Kyle Busch Looks For 5th-Straight Win At Toyota Owners 400, Betting Odds Favor Him Big

Filed under: NASCAR Betting Odds |

Toyota Owners 400Matt Kenseth outlasted Kasey Kahne last week in Kansas to capture his first victory on the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup circuit, but it didn’t come without some controversy in the days after. Kenseth’s winning engine did not pass a secondary test conducted by NASCAR, prompting some to wonder what action would be taken.

The governing body of the sport lowered the gauntlet on Kenseth, docking the winner 50 points in the Sprint Cup Standings, suspended the driver’s crew chief for six races, and fined him $200,000.

Lee White, who is the President of Toyota Racing Development, said that they take the complete blame for the violation that took place by Kenseth.

The loss of points moves Kenseth from 8th in the standings to 14th.

Kenseth will try to move on from the disappointment now as the series gets ready for Richmond.

Over the course of the last four years, there has been one driver synonymous with victory at Richmond. That would be Kyle Busch. Busch will be working on a five-peat at the Toyota Owners 400 this weekend, as he has won the event every year since 2009.

Obviously you can probably guess that Busch is the favorite to win on Toyota Owners 400 betting odds available at Bovada Sportsbook. And he is the heavy favorite as compared to how most weekly racing odds stack up on the Sprint Cup circuit.

At 4 to 1, Busch is nearly twice the favorite as the next-closest driver on the list, which is very unusual. But when a driver has dominated here like Busch has in recent memory, oddsmakers had to change the game up a bit.

Jimmie Johnson comes in second on the list of favorites at 15 to 2. So you can see the difference between Busch and Johnson alone as the top-two favorites for the week.

Next we have Kenseth at 8 to 1. It will be interesting to see how he responds after the loss of points plus the fine. He could come back as determined as ever, or it could affect him negatively. Oddsmakers do not see the results from last week negatively affecting the driver though, as the third-overall favorite to win.

Carl Edwards and Clint Bowyer have been set with equal 9 to 1 betting odds to win this week. Bowyer was the last driver not named Kyle busch to win this race, getting the victory in 2008.

Coverage of the Toyota Owners 400 can be seen live on FOX on Saturday night under the lights, beginning at 7:30pm ET. LatestBettingOdds.com has the full field odds to win listed below.
