NASCAR Betting: 2011 Kyle Busch Preview

With 10/1 odds to win the Sprint Cup championship, Kyle Busch is one of the biggest favorites on this year’s NASCAR betting odds. But with just one career Top-5 finish in the season standings, can he come through with a title? This is your 2011 Kyle Busch preview.

Busch enjoyed one of the strongest seasons of his career in 2010, finishing eighth in the final standings. It was his fourth career Top-10 finish in the Sprint Cup standings, with his best being a fifth-place finish in 2007.

The Joe Gibbs Racing star has shown tons of flash throughout his young career, but he’s yet to put it all together in one season. The closest he came was 2008, when he came through with career-highs in wins (eight), poles (seven), Top-5 finishes (17), and Top-10 finishes (21). Despite the impressive totals, Busch finished just 10th in the final Sprint Cup standings.

Last season, Busch was solid if unspectacular. He racked up a respectable three victories while adding a pair of poles, but he didn’t flirt with the winner’s circle as much as in 2008. Busch produced 10 results among the Top 5, while adding 18 finishes among the Top 10. The most positive stat was his average finish; Busch posted the second-best number of his career at 14.0 (it was 12.5 in 2008).

Unfortunately, his 2011 campaign is off to a rather lukewarm start, as the best he could muster was a 16th-place finish at the Bud Shootout. It was a disappointing result after a hot start last season, when he picked up a pair of Top-5 finishes in his first two races.
