Five-time defending champion Jimmie Johnson will look to continue climbing up the driver standings this Sunday afternoon as the Chase for the Sprint Cup heads to Kansas Speedway for the Hollywood Casino 400, the fourth of 10 races on the NASCAR betting postseason circuit.
Johnson will hit the starting grid as the 7/1 betting favorite on the NASCAR odds to win the Hollywood Casino 400 after finishing in second place behind Kurt Busch last week at the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway. Johnson sits fifth overall in the driver standings after three races, just 13 points behind current leaders Kevin Harvick and Carl Edwards. Edwards is at 17/2 odds for the Hollywood Casino 400, while Harvick is well down the list at 12/1.
Busch is back at 10/1 odds to win his second consecutive Sprint Cup race this week and is tied for second place behind the co-leaders with Tony Stewart, just nine points behind Harvick and Edwards. Stewart won the first two Sprint Cup races – the Geico 400 at Chicago and the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire – and has two previous career victories on the Kansas track. He is at 8/1 odds to earn his third checkered flag at Kansas on Sunday.
Jeff Gordon sits ninth in the Sprint Cup standings but remains well within striking distance at 19 points back of the lead; he’s second behind Johnson at 15/2 odds to win this week. Other Chase drivers who should be in the mix this week include Kyle Busch at 17/2 odds, Matt Kenseth at 11/1, Brad Keselowski at 12/1, and Denny Hamlin at 18/1. Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Ryan Newman are both longshots at 28/1 odds to win the Hollywood Casino 400.
