Top Sleepers for the 2021 NASCAR Ally 400
Take a pew, as I’ve got some value bets, long shots, and top sleepers for Sunday’s NASCAR Ally 400 at Nashville Superspeedway.
Although Kyle Larson and Chase Elliott have been in fine form for Hendrick Motorsports as of late, there is no getting away from the fact that this year’s Cup Series has been far from predictable for the most part.
Ever the optimist, I’m confident that the following 2021 Ally 400 sleeper picks are worth some pocket change. If you’re looking for longshot odds for NASCAR in Tennessee, keep reading, and I’ll tell you what you need to know.
Let’s start with a driver from the Joe Gibbs Racing stable.
Christopher Bell +4000
There is solid value in Bell’s odds to win the Ally 400 this Sunday.
Although the smarter bet would be on the 26-year-old to crack the top-10, I recommend pushing your faith in the Oklahoman that little bit further and backing him to finish in the top-5.
Bell’s 2021 form has been pretty good. He won the O’Reilly Autoparts 253 at the DRC, finished 4th in the Toyota Owners 400 in Richmond, and has five top-9s under his belt in just 16 races.
2021 Ally 400 sleepers over the +2000 mark don’t get much better than this.
Chris Buescher +12500
Buescher has been teetering on something special as of late, with three top-9s from his last six starts.
The 2015 Xfinity champion gets behind the wheel of the 17 Ford Mustang for Roush Fenway Racing looking for just the second win of his career, and will be a threat.
Regarding NASCAR longshots for the Ally 400, I’m not overly keen on back Buescher to win the race. However, odds of +325 for a top-10 finish with the top US betting sites sound much more appealing.
This will be a testing race for all drivers, given that it’s the first of its kind in the Cup Series. As we have seen so far this season, anyone can get over the line first. But while it’s not completely unrealistic to see the man from Prosper, erm, prosper, I’d err on the side of caution and take him for a place in the top-10.
Let’s just hope he doesn’t suffer another spin like this one.
Aric Almirola +12500
The last of my top sleeper picks for the 2021 Ally 400 is the best of them all.
I’m still trying to figure out why Almirola’s odds to win in Tennessee are so juicy. I mean, he won the All-Star Open last weekend and clinched 8th in the All-Star Race. At odds of +12500, he super high value to pull off a shock, even if he has zero points wins this season.
Online betting sites for NASCAR make Almirola +3500 for a top-3 finish and +375 to make the top-10. As a longshot for the Ally 400 in 2021, he is big value as a winner. For a top-3, he’s worth a gamble. As for a top-10 finish? I’d say he’s the best bet for the NASCAR this weekend. Period.
Almirola has an excellent record on superspeedways, of course. Still, I’d look to the Stewart-Haas Racing star’s excellent performances on intermediates as another reason to make him your best sleeper for the 2021 Ally 400 this Sunday.
