Jimmie Johnson Favored at Michigan Online Sports Betting

December 1, 2010 Sports Betting

Online sports betting has Jimmie Johnson favored to win the NASCAR race at Michigan this week.

There are only four races remaining before the Chase field is set so the sportsbetting action should be exciting.

Online sports betting has Johnson as the 3.5 to 1 favorite to win the race at Michigan on Sunday.  Johnson still trails Tony Stewart for the top spot in the NASCAR standings.  The focus is going to be on the last part of the Top 12 since only 195 points separates seventh-place Juan Pablo Montoya from 15th place Clint Bowyer.

This week at Michigan favors Johnson at the sportsbook but a number of drivers have a chance to win in online sports betting.  In the last nine races at Michigan there have been a total of eight different winners. Carl Edwards is the two-time winner in the past nine races at Michigan as he won the spring race in 2007 and the fall race in 2008. Michigan has been a place where Ford has done well. They have won this race 31 times in the 80 races. That should bode well for the Rousch drivers this week.

Mark Martin has won this race four times and he will be a contender and is listed at 7-1 which makes him the third choice in online sports betting.  Greg Biffle, Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth have each won this race twice.  Biffle is the fourth choice in online sports betting this week at 7.5 to 1. 

The second choice in sportsbetting this week is Tony Stewart at 6.5 to 1. All Stewart does is win nearly every week so he is never a bad choice. Kyle Busch is the co-fourth choice at 7.5 to 1 with Biffle.  Jeff Gordon and Edwards are 8.5 to 1 in online betting.  Kurt Busch and Denny Hamlin are 10-1 in sportsbetting this week.

The longshots begin with Matt Kenseth and Brian Vickers who are 15-1 each in online sports betting.  Kasey Kahne and Juan Pablo Montoya are 18-1 each in online betting.  Ryan Newman is 20-1 while fan favorite Dale Earnhardt Jr. is 25-1 at the sportsbook.  Kevin Harvick is 35-1 in online sports betting although with the unlucky season he is having he ought to be 5000-1.  Clint Bowyer and David Reutimann are 35-1 each while the field is 12-1 in sportsbetting.
