NASCAR Sprint Cup Toyota/Save Mart 350 Preview and Prediction
Race: Toyota/Save Mart 350
Date: Sunday, June 24, 2012
Time: 2 p.m. (ET)
Sunday’s race is slated to begin at 2 p.m. and it will be broadcast nationally on TNT.
It was four years in the making, but Dale Earnhardt Jr. finally ended his winless streak in the Sprint Cup series with a victory last week at Michigan.
Tony Stewart ended-up second and Matt Kenseth finished 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 Bovada.
The Favorite (odds of less than 10/1)
Jeff Gordon has been opened at 13/2 to win this race but these odds are not really based on current form.
The No. 24 car is coming off a sixth-place finish last week but it is still languishing in 20th place in the standings and is over 80 points out of the top 10. All the value in his odds is based on his past performance on this road course.
Gordon has compiled five career victories at Sonoma with the last coming in 2006.
The Contender (odds of 10/1 to 19/1)
Over the past few seasons Kevin Harvick has established himself as one of the top drivers in the Sprint Cup series, but on a track of this nature it is easy to see why he has been opened as a mild longshot at 10/1 to win this week. He has three top-10 finishes in his last four races so current form helps to enhance these odds, but there is also value in them given his recent performance at Sonoma. The No. 29 car ended-up ninth in last year’s race to go along with a second-place finish in 2007 and a third-place finish in 2010.
The Longshot (odds of 20/1 or higher)
There are a number of quality drivers with long odds given the fact that this is a road race, but the one to watch this week is Carl Edwards at 22/1.
Last season’s Sprint Cup runner-up has been extremely quiet this year with just two-top five finishes but the No.99 car has been getting more and more competitive with each passing race.
The other value in these odds comes from a third-place finish in last year’s race.
Edwards also has a sixth-place finish in 2006 and a ninth-place finish in 2008 on his resume at Sonoma.
