Denny Hamlin has already won three NASCAR Cup Series races this season and he'll be gunning for his fourth this weekend at the 2024 AdventHealth 400. Sunday's race will be at Kansas Speedway, where Hamlin has finished inside the top five in each of his last five races, including a victory in 2023. He has racked up four career wins at Kansas and he's among the favorites to claim the checkered flag again on Sunday. The 2024 AdventHealth 400 is set to begin at 3 p.m. ET. 

According to the latest 2024 AdventHealth 400, Hamlin is listed at 9-2, just behind Kyle Larson (4-1). Other top contenders on the NASCAR at Kansas odds board include Tyler Reddick (6-1), Martin Truex Jr. (15-2) and William Byron (8-1). Should your 2024 AdventHealth 400 picks include backing one of the favorites, or should you target a longshot like Joey Logano (40-1), who's racked up three wins at Kansas Speedway in his career? Before making any 2024 NASCAR at Kansas predictions, be sure to see the latest 2024 AdventHealth 400 picks from SportsLine's proven projection model.

Developed by daily Fantasy pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking into account factors such as track history and recent results.

McClure's model was red-hot in 2023, nailing Martin Truex Jr.'s Clash win (20-1) as well as his win in New Hampshire (11-2), Joey Logano's Duel win (8-1), Kyle Busch's Fontana victory (10-1), Denny Hamlin's triumph in Kansas (6-1) and Kyle Larson's wins at Martinsville (6-1) and the NASCAR All-Star Race (13-2). The model correctly predicted winners in two of the playoff races as well, with Ryan Blaney scoring a 12-1 payout at Talladega and Larson winning at 9-2 in Las Vegas. 

Then it called its first winner of the 2024 season with Larson in Las Vegas for a 21-5 payout and predicted Hamlin's wins in Bristol at 5-1 and Richmond at 17-4. It also impressively nailed five of Larson's wins during his historic season in 2021. All told, the model has nailed a whopping 18 winners since 2021, including nine last year and three in the first seven races this season. Anyone who followed its lead on those NASCAR picks saw huge returns.

Now, the model simulated the 2024 AdventHealth 400 10,000 times. Head to SportsLine to see the complete projected NASCAR at Kansas leaderboard.

Top 2024 AdventHealth 400 predictions

For the 2024 AdventHealth 400, the model is high on Ryan Blaney, even though he's a 20-1 longshot in the latest 2024 NASCAR at Kansas odds. Blaney has had success at Kansas Speedway throughout his career, securing seven top-10 finishes in 18 career starts. 

Blaney has also fared well at speedways this season, finishing second in Atlanta and third in Las Vegas earlier this year. Blaney is the defending NASCAR Cup Series champion and he'll be eager to claim his first checkered flag of the season on Sunday afternoon. Blaney's recent form at speedways, plus his long odds, make him a valuable longshot to target at the 2024 AdventHealth 400.

Another massive shocker: Martin Truex Jr., who is second in the standings and listed as one of the top Vegas favorites, stumbles and fails to crack the top five. There are far better values in the 2024 Kansas NASCAR starting lineup.

Truex missed the NASCAR playoffs entirely in 2022 after his first winless season since 2014, but he followed that up with three wins in 2023. However, he still finished a disappointing 11th in the standings and even though he's been a better points racer early in 2024, he's still winless through 11 races. He finished 36th after a crash in his most recent start at Kansas and he's been outside the top 10 in three of his last four starts entering the weekend. See which other drivers to avoid and the rest of the projected NASCAR leaderboard at SportsLine.
