The Dragon Energy NASCAR Cup Series will shift into overdrive at Dover International Speedway in Delaware on Sunday and Kyle Busch tops the oddsboard for the fourth time in the past five races to win the AAA 400 Drive for Autism.
Busch is listed at +350 in 5Dimes followed closely by Kyle Larson and Kevin Harvick in +550, Martin Truex Jr. in +600, Jimmie Johnson in +750, Chase Elliott in +850, Denny Hamlin, Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano in +1650, and Erik Jones at +2250 to round out the top 10.
Can Jimmie Johnson get his first win of this season?
It’s been a storied career for Jimmie Johnson, who may have experienced the most dominant stretch a driver has ever had from 2006 to 2016 if he won seven NASCAR Cup championships. However, this season it has been an uphill struggle for No. 48 as he has only managed two top-10 endings through 10 races.
That being said, his album cannot be denied when looking at his background at Dover International Speedway as he has taken the checkered flag in this race at four of the previous six years, such as in 2017. At +750, the value might not be there but if you are into historical trends, the evidence is in the results in regards to Johnson’s chances.
The Cup Championship is between Busch and everybody else When there are still a lot of races left to go, it’s clear oddsmakers think Kyle Busch will be in contention every Sunday. Busch has been at the top five at the chances for the previous five races and can be at the top spot on the odds table for the AAA 400 Drive for Autism.
He may not provide much value at +350 but he has won at this track before (2008 and 2010). He’s eight top-10 finishes this year including a stretch of three consecutive wins before placing 13th at Talladega last weekend. He has the lead in the Dragon Energy NASCAR Cup standings after 10 races with 447 points.
