For the second week in a row oddsmakers from online sports betting site Bodog have made Kyle Busch the favorite to win the 2008 Pocono 500.

Bet on the 2008 Pocono 500

In 6 career races at Pocono Kyle Busch is winless and has an average finish of 16.2. Don’t let the stats fool you though, Kyle Busch is hot in 2008 and you can expect him to be a contender Sunday.

Busch will try to complete the trifecta this weekend by racing in all three national NASCAR series which are all being held at different venues. He will attempt to race the Truck series race Friday in Texas, then on to Nashville for the Nationwide series race Saturday and finally back to Pennsylvania for the Pocono 500 Sunday.

Other favorites for Sunday’s race include Busch’s teammate Denny Hamlin who swept the 2006 races at Pocono at 6/1, Roush Racing Driver Carl Edwards who won at Pocono in 2005 at 6.5/1, Tony Stewart and Jimmie Johnson who are also previous winners at 8/1 and finally Dale Earnhardt Jr. also at 8/1.

If you are looking to bet on any of the favorites this weekend you better do it fast, if any of these drivers have decent qualifying efforts their odds will most certainly drop as we approach the the green flag.
