Johnson Favored in Online Sports Betting at Martinsville

December 1, 2010 Sports Betting

Online sports betting numbers favor Jimmie Johnson to win the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 this week at Martinsville.

In fact, Johnson is one of the biggest favorites ever in NASCAR offshore sports betting.

Online sports betting odds list Johnson as the 2-1 favorite to win this week’s race.  Those numbers are as low as you will ever see for a driver to win a race. Winning in NASCAR is not supposed to be easy but Johnson has won five of the last seven races at Martinsville. He is coming off a win at Bristol last week.

Denny Hamlin and Jeff Gordon are co-second choices in online sports betting at 5-1. Tony Stewart is the only other driver with single-digit odds as he is listed at 9-1. This is a very important week for Hamlin since he enters Sunday’s race 19th in the points.  This is the lowest he has ever been after five races.  He has had success at Martinsville in the past. He is the only driver other than Johnson to win in the last seven races. He as finished sixth or better in each of the last seven races at Martinsville. Johnson’s teammate Jeff Gordon has 14 straight top-10 finishes at the track, including 10 straight top-five finishes.  Stewart finished second last week and he is now fifth in the points.  He finished in the Top-10 in both races last season at Martinsville including a third-place finish.

Mark Martin, Kurt Busch, Kyle Busch, Juan Pablo Montoya and Kevin Harvick are 13.5 to 1 in NASCAR odds.  Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth, Jeff Burton, Jamie McMurray and Clint Bowyer are 18.5 to 1. Ryan Newman and Dale Earnhardt Jr. are 26.5 to 1 in offshore sports betting. Kasey Kahne and Greg Biffle are 31-1 while Joey Logano is 37-1. Kurt Busch may be overvalued considering he has not had a Top-10 finish at Martinsville in his last eight races there. Juan Pablo Montoya might be undervalued.  He has never finished worse than 16th in six races at Martinsville. He was third last season.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. is eighth in points and he has not finished worse than 13th in the spring Martinsville race in the last nine years. He is making progress and could have another good finish this week. Ryan Newman finished in the Top 10 at Martinsville in both races last year and he could have a good week.
