2014 Food City 500 Betting Preview; Kyle Bush Favored To Take Checkered Flag

Filed under: NASCAR Betting Odds |

2014 Food City 500The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series is moving from the bright lights of Las Vegas to the other side of the country for the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee. Brad Keselowski captured a tight race in Vegas on Sunday, earning his first victory of the season.

Keselowski will be in the field this week and is actually one of the top favorites to win the 2014 Food City 500. He has won this race before, grabbing the checkered flag back in 2012.

It’s Kasey Kahne who is the defending Food City 500 champion. Like Keselowski, Kahne will be driving this week, but is further down the list of top candidates perceived by Bovada Sportsbook.

It’s been an exciting season so far in NASCAR, that got started with a bang when Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the Daytona 500. Kevin Harvick won the next week in Phoenix, followed by Keselowski on Sunday.

The Food City 500 will be the first of two Sprint Cup races held at Bristol for the 2014 season, with the other the Irwin Tools Night Race. Bristol is widely considered one of the best tracks on the circuit, and a place that drivers look forward to driving on each year.

Looking at the betting lines this week, it’s clear that oddsmakers are set on a decisive favorite. While Kyle Busch might be on top at 11/2, there are a trio of drivers directly behind at 7/1. They include Keselowski, Jimmie Johnson, and Matt Kenseth. Keselowski obviously comes in as the hot driver with his victory last week. If he can get another early victory that could really establish early momentum in the Chase for the Cup.

You can’t sleep on Earnhardt either though. The Daytona 500 winner is set at 9/1 to win this week, which is just outside the top-five favorites.

The three winners on the 2014 circuit are all in the top-six of the betting lines for the 2014 Food City 500.

Coverage of the Food City 500 will begin at 1 pm ET on Sunday, March 16th with coverage on Fox.
