NASCAR Cup Series Pocono Outright Winner Tips: The Time has Finally Come for Truex Jr. and Blaney to Triumph This Season

NASCAR Cup Series Pocono Outright Winner Tips

Key Stat: Martin Truex Jr. has been one of the best drivers this season but is yet to record a win

Tip Reasoning

  • Truex Jr. needs a win to secure a spot in the playoffs
  • Martin has led 281 laps over the last four races, more than any other driver
  • His team has won seven of the previous nine races at the speedway

Pocono returns to the single-race schedule this year after we witnessed two separate races on Saturday and Sunday last year. Both were fabulous, the first (325 miles) won by Alex Bowman who stole the triumph off of Kyle Larson who blew a tire and crashed from the leading position in the final corner of the race. The second (350 miles) was dominated by Kyle Busch. This year, we will witness a single 400-mile race at Pocono Speedway on Sunday afternoon. The start is scheduled for 3:00 pm, while the TV coverage will be available at the USA Network.

After Christopher Bell’s victory last weekend in New Hampshire, all eyes are set at Martin Truex Jr. who is shockingly yet to clinch a victory in 2022 despite being among the best drivers in the NASCAR Cup Series points-wise this term. As a matter of fact, Truex Jr. is fourth in the overall standings for points. However, to secure a spot in the playoffs he has to win a race. This is an ideal opportunity for him to do so, especially since Joe Gibbs Racing showed great form with Bell’s win seven days ago. We will back Truex Jr at the +1000 odds.  

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Ryan Blaney is third in the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series standings

  • Blaney is, however, winless so far in the season
  • With 14 different winners in this term of the competition, the field for the NASCAR playoffs is tighter and Ryan needs to win a race to lock his place at Daytona
  • Blaney has 10 Top-12 finishes in his last 12 appearances at Pocono Speedway

The situation with Ryan Blaney is very similar to Truex Jr.’s. Blaney even sits higher than Martin Truex Jr. in the Cup Series standings (third) but is also winless for the season. Much like Truex Jr., Blaney needs a win to secure a place in the NASCAR playoffs given that we’ve already had 14 different race winners this term. Ryan has won the 2017 Pocono 400 race and he has finished inside the Top-12 in 10 of his previous 12 appearances there. Looking at the odds, it is very hard to ignore the value of the +1200 odds offered for Blaney to get the much-wanted win on Sunday.
