2014 Auto Club 400 Betting Preview + Race Info

Filed under: NASCAR Betting Odds |

Auto Club 400The teams and drivers in NASCAR will be out in Fontana, California this week for the 2014 Auto Club 400 from Auto Club Speedway. The Sprint Cup Series comes off of a great week at Bristol where Carl Edwards took the checkered flag.

Auto Club Speedway has a reputation of weeding out inferior drivers and letting the best of the best rise to the top. A quick glance at past champions of the event will make that evident. The last four winners have been Kyle Busch, Tony Stewart, Kevin Harvick, and Jimmie Johnson.

Speaking of Johnson, Bovada Sportsbook thinks very highly of him this week. 2014 Auto Club 400 betting lines available there have installed Johnson as the favorite, going off at a 5 to 1 payout. That is not far in front of drivers behind him though. Busch (another winner here) is right there at 11/2, which is a near identical payout to Johnson.

There are a couple more drivers with single-digit odds before they continue to go up from there. Matt Kenseth at 7/1 and Harvick at 9/1 provide some solid profit margins or top-five favorites.

As the favorite, Johnson obviously has a history of success at Auto Club Speedway (two wins). But it was Busch who got it done last year in the final lap after finishing runner up in 2012. Busch has been right around the checkered flag each of the last three year, with a victory, a runner up, and a third place.

Johnson and Busch are looking for their first wins in 2014. Though there have only been a handful of races so far, these two have high expectations of putting together winning performances every time they strap up inside the car.

For those that are interested in going outside of the top-five favorites this week, last week’s winner in Edwards could be a good bet. He certainly comes in hot with the win at Bristol, and at 12/1 is receiving a good payout.

Both Tony Stewart and Jeff Gordon are set with payouts at 16/1. Gordon has won this race more than any other driver with three wins. His last came in 2004 though. Stewart, as mentioned up above, won in 2012.

The complete set of betting lines can be found below, as LatestBettingOdds.com wants to provide readers with the most up-to-date odds out. Bovada will have the lines up until the start of the race, which gets underway on Sunday, March 23 at 3:00 pm ET.
