Vegas Odds to Win the Aaron's 312: Kevin Harvick top Favorite at Talladega

by Bovada Sportsbook
Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski, and Kyle Busch are the favorites on the Nationwide Series odds at Bovada Sportsbook as that circuit prepares for the Aaron's 312 at Talladega Superspeedway on Saturday afternoon.
Harvick sat as the 7/2 favorite on the NASCAR betting odds to take the checkered flag at Talladega on Saturday, followed by both Keselowski and Busch at 19/4 odds. Dale Earnhardt Jr. follows behind that top trio at 11/2 to win the Aaron's 312 this weekend.
Those four Sprint Cup Series regulars aren't eligible to collect points for the Nationwide Series standings, but they have found some success on NASCAR's secondary circuit in 2012 – most notably Keselowski, who has four Top-5 finishes in seven Nationwide starts.
Harvick has a pair of Top-5 Nationwide results this season in three starts, and Earnhardt Jr. has one in three starts. Busch has had some trouble on the circuit this season, turning in just one Top-10 finish in his five Nationwide starts so far in 2012. Busch, however, won the Aaron's 312 at Talladega last season; Keselowski won this event back in 2010.
Kurt Busch is listed at 9/1 to win the Aaron's 312 on Saturday, but he might get a little extra attention on the NASCAR betting odds for the race since he won the circuit's event at Richmond last time out. Kurt Busch has two Top-10 finishes in three Nationwide starts.
Elliott Sadler and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. have two wins apiece on the Nationwide Series schedule so far this season, and they're 1-2 in the circuit's standings heading into this weekend's race. Sadler sits at 35/4 to visit Victory Lane, with Stenhouse Jr. at 33/4.
Joey Logano and James Buescher are the other drivers with Nationwide wins this season, and they sit at 9/1 and 17/1 odds at Bovada to win the Aaron's 312 on Saturday. Austin Dillon, third in the standings right now, is then at 15/1, with Danica Patrick back at 50/1.
