The NASCAR Monster Energy cup hits a street circuit this weekend, at Watkins Glen in central New York.

This is one of the calendar's shortest races at only 90 laps of the 3.4 mile track. Denny Hamlin won last week's race at odds of 10/1 and comes in this week slightly shorter at +900.

Kyle Busch wins at Watkins Glen

Kyle Busch is understandably favorite for the race, with odds of +275. He's won this event twice, in 2008 and 2013, and has been ultra-consistent at Watkins Glen International (results since 2008 are 1-4-8-3-7-1-40-2-6-7-3). That's nine top-ten finishes in his last ten visits, making it impossible to leave him out of your considerations.

The man in the best form in the series is undoubtedly Martin Truex, now up to fifth in the standings after winning four races in the last 13.

Martin Truex Jr

His form is somewhat up and down though, with finishes of 20th, 19th, and 35th in amongst that form.

In New York, he's been in the top ten on 8 of his last 11 visits to the track, so he must be considered.

At slightly bigger odds, Joey Logano looks a nice bet given his consistency at the venue.

The standings leader won here in 2015 and was second a year later. His last two outings here have yielded a 24th and 37th place respectively though. He'll need some luck to win in 2019.

Our Pick

Go for Joey Logano Top 3 finish at +300 with DraftKings. He has a fairly consistent record at 'The Glen', and leads the 2019 standings. It looks a good price.
