Filed under: NASCAR Betting Odds |

Chase For The CupThe Chase For The Cup is set. There are 16 drivers contending for the season-long Sprint Cup Championship.

It’s been a season unlike many we’ve seen in the past, with plenty of story lines on and off the track. The top drivers in 2014 have earned their way into the top-16, but it’s clear that several drivers have separated themselves when it comes to the betting odds to win the 2014 Sprint Cup.

At the top of the list of favorites is Kevin Harvick. The leading contender has two wins on the 2014 Circuit, and 13 top-10 finishes. Harvick has won more than $4 million this season, and would love nothing more than to cap of the year with a championship.

Harvick is just six points behind the Sprint Cup Points leader Brad Keselowski. There are actually quite a few drivers in between Harvick and the top spot, but oddsmakers obviously like the way he is driving.

Among those in between include Dale Earnhardt Jr, Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, and Joey Logano.

Not surprisingly, these drivers make up the majority of Sprint Cup Championship favorites. It’s Gordon and Keselowski who are just behind. Harvick is set at 7/2, with Gordon at 4/1, and Keselowski at 9/2.

Johnson (6/1), and Earnhardt Jr (13/2) make up the rest of the top-five favorites as seen on Bovada Sportsbook.

There are a full 10 races to go so there is a ton that can still happen. The driver leading after the final 10 races will be crowned the Sprint Cup champion. Johnson is the defending champion, after a two-year absence from his five victories in a row. Johnson found his way back on the top of the racing world, and once again has a great shot at getting another title.

Chicagoland Speedway is the site of the first of the 10 Chase races. The 400 will get underway this Sunday, September 14th. Keselowski is the favorite alongside Harvick. Both drivers are going off at 5/1. Gordon, Johnson, and Logano follow suit. As you can see, the betting lines aren’t all that different from the way the Chase For The Cup payouts look.
