In 2021, Ryan Blaney finished only 0.077 seconds faster than William Byron, which was enough to earn him the victory. Bettors who placed their bet online on Blaney enjoyed a nice NASCAR payout.

Let’s check the latest news, stats, reports, and NASCAR odds for FireKeepers Casino 400. We’ve plenty of predictions for you to consider.

Reddick Looking for Another Victory

The most recent race that Tyler Reddick won was the Verizon 200 at Brickyard. He defeated Ross Chastain in a nail-biting battle that went into overtime. As it turned out, Chastain was required to serve a penalty for using an access road on the opening corner of a restart.

Reddick’s victory in the NASCAR Cup Series on the 2.439-mile, 14-turn Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course was his third this season, his career-second, and his second victory on a road course. The race took place at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Recent performances have shown that he is in excellent shape. On the other hand, he does not have any victories at MIS. His highest performance was an 18th-place showing in 2020. However, he has made significant progress since that time. When betting on NASCAR, he is rated at much better odds by most online sportsbooks.

Elliott Still the Favorite

As the current leader in the Drivers’ Championship standings, Chase Elliott is the favorite to win the race that will take place this weekend.

Elliott has won three of the previous six races. During that period, he has only had one race in which he did not finish in the top three, and that race was the Verizon 200 that took place over the weekend, in which he finished 16th.

However, none of his competitors for the title were able to make up ground on him, and they all ended behind him.

Given that Elliott has never before taken home the prize for the FireKeepers Casino 400, there is a possibility that betting on him this weekend might result in a profitable outcome.

Reddick vs Elliott Head-to-Head

Reddick surprised all fans and experts by winning the Verizon 200 race ahead of some well-established names. Nevertheless, he did win by only a tiny margin after his closest competitor was awarded a penalty. Therefore, one can only expect Elliott to come out on top at the MIS.

Elliott has been the best racer in NASCAR for some time now, leading the season by a significant margin. While the Verizon 200 wasn’t his best race, he will probably do better at the MIS ahead of all other racers, including Reddick.

FireKeepers Casino 400 Prediction

Elliott has never won the FireKeepers Casino 400, so there may be value in betting on him this weekend. However, Blaney may be a good pick in his quest for a second consecutive victory in the race.

Nevertheless, he hasn’t been in the top 10 in the past three races while holding second in the Drivers’ Championship. For sportsbook bettors, betting on NASCAR for a change can be a great experience.

Kevin Harvick should be given much credit this weekend for his track record in this race. At +2000, it would be worthwhile to take a bet on him matching the race’s all-time record. While Tyler Reddick has a good performance coming, there are better betting lines for other drivers that provide more value.

In the NASCAR betting lines, value options are Kyle Larson at +800 and Chase Elliot at +750. Nevertheless, the best pick is Kevin Harvick at +2000.
