2024 Iowa Corn 350 expert picks, best bets, Iowa odds, field: NASCAR expert with 8 winners makes picks (2024)

Kyle Busch has not competed in many races at Iowa Speedway in his career, but he hasn't disappointed in the few starts he's made. The two-time NASCAR Cup Series champion won his only K&N Pro Series East race at the track in 2009, was runner-up in his first Xfinity Series race there, and captured the checkered flag in his second Xfinity appearance at Iowa the following year. Busch will try to produce another impressive performance when the Cup Series makes its debut at Iowa Speedway with the 2024 Iowa Corn 350 on Sunday.

Busch is a 25-1 longshot in the 2024 Iowa Corn 350 odds, while Christopher Bell is the 4-1 favorite. Kyle Larson is 11-2, Denny Hamlin is 7-1 and reigning Cup Series champion Ryan Blaney is 15-2. Martin Truex Jr. and Ty Gibbs round out the top 2024 NASCAR at Iowa contenders at 10-1. Sunday's race is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. ET. Before making any 2024 Iowa Corn 350 picks or NASCAR predictions, you need to see what NASCAR insider Steven Taranto has to say.

Taranto, who moonlights as a sim racer and has 20 career wins in iRacing, is the lead NASCAR writer for CBSSports.com, and he chronicles stock car racing with the same thoroughness and passion that he's had since becoming a full-time race fan in 2001. He has an annual NASCAR medial credential and also publishes a popular weekly NASCAR predictions column, famously calling Ross Chastain and Daniel Suarez's breakthrough wins in 2022.

Taranto is off to a red-hot start for SportsLine in 2024, nailing eight winners in his best bets already, including 16-1 longshot Byron at the Daytona 500 and 14-1 longshot Chase Elliott at Texas. Anyone following his NASCAR picks has seen huge returns.

Now, Taranto has analyzed the starting lineup and odds for Sunday's Iowa Corn 350. He's sharing his best bets at SportsLine.

2024 Iowa Corn 350 expert picks

For the 2024 Iowa Corn 350, Taranto is high on Brad Keselowski, even though he's a longshot at 12-1. The 2012 Cup Series champion got off to a rough start this season, crashing out of the first two races before finishing 13th at Las Vegas in early March. Keselowski began to turn things around after that, as he was fourth at Phoenix and third at Bristol in his next two outings.

The 40-year-old native of Michigan has recorded five more top-five finishes - and six top-10s - since then, including his first victory in 111 starts on May 12 at Darlington. The win highlighted a seven-start stretch during which Keselowski also posted three runner-up finishes and a third-place before it ended last weekend at Sonoma, where he was 13th. He had an exorbitant amount of success at Iowa Speedway while driving in the Xfinity Series, registering three wins, six top-fives and seven top-10s in seven starts.

Another surprise: Taranto is fading Denny Hamlin, even though he's one of the favorites. The 43-year-old Floridian made an early exit last Sunday at Sonoma after he experienced engine trouble after only two laps. The misfortune ended Hamlin's streak of five consecutive top-five finishes that began with his third victory of the season on April 28 at Dover.

Hamlin has performed exceptionally well on short tracks this year. His first two wins came at Bristol and Richmond, and he has finished in the top three in five of the Cup Series' last six short-track races. But the three-time Daytona 500 winner is one of the few drivers that hasn't competed at Iowa Speedway, which has Taranto concerned about his chances for the checkered flag this weekend.See what other NASCAR picks he likes at SportsLine.
