Coke Zero Sugar 400 Prediction:
Pick: Ryan Blaney
15 racers have secured their places in the NASCAR playoffs with a victory earlier this season. Ryan Blaney can simply join the club with a win on Saturday night. Blaney has been impressively consistent this season and is too good on the superspeedways.
However, there are six other drivers featured as 12-1 co-favorites in the odds, including defending NASCAR champion Kyle Larson. They will be Blaney’s targeted contenders to overtake in the race to defend his glory.
