NASCAR Betting – Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami

NASCAR betting wraps up the 2008 season with the Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami on Sunday, November 16th.

The race is the final one in the Chase for the Cup. Jimmie Johnson pretty much had the Cup wrapped up weeks ago so this should just be a formality for him. Online NASCAR betting odds should be good though, especially since it is the last race of the year.

NASCAR betting odds will probably have Carl Edwards as the favorite for this race. He has been having a great finish to the season and online NASCAR betting gamblers have taken notice. It is also not the first time that Edwards has made a late season charge on the NASCAR betting odds board.  In 2005 he nearly caught Tony Stewart for the Cup but fell just short. That same fate probably awaits him this year in NASCAR betting as Johnson has been superb. Another driver that should be popular in NASCAR betting this week is Greg Biffle.  He won the race three straight years from 2004-2006 and will have short online NASCAR betting odds this week.

What is interesting about this race in NASCAR betting is that Johnson could make history at Miami. He is seeking a Spring Cup three-peat which has only been done once in the sport’s history according to NASCAR betting history information. Cale Yarborough won three straight titles from 1976-1978. Since that time no other driver has been able to win three straight Cups according to NASCAR betting history and that includes all of the greats.  There is no question that NASCAR betting odds have been dominated the last few seasons by Jimmie Johnson. If you are going to lay down money on a race you must take Johnson into consideration in online NASCAR betting odds.

NASCAR betting odds might not favor Johnson to win this week’s race but they sure do favor him in most races. He is a force every week during the season and normally is a serious favorite in NASCAR betting. If Johnson does complete the three-peat this weekend he would take his place in NASCAR history along side the great Cale Yarborough.
