Picks & Predictions: To win the MONSTER Energy NASCAR series outright
The NASCAR Cup Season Series has come down to the wire. We have four of the best in the game left, and we’ve got the two to keep your eyes on in Miami.
Martin Truex Jr. (3.50)
The 39-year old New Jersey man, Martin Truex Jr. has been one of the best drivers of the 2019 NASCAR Series, and he’s not unfamiliar with the Homestead circuit.
The driver of the no. 19 Toyota has been putting in consistent races on this circuit throughout the season. He’s leading the series outright with 7 victories.
He’s been excellent of late, putting in top-six finishes in each of his last four races. He was excellent at Martinsville Speedway and will look to replicate that here.
Truex Jr. knows what it’s like to win. He took the title back in 2017 and has the opportunity to take another title here. He will come into this with an air of optimism, knowing he has a win and a runner-up in his last two starts here.
However, the fact he only managed a 12th place finish or worse in his previous three outings, will give the other drivers a little boost of confidence.
Take Martin Truex Jr. to get another title here.

Kevin Harvick (3.80)
Kevin Harvick has been the one to watch this season. He’s been consistent throughout the NASCAR season, he’s driven 177 laps led and an average finish of 7.3. He won the competition back in 2014 and will look to take it again in Florida.
Harvick has seen success of the Miami Speedway before, posting the best average finish of the Championship 4 group over the past 14 races.
In his last five starts at Homestead, he’s finished at least fourth and with a win there too. He’s shown himself to be a real contender with his record here; he’s managed to finish in the top 10 in every one of his last 11 starts here.
Take Kevin Harvick to take the title in Miami.

Kyle Busch (3.75)
The 34-year old Las Vegas man is the kid within the top-flight of racers going into this one, but won’t worry about this when he makes his way onto the track in Miami.
Kyle Busch had an excellent run at the start of the season, putting up four wins in his first 14 races. But he hasn’t recorded a single win since. He is long overdue a win and will be acutely aware of how close he is.
Being the underdog is a position he should relish, with the eyes on the other contenders it’ll give him space to breathe and express himself on Sunday.
He is the all-time leader in the NASCAR national series wins - will the two-time Monster Energy Series champion deliver a third this weekend?
Take Kyle Busch to win.
Picks & Predictions: To win the Ford EcoBoost 400
The Iconic Homestead Miami Speedway is contested over 267 laps on the 1.5 mile oval. It is the 36th and final race in the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season.
Kyle Larson (9.00)
The No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 driver has recorded 1 win and 8 top 5 finishes throughout the series. He took the win in the Drydene 400, at the Dover International Speedway.
That victory marked the sixth of his career. He’s posted an average of 8.5 finish in six starts at Homestead, achieving three Top 5s in his last four starts.
Larson has also led at least 45 laps in three consecutive races. His aggressive style of driving means he’ll be in contention in this one and will certainly consider himself the one to win it on Sunday.
Nobody runs the high line better than Larson right now. The question is whether he can keep off the wall for the entire race, if he can manage it then he’ll be in with a shot.
Take Kyle Larson to win the Ford EcoBoost 400.
