Kobalt Tools 400Week 3 of the NASCAR season is going to be a great one on March 10th, when the boys of the senior circuit head to Sin City to take to the track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Join us for our 2013 Kobalt Tools 400 picks on the NASCAR odds.

Last year, the Kobalt Tools 400 came right down to the wire, but there were only a few drivers that really had any chance to come away with a victory. Tony Stewart (NASCAR Betting Odds: 12 to 1 @ SportBet.com) was the man who led almost half the laps in this race though, leading the pack to the start/finish line a whopping 127 times. It was the first win for Stewart here in Las Vegas, but in his 14 starts, he has had nine Top 10 finishes along with an average finishing position of 12.9. Now, Stewart is going to be starting in the ninth spot on Sunday, and he is sure to be a contender once again to claim this title.

Bovada NASCARJimmie Johnson (Kobalt Tools 400 Odds: 6 to 1 @ SportBet.com) ended up as the runner up last year, and after his hot start to the 2013 NASCAR schedule, there is no doubt that JJ is going to be one of the top contenders once again in Sin City. Johnson was the Daytona 500 winner, and he followed that up by being the runner up last week in Phoenix. There is no doubt whatsoever that JJ is going to be a force to be reckoned with, and as long as he is hot, even if he is the favorite to win the race at just 6 to 1 as he is this weekend, he is a man that you have to at least think about betting.

The only man that led more than 35 laps at the 2012 Kobalt Tools 400 was Dale Earnhardt Jr. (Odds To Win Kobalt Tools 400: 12 to 1 @ SportBet.com). Little E though, really hasn’t had all that much in the way of success at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. He has just two Top 5 finishes in his 13 races in Sin City, and he has an average finishing position of 16.3. Earnhardt Jr. only barely finished in the Top 10 in spite of the fact that he led 70 laps in that race. Here’s what we to like about the #88, though. He has a pair of Top 5 finishes on the season, and he really appears to have a good handle on how to run these Gen6 cars, something that a lot of other drivers haven’t quite figured out at this point.

The man that we are going to be taking a shot in the dark on this week is Ricky Stenhouse Jr. (Kobalt Tools 400 Lines: 33 to 1 @ SportBet.com). Many think that Stenhouse Jr. can be this year’s edition of Brad Keselowski, coming out of nowhere to challenge for a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup when push comes to shove. Stenhouse won last year’s Nationwide race here at Las Vegas, and he qualified well in seventh position. Stenhouse Jr. hasn’t finished in the Top 10 in either of the two races this year, but he has finished just outside of it in both outings, proving that with a split second better pit or one more good move, and he could be in Victory Lane. With the confidence of winning last year’s Nationwide Race though, there’s no reason to think that Stenhouse Jr. can’t at least contend in Sin City.
