2013 FOOD CITY 500 ODDS

Never has been at level ground felt so fulfilling.
After three straight weeks of losing, Matt Kenseth’s birthday victory brought me back to break even for the 2013 Sprint Cup season. Now comes the hard part.  Bristol is a track Kyle Busch owns, with five wins in sixteen career starts. I have put all of my fake money on him in past events. Yet this year seems different. For having the reputation of stability, Joe Gibbs Racing just seems off. Engine problems plagued them at Dayt ...

2013 KOBALT TOOLS 400 ODDS

Talk about a big gamble...Denny Hamlin’s refusal to pay a $25,000 fine opened a massive can of worms for NASCAR, one that will clearly impact the standings of the 2013 Sprint Cup season. Here’s why: NASCAR can’t have it both ways:What did NASCAR management expect with the “Boys, have at it” policy? Aggressive behavior on the track yields aggressive behavior off the track.

2013 SUBWAY FRESH FIT 500 ODDS

It’s happening Sunday in Phoenix. The 2013 Sprint Cup schedule takes teams to an unpredictable track with varied banking and a new surface. But it’s the same old faces I like at this weekend’s Subway Fresh Fit 500. Here’s why:   Oddsmakers are begging teams to take unheralded drivers. Danica Patrick is 300/1. 300/1 for goodness sake. Team Earhnardt Ganassi is 100/1. Jeff Burton is 100/1. ...

DAYTONA 500 ODDS

 So much for that strategy. After banking most of the offseason on the idea Hendrick Motorsports cars will dominate the 2013 Sprint Cup, team Hendrick sputtered at Saturday’s Sprint Unlimited. Now down a fake 50 dollars before the first real race of the season, it’s time to regroup for Sunday’s Great American Race.   Daytona is a wild card. Qualifying in actual race environments helps whittle down the field. But racing at  a superspeedway negates the ...

SPRINT UNLIMITED ODDS

You can really bet on anything. The Sprint Unlimited doesn’t have rules yet. Fans will vote prior to Saturday’s start. But if people will wage real money on NFL preseason games, the WNBA and Wrestlemania, I can wager fake dollars on a made for television event.   The rules are simple. I wager fifty fake dollars on every Sprint Cup race. I only bet on drivers if I can double my fake money. I keep scoring during the entire season. It’s a recipe for family embarr ...
