NASCAR Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 odds and value picks
New Hampshire Motor Speedway is the site for Sunday’s Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 (3:00 p.m. ET, NBCSN). The NASCAR Cup Series drivers will traverse 300 laps at “The Magic Mile,” with Kyle Larson holding tepid favoritism for the race at +550.
While Larson has put together the most impressive résumé of any driver this season (four wins, 1,441 laps led, leading each category), he has gone just a bit cold, failing to crack the Top 10 in two straight races.
We’ll try to beat the favorite with our three value selections for the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301.

Bettors don’t have to go far down the starting lineup to find a value play this Sunday – pole-sitter Kyle Busch is an intriguing proposition at +600 for the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301.
Busch – currently third in the point standings this year – has finished third or better in four straight races heading into this start, including his victory in the second leg of the Pocono doubleheader. He led 91 laps in defeat at Atlanta last week.
“Rowdy” won at New Hampshire as recently as 2017, and is the runaway leader among active drivers in laps led at “The Magic Mile” with 1,128.
Sitting as the co-second choice with Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Busch, Denny Hamlin is hard to leave out of the win discussion at New Hampshire.
Hamlin has three career victories at “The Magic Mile,” and finished second in each of his last two trips to the Loudon, NH oval. The No. 11 Toyota driver puts himself in the hunt practically every week, as he leads all full-time drivers in average finishing position in 2021 (8.6).
He’ll roll off the grid in sixth place on Sunday afternoon.
Chase Elliott has two wins on the year, but the defending NASCAR Cup Series champion would love to pick up a non-road course victory soon. He could grab the checkered flag in the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 at a decent price.
The No. 9 Chevrolet driver has finished no worse than seventh in nine of his last 12 starts in points-paying races, leading 90 laps in the process. Two of his last three trips to New Hampshire resulted in Top 10s.
Elliott will begin his day in third place.
