2024 Toyota Owners 400 Betting Picks

  • Joe Gibbs Racing
  • Chris Buescher (+1100)
  • Josh Berry (+6500)

Joe Gibbs Racing

With the way 2024’s short-track season has started, it’s all but certain that one of the four Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) drivers will win at Richmond.

All four of the team’s cars have the top-four shortest odds to win; Denny Hamlin and Christopher Bell (winners at Bristol and Phoenix, respectively, in 2024) are both at +425, while  Martin Truex Jr. is +600 on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Ty Gibbs bringing up the rear of the top quartet at +850 is the most intriguing to me. The No. 54 has shown speed consistently at all types of tracks this season and Gibbs has a history of strong finishes at Richmond. A ninth-place run last spring in Cup and a win and seventh-place finish in a pair of Xfinity races here show Gibbs as the best potential bang-for-your-buck this week.

Chris Buescher (+1100)

If, for whatever reason, you don’t see a JGR car or Toyota in Victory Lane on Easter evening, last summer’s Richmond winner, Chris Buescher, at +1100 is a solid alternative.

Roush Fenway Keselowski (RFK) Racing has a great short-track program and good results this year. The No. 17 placed runner-up in Phoenix and seventh at Bristol. Buescher also ran third at Richmond in the fall 2022 race.

Josh Berry (+6500)

It’s a stretch to consider other outright bets, but Josh Berry is the most worthy of a possible home-run outright shoutout at +6500. The Cup Series rookie is always more of a threat on short tracks. Plus, both Ford and Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) have had speed here recently, with Kevin Harvick’s (in the same No. 4 car) last Cup win coming here in 2022.

Berry was second in last year’s spring race while filling in for Chase Elliott, though it could be due for an asterisk mark, as it was mainly due to a good unconventional pit strategy. Still, the Tennessee native finished seventh and third in the Xfinity Series here the last two seasons while with JR Motorsports (JRM).
