NASCAR Betting – Who To Avoid At Richmond

Richmond Betting – Saturday, May 1, 7:30 PM ETWhen looking at Kentucky Derby odds, there is always going to be a couple of horses that you should stay away from, and the concept is the same for NASCAR betting.  Here’s who you should avoid for the Crown Royal 400 this Saturday night at Richmond, and a couple of the names on the list may surprise you. 

Richmond Betting – Saturday, May 1, 7:30 PM ET

Jimmie Johnson (+500): This may be a strange thing, to rule out the favorite who happens to be a four-time defending champion and three-time winner at Richmond, but most of the No.48 driver’s success has come in the summer race as they’re gearing up for the Chase.  Johnson has one win in the spring, but that was just one of two top-10s in eight spring races here.  He did win last year’s summer race, but that was after a 36th-place finish in the spring. 

Kurt Busch (+1200): The older Busch has two top-10s in nine spring races at Richmond, although he wasn’t that far off last year with a 12th-place run.

He’s the type of driver that, if he were a horse, you would be tempted to think that he’s one of the Kentucky Derby contenders, and he even has two straight top-10s.  He won’t win this race, though.  

Juan Pablo Montoya (+2000): Montoya has been all over the place this year, with three top-five finishes, including two in the last three races, but he also has five finishes of 25th or worse.  That sounds about right for him, as he finished 10th in the spring race last year, but 30th in the summer.  

Carl Edwards (+2000): You could look at San Jose’s NHL odds and draw a comparison to Edwards, who hasn’t won since the season finale in 2008, when he won nine races. With all that talent, why isn’t he winning more?  That should change at Richmond, where he has three top-10s in 11 races overall, but two of those have come in five spring races.  The checkered flags will come soon for the No.99 driver, but not on the ¾-mile bullring that is Richmond.   

Kasey Kahne (+2500): Kahne has one foot out of the door at Richard Petty Motorsports, which makes you wonder if he’ll continue to get good equipment.  This is a bad sign because the equipment isn’t all that great to start with, which is why he’s heading to Hendrick.  Kahne does have a win in the Richmond spring race, but that was just one of two top-10s in six spring races here, and he has just one top-10 in his last five races overall.  He wouldn’t be a smart pick in your sports betting book.
