NASCAR Betting Odds: Coke Zero 400 at Daytona Intl Speedway

Did Trevor Bayne's win in the Daytona 500 back in February burn you on the NASCAR betting lines? You get a second chance to win some money on the track this weekend when the drivers of the Sprint Cup Series take on Daytona again in the Coke Zero 400.
Bayne went from no-name to longshot winner in the season-opening Daytona 500, taking the checkered flag in that crash-filled race. Since then, though, Bayne has not made any impact whatsoever on the Series.
Still, if you think Bayne can catch lightning in a bottle once again this weekend you can get him at 35/1 on the Bodog Sportsbook odds for the Coke Zero 400. Normally, Bayne would be much farther back on the odds list, but a 'Daytona pedigree' gives him a boost.
Last year's Coke Zero 400 was won by Kevin Harvick, and he's at 9/1 to visit Victory Lane on Saturday night at Daytona. The favorite for the race, though, is Dale Earnhardt Jr. at 8/1 odds. That puts them just ahead of Carl Edwards, who sits at 11/1 for the race.
Harvick also won the Daytona 500 back in 2007, while Earnhardt Jr. took the checkered flag at Daytona in 2004 (Daytona 500) and 2001 (Pepsi 400). Edwards, the Sprint Cup standings leader, is still looking for his first Cup victory at Daytona.
Jimmie Johnson, Kurt Busch, Kyle Busch and Tony Stewart are all at 12/1 odds to win the Coke Zero 400 this week. Johnson won the Daytona 500 in 2006, while Stewart is a three-time winner of the Coke Zero 400/Pepsi 400 (2009, 2006, 2005).
Kyle Busch won the Coke Zero 400 in 2008, while brother Kurt has never visited Victory Lane at the track. Kurt Busch, though, is coming off a win last week in the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at the road course at Infineon.
