Gamblers…ready for NASCAR All-Star Race Odds betting? NASCAR’s Sprint Cup series will kick-off a two-week stay at Charlotte Motor Speedway with the running of its annual Sprint Cup All-Star Race this Saturday night.
NASCAR Sprint Cup- 2016 Sprint All-Star Race Preview and Prediction
Race: All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway
Date: Saturday, May 21
Time: 7 p.m. (ET)
Broadcast: FOX Sports 1
This $1 million non-point event is set to get underway at 7 p.m. (ET) and it will be broadcast nationally on FOX Sports 1.
Heading into Charlotte, Matt Kenseth joined the list of point-race winners this season with last Sunday’s victory at Dover.
NASCAR’s young guns continued to make some noise in that race with Kyle Larson taking second and my top-valued longshot Chase Elliott finishing third.
The following is a look at my top favorite, contender and longshot to win the 2016 All-Star Race based on odds provided by TopBet.
NASCAR All-Star Race Odds: The Favorite (odd of less than 10/1)
The top picks in this category include familiar faces such as Kevin Harvick and Jimmie Johnson, but I like Kyle Busch’s +700 odds to win as the top-valued pick.
Behind the wheel of the No. 18 Toyota, he is off to one of the best starts of his Sprint Cup career with three checkered flags to go along with another six finishes in the Top 5 of the first 12 point-race events on the schedule.
When it comes to the All-Star Race, Busch has yet to win this event, but he has placed sixth or better in four of his last five tries.
NASCAR All-Star Race Odds: The Contender (odds from 10/1 to 19/1)
I was hot on Denny Hamlin and the No. 11 Toyota earlier in the season after he won the Daytona 500 and finished third in back-to-back races at Phoenix and Fontana.
That run has cooled quite a bit with just two Top 10 runs in his last seven Sprint Cup point events, but I still feel these is some excellent value in his +1200 betting odds to win on Saturday night.
Hamlin has raced well in this event over the past few years with finishes inside the top seven drivers in five of his last seven All-Star Races including a victory in this race last season.
NASCAR All-Star Race Odds: The Longshot (odds 20/1 or greater)
At one time earlier in his career Kasey Kahne would routinely be listed among the top drivers to win a race, but he has fallen on some hard times over the past few seasons.
He has recently made a mini-run this season in the No. 5 Chevy with Top 5 finishes at Richmond and Dover this past Sunday, so current form adds some value to his +2000 betting odds to win at Charlotte in this exhibition race.
Kahne has also raced well in three of his last four All-Star events with Top 10 finishes.
He actually won this race back in 2007 when it was still known as the Sprint All-Star Challenge.
