The NASCAR Cup Series heads to Talladega, Alabama, on Sunday for the Geico 500.

Denny Hamlin raced to his third victory of the season and 40th overall with his win last Sunday at Homestead, his record-tying third NASCAR Cup Series victory at the track. Who will take the checkered flag in Sunday’s race at (3 p.m. ET) at Talladega Superspeedway? NASCAR senior writer Ryan McGee, Fantasy’s Mike Clay, Stats & Info’s Matthew Willis and editor Scott Symmes offer their best bets for the race.

Note: Odds from Caesars Sportsbook as of Thursday, unless otherwise noted.
