Underdog Betting Preview for the Cook Out Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway NASCAR Cup Series Race on September 4, 2022
- Where: Darlington Raceway, South Carolina, United States.
- When: Sunday, September 4, 2022 at 6 p.m. ET.
Ross Chastain (Odds +800)
Our first underdog pick is Ross Chastain. This driver had a great start to the season with two victories and is in third place in the Championship. However, in the last 6 meetings of the Nascar Cup Series, he has not had such favorable results. The highest position he reached was 18th and the lowest was 33rd in the last race, the Coke Zero Sugar 400.
Ryan Blaney (Odds +1400)
Our second underdog pick is Ryan Blaney. This driver had a rather poor start to the season. However, he has gradually and steadily picked up the pace, which allowed him to qualify for the playoffs with 8 top 5 and 12 top 10 finishes. Of the drivers competing in the playoffs, he had the second-best result in the top 6. Because of this, we believe he could win the race.
Kevin Harvick (Odds +1600)
Kevin Harvick has had a pretty consistent season. In fact, he has barely cracked the top 10 and his most recent wins were at the FireKeepers Casino 400 and the Federated Auto Parts 400. Although in the last two races his final result dropped a bit, we are confident that he has been consistent and that he will be able to overcome to receive his third victory of the season.
Well, these are our underdog picks for this NASCAR Cup Series Sunday. Tell us in the comments, who you think is most likely to win this weekend?
