The following is a list of the odds for NASCAR drivers to win the 2014 Oral-B USA 500, which is taking place this Sunday night, August 31, 2014, at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia. Race coverage begins at 7:30 pm on TV on ESPN.
Based upon the drivers odds, the Oral-B USA 500 is going to be a wide-open race in 2014. Led by Jimmie Johnson, four drivers are co-favorites this week to win. The highest odds you can get this week on any driver is 100 to 1.
In addition to the odds, I’m also listing how many times each driver has won the Oral-B USA 500, how many wins each driver has at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, and how many wins each driver has so far in 2014.
Good luck to all bettors and drivers this week and happy Labor Day to all. I’m planning on cracking open a few cold ones and watching a great race this Sunday night.
