As you will see from the list, Jimmie Johnson and Brad Keselowski are co-favorites for the win. In addition to the drivers odds, I'm also listing the number of times each driver has won this race in the past, how many wins each driver has over the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and how many wins each driver has so far this season.
If, as a bettor, you believe in past performances as a good indicator for future wins, this year's Brickyard 400 is perfect for you. Three of the past four winners of the Brickyard 400 are listed below at 30 to 1 or higher odds for this year's race.
NASCAR odds 2014 Brickyard 400, Jimmie Johnson and Brad Keselowski co-favorites
T-1. Jimmie Johnson - 5 to 1
Jimmie Johnson has already won this race four times (2006, 2008, 2009, 2012). So it's no surprise that he is co-favorite to win it again in 2014 at 5 to 1 odds. After a slow start this season, Jimmie Johnson has picked it up with wins at Charlotte, Dover, and Michigan.
T-2. Brad Keselowki - 5 to 1
Even though he has never won this race, Brad Keselowski is co-favorite at 5 to 1 odds in 2014 for the Brickyard 400. That's probably because Brad Keselowski won the last NASCAR race at New Hampshire two weeks ago. Keselowski also has wins at Kentucky and Las Vegas this year.
T-3. Kevin Harvick - 8 to 1
Kevin Harvick won this race back in 2003. Harvick also has wins at Phoenix and Darlington in 2014.
T-3. Jeff Gordon - 8 to 1
Like Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon has four wins in this race, but his last win was in 2004. Gordon's lone win this season was at Kansas City. Is Ingrid Vendebosch the hottest wife in NASCAR?
T-5. Dale Earnhardt, Jr. - 10 to 1
Dale Earnhardt, Jr has yet to win the Brickyard 400, but he has wins at Daytona and Pocono in 2014. He also has arguably the hottest girlfriend in NASCAR.
