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.

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.

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 ...

AUTO CLUB 400 ODDS

Respect.It’s one of the more overused words in the language, abused by countless dopes who think they’ve earned more than they really have.Certain people talk about respect. Others sing about it. Odds makers document respect, along with a lack of it. Down a mere ten fake dollars after Kyle Busch’s win, their numbers for this week sure made me blink. Carl Edwards is for real:Last year, Vegas was slow to the plate on Denny Hamlin. It was only the back half of the season when H ...
