Updated Sprint Cup Odds

According to oddsmakers at GTBets, Kevin Harvick is the favorite to claim the championship this year, as he has odds of +350 to win. Kyle Busch and Matt Kenseth each have +500 odds to win. All drivers have been reset to 3000 points and the top 8 drivers after the next three races will advance to the next stage. A win automatically advances you to the field of 8.
