Sprint Cup Betting: Shelby 427 Odds

The NASCAR Sprint Cup season is now well underway and continues its Western swing into Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the Shelby 427. As NASCAR fans are likely to know, this is the first year that the NASCAR event has been run under the title of the ‘Shelby 427’. In a year where the economy is in collapse and NASCAR betting events are scrambling for sponsors, Carol Shelby generously agreed to put up the cash so fans could continue to look forward to NASCAR racing in Las Vegas.

[Jimmie Johnson and his Lowe's No. 48 Chevrolet Impala is the race favorite for Sunday's Shelby 427 NASCAR Sprint Cup Race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. According to oddsmakers at SBGglobal.com, Johnson is the favorite at +300 odds.]

There’s plenty of intrigue leading up to this Vegas-based NASCAR Sprint Cup event. The track is a rare ‘D’ shaped oval super speedway with 20 degree banking which allows for a very fast race, but also just enough curve to create some interesting things for the fans. Well prepared teams with the fastest cars usually separate themselves from the rest of the pack here, unlike other short track events where luck and crashes allow slower cars to hang with the leaders.

Two drivers have dominated this Sprint Cup event over the past few years. Not surprisingly three-time NASCAR champ Jimmie Johnson won the event three straight times between 2005 and 2007. Matt Kenseth has also fared well winning the NASCAR betting event in back to back years in 2003 and 04.

However, last year Carl Edwards crossed the finish line first and claimed his first Sprint Cup win at Las Vegas. Watch for Johnson and Edwards to battle again for the victory here, in race that could be very symbolic of the overall battle for the NASCAR betting title in 2009. Edwards and Johnson are the favorites for the bet on NASCAR driving title this season and the show down in the Shelby 427 should be a perfect battlefield for the two would be champs.
