2010 Pennsylvania 500 NASCAR Odds Favor Hamlin at Pocono

Denny Hamlin, who is third in the Sprint Cup Standings and tied with Jimmie Johnson for the most wins this year at 5, is the NASCAR betting favorite at online sportsbooks to win Sunday’s Sunoco Red Cross Pennsylvania 500 odds at the famed triangle of Pocono Raceway with a price of +300. Other top choices for Sunday’s race on ESPN include Johnson and Kyle Busch at +550, with Kevin Harvick and Jeff Gordon at +900. Denny Hamlin has already posted a Pocono win earlier this year on June 6 when he took the checkers at the Gillette Fusion ProGluide 500 Presented by Target. Hamlin has 8 top 10 finishes in NASCAR betting this year and an average finish at Pocono of 8.6, with 4 career wins at the Pennsylvania venue to make for one of his very best tracks.

Jimmie Johnson is 4th in the Sprint Cup standings and has 11 top 10 finishes this year. Pocono is also one of his best tracks as he has 2 wins and an average finish position of 9.5. Heading into Pennsylvania 500 odds, Kyle Busch is 6th in the Sprint Cup standings and has 2 wins with 10 top 10 finishes. Pocono has not been kind to Kyle as he has never won there and has an average finish of 19.6. He did have a strong running at Pocono on June 6, however, with a 2nd place finish so perhaps his luck is changing.

Harvick has led the Sprint Cup standings for all of the summer and has 2 wins with 14 top 10 finishes. He has never won at Pocono and has an average finish of 15.1 at the track. He also improved his normal performance there this year with a 4th place finish on June 6th. Gordon is closing in on Harvick in the standings and is now in 2nd place with 11 top 10 finishes but 0 wins. Gordon has done well at Pocono; heading into 2010 Pennsylvania 500 odds, he has 4 wins and an average finish of 10.7 on the track.
