Everything comes down to this, the last NASCAR race of the year at the Homestead-Miami racetrack. Just four drivers remain in contention for this year’s Sprint Cup Championship with the area once more narrowing after last week’s race at Phoenix International Raceway that saw Kurt Busch, Kevin Harvick, Matt Kenseth and Denny Hamlin all removed.
BetOnline has you covered for all your gaming needs moving into the last running of the year, and it has upgraded the Sprint Cup futures last time before motorists set their own cars at the garage for winter.
Jimmie Johnson will enter Sunday’s race as the favorite and that sounds fair. The Chevy driver may need to construct an extension on his prize situation as a win this weekend would be his seventh career Sprint Cup Championship. The 41-year-old won five consecutive championships from 2006 to 2010 and his most recent win came back in 2013. Johnson can be grabbed at +200 right now.
Kyle Busch, Joey Logano and Carl Edwards round out the round of four and have chances of +250, +275 and +275 respectively to win the 2016 Sprint Cup Championship. Of those guys, Kyle is the only one with previous experience winning the trophy as he’s the current defender of the name.
Logano has been running hot of late. He has won just two of the last five races and has finished outside the top five in just one of those races. He’s been driving better than anyone in the entire field so it would seem the intelligent money would be about the only Ford driver staying.
As I mention in my post about the Ford EcoBoost 400, seven of the 17 winners that the race has generated have driven a Ford, undoubtedly the biggest number of wins for any maker. Given Logano’s +275 chances, as well as the history in the Homestead-Miami racetrack, a wager on the No. 22 car appears to be a nice one.
Odds to Win the 2016 Sprint Cup Championship
Odds in BetOnline at November 18 Jimmie Johnson +200
Kyle Busch +250
Joey Logano +275
Carl Edwards +275
Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch have swapped places on the odds listing in Sprint Cup championship stocks following a poor finish from Harvick at the Cheez-It 355.
Busch is now the +500 preferred to win the Sprint Cup on BetOnline after submitting four straight top-10 consequences such as a win in the Brickyard. The Toyota driver sits second in the Sprint Cup standings and can be tied with Brad Keselowski for most wins on the circuit this year.
Keselowski sits on the odds board although he leads the standings in points and gets the second-most top-five finishes. The Ford driver was the Sprint Cup winner back in 2012 and will push hard to be crowned the king of NASCAR once more.
Jimmie Johnson has hung on to his +800 chances to catch the hardware for the seventh time in his profession. He won the Sprint Cup five consecutive days from 2006-2010 and can be sitting in sixth place in the standings right now. He has won two races this year but is coming off a last-place finish at Watkins Glen.
Tony Stewart is trying desperately to climb back into the race in his final NASCAR year but it might be too little too late for your Chevy driver. His chances have moved from +2000 to +1600 after four top-five finishes in the last five races but he sits 11th in the rankings and might have to make up a lot of ground.
