December 1, 2010 Sportsbook

Online sportsbook action for the NASCAR race at Watkins Glen this week has five main contenders.

With the number of races dwindling until the chase for the Sprint Cup begins, the racing should be exciting and the Internet sportsbook odds close. Here is a look at the five most likely winners at Watkins Glen and their online sportsbook numbers.

Online sportsbook numbers slightly favor Tony Stewart this week to win at Watkins Glen. He is listed at +425 at the Internet sportsbook which is slightly better than Marcos Ambrose, Jeff Gordon, Juan Pablo Montoya and Kyle Busch. Ambrose and Gordon are +550 each at the Internet sportsbook while Montoya and Busch are +650 at the online sportsbook.

The NASCAR action at the online sportsbook this season has been unpredictable. There have been 12 different winners this season which ties the all-time record set last year. It is very likely with 14 races remaining that the record will fall and it could happen this week.

If you are surprised to see Juan Pablo Montoya and Marcus Ambrose among the sports betting favorites this week at the online sportsbook you should not be. Watkins Glen is a road course and both of these drivers started their careers on road courses and both have won in the past in NASCAR on road courses.

A total of 15 drivers will be racing in both the Sprint Cup race on Sunday and Saturday’s Nationwide race. Kyle Busch leads the Nationwide Series as online sports betting info shows and he will be joined on the online sportsbook odds board by Carl Edwards, Marcos Ambrose, Kevin Harvick, Brian Vickers, Jeff Burton, Joey Logano, David Ragan, Denny Hamlin, Greg Biffle, Robby Gordon, Paul Menard, Joe Nemechek, Dave Blaney and Scott Speed.

If you want a big longshot in NASCAR odds this week at the online sportsbook you might want to consider John Andretti. He could have sports betting odds on his own at the Internet sportsbook or he could be part of the field. He has won at Watkins Glen in the past and would be an interesting choice at the online sportsbook. It is hard to argue with the online sports betting favorites at the online sportsbook though since Tony Stewart and Jeff Gordon have become known as excellent road course racers and both should be in contention on Sunday. Qualifying will be very important so take a look at the starting spots before you make your wagers at the online sportsbook for this week’s race.
