2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Title Future Odds and Predictions

Sprint Cup Futures Update

NASCAR’s Sprint Cup series just completed its 11th point race of the season with the running of the Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway last Saturday night making it a great time to take a closer look at the current odds to win this season’s Sprint Cup title.

Odds: Bovada

Jimmie Johnson is the clear favorite at 5/2 to add a sixth title to his storied racing career and for good reason. He is currently first in the Sprint Cup point standings with 423 points after posting two victories and four other top-five finishes this year. Johnson has finished out of the top 10 just twice in the first 11 races.

The second-favorite at 6/1 is Matt Kenseth even after getting docked points for an engine part infraction. He has quickly made up that ground with three victories including one in last week’s race. He is currently third in the standings with 364 points.

There are three drivers listed at 8/1 to win this year’s title starting with the defending 2012 champion Brad Keselowski. He has yet to win a race this season, but on the strength of four top-five finishes he is currently seventh place in the standings and 97 points out of the lead.

Kyle Busch is another driver listed at 8/1 and after a disappointing 2012 campaign where he did not even make it into the Chase, he is in eighth place in the standings with 325 points. Busch won two races in the span of three weeks earlier this season and has three other top-five finishes.

The final driver at 8/1 to win it all is Kasey Kahne. He is a guy that you have to watch every week as you just never know when it will be his turn to win. He has a victory at Bristol this season under his belt as well as three more top-five finishes that have him ranked sixth in the standings with 326 points. [ad-8757089]

Carl Edwards came dangerously close to winning the Sprint Cup title in 2011 but faded into the field last season. He has returned to form with a win at Phoenix earlier in the year and is in second place in the current standings with 379 points after posting a total of five top-five finishes this season. He has been opened at 10/1 to win this year’s title.

The two drivers at 12/1 to win the title are Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Clint Bowyer. Dale Jr. has been extremely competitive all season long with seven top-10 finishes in 11 races to hold down the fourth spot in the standings with 359 points, but somewhere along the line he is going to have to start winning some races to help close the gap between him and the lead.

Bowyer is another one of those drivers that is forever hanging around the front of the pack week after week. He has made his way to fifth place in the standings on the strength of four top-five finishes. He is another driver that is going to have to start winning races as well to have a legitimate shot at competing for the title.

NASCAR Sprint Cup Title Prediction

While the value in the odds at 5/2 is not that great, this is Jimmie Johnson’s title to lose. It has been two years since he ran off a string of five-straight Cup Championships and wants that sixth title in the worst way. Kenseth and Edwards will keep the No.48 car on its toes all the way to Homestead, but in the end the Sprint Cup will be back in Johnson’s possession.
