Internet Sport Betting Eight Contenders in Pep Boys 500

December 1, 2010 Sports Betting

Internet sport betting on Sunday should be exciting when the Pep Boys 500 gets underway at the Atlanta Motor Speedway.

There are eight drivers with offshore sports betting odds of less than 10-1 at the sportsbook.

Internet sport betting has Jimmie Johnson as the 4-1 favorite.  Kyle Busch and Mark Martin are co-second choices in offshore sports betting at 6.5 to 1. Three drivers, Carl Edwards, Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart are 7.5 to 1 in Internet sport betting while Greg Biffle and Kurt Busch are 10-1 each at the online sportsbook.

Internet sport betting tells us that this race can be seen on ESPN on Sunday.  Last year in offshore sports betting it was Carl Edwards winning this race with Jimmie Johnson finishing second.  Denny Hamlin, Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch rounded out the Top 5 last year.  Edwards has won in Internet sport betting in this race twice as he also won in 2005.  Johnson won this race in 2007 and in 2004.  Stewart was the offshore sports betting winner in 2006 while Gordon won in 2003 and Kurt Busch in 2002.

Edwards could be a good value choice in Internet sport betting this week.  In five races at Atlanta, Edwards has two wins, a second, a third and a seventh-place finish.   Johnson is the favorite at the sportsbook and his Internet sport betting numbers in this race are strong.  He held off Edwards two years ago to win this Internet sport betting race.

Internet sport betting tells us that there have been 100 NASCAR Sprint Cup races at Atlanta, two each year except in 1961 when they had three.  You would think that starting on the pole would be a good thing in this race but the pole winner has only won once in the last 13 years.  Overall the pole winner has won only 14 times which is really not a strong number considering the number of races. The farthest back anyone has won from was 39th when Bobby Labonte started there in 2001.  Internet sport betting tells us that the top five spots have won 57% of the time while the Top 10 is at 79%.

The rest of the offshore sports betting odds for this race at the online sportsbook have Brian Vickers and Denny Hamlin at 12-1 each.  Kasey Kahne, Juan Montoya and Dale Earnhardt Jr. are 17-1 each in Internet sport betting.  Clint Bowyer and Matt Kenseth are 22-1 each with Ryan Newman at 25-1.  The rest of the drivers are in the field and are listed at 10-1 in offshore sports betting.
