Complete List of Odds To Win The Sprint Cup Can Be Found Below

Sprint Cup OddsWe are a few months into the 2013 NASCAR schedule, and here at Bankroll Sports, we’re taking yet another look at some of the top drivers in the world and where they are expected to finish this year in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Don’t miss the odds to win the NASCAR Championship here at Bankroll Sports!

Very little has changed at the top of the Sprint Cup circuit over the course of the last few months. In the end, this is still the Chase for the Championship that belongs to Jimmie Johnson (Odds to Win the Sprint Cup: 1.75 to 1 at SportBet Sportsbook), and the rest of the field is merely chasing. It has been a matter of total domination this year for the No. 48 Chevy, and it almost seems like Johnson is finally P.O.’d enough to just blow out the rest of the pack after not winning the championship for two straight years. Johnson has three wins, seven Top 5 finishes, and 11 Top 10 finishes this season in just 17 races, and it feels like there isn’t a race in which he isn’t at least in the thick of the fight in the closing laps. Not only has Johnson found a way to lead the Sprint Cup both in Top 5s and Top 10s, but he has a whopping 38-point cushion at this point, and he has earned nearly $2M more than the next driver in line. It’s not a lock that JJ will win the Chase, but it’s definitely looking like this is the year that the Lowes Chevy is the car that will be back on top.

NASCAR BookmakerThe next logical choice still seems to be Carl Edwards (Sprint Cup Championship Odds: 15 to 1 at SportBet Sportsbook) in spite of the fact that he is only the sixth favorite on the board. Edwards remains consistent as he was all season long two years ago when he only just barely missed winning the championship by literally a nose to Tony Stewart. Edwards has been in the Top 10 nine times this year, and he is one of just a handful of drivers who has yet to log a DNF on the campaign. Some of that is luck for sure, but the No. 99 has a tendency of staying out of people’s way and finding a way to be there at the very end. Edwards is sitting in second place in the NASCAR standings at the moment, and we don’t see how he could struggle so badly to the point that he wouldn’t even be a factor when push came to shove down the stretch of the season.

We think there’s a heck of a lot of value in some of the drivers that are struggling some out of the gates this year. That means that Brad Keselowski (Odds to Win NASCAR Championship: 20 to 1 at SportBet Sportsbook) certainly isn’t one to count out. The Jet Ski won the title last year, and he ran well at the end of the 2011 season as well, but this year has been a frustrating one. Keselowski is only in 13th place in the standings, and he has yet to win a race on the season. With only five Top 5 finishes on the campaign, there is little to justify Keselowski ultimately being a factor in this year’s Chase for the Championship, and if the Chase started today, he wouldn’t even be in the thick of the fight. That said, we know that things have to improve for Keselowski at some point, and just as we saw two years ago when he stormed down the stretch of the season to get into the Chase, we do think that he’ll get in and be able to make some noise when he gets there as well.

That’s why we still like the idea of backing Tony Stewart (NASCAR Championship Odds: 25 to 1 at SportBet Sportsbook) still as well. “Smoke” has a great history of running at the crucial tracks on the Sprint Cup circuit that are a part of the playoffs, but getting into the field is going to be tough. Right now, Stewart would be a Wild Card entrant with a win on the season, but he would love to close the gap and get into the Top 10 all by himself without having to rely upon those wins to get him into the Chase. That said, seemingly just one more win at some point this year would be good enough to get the owner/driver of the No. 14 Chevrolet into the Chase for the Sprint Cup, and if that happens, we aren’t going to count him out. Remember that two years ago, Stewart won each of the first two races of the Chase, and we know that he has it in him to do it once again if the chips fall in the right places around him.
