Kyle Busch and Jimmie Johnson are the oddsmakers' favorites to win the title as the Chase for the Sprint Cup gets going this weekend at Chicagoland Speedway.

Busch, who has won four races this season to go along with 16 Top-10 results in 26 events, is the 3/1 favorite at Bovada to win the Sprint Cup title, putting him just ahead of defending champ Johnson (7/2) on that odds board. Johnson has finished in the Top 10 a series-high 17 times this season, but only has one victory; that has him nine points back of leader Busch in the reset Sprint Cup standings.

Jeff Gordon is next at Bovada at 5/1 odds to win the Sprint Cup over the next two months, while Carl Edwards and Kevin Harvick both sit at 13/2 odds to win. Harvick is tied with Busch at four wins on the season to go along with 13 Top-10 results through 26 races. Gordon is third on the circuit with three wins on the season.

Matt Kenseth (10/1), Kurt Busch (11/1), Brad Keselowski (12/1), and Denny Hamlin (16/1) round out the middle tier of contenders for the Cup title at Bovada, with Tony Stewart at 18/1, Dale Earnhardt Jr. at 20/1, and Ryan Newman at 25/1. Stewart and Earnhardt Jr. are the only Chase drivers with zero wins so far in 2011.

Odds to Win 2011 Sprint Cup Championship at Bovada as of September 12:

Kyle Busch 3/1
Jimmie Johnson 7/2
Jeff Gordon 5/1

Kurt Busch 11/1
Brad Keselowski 12/1

-------------------------------

Carl Edwards, Kyle Busch, and Jimmie Johnson are on top of the Sprint Cup futures as NASCAR approaches the start of the Chase.

Edwards is the 7/2 championship favorite at the sportsbooks right now, with Busch at 4/1 on that list, and defending-champion Johnson in third at 9/2 odds . . .

With five straight Sprint Cup championships heading into this season is it any surprise that Jimmie Johnson is the favorite on the latest Sprint Cup futures at Bovada?

Johnson began the new Sprint Cup season as the championship favorite and after seven races he still sits on top of the Bovada NASCAR futures at 13/4. In his first seven starts of the season Johnson hasn't posted a win yet, but he has three Top-5 finishes and four Top-10 finishes to sit third in the driver standings. Johnson has been able to win the last five championships by dominating the Chase late in the season. Until another driver finds a way to replicate Johnson's late-season prowess, his reign will continue.

If this is finally the season Johnson's championship streak ends the drivers that appear to have the best shot at stealing his crown are Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch. They both follow Johnson on the latest NASCAR futures at Bovada at 9/2.

Edwards and Busch both have one win and four Top-5 finishes through their first seven races this season, but Edwards holds a slight lead in the driver standings. Edwards' best career result in the Cup standings came in 2008 when he finished as runner-up to Johnson.

Busch has been a fast starter throughout his Sprint Cup career with a number of race wins during the spring and summer part of the season. Busch's best career finish in the Chase came in 2007 when he ended up fifth. To finally win his first championship he'll need to find a way to keep that success going into the fall. Busch has won 20 Sprint Cup races in his career, but only two of those wins came in September or later in the season. If this doesn't change Busch's chances of winning a championship won't increase.

The last driver not named Jimmie Johnson to win the Cup championship was Tony Stewart back in 2005. Stewart is also the only driver that has won titles under the old Cup system and the current Chase model. Stewart has had an up-and-down year on the circuit so far, but if he can find some consistency and avoid the mistakes that have plagued him he could easily challenge for the championship. That makes him an intriguing pick on the current NASCAR futures at 12/1.

-------------------------------

Jimmie Johnson has become arguably the greatest driver of all time with five straight Sprint Cup Championships and at least one sportsbook opened him up with the best Sprint Cup odds in 2011.

Who will win the nascar championship in 2011? Johnson is a +250 in Sprint Cup futures. He won six times last season and he will likely not let down, as he still has to win the Sprint Cup Championship two more times to catch up with Dale Earnhardt and Richard Petty, who each have 7 titles.

Johnson's teammate Jeff Gordon finished 10th last season and has good odds at +1000 to win his first Sprint Cup title since 2001 and fifth overall.

Bovada has Denny Hamlin and Carl Edwards at +600 to win the Sprint Cup title this year. Last season Hamlin finished second only 39 points behind Johnson, but Edwards may be the driver to throw some money on.

He finished last season on fire winning the last two races while Hamlin had the title in his sights, but floundered under the pressure.

How about Kevin Harvick or Kyle Busch, who are both at +800 at 5Dimes, for knocking Johnson off his perch? Sure, Busch had 13 series wins last season, but he faded late in the season with no top-5 finishes in the last 4 races.

The smart money at these odds is on Harvick, who led NASCAR in regular season points as well as posting the best average finish in the Chase for the Sprint Cup of any driver even better than Johnson.

Along with Gordon, who still has a huge fan base, Greg Biffle is also at +1000 at most shops. He will try, once again, to become the first driver in the history of NASCAR to win championships in all three of the sanctioning body's top divisions.

He needs to have a good car and finish better, as even though he won the third to last race of the season he did not finish in the top-15 in the last two.

Want some drivers with long betting odds to win the Sprint Cup Championship that may have a chance? How about Dale Earnhardt Jr., who Bovada has at +5000? He did not win last season and finished 21st overall, but he comes into the 2011 season hungry and he will be dangerous.

Tony Stewart (+1200) and Ryan Newman (+5000) are both Stewart Haas drivers, which was a team that had a great season in 2010 and has a lot of expectations in 2011.

Here are the Sprint Cup odds at Sports Interaction to win this season's Sprint Cup Title as of January 12, 2011:

Jimmie Johnson  +250
