The following is a list of the odds for NASCAR drivers to win the 2014 Bojangles Southern 500, which will be run this Saturday night, April 12, 2014, at Darlington Raceway in Darlington, South Carolina.
As you will see below, Jimmie Johnson is favored to win the Bojangles Southern 500, a race he has already won twice in his career. But Jimmie Johnson is still winless in 2014, after being Sprint Cup champion last year.
Did anybody have Joey Logano to win the Duck Commander 500 last week in Texas at 8 to 1 odds? Logano was the seventh different NASCAR driver to win the first seven races so far in 2014. If Jimmie Johnson wins this week, he will be the eighth different driver in eight weeks.
NASCAR odds for 2014 Bojangles Southern 500, Jimmie Johnson favored

Kyle Busch, who won the Auto Club 400 in March, is 7 to 1 odds in the Bojangles Southern 500, a race he won in 2008.
