2014 Las Vegas Race Odds

  Las Vegas might be the most under appreciated city on the 2014 Sprint Cup schedule. It gets one race per year, and that race is the third of the 2014 Sprint Cup season. Because it's Vegas and during Spring Break, the race is usually well attended and animated. Vegas also hosts the Sprint Cup banquet which serves as an easy to consume one week PR blitz. Vegas probably deserves a second race, in part because the odds for Sunday's race look so appealing. (more...) ...

2014 Phoenix Odds

  Phoenix is the strangest race of the 2014 Sprint Cup season. Teams spend months trying to get everything right for Daytona. The second the race ends, it's time to move to Phoenix and a totally different style or racing. Teams aren't the only ones making a transition as oddsmakers have to quick react as well. This might explain some of the numbers for Sunday's race. (more...) ...

SPRINT SHOWDOWN ODDS

 Reaching a new low has never made me feel so high and mighty.After last year’s debacle, I promised myself to never bet on any event with the word “all” and “star.” So I planned to take a week off and attempt to tolerate my in laws. Then a funny thing happened. This article was released. The Sprint Showdown is like the anti all-star race. None of the driver have won in the last two years. Some like David Ragan and AJ Allmendinger found bad luck. Others like ...

SHOWTIME SOUTHERN 500 ODDS

Order. We all want it. We never really get it.The more order, the more trends develop. The more trends develop, the more we can anticipate, feel easy and stress less. Crews seek order in their cars. Golfers seek order in their swing. Baseball pitcher seek order in their delivery. You're lucky to harnass order occasion. You never fully corral it.Same can be said for making race picks. After Joe Gibbs Racing smacked me in the mouth, I'm down sixty fake dollars. I'll take the loss though, because I ...

MATTHEW AND DANIEL HANSEN 400 ODDS

Sink. Swim. As Keanu Reeves said in "Speed" when stealing a line from Dennis Hopper, “What do you do?”It’s the end of April and the beginning of the “Oh crap, is our 2011 really in trouble?” part of the 2011 Sprint Cup schedule.  For me, I’m down a fake ten dollars and have plenty of time to succeed. For Joe Gibbs Racing, this weekend’s race at Richmond is a benchmark for sinking or swimming in 2011. "I wish I could say something c ...

SAMSUNG MOBILE 500 ODDS

I need a dart. Or a Magic 8 Ball. Or an octopus that picks race winners. There isn’t a harder place to pick a winner than Texas. It’s great to type this after Kevin Harvick hosed me over again leaving me down a fake $110 going into my least favorite place to pick a winner. It would seem obvious to pick Denny Hamlin. After all, he swept Texas last year and has a great average finishing position. Heck, he was the only driver to finish fifth or better in both Texas races. Problem is ...

GOODY’S FAST PAIN RELIEF 500 ODDS

There’s an old saying in coaching that you enjoy the wins for 24 hours, mourn the losses for 24 hours, then get over it and move on.Tell that to Jimmie Johnson. Or me for that matter. After Kevin Harvick’s pass, I’m down a fake sixty dollars (100 if you count my membership to the "Kevin Harvick Stinks Fan Club”) and going to place where I should write a really short column.Denny Hamlin owns Martinsville; he swept there last year. The first win came on one leg. With t ...
