nh logo

The second half of the 2015 Sprint Cup season is here, and the New Hampshire 301 could go a long way in determining what Sprint Cup fans see over the next 18 races. Here’s a look at the NASCAR odds for Sunday’s New Hampshire 301.

The Favorite:

Kevin Harvick is 7/2 and has a decent track record at New Hampshire. He owns one career win and has finished 10th or better in half his career Sprint Cup starts. Still, there are nine other drivers with better average career finishes at the track.

The Contenders: 

Brad Keselowksi and Jimmie Johnson are 6/1. Joey Logano is 8/1. They are the only other drivers with single digit numbers. Of the three, Johnson and Keswlowski look like the safest picks. Johnson has the second best average finish among active drivers at New Hampshire. In 26 career starts, Johnson has three wins and ten finishes of fifth or better. Keselowski has one win at New Hampshire. But only four times has Keselowski finished 10th or worse at New Hampshire. Both should be factors this weekend.

The Other Names To Think About Sunday:

Denny Hamlin, Matt Kenseth and Jeff Gordon have all had recent and sustained success at New Hampshire. Hamlin and Kenseth are 12/1; Gordon is 15/1.

In terms of drivers with 2015 struggles, there are three names who could break out of their season-long funk.

  • Kyle Larson has two top-5 finishes at New Hampshire. He’s 20/1.
  • Tony Stewart has three career wins at New Hampshire. He’s 75/1.
  • Austin Dillon is seventh among active drivers when it comes to average finishing at New Hampshire. He’s 100/1.

Here’s how your favorite driver stacks up in the NASCAR odds for Sunday’s New Hampshire 301. Enjoy the second half of the 2015 Sprint Cup season, and insert a random catchphrase here.
