Kobalt 400 NASCAR Preview for 3/6

Kobalt 400 NASCAR Preview for 3/6

NASCAR Preview 3/6

NASCAR fans are cherishing this time of year as the motor sports are in high gear.  Building on the momentum of the Daytona 500, HRWager’s NASCAR preview goes to Las Vegas for the Kobalt 400.  Could an unusual weather pattern be a pivotal factor for Sunday?  Who are the favorites for your futures consideration?  Finally, which racer have the sharps already embraced for this one?  Let us get to it and bring you boon to our bankroll for this Sunday, March 6th.

 

NASCAR Preview : Rain in Vegas?

Sin City out in the desert is the venue for this race.  Not exactly a moisture laden environment so when the forecast has rain in it, people take notice.  A spring like storm slams into the California coast and has such strength that it makes its path all the way to Vegas,  Latest projection is for overnight storms on Saturday into the wee hours of Sunday.  There is very little chance that the race will be canceled but the chance of a delay or two is something to factor into this.  Some of the drivers responded better to impromptu delays than others.

Value Seen In Jimmie Johnson

While not yet the odds on favorite, the future for Jimmie Johnson has dropped to the +600 level. Kyle Busch is your pole position and his price has seen some action dipping him to +700 to win.  However,  the Busch brothers grew up in the area but oddly between them only have one victory at the Las Vegas Speedway.   Kevin Harvick  +450 is the favorite and for good reason.  His win here last year catapulted him into dominating form for months on the circuit.  One can not go wrong in considering him for your futures wagering this weekend.

Finally, one might want to take a gander at Matt Kenseth +900.  He got blown by at Daytona.  Matt comes back in Atlanta to perform well only to have a fueling gaffe by his crew.  His form has been fine.  Does this snakebit driver come through this weekend at the Kobalt 400?  Stay tuned as FOX has your TV coverage for this one starting at 3:30PM race time. Good fortune on your futures and we will see you tomorrow here at the HRW.

UFC 196 Free Picks : Champs Take to the Ring

UFC 196 Free Picks : Champs Take to the Ring

HRWager’s UFC 196 Free Picks are here as the champs prepare to take to the ring tonight.  Holly Holm wants to flex her muscles first by going after Miesha Tate before any Rousey rematch happens.  On the men’s side, Conor McGregor sure knows how to hype up any fight.  Nick Diaz bravely stepped in when Dos Santos broke his foot a few weeks back.  It did not stop neither the Irishman’s banter nor the line dropping from the initial -320 opening.  Find out the pulse of these fights as the PPV is finally here tonight on 3/5.

UFC 196 Free Picks : Mrs. Buster Douglas?

Rousey’s lose against Holly Holm  sparked comparisons with Tyson losing to Buster Douglas decades ago.  While it did not go to that level of upset, Holm can learn from Douglas.  Buster reveled in his upset and lost his very next fight.  The key for the Holm fight’s of the future is getting her on the ground.  100 percent defense in the prevention of take downs translates that no one has done this so far.  No one in the company will beat Holly Holm just in the vertical game.  This facet is too strong for anyone on the current roster to contend with.  So you have to project whether someone who could not formulate against the Rousey armbar can now get Holm on the ground.  Some as of yesterday bit on this apple as the opener of -320 on Holm has gone down to -288.  Tate has the slight wagering momentum coming into this one.

No Lack of Motivation

UFC 196 Free Picks

No belt will be on the line here as Conor is going up from 145 to the 170 range in this one.  He insists that this is his normal walking around weight in every day life.  He gets Nick Diaz as an opponent instead of Dos Anjos.  McGregor might be too focused in the verbal department as Diaz represents an oddity for him.  Nick has height and length against him.  Mr. Diaz just likes to fight.  Forget about being super ripped or being a role model, Nick just likes to brawl.  The factors in this one are Nick’s pudginess and Conor’s precision power.  Nick can absorb random blows but Conor has been on point in the placement of the punches.  Diaz’s main advantage will be on the ground but he must get him there fast.  Lack of conditioning will be the factor that really makes this fight not even close.

A torrent of money has come in on a chalk heavy moneyline.  Pounding this by the sharps and early money is all you need to know.  -320 on Conor is near the -500 mark now.  Few give Diaz a chance nor should you.  Instead of wagering a straight bet on McGregor, add him to your other selections for the weekend and make parlays.  Do this counters some of the vigs for a line that still has value in it.  Good fortune this evening and we will see you later today here at HRWager.
