QUICKEN LOANS 400 ODDS

LeBron James is playing in the NBA Finals.
Albert Pujols left the St. Louis Cardinals.
Hulk Hogan turned on Randy Savage and joined the NWO.
Now, I know they feel.


The Quiken Loans 400 takes place in Michigan International Speedway. American automakers use these races as a chance to showcase their successes. Thank goodness there are more of those to share in recent years.

But business is business. Joey Logano’s quest to avoid a pink slip has me up a fake 405 dollars. So, sven though this race is a celebration of a state I love, the numbers suggest more “Born In The U.S.A” than “Real American.”

15 fake dollars on Kyle Busch at 10/1
Busch has the third beset finish among active drivers at Michigan over the last five years. Carl Edwards is sputtering. Tony Stewart just got out of a sputtering streak. Plus, Busch needs a win and won here last year.

15 fake dollars on Denny Hamlin at 12/1
Two drivers have two wins at MIS the last five years.  One is Carl Edwards. The other has much better odds.

5 fake dollars on Mark Martin, Martin Truex Jr. and Clint Bowyer at 30/1
Michael Waltrip Racing’s comeback is a great American story, even if their manufacturer is headquartered thousands of miles away.

5 fake dollars on Joey Logano at 50/1
Maybe he could be this year’s Brad Keselowski?

Six drivers. All Toyota. Go Oklahoma City, whoever replaced Tony LaRussa and Ric Flair. I need the karma. Here’s what The Spread thinks; enjoy the race, and insert random catchphrase here.
