Heads up online sportbook betting fans! There are just 6 races to go before the Chase for the Sprint Cup begins, which means that the stakes are raised for every driver in with a shot at landing in the final 16. A lot can change in the standings over the next few weeks, and it all begins at the Pocono Raceway this Sunday, when the drivers start their engines for the Pennsylvania 400.

Nascar Odds for Kyle and Kurt Busch At Pocono
The big story coming into the race has to be the performance of Kyle Busch. He was up against huge odds after missing the first 11 races of the season through injury, but he has made a triumphant return, and has now won 3 races in a row. He will certainly be among the favorites to win again this weekend, but the odds of him winning a fourth straight are stacked heavily against him. There are just too many variables at play to make this a very good bet.
One driver who might well be worth a look is Kyle’s brother, Kurt. He had the pole position the last time out at Pocono, but ended up finishing 5th. He has two previous wins at this track, though, and is a very solid bet. Kevin Harvick is likely to be the driver who gets a lot of the action, despite the fact that he is yet to win at Pocono. He is having an amazing season, though, and is currently sitting atop the driver standings, and deservedly so. You just get the sense that Harvick is ready for a big win, which might well mean breaking his duck at Pocono.
Other Drivers To Look Out For
Jimmie Johnson has not been very good in his last two races, but he is a driver who seldom performs that poorly for extended stretches. This is a track that he really likes, as he has 3 wins there, as well as a ton of top 10 finishes. Expect Johnson to be there or thereabouts when the checkered flag comes out. Dale Earnhardt Jr. is another driver worth a look, especially when you consider that he has won 2 of the last 3 races at Pocono. The one thing that might hold Earnhardt back is the performance of his pit crew, which has not been very good as of late.
Final Betting Thoughts
As is the case every Sunday, there are a bunch of guys who could easily get the win. You can only have one winner on race day, though, so I am going to go with Kurt Busch this weekend.
