Kobalt Tools 500 Odds NASCAR Predictions Phoenix International Raceway

Phoenix International Raceway is the scene for NASCAR predictions this weekend as Kobalt Tools 500 odds will take place on ESPN with a starting time on Sunday at 3:00pm EST. The race is the next to last on the schedule as the circuit will wrap up the Sprint Cup chase next week at Homestead, Florida. Phoenix International Raceway is a 1 mile tri-oval race track. Denny Hamlin holds a 33-point lead over Jimmie Johnson in the Sprint Cup standings heading into NASCAR predictions on Sunday and is listed as a 11/2 betting favorite in NASCAR predictions while Johnson is 7/2.

Johnson is gunning for his fifth consecutive title and fired his pit crew in the middle of last week’s race as he replaced the group with teammate Jeff Gordon’s crew and will keep that arrangement for the remainder of the schedule. Kevin Harvick is in third place just 59 points behind Hamlin heading into 2010 Kobalt Tools 500 odds with Carl Edwards fourth, Matt Kenseth fifth, and Jeff Gordon sixth. It is interesting to note that Edwards, Kenseth and Gordon are all winless this year despite their high standings. Rounding out the top 12 in the chase is Kyle Busch, Tony Stewart, Greg Biffle, Clint Bowyer, Kurt Busch, and Jeff Burton.

Online sportsbooks opened with Johnson as a 7/2 favorite in NASCAR predictions to win the Kobalt Tools 500. Hamlin was the second choice at 11/2 with Kyle Busch at 7/1 and Harvick at 11/1. Gordon and Stewart opened at 18/1, with Biffle 11/1 and Edwards 6-1, Kenseth 25/1, Kurt Busch 9/1, Bowyer at 35/1 and Burton was a 35/1 choice. Johnson makes for a dangerous favorite in Kobalt Tools 500 predictions as he is highly motivated, proven, and driving with anger after his pit crew let him down last week. Johnson has a phenomenal record at Phoenix with 4 wins and an average career finish of 4.9. Bet Jimmie Johnson 7/2 as a favorite to win the 2010 Kobalt Tools 500 odds for Sunday’s race from Phoenix International Raceway in Arizona on ESPN.
