Through the Gears: Talladega Best Bets

It’s Talladega week! That means there is a ton of value on the board for some NASCAR betting longshots for the NASCAR Cup Series.

Ford is still winless thus far this season heading into the 10th race of the year. But the manufacturer has won 11 of the last 17 races at this track. Could Todd Gilliland at 45-1 capture his first career victory? Or will it be superspeedway ace Ryan Blaney at 10-1 to put Ford back in victory lane?

On this episode of Through the Gears, Tino Pattigno breaks down when the best time is to place your bets ahead of this weekend’s race. A major stat to note is that the winner has started inside of the top 19 in 27 of the last 28 races at the track, which does impact some of our longshot picks.
