Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Odds

Sprint Cup drivers will add right turns to their repertoire this weekend with the first road course race of the season, the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Infineon Raceway.

Last season at Infineon Jimmie Johnson won his first road course race. If he can repeat his visit to Victory Lane this weekend he'll do it as an 8/1 underdog at Bovada. Johnson has three Top-5 finishes in his last seven starts at Infineon, and before finishing well back in 27th last week at Michigan he had posted back-to-back Top-10 finishes.

The favorite in this weekend's race may be a surprise to casual fans. On the NASCAR odds at Bovada Marcos Ambrose in the Toyota/Save Mart 350 favorite at 9/2. Ambrose hasn't won a race this season and he only has four Top-10 finishes in 15 starts, leaving him in 21st place in the driver standings. Ambrose has a great history on road courses though, which is the main reason for his high odds at Bovada. In three career starts at Infineon Ambrose has finished sixth, third, and 42nd, but in the race he finished 42nd he was running in the Top 5 before engine trouble ended his day early. At Watkins Glen, NASCAR's other road course, Ambrose has finished in the Top 3 in all of his starts.

Following Ambrose on the NASCAR odds at Bovada are Jeff Gordon and Juan Pablo Montoya, both at 15/2. Gordon leads all active driver in wins at Infineon with five and he last won there in 2006. Gordon looks like a solid pick this weekend with two wins already under his belt this season, and he's finished in the Top 10 in his last five starts at Infineon.

Montoya is one of the most experienced drivers in NASCAR on road courses due to his history in IndyCar and Formula 1. Montoya won his debut at Infineon in 2007, and he has finished in the Top 10 in every race on the track since that season. If you include the Watkins Glen races Montoya has finished in the Top 10 in seven of his eight starts on road courses.

A road course race also means a number of teams employing “road course ringers” this weekend. The ringer receiving the best odds at Bovada this weekend is Boris Said at 22/1. A few other ringers expected to start this weekend include Andy Pilgrim (150/1), Tomy Drissi (150/1), Tony Ave (200/1), Brian Simo (250/1), and P.J. Jones (250/1).
