According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Jimmie Johnson is the favorite having won three of the last five races at Dover. Johnson is also the drive to beat because he's on top of the points list. Last season, Kurt Busch outdueled Johnson at DIS. Busch grabbed the lead from Johnson after a late-race restart. He then held off Johnson in another restart before beating him at the finish by 0.9 seconds for his second win of the season and the 24th of his career.

Kyle Busch 8-1

Kyle Busch won the Monster Mile twice and won the spring 2010 race. Last year in the Dover Chase race he finished sixth and led 46 laps. He's a very aggressive drive which serves him well here. Kyle needs to have the breaks go his way once this year and this is the track that he can take advantage of them if they go his way. He has finished in the top six in four of his last five starts here and has two wins at this track.

Brad Keselowski 10-1

Brad has only run five Sprint Cup races at this track and his best finish is 12th, which he accomplished this June. But he's been on fire since July. Brad ended up 12th here back in June, which is also his best career finish at this track thus far (five career starts). It’s also hard to go against the driver that has finished worse than 9th just once in the past twelve Sprint Cup races and who is 2nd in points.

Long Shot

Marcos Ambrose  60-1

With his 10th-place finish here back in June, that makes it three straight top 10s for Marcos Ambrose at Dover. His 6th place average running position proves that his strong finishes were no fluke. His 113.9 driver rating was the 4th best in the series.
