NASCAR Odds: Hollywood Casino 400

Jimmie Johnson is closing in on Brad Keselowski in the Chase for the Sprint Cup standings, and he's the favorite on the NASCAR betting lines at the sportsbooks to win the title this season.

Johnson finished in third place and Keselowski was 11th at last weekend's Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, so Johnson is now just seven points behind Keselowski heading into this week's Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway.

And with Johnson's championship pedigree he's also pegged as the current +175 favorite at TopBet to win the Sprint Cup this fall, followed by Denny Hamlin at +200, and Keselowski at +250.

Hamlin was second at the Bank of America 500, and trails Keselowski by 15 points and Johnson by eight points in the Sprint Cup Series standings. Clint Bowyer, who won that race at Charlotte, is now 28 points behind Keselowski and at +1800 at TopBet to win the Sprint Cup this season.

Hamlin, Johnson, and Keselowski are the last three winners at Kansas Speedway, with Hamlin winning the STP 400 on the track earlier in the season and Johnson and Keselowski visiting Victory Lane there in 2011 events.

Johnson, Greg Biffle, Tony Stewart, and Jeff Gordon are the only Sprint Cup drivers with more than one career win at the venue.
