Pennsylvania 400 at Pocono Raceway Preview and Betting Odds

Filed under: NASCAR Betting Odds |


The NASCAR Sprint Cup regular season is drawing closer to the end as there are just 5 races left before the 2012 Chase for the Sprint Cup begins.  The first of these five is slated for this Sunday at Pocono Raceway for the Pennsylvania 400.

Juan Pablo Montoya is one of the drivers who likely will not find himself vying for the Cup come Chase time.  Pablo has had a somewhat disappointing year with no top-five finishes, only two top tens and sits 21st in the points standings.

But he has had some success at Pocono with a runner-up finish back in 2009 and finished in the top ten four times in 11 races. Building on this is what he hopes to accomplish on Sunday afternoon as he won the pole in Saturday’s qualifying.

Qualifying second was Denny Hamlin who sits at 5th in the standings. He has put himself in good position to possibly make a move toward that top spot which is held by Dale Earnhardt Jr..  Following him to round out the top five are Paul Menard, Kasey Kahne and Marcos Ambrose.  Earnhardt Jr qualified 8th.

Bovada Sportsbook has fielded their Pennsylvania 400 Betting Odds and have tagged Denny Hamlin, a two-time winner in Sprint Cup races this season, as the betting favorite with odds set at 11/2.  This means for every $1.00 wagered on Hamlin, the payout is $5.50.

Jimmie Johnson, who already has four wins this year including last weekend’s Brickyard 400, enters the race with 6/1 odds.  Kyle Busch goes in with 8/1 while Earnhardt Jr is at 9/1.  Kahne rounds out the top five betting favorites at 11/1 odds.

As for the pole winner Montoya, he has his odds set at 40/1.  A big reward awaits if wagered on him and he wins.  For every $1.00 wagered, the payout is $40.00.

The Pennsylvania 400 can be seen live on ESPN at 1:00 pm ET.
