Can Ford Win Its Second Race of the Playoffs? - Hollywood Casino 400 Odds

Ford remains the only manufacturer with one win five races into the 2019 NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series playoffs.

It’s not as if the Blue Oval’s cars have done a bad job through the Round of 16 and Round of 12.

Kevin Harvick and Brad Keselowski scored three top 5 finishes, tying for first among the playoff drivers.

Keselowski scored the pole and led the race at Richmond for a significant time.

Harvick, meanwhile, came close to winning at Las Vegas and Charlotte, finishing second and third after losing the lead late in the race.

Reigning series champion Joey Logano is arguably the biggest letdown inside the Ford camp.

After scoring a dominant stage 1 win at Vegas to open the playoffs, he hasn’t been able to show the same level of performance.

Logano has the best finish of ninth, and his current form looks like a far-cry from his championship-winning season.

But this picture could very well change this weekend.

Kansas has been one of its best tracks in the Gen 6 era.

The Blue Oval has four wins in 13 races, with two victories in the last three starts at Kansas.

But this isn’t the only relevant stat.

The trio of Kevin Harvick, Joey Logano, and Brad Keselowski has combined for six wins at Kansas during that same span.

While Ford’s cars tend to adapt well to the track, its drivers also have a very good record there.

Toyota won back-to-back races at Las Vegas and Richmond.

Chevrolet followed it up with back-to-back victories at Charlotte and Dover.

Will Ford become the third manufacturer to do it in this year’s playoffs?

How Good Are Ford’s Odds at Kansas This Weekend?

Ford seems to be the best pick this weekend for two different reasons.

First is its solid record since Gen 6’s introduction in 2013.

Ford scored four wins during that period, including two in the last three races.

More importantly, Brad Keselowski won at the track earlier this year, which was the brand new Mustang’s first start at Kansas.

In other words, the new aero package adapted well to the track.

Should Ford repeat its performance from the May race, it will have another great shot at winning.

But this isn’t the only thing that makes Ford the early favorite heading into this weekend’s round.

Its top 3 drivers also have a very good career record at the track.

Kevin Harvick, Joey Logano, and Brad Keselowski have a combined total of seven wins at Kansas.

While two of Harvick’s wins came with Chevrolet, he has managed to score a win with Ford as well.

Keselowski is the most recent winner at Kansas, while Logano won the playoff race on two occasions.

In the May race, Harvick started from the pole and led the most laps, but finished 13th after running into problems.
