NASCAR Betting – Who To Avoid At Bristol

Bristol Motor Speedway Beting OddsWhen making your March Madness predictions, you aim to find some darkhorses, and you usually do that in NASCAR as well. But for this week’s race, the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway, we’ll take a look at some good drivers who offer long odds, but they’re long for a reason.

NASCAR Betting – Sunday, March 21, 2:00 PM ET

Jimmie Johnson (+1000)

It’s strange to see the four-time defending champion on this list, but Bristol has been kryptonite to “Superman” over his career. Johnson has never won at Bristol, and his 16.6 average in 16 races is one of his worst. He may be getting the hang of it, as the No.48 driver finished eighth in this event, and then 12th at the summer race. But if you had to not bet on Jimmie Johnson at one place, it’s here.

Tony Stewart (+1400)

Stewart has never like the spring race at Bristol with just one top-10 in 11 tries, and he came in 17th last year. The No.14 driver has been relatively quiet to start the season with two top-10s, and he is coming off a 13th-place run at Atlanta, but at no point has he looked like winning a race so far in 2010.

Kasey Kahne (+1600)

Kahne finished fifth in last year’s event, but then he fell to 28th in the summer, so it’s hit-and-miss with the No.9 driver. Kahne has never been known for his ability on short tracks and road courses, although he did win at Infineon last year. We’ll need to see some consistency from Kahne on short tracks before we go to him in our sports betting picks.

Carl Edwards (+1600)

It’s been a long week for the No.99 driver, and we’re betting management at Roush-Fenway just want to drop the green flag at Bristol. Edwards is on a three-race probation after his wreck of Brad Keselowski, and that may rein in his aggressiveness. Edwards usually isn’t good at Bristol until the summer, with just one top-10 in five spring races, and with the week he’s had, he’s not a smart play here.

Ryan Newman (+2200)

Newman can’t afford another bad week, as he’s 29th in points and in danger of falling out of the top 35, which means he’ll have to qualify on speed. That shouldn’t be a problem for Newman, who got the nickname “Rocketman” because of his qualifying skill. However, he’s won two poles here in eight spring races with a 7.5 qualifying average with second to just Jeff Gordon, but his finishing average is 23.0. If he were a March Madness betting pick, he would be Texas: hot out of the blocks, but stumble at the finish.
