NASCAR 2015 Sprint Cup Futures Update - June 17 The Sprint Cup series starts to heat-up with the weather in July as the countdown to this year's Chase is on.
Wins is what gets you in NASCAR's 10-race playoff to the season title and so far 10 different drivers have laid claim to at least one checkered flag through the first 15 point races of the season.
has recently updated its futures odds to win the 2015 Sprint Cup title and it is no big surprise that last year's champion Kevin Harvick still tops that list at betting odds of 350.
He is one of three drivers this season with multiple wins (Las Vegas and Phoenix), but more impressive has been Harvick's consistency driving the No. He also remains at the top of the Sprint Cup standings with a total of 576 points on the strength of 13 top-10 finishes in 15 events.
Long-time NASCAR veteran Jeff Gordon announced that this would be his final fulltime season racing in the Sprint Cup series.
So far the much anticipated farewell tour has not gone as planned with six-straight finishes outside the top five, but this is another driver that you can never count out of this mix given his past ability to guide the No. Gordon laid claim to four checkered flags last season on his way to a sixth-place finish in the final Sprint Cup standings.
Despite the slow start, there is still quite a bit of value in his 700 betting odds to add a fifth racing title to his storied career this time around. and Joey Logano are all next on the list at 800 odds to win this year's title, but I would go with Logano has having the best value in this group.
Keselowski has already won this season at Fontana so it is pretty much a given that he will be in the Chase, but my concern down the stretch is that the 2012 Sprint Cup Champion has made more enemies than friends for his aggressive driving tactics in the past.
He won five times in 2014 and remained in the title hunt right through the final event of the year at Homestead-Miami Speedway. 22 race team picked-up where it left off with Logano's victory in this year's Daytona 500 and it has not finished outside the top 10 in all six point races this season.
NASCAR 2015 Sprint Cup Futures Preseason The start of a new season of NASCAR Sprint Cup racing is right around the corner as the series descends upon fabled Daytona International Speedway for next week's Speed Week and the running of the Daytona 500 on Sunday, Feb.22.
Under NASCAR's new rules which took effect last season, it is all about winning races at the right time of the year when it comes to winning the Sprint Cup title.
With a track record like that it is easy to see while Harvick is a 350 odds-on favorite to successfully defend his title.
One driver that you can never count out of the mix for a title run even under the new rules for the Chase is Jimmie Johnson.
Futures Odds to win NASCAR's 2015 Sprint Cup Title Winning is the name of the game ever since NASCAR overhauled its rules to win the Sprint Cup title with a series of elimination rounds in the 10-race Chase.
