According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Jimmie Johnson is the clear favorite to win, as he has 2/1 odds while Jeff Gordon has been given 5/1 odds.

Here are our predictions for this weekend’s race.

Jeff Gordon 5/1

Gordon hasn’t found his way to the checkered flag very often, but if there is a time it is going to happen, it is at Martinsville. Oddsmakers seem to agree, giving him 5/1 odds. He is an eight-time winner at this track and has been racing well as of late, sitting third in the point standings. Gordon’s average finish at Martinsville is an impressive 6.8 and his driver rating is 121.1, second only to Jimmie Johnson.

Brad Keselowski 8/1

Keselowski has been pretty strong to start 2014. He seems to be in position to win every week. Last week he was in good shape until cutting a tire late in the race. Despite never winning at Martinsville, this is a track he has some strong history in, averaging a finish of 10.4 while having an 89.2 driver rating. For a driver that had some horrible runs early in his career, those numbers are strong thanks to recent performances.

Live Long Shot

Jamie McMurray 50/1

McMurray is quietly having a nice start to his season as he finds himself 12th in the point standings with a pair of top 10s. He is seeking his first win at Martinsville, but has one top 5 and 12 top 10s at this track. His average finish there is 16.2 and his driver rating is 84.2. With 50/1 odds, you are obviously taking a chance with McMurray, but his 12 top 10s show he is always in the hunt at this track. He just needs to make a good decision on strategy, and he can find himself winning, and get you a massive pay day.
