NASCAR betting odds for drivers to win the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway

So it comes down to this. The last race of this long NASCAR season. After 35 points spending races, the last 4 drivers that will race for the championship Sunday happen to be determined.

Since the elimination format to decide a champion was introduced two years back the champion has even won the race. Odds are then that the winner of this race Sunday will also wear the Cup crown. Others could triumph, but three of those last five race winners dating back to Tony Stewart in 2011, also have won the title, so don’t be surprised if the motorist celebrating a race triumph in victory lane Sunday, can also be celebrating his championship.

Here’s how it shakes out one of the four finalists for Sunday’s 36th race of this year for your gambling or fantasy racing leagues. Driver Ratings are accumulated from 2005-2016 races (23 total) among active drivers in Phoenix. The Driver Rating is a number based on a formula developed by NASCAR which combines“loop data“ components such as average running position, average speed under green, variety of fastest laps, and other stats. There’s a maximum of 150 points that a driver can earn for every race. The chances are present as of Wednesday.

1. Carl Edwards (7-1). Edwards has two wins here and the highest driver evaluation among the 4, 109.4. The only driver among the Championship 4 having multiple wins at Homestead, Edwards still has memories of losing the race, and the name, to Tony Stewart in 2011. Section of the Joe Gibbs Racing team, Edwards will be seeking salvation Sunday, and he might just get it.

2. Jimmie Johnson (7-2). Homestead is one of those very few tracks in NASCAR that Johnson hasn’t won at. He runs well here though and gets the 2nd greatest driver rating of this 4, 96.7. Johnson will be looking to make history Sunday with a seventh title. When he brings his“A“ game and may avoid some of the miscues the team has suffered this year occasionally, Johnson could pull it off.

3. Kyle Busch (5-1). Busch is looking to defend his name, earned by a win at Homestead this past year. He has the third highest driver evaluation, 95.5. However he hardly made the Championship 4, also has struggled at times. However, with one final race and an opportunity to bring another name, and Joe Gibbs rebounds Busch could be able to add another triumph, and another title.

4. Joey Logano (7-1). Logano is perhaps the underdog among the Championship 4. He’s never won at Homestead, gets the lowest motorist evaluation among the field, 83.5. But Logano finished fourth here last year and led the second most laps in the race, 72. Logano was surprising at times this year and he could surely be a surprise Sunday by winning his first Cup title.

OTHERS: There will be a total of 36 other drivers trying to acquire Sunday. Chief among them, Matt Kenseth (12-1). Kenseth has the 2nd highest driver rating among the area, 108.4, and won here in 2007. Coming off a disappointing finish at Phoenix last week, Kenseth will be seeking to make a strong statement. Kevin Harvick (6-1) was also disappointed a week as he failed to make the cut for the first time because the removal format started. He won the raceand the title in 2014, has the fifth best driver rating, 104.3, and could add another win for his Homestead resume Sunday.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Ford EcoBoost 400 in Homestead-Miami Speedway will be conducted on Sunday, November 20. Live coverage will be on NBC beginning at 2:00 p.m. ET using the green flag coming just after 2:30 p.m. ET.
