DAYTONA 500 ODDS

The Great American Race is here.Racing’s biggest day sparks the beginning of the 2012 Sprint Cup season. Another new year brings another year of wagering fake money on every race, which ought to be interesting when you see the numbers coupled with the action we’ve seen over the last week.As always, there are three ground rules for my picks: I bet fifty fake dollars on every race.  My goal is to double my fake money should I win.I never follow the rules I make up during the ye ...

NASCAR PROP BETS

I can not tell a lie. I’m really happy there isn’t a race this weekend. For starters, it means I can bask in the glow of a Jimmie Johnson victory at Talladega. That means the George Washington of making fake wagers on a NASCAR website is down a mere ten fake dollars as we head into the weekend. It also means all racing fans get a chance to contemplate some pretty big concepts that could shake up your favorite sport. For example: Odds Carl Edwards jumps to Joe Gibbs Racin ...

AARON’S 499 ODDS

  I’ve never practiced voodoo. Maybe I should start.Jimmie Johnson has been worth one of my picks every Sprint Cup race this year.

Down 160 fake dollars, I need all the help I can get.Fo ...

JEFF BYRD 500 ODDS

This should be the easiest column I write all year.Fifty fake dollars on Kyle Busch at 7/2.After all, Busch has four wins at Bristol over the last five years. In fact, only once since 2006 has Busch finished worse than tenth at the world’s most famous short track.But a funny thing happened once I got down 150 fake dollars; I’m going against conventional wisdom.  The stories of 2011 are well documented. What hasn’t been are the engine issues at Joe Gibbs Racing. Problem ...

KOBALT TOOLS 400 ODDS

 Don’t get me wrong; I want to win every week. But I really, really, really want to win this Sunday.When you write a column betting fake money on races and the race takes place in Vegas, losing stinks more. Jeff Gordon added an extra ounce to boo with his win last week, leaving me down a fake 100 dollars heading to a place where people lose far more real dollars every day. Strange thing about the 2011 Sprint Cup season is that while winning has been the sassier story, the losses are w ...
