NASCAR heads to Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday for the GEICO 500.

Here is a look at some key head-to-head betting matchups.

Brad Keselowski (-110) vs. Joey Logano (-110)

Although they offer the same odds, Logano, last year's GEICO 500 winner, might have the advantage. In his last four trips to Talladega, he's finished in the top five on three occasions.

Kevin Harvick (-110) vs. Clint Bowyer (-110)

Bowyer finished third at Richmond on April 13, while Harvick finished fourth. They've had similar finishes at Talladega in the past, but at last year's GEICO 500, Harvick finished fourth, while Bowyer finished 31st.

Denny Hamlin (-120) vs. Kyle Busch (+110)

Hamlin has two top 10 finishes and a top 5 in the last four races at Talladega. Hamlin's recent form is decent as well, with a fifth at Richmond, a fifth at Bristol, and a win at Texas in the last three Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races

Kyle Busch (-120) vs Martin Truex Jr. (+100)

Busch has had the better recent success at Talladega, including a top five finish and 53 laps led in the last four, while Truex's average finish in the last four trips is 26.75.
