May 31, 2011 Sports Betting

Kyle Busch and Jimmie Johnson are co-favorites in online sports betting to win Sunday’s FedEx 400 at Dover.

Each driver is listed at 4.5-1 in sports betting at the Sbg sportsbook. Here is a look at the chances of Busch and Johnson and some of the other leading contenders to win at Dover.

Jimmie Johnson leads all active drivers with six victories at Dover and Hendrick Motorsports has won at Dover a total of 12 times. It helps to be up front at Dover as 50 times a winner has started from a top-five starting position with 13 races being won from the pole.  Only 17 times has a driver started from outside the top 10 and won.

Jimmie Johnson 4.5-1
You have to start at Dover with Johnson who has six wins and eight top five finishes. He has won the pole three times and won at Dover last September.

Kyle Busch 4.5-1
He has won twice at Dover and finished in the top 10 a total of seven times.

Carl Edwards 6.5-1
He has been very consistent at Dover with six top five finishes including one win.

Denny Hamlin 8.5-1
He is moving up the standings each week and could be poised to get his first win of the season.

Tony Stewart 10-1
He still hasn’t had things really come together this season and his teammate Ryan Newman is a better bet.

Kevin Harvick 10-1
He has two wins on the season and it has basically been all or nothing for Harvick this season as he either wins or finishes poorly.

Jeff Gordon 10-1
He has won four times at Dover and finished in the top 10 a total of 21 times but something seems off with Gordon’s team right now and it is hard to make a case for him winning.

Longshots – Greg Biffle 13-1 and Ryan Newman 25-1
Okay, he is not a huge longshot but at 13-1, Biffle does have a lot of value in online sports betting. He has won twice in his career at Dover and finished in the top five a total of six times. Newman is 25-1 and his resume at Dover is a good one with three wins and six top five finishes.
