NASCAR Sprint Cup- Hollywood Casino 400 Preview and Prediction
Race: Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway
Date: Sunday, Oct. 5, 2014
Time: 2 p.m. (ET)
Broadcast: ESPN


The fourth of 10 playoff races to a Sprint Cup title is slated to get underway at 2 p.m. and it will be broadcast nationally on ESPN.

Jeff Gordon improved his chances to take home this season’s title with a win last Sunday at Dover. Brad Keselowski turned in another strong effort by taking second and Jimmie Johnson finally made his presence felt in this year’s Chase by finishing third.

The following is a look at my top favorite, contender and longshot to win this Sunday’s race based on odds provided by Bovada.

The Favorite (odd of less than 10/1)

Kevin Harvick has been opened at 9/2 betting odds to take the checkered flag this Sunday at Kansas. He has been shutout in the first three races of the Chase and the No. 4 car last crossed the finish line ahead of the field in a Sprint Cup event all the way back in mid-April at Darlington. This team has spent quite a bit of time at the head of the pack with a total of 1,592 laps led and it did make some noise in the Chase with a fifth-place finish at Chicago and a third-place finish at New Hampshire.


Harvick also came very close to winning at Kansas earlier in the season with a second-place finish after starting on the pole. He adds even more value to these odds as the defending champion of this race.

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

All 12 drivers will get a fresh start in the Chase with the points set at 3000, but Dale Earnhardt Jr. is well aware that he needs to step things up after finishing no better than ninth in the first three events. He has been listed at 10/1 odds to get right back into the mix with a victory this week. You would have to think that as well as the No. 88 car has raced this season it is bound to make some noise this Sunday with time ticking away for its title chances. Dale Jr. did finish eighth in last year’s race and he posted one of his 11 top-five finishes this season at Kansas by taking fifth in the first race here this year.

The Longshot (odds 20/1 or greater)

Things will really begin to tighten-up from here on in making the pickings pretty slim for the longshots in these final seven races. As far as this week’s event you might want to take a closer look at Carl Edwards at 33/1 simply because he has the longest odds of any driver left in the playoffs. The No. 99 car has been a complete non-factor in the Chase so far with three finishes outside the top 10, but Edwards did finish fifth in this race last season and sixth in the first race at Kansas this year.
