With only one race remaining in the 2011 season, Edwards holds a slender three-point lead on Stewart in the driver standings and simply needs to cross the finish line ahead of Stewart on Sunday in order to win the Sprint Cup crown. Edwards did exactly that last year at the Ford 400, winning at the Homestead-Miami track while Stewart was well behind in eighth place.

Stewart is the hottest driver when it comes to more recent form however, as he’s won four of the nice races staged so far in the Chase for the Sprint Cup including back-to-back victories at Martinsville and Texas on October 30 and November 6 respectively. Last week at the Kobalt Tools 500 in Phoenix won by Kasey Kahne, Stewart finished a strong third with Edwards crossing the line ahead of him in second place.

Stewart is favored to win the race this Sunday at 5/1 odds, just ahead of Edwards at 11/2. Both drivers have two previous victories on the Homestead-Miami track, with Edwards winning the Ford 400 in 2008 as well as last year and Stewart winning the first two races held in Cup competition on this track back in 1999 and 2000.

Edwards is listed as the -125 favorite to finish ahead of Stewart on Sunday and lift the Sprint Cup championship trophy, while Stewart is at +105 to come from behind and claim the title.
