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

With one race to decide the champion of NASCAR’s playoffs, this really is anyone’s game.

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

The four drivers have combined for three wins in 52 combined races and not one has won over once. But, all of them happen to be in contention differently as they’ve combined for 33 top-10 finishes.

So who will come out on top this weekend? It is difficult to say. The fantastic money is on Busch or even 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 season, including one on a 1.5-mile track in Kentucky.

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

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

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

Brad Keselowski was in last year’s Championship 4, but was unable to come out with a win. This season he is the man to maintain one of the top four out of winning the race. Keselowski has two leading 5s and four top 10s in his career in Miami and has finished in the top 10 seven times at 10 1.5-mile races this past year.
