Odds to Win the NASCAR Pennsylvania 400– Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin at Top
The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series returns to action this week and will be coming to us from Pocono Raceway for the Pennsylvania 400. Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin are the favorites at +600.
Johnson is currently #4 in the point standings, just 27 points behind leader Dale Earnhardt Jr. JJ is a danger every week and has the potential to win any race. He has 3 wins so far on the season and 10 top 5 finishes. Even though Jr. is my favorite, Johnson is definitely the favorite to win another Sprint Cup Series.
Hamlin is one spot behind Jimmie at 5th in the Cup standings. He has won twice so far and has nine top 5 finishes on the year. Hamlin races well at Pocono and has 4 wins on the track along with eight top 5 finishes. He has the highest driver rating of any active drivers on the track.
Even though he hasn’t fared well at this track in the past, I have a feeling about Kyle Busch this week. He is close to that bubble, sitting at #11 in the point standings right now. Busch has won once this season and has four top 5’s. And even though I’m not calling it for this race, I am saying that Earnhardt Jr. will get 1 more win at least this year. When you turn in that many top 5 finishes you are going to be in a position to win.
