with a visit to Richmond Raceway for Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400 (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN).
Richmond is an action-packed, 0.75-mile short track that offers plenty of tire falloff and multiple grooves of racing.
And speaking of tires, teams will run the same combination on Saturday as they did at Phoenix and New Hampshire, both short, flat tracks as well, earlier this season.
As a result, I’m looking heavily at results from those two races to determine my Federated Auto Parts 400 bets, and after doing so landed on one extremely undervalued driver to score a top-10 finish.
NASCAR at Richmond Odds, Betting Pick
Matt DiBenedetto has been a very strong performer on this tire combination this season, yet is way down the odds board at 80-1 to win the race outright.
I’m not ready to make that wager just yet, but am very comfortable betting him to finish in the top 10.
Matty D. posted the ninth-best driver rating at Phoenix in March and was even better at New Hampshire, evidenced by his seventh-best driver rating and a sixth-place finish.
DiBenedetto’s speed on tracks similar to Richmond, as well as on this tire combination, make him a solid bet at +220 odds to finish in the top 10 on Saturday night.
The Bet: Matt DiBenedetto (+220) for a Top-10 Finish
