Bet on the Chase races this fall at America’s Bookie.
Brad Keselowski, Kevin Harvick and Jeff Gordon are the opening line favorites to win the race this week. Jimmie Johnson is next in the market and Joey Logano follows him up. This is going to be a great race with big implications for the drivers in the Chase.

2014 MyAFibStory.com 400 Preview & Picks
NASCAR will be at the Chicagoland Speedway for the 2014 MyAFibStory.com 400. The race is on Sunday afternoon and will be aired live on ESPN. There are only ten races left this year and I can’t wait to see how everything turns out with the new Chase format.
Chicagoland Speedway is an intermediate track. Johnson, Gordon, Keselowski, Logano and Kyle Busch have won on this track type in 2014, so those are going to be the most popular bets. Let’s take a look at who I’ll be betting on to win the MyAFibStory.com 400.
Brad Keselowski (5/1) is one of the favorites and he has done well on this track in recent years. Keselowski has finished 7th place or better in Chicago the L3 years including a win in 2012. Keselowski is leading the Sprint Cup standings heading into the race.
Another one of the favorites, Jeff Gordon (5/1), is unlikely to win this week in my opinion. Gordon won on this track in 2006, but he has struggled a bit in recent years. Last year he finished in 6th, but prior to that he finished outside of the T20 two years in a row.
The other favorite is Kevin Harvick (5/1) and I don’t like his chances either. His driver rating doesn’t match up with the best drivers on this track despite the fact that he has some strong finishes including a 3rd place last year and a 2nd place finish in 2011.
I’m betting on Kyle Busch (12/1) to win, as his odds seem too high compared to the rest of the top contenders. He has the 3rd best driver rating on this track the L2 years. He finished in 2nd place last year and 4th place in 2012 in Chicago.
Busch has one win on this track back in 2008 and last year he actually led the race for 67 laps. Jimmie Johnson (6/1) has the best driver rating on this track the L2 years and he is the only other driver besides Busch to finish in the T5 the L2 years in Chicago.
Johnson finished 5th place last year and 2nd place in 2012. He has actually never won in Chicago though, which is a huge surprise, as he has led this race every year since 2002 except for once in 2006. I like him to contend, but won’t be betting on him at 6/1 odds.
· My Pick: Kyle Busch +1200
