NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship Betting Odds Formed For 2013

Filed under: NASCAR Betting Odds |

NASCAR Sprint CupThe start of the 2013 NASCAR season is just over a month away, but oddsmakers have already begun to filed wagers on the betting lines for the 2013 Sprint Cup Championship. The season-long race for the cup garners plenty of attention from oddsmakers, as does each race throughout the course of the season.

The 2013 Daytona 500 will kick off the Sprint Cup season, which will take place on Sunday, February 24.

Sprint Cup Championship Futures wagers are currently up, and will remain up during the entire season, where oddsmakers will revise them accordingly based on results of the races as they happen.

So which driver is at the top of the 2013 Sprint Cup Futures Odds heading into the season?

Well, it’s a name everyone should be familiar with, and has been synonymous with championships over the last decade or so.

In fact, it’s hard to remember the last time we did this pre-NASCAR season championship betting line without Jimmie Johnson at the top of the list. Once again, Johnson is above all the other drivers coming into this season.

Bovada Sportsbook has tabbed about 20 drivers with odds to win, with Johnson set at 17/4 to win his first Sprint Cup title since 2010, which was the tail end of a five-year streak where he flat out dominated the sport.

The defending 2012 Sprint Cup series champion Brad Keselowski is the driver nearest Johnson on NASCAR betting odds. Keselowski’s title was the first of his career, and he will look to build off of that with a second. Oddsmakers have tabbed him with odds at 15/2 to repeat that championship.

Next on the list are a pair of very popular drivers, in Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch. Both have been set with odds at 17/2 to win the Sprint Cup championship.

Rounding out the top-five favorites is Kasey Kahne, who had a great 2012 and will try to carry that momentum over into 2013. Kahne is ahead of notable names like Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, and Carl Edwards on the list of favorites.
