NASCAR Betting – Look for Hamlin in Victory Lane at Las Vegas

by on June 19, 2013


NASCAR Las Vegas odds have the usual suspects near the top of the sportsbook list for this Sunday’s Sprint Cup race, the Shelby 427 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Carl Edwards is the defending race-winner here, but online sports betting players can expect an exciting race from the time the green flag is dropped.

Edwards is a co-favorite with Jimmie Johnson this Sunday with NASCAR Las Vegas odds of +500, which is fitting as these two have won the last four races here. Edwards broke Johnson’s three-year streak in 2008, but his No.99 car failed the post-race inspection, which earned he and his team a 100-point penalty as well as a six-week suspension for his crew chief. Much was made about this penalty, as Johnson went on beat Edwards by 69 points to win his third straight title.

Two historic drivers are next, as Matt Kenseth has NASCAR Las Vegas odds of +550, while Kyle Busch is listed at +600. Kenseth is trying to become the first driver to win three consecutive races to start the season, while Busch made history last week when he dominated the Truck and Nationwide races to become the first man to win two major-series races in the same day. Kenseth’s 9.0 finishing average in Vegas is second among active drivers, and he won back-to-back races here in 2003 and 2004. Busch has three top-10s in five trips to his hometown track.

Jeff Gordon can’t be counted out with NASCAR Las Vegas odds of +750, and he won here in 2001. The No.24 team is off to a great start, and he has a solid 14.7 finishing average and five top-5s in 10 trips to Vegas.

However, your NASCAR betting pick should be Denny Hamlin, whose 7.3 finishing average is the best among active drivers, and he hasn’t not finished outside the top ten in three Vegas races. Hamlin’s ran well to start the year, and he looks more relaxed as the “senior” JGR driver at 28 years old. Plus, with NASCAR Las Vegas odds of +1600, he’s a great value pick.
