2014 Daytona 500 Odds – Nascar Preview

Swarms of stock car racing fans and enthusiasts will head down to Florida when the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series kicks off NASCAR’s newest season with the biggest race of them all – the Daytona 500. Dubbed as “The Great American Race,” this event will be held at the Daytona International Speedway on February 23. .

Jimmie Johnson has been a force in the racing circuit for years now. He won the 2013 Daytona 500 and first on his list this season will be to defend his title at Daytona Beach in February.

With the way Johnson has been performing, there’s almost zero doubt that he will be the clear favorite to seize the first place spot on the podium. But there are other drivers worth taking a look at and considering placing a wager on.

Let’s take a brief look at Johnson and some of the other drivers participating in the event.

1) Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Daytona 500 Odds: TBA

2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship Odds: +1,500

Earnhardt doesn’t have any race wins from last year, but that’s not to say he had a lackluster 2013 campaign. Earnhardt finished inside the top ten 22 times in 2013. It was his most in nine years (2004).

2) Kyle Busch

Daytona 500 Odds: TBA

2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship Odds: +600

Kyle Busch, NASCAR, Daytona 500

The younger Busch has finished only twice inside the Top 5 of the Daytona 500 in the nine times he’s participated in the event. Last year, he finished just 34th in the Great Race, but took the checkered flag four times in other races, including the AdvoCare 500 in Atlanta.

3) Kevin Harvick

Daytona 500 Odds: TBA

2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship Odds: +1,800

Harvick started in third place in last year’s Daytona 500 but ended up finishing second to last (42nd). A change of racing outfit may pave the way for an improved season, for Harvick is now under Stewart-Haas Racing after driving 16 seasons for Childress Racing.

4) Danica Patrick

Daytona 500 Odds: TBA

2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship Odds: +20,000

Right in the opening race of the 2013 season, Patrick appeared to be more of a serious threat than a racing novelty after placing eighth in the Daytona 500. Patrick is a racer to watch in this year’s Great Race.

5) Jimmie Johnson

Daytona 500 Odds: TBA

2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship Odds: +175

The yardstick of stock car racing success today is none other than Johnson. Aside from winning the Daytona 500 last year, Johnson was also the 2013 series champion. The prized driver of Chevrolet has six NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship titles and will be gunning for his seventh beginning at Daytona Beach, where he hopes to win his third career Daytona 500.
