After Brad Keselowski finished ahead of Chase Elliot (2nd) and Kyle Busch (3rd) to take home the checkered flag in last week's STP 500, fans are already looking ahead to the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 at the Texas Motor Speedway this Sunday. 

If you're looking to place a wager on this race, let's take a look at which drivers the experts have their eyes on first.

Sports Chat Place

The Sports Chat Place team lists a few drivers they like, but at the top of the list is Kyle Busch, who has completely dominated NASCAR this season. Prior to last Sunday's third-place finish at the STP 500, Busch was going for his third straight first-place finish. He has also finished no worse than sixth place in his last eight races.


The staff from WSN consider Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano legitimate contenders, but they've also Kyle Busch as their favorite to win it all. They largely point to Busch's dominating win in the 2018 installment of this race.

Top Bet

The team at Top Bet is making it a clean sweep for Kyle Busch, mainly because of his three straight podium finishes and win at this track last season.

Overall, we have all three experts going with the favorite, Kyle Busch, to repeat as this year's winner of the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500.
