Greg Biffle took the checkered flag last Sunday at Michigan to notch his second win of the year. For the second week in a row Brad Keselowski was the runner-up and Kasey Kahne finished third.

The following is a closer look at our favorite, contender, and longshot for this Saturday night’s race along with their current odds to win.

The Favorite (odds of less than 10/1)

The third time could be the charm for Brad Keselowski, who is one of the favorites to win this week at 7/1. Not only does he have back-to-back second-place finishes in the last two point races, he comes into this race with back-to-back victories at this track. The No.2 car won this race last year and it took the checkered flag in the first race here this season. Keselowski has been one of the best drivers all season with three victories and six other top-five finishes that have him in fifth-place in the Sprint Cup standings with 776 points. [ad-8757089]

The Contender (odds of 10/1 to 19/1)

Another driver that has lit things up this season is Matt Kenseth. Since winning the Daytona 500 to kick things off, he has posted 13 more top-10 finishes to pull into second place in the standings with 803 points, which is only 20 points out of the lead.  [ad-8757089]

The No. 17 car finished second earlier this year at Bristol and was sixth in last year’s race. Kenseth took the checkered flag in this race in 2005 and 2006 and has an average finishing position at this track of 11.6. He has been opened at 10/1 to add a third career victory here on Saturday night.

The Longshot (odds of 20/1 or higher)

There are a couple of solid drivers with long odds this week but the one that jumps off the page is Kevin Harvick at 20/1.

The last few months have been forgettable for the No. 29 car with just one top-10 finish in the last eight races, but this team is still in eighth-place in the standings and almost guaranteed to make the Chase with 738 points.

Harvick’s recent performance at this track has been less than spectacular as well, but he does have nine top-five finishes here and an average finishing position of 12.4.
