NASCAR Sprint Cup Advo Care 500
Race: Advo Care 500 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway
Date: Sunday, Sept 2, 2012
Time: 6:30 p.m. (ET)
Denny Hamlin made his way to victory lane for the third time this season with a victory last Saturday night at Bristol. Jimmie Johnson ended-up second and Jeff Gordon finished third
The following is a closer look at our favorite, contender, and longshot for this Sunday night’s race along with their current odds to win as provided by WagerWeb.
The Favorite (odds of less than 10/1)
Jimmy Johnson is in solid form to add a sixth Sprint Cup title to his resume heading into this year’s Chase. The No.48 car is currently second in the standings with 838 points after posting his 12th top-five finish of the year. Johnson has already clinched a spot in this year’s Chase and has been opened as the +500 favorite to add a fourth checkered flag to this season’s total. The value in his odds is there with a third-place finish in this race in 2010 and a second-place finish last year. Overall, he has won at Atlanta three previous times and has an average finishing position here of 9.9.
The Contender (odds of 10/1 to 19/1)
After coming close last week, Jeff Gordon has been opened at +1000 to get the victory he so desperately needs to work his way into the Chase. He is currently 14th in the standings and 16 points behind Kyle Busch for the second Wildcard spot. What makes Gordon so attractive as this week’s contender is his victory in last year’s race. The long-time Sprint Cup veteran has five career wins at Atlanta and an average finishing position of 12.2.
The Longshot (odds of 20/1 or higher)
Its slim pickings this week if you are looking to take a flyer on a longshot as most of the top contenders have odds of less than 20/1. The only driver with higher odds that may have a shot at winning on Sunday night is Ryan Newman at +3500. He has an outside shot at making the Chase but would have to win one of the final two races and finish pretty high in the other. Not helping the situation is the fact that the No. 39 car does not have a solid track record at Atlanta. Newman has never won here and has an average finishing position of 17.5.
