The following is a list of the driver odds to win the 2014 Pure Michigan 400, which is taking place on Sunday, August 17, 2014, at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan. Race time is 1:00 pm, and the race is on TV on ESPN.

As you can see below, Jimmie Johnson is the slight favorite to win the 2014 Pure Michigan 400. In addition to giving the drivers odds, I'm also listing how many times each driver has won this race, won at Michigan International Speedway, and how many wins each driver has on the season.

Tony Stewart is listed here, but it's still very uncertain if he will drive this week or not. If Tony Stewart does not drive this week, whoever does drive the #14 car will become part of the field, which is 75 to 1 odds.
