NASCAR Betting: Auto Club Speedway Preview

NASCAR Driver Jimmie Johnson

NASCAR betting opportunities resume this weekend with some fresh Sprint Cup action. Jimmie Johnson is the favorite to come home with a win at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana.

Johnson has 7/2 odds to take care of business this weekend. The Hendrick Motorsports superstar is still searching for his first win of the season, as he’s been a little inconsistent so far in 2011. However, he did turn in a third-place effort at the Jeff Byrd 500 last time out, so he should be carrying some momentum into the week.

Carl Edwards is next in line with 6/1 odds to win at Auto Club Speedway. Unlike Johnson, Edwards is off to a blistering start in 2011. He’s racked up first or second-place finishes in three of his last four races, including a second-place effort last weekend. Edwards also has a couple of poles this season, so he looks like the man to beat right now.

Kyle Busch has 8/1 NASCAR odds this weekend, and he might be the lone driver who could be considered hotter than Edwards. Busch has already racked up three Top-10 finishes in his four Cup races this year, including two finishes among the Top-5. The Joe Gibbs Racing star capped it off with a victory at last week’s Jeff Byrd 500.

Jeff Gordon rolls into Auto Club Speedway with 17/2 odds to take the checkered flag. Gordon won the Subway Fresh Fit 500 earlier this season, just his second victory in three years, but it’s hard to trust him. That was his only Top-10 finish of the season, and Gordon was a middling 14th last weekend.
