Johnson is going off as a 30-1 long shot in the latest 2020 Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 odds from William Hill, well behind top 2020 NASCAR at New Hampshire contenders like Kevin Harvick (14-5), Denny Hamlin (11-2) and Kyle Busch (11-2).

Top 2020 Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 predictions

For the 2020 Foxwoods Resort Casino 301, the model is high on Chase Elliott, even though he's a massive 12-1 long shot in the latest NASCAR at New Hampshire odds. He's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. Elliott only has one win in a points race this season but ranks fifth in the standings with 630 points thanks to seven top-five performances. 

Elliott had an extremely strong run at New Hampshire in 2018, finishing fifth in a race he led 23 laps. Since finishing a disappointing 34th in his first race at New Hampshire in 2016, he's averaged just outside a top-10 finish at this one-mile course. With double-digit odds and a track record of being near the top of the leaderboard, Elliott is a strong choice for your 2020 NASCAR at New Hampshire bets on Sunday, according to the model. 

And a massive shocker: Kevin Harvick, the top Vegas favorite at 14-5, stumbles and doesn't make it to victory lane. There are far better values in this loaded field. Harvick has four wins in Loudon and has sprinted out to a 97-point lead in the 2020 NASCAR standings.

While he's riding a streak of six consecutive top-five finishes, he hasn't finished better than fourth in the last three races despite starting on the pole in Kansas last week. He's had 20 career top-10 finishes in 36 starts at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, but he's also finished outside the top 20 on 10 occasions.

How to make 2020 Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 picks

The model is also targeting four other drivers with 2020 NASCAR at New Hampshire odds of 12-1 or longer to make a serious run at the checkered flag. Anyone who backs these drivers could hit it big. You can only see them here.
