Brad Keselowski is hogging all the headlines as the Sprint Cup Series heads to Atlanta Motor Speedway for the second straight race under the lights, but he’s behind six other drivers on the NASCAR betting odds for the AdvoCare 500 on Sunday night (7:30 pm Eastern, ESPN).
Keselowski locked down a stranglehold on one of the two wild-card spots available in the Chase for the Sprint Cup to the two drivers with the most wins ranked between No. 11 and No. 20 in the driver standings by winning the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol last weekend, as he took the checkered flag for his third victory of the season. Keselowski sits just outside the Top 10 in 11th place in the driver standings with 689 points.
Denny Hamlin currently holds the other wild-card berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup with one victory and 672 points in the standings to sit in 13th place. Clint Bowyer is ahead of Hamlin with 688 points but has yet to pay a visit to Victory Lane this season.
Kyle Busch and five-time defending champion Jimmie Johnson, both at 3/1 odds on the NASCAR futures to win the Sprint Cup, and Carl Edwards at 5/1 odds lead the Sprint Cup contenders heading into the regular season’s penultimate race at Atlanta before the cutoff is made. All three of those drivers have already clinched their spots in the Chase, along with Matt Kenseth (8/1) and Kevin Harvick (9/1).
Jeff Gordon is at 7/1 odds to win the Sprint Cup and sits in sixth place, while Ryan Newman (25/1), Kurt Busch (11/1), Dale Earnhardt Jr. (20/1) and Tony Stewart (40/1) round out the current Top 10 drivers.
Stewart is the defending champion at Atlanta and is listed at 11/1 odds to successfully defend his title this weekend, with Johnson, Edwards and Kyle Busch listed as the co-favorites at 8/1. Gordon is listed at 9/1 and Harvick at 10/1, with the red-hot Keselowski listed along with Stewart at 11/1 odds.
