So yes, JGR is currently the hottest thing going in NASCAR right now, but there may be an opportunity with the unique track that has three differing banked turns to find a few drivers elsewhere at nice prices to win. It's a dilemma with betting against JGR because you know they have the low downforce package figured out best and you know they'll be fast again Sunday, but how about a couple other candidates like the Chevy banner with Hendrick or Stewart Haas Racing or a Team Penske Ford?

If we look back at the past four Pocono race covering the past two seasons, you'll see that Dale Earnhardt Jr. has a 4.25 average finish with two wins. After that in the last four races, it's Kyle Larson (9th-place average), Greg Biffle (9.5), Jamie McMurray (9.75), and Brad Keselowski (11th). The now retired Jeff Gordon had a 7.75 average and rookie Chase Elliott gets that sweet ride. That's the top-six performers and none of them are driving Toyotas.
