One of the most consistent drivers on the Sprint Cup circuit is going to be involved for sure on the odds to win the Coca-Cola 600. Jimmie Johnson (Current Coca-Cola 600 Odds: 3.75 to 1 at SportBet Sportsbook) is the favorite to win the Coca-Cola 600, and for great reason. He is one of the top drivers here at Charlotte Motor Speedway, and he has had a great track record this year for consistency. The five-time champ has eight Top 10 finishes under his belt thus far on the season in 11 races, and that’s really saying something considering the fact that he has had a pair of DNFs as well. The moral of the story? If JJ can stay out of trouble, he is going to be a force to be reckoned with in this 600-mile marathon of a race.

It might be worth taking a bit of a flyer on the man that won the Nationwide race here at Charlotte yesterday, Brad Keselowski (Coca-Cola 600 Lines: 22 to 1 at SportBet Sportsbook). The Jet Ski already has two wins on the campaign, and he has four victories dating back approximately a full year’s worth of races, and there just aren’t all that many drivers in the world that can boast that. Keselowski knows that he has a pit crew that is going to be able to gauge just how long he can go on fuel, as that’s what won the Nationwide race on Saturday for him. With that sort of booming confidence and the fact that he is such an up and comer, we wouldn’t be all that shocked if Keselowski was able to make some noise and challenge for the 2012 Coca-Cola 600 championship.

List Of Past Coca-Cola 600 Champions (Since 2000)

2008 Coca-Cola 600 Champion: Kasey Kahne (Dodge)
2007 Coca-Cola 600 Champion: Casey Mears (Chevrolet)

2000 Coca-Cola 600 Champion: Matt Kenseth (Ford)

He hasn’t found the winner’s circle quite yet this year, but that doesn’t mean that we should ignore last year’s winner of the Coca-Cola 600, Kevin Harvick (Odds to Win the Coca-Cola 600: 12 to 1 at SportBet Sportsbook). Harvick is one of these drivers that is often forgotten about when it comes to races like this one. He hasn’t won a race this year, and he has just two Top 5 finishes on the year. However, when you look back at some of the recent work that Harvick has put in, you see a sixth place finish here at the NASCAR All-Star Race, and a lot of finishes on the lead lap and in contention as well. Harvick could be a creepy play at Charlotte this weekend, knowing that he has a great history on this track and in this race.

Lastly, we are going to be taking aim at Kyle Busch (Current Coca-Cola 600 Odds: 8.50 to 1 at SportBet Sportsbook). This Toyota driver has the best chance to get the job done in the field in his class, and there aren’t many drivers that are hotter right now than he is. Busch finished fourth in last week’s NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race, and that marked his fourth straight race finishing in fourth position or better. He has six straight Top 12 finishes, and he has just a slew of confidence coming onto a track in which he has done quite well over the years. Don’t be all that shocked if the No. 18 figures out how to get around a large portion of the pack on Sunday, and after the 4+ hours of racing, Busch might ultimately have the car to beat.
