NASCAR Sprint Cup Coke Zero 400 Preview and Prediction
Race: Coke Zero 400
Date: Saturday, July 7, 2012
Time: 6:30 p.m. (ET)
Saturday night’s race is slated to get underway at 6:30 p.m. and it will be broadcast nationally on TNT.
Brad Keselowski became the first three-time winner in the Sprint Cup series this season with a victory in last week’s Quaker State 400 at Kentucky. Kasey Kayne ended-up second and Denny Hamlin finished third.
The following is a closer look at our favorite, contender, and longshot for Saturday night’s race along with their current odds to win as provided by Bovada.
The Favorite (odds of less than 10/1)
Dale Earnhardt Jr. finally ended a four-year winless streak with a victory at Michigan a few weeks back and he is in excellent position to add another win this week as the favorite at 9/1. The No. 88 car has already posted six other top-five finishes in the first 17 races to work its way to second in the Sprint Cup standings with a total of 622 points, which is just 11 points out of the lead. Junior’s current form already adds some solid value to these odds but his recent performance at Daytona is another strong reason why he is favored to win. He has three top-five finishes in his last five races at this track including a second-place finish in this season’s Daytona 500.
The Contender (odds of 10/1 to 19/1)
Matt Kenseth has to be happy to back at this track this week after winning the Daytona 500 here in the first point race of the 2012 season. Since that victory, the No. 17 car has finished in the top five seven more times to vault to the top of the standings with 633 points. Given Kenseth’s current form along with the proven ability to win at Daytona adds quite a bit of value to his 12/1 odds this week. To add to his impressive resume here, he also won the Daytona 500 in 2009 and finished second in this race last year.
The Longshot (odds of 20/1 or higher)
Daytona will probably never be considered one of Ryan Newman’s favorite tracks despite winning the 500 in 2008 considering that he has not finished better than 20th in his last eight races here. The value in his odds to win this week as a 25/1 longshot lies in his current form. The No.39 car won earlier in the season at Martinsville to go along with two other top-10 finishes. Newman is currently 15th in the standings with 463 points but in excellent position to make the Chase as a wildcard with another victory or a few top-five finishes.
