NASCAR Sprint Cup AAA Texas 500
Race: AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway
Date: Sunday, Nov.4, 2012
Time: 2 p.m. (ET)
Jimmie Johnson returned to the top of the standings with a win last week at Martinsville with Kyle Busch taking second and Kasey Kahne keeping his title hopes alive by ending-up third.
The following is a closer look at our favorite, contender, and longshot for this Sunday’s race along with their current odds to win as provided by WagerWeb.
The Favorite (odds of less than 10/1)
Denny Hamlin’s chances at winning this year’s title took a major hit with last week’s disastrous 33rd-place finish, but the No.11 car is always a threat to win with five previous victories this season including one in the second race of the Chase. Hamlin has been opened as a +500 second-favorite to win this Sunday and now that he is 49 points out of the lead, you know that he will be racing for the checkered flag as soon as the first green one is waved. Adding even more value to these odds is his back-to-back victories at Texas in the 2010 season.
The Contender (odds of 10/1 to 19/1)
Kasey Kahne is one of the few drivers left in the Chase with a legitimate shot at winning the title. After last week’s third-place finish he is now fourth in the Sprint Cup standings and 29 points out of the lead. The No.5 car as contended just about every week in the Chase with five top-10 finishes in the seven races. Kahne has been opened at +1000 to win this Sunday at Texas and adds some value to these odds after coming close with a third-place finish in last year’s race and a seventh-place finish earlier this season here.
The Longshot (odds of 20/1 or higher)
Kevin Harvick has been a forgotten man over the second half of the season and a complete non-factor in the Chase, but he still has the ability to win anytime he gets behind the wheel. The No.29 car has yet to crack the top 10 in any of the seven races in the Chase so it is easy to see why Harvick has been opened at +2000 to break through with a win this time around. His past performance at Texas has been nothing to write home about either with zero wins and an average finishing of 12.7, but as we mentioned, the racing form is still there.
