NASCAR Betting Online: If you're looking for the best advice for NASCAR odds, you've certainly come to the right place. Here at Bookmaker sportsbook, we're previewing the Hollywood Casino 400, which will be held on Sunday, October 6th, 2013 at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas, featuring Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth, Clint Bowyer and Kevin Harvick.
Three active drivers are tied for the most career wins at the Hollywood Casino 400 and will try to take the lead with career win No. 3 on Sunday, October 6th, 2013 at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas. Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon and Greg Biffle have each won here two times and Johnson especially should be among the favorites this year in NASCAR odds.
Johnson, the five-time Sprint Cup champion, is in first place overall this season with 837 points. He first won the Hollywood Casino 400 in 2008 and doubled up in 2011. Johnson has four victories this year, so combining that with the success he's had on this course may add up to make him the favorite. Gordon's victories here both came more than a decade ago, as he won back-to-back races in 2001 and 2002. Gordon is on the back end of his career but has done well this season, as he is in 11th place. He will likely be a longshot to win a third Hollywood Casino 400 but at least has a chance if he puts together a nice race. Greg Biffle sits in ninth place and won here in 2007 and 2010. Tony Stewart is another racer who has two career victories in this race, but is injured and won't be participating this year.
Clint Bowyer is currently in second place in the Sprint Cup standings behind Johnson with 809 points, followed by Kevin Harvick and Carl Edwards, who are tied for third with 795 points apiece. Kyle Busch rounds out the top-5 with 786 points. Matt Kenseth leads the circuit with five wins on the season and is the defending champion, so he is another legitimate contender at the Hollywood Casino 400 in NASCAR odds.

How to bet on Nascar Hollywood Casino 400
The odds of a driver to win the Hollywood Casino 400 will generally look something like:
- Jeff Gordon + 200
- Mark Martin + 250
- Jeff Burton + 300
- Bill Elliott + 700
- Robby Gordon + 700
- Field + 500
These betting odds will be lower when betting on a driver to finish in the top three, as the sportsbook must pay off three different winning bets.
A player would have to bet $10 to win $20 that Jeff Gordon will win the Hollywood Casino 400, while the bettor wagering on Bill Elliott stands to win $70 on their $10 wager.
Another commonly placed bet in NASCAR is head-to-head finish between two drivers. With this bet, a player doesn't really care what place the driver finishes in, as long as the driver finishes higher than the other driver.
A head-to-head betting line for the Hollywood Casino 400 will look something like:
- Mark Martin - 130 Jeff Burton + 110
In this bet, players wagering on Martin to finish higher than Burton will be asked to risk $13 to win $10, while bettors believing that Burton will finish higher than Martin will bet $10 to win $11.
Those familiar with sports betting will have no trouble making the transition to NASCAR wagering, while those new to the world of sports betting should be able to pick up the concepts of NASCAR betting without too much hassle.
2013 Hollywood Casino 400 Winner - Kevin Harvick wins a caution-filled Hollywood Casino 400 from the pole
NASCAR’s Kevin Harvick finished what he started on Sunday.
Harvick, who started from the pole in a Sprint Cup race for the first time since 2006, won the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway for his first victory at the track and his third of the season.
Harvick won on a cool, cloudy afternoon by mastering the new multizone tread tires Goodyear designed for Kansas Speedway’s repaved and rebanked track, and by overcoming a track-record 15 cautions that were a result of everything from duct tape on the track to smoke from a fire on the grass outside the fence at turn one. The race also featured six accidents.
Harvick, in his final season driving for Richard Childress Racing before he moves to Stewart-Haas next season, moved from fourth to third place in the Chase for the Sprint Cup standings, 25 points behind leader Matt Kenseth, who finished 11th. Jimmie Johnson, who finished sixth, closed to within three points of Kenseth.
Harvick led eight times for 138 of the 267 laps, but every time he felt in control of the race, a caution would come out. And not the garden-variety yellow flag, but cautions for bizarre reasons.
2012 Hollywood Casino 400 Winner - Matt Kenseth wins Hollywood Casino 400 wreckfest
Fans who came to Kansas Speedway on Sunday thought they were attending a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.
Instead, they witnessed the latest episode of "Survivor."
Matt Kenseth won a wild war of attrition, otherwise known as the Hollywood Casino 400, beating Martin Truex Jr. to the checkered flag by .495 seconds to claim his third victory of the season, his first at Kansas and the 24th of his career.
Paul Menard ran third, followed by polesitter Kasey Kahne and Tony Stewart, who rallied from a 33rd-place starting position and spin on the backstretch during the race.
The slick, new racing surface at the 1.-5 mile track produced a track-record 14 cautions for 66 caution laps, and no one was immune from disaster -- not even a five-time champion.
Jimmie Johnson's quest for a sixth Cup title appeared to have suffered a severe setback on Lap 135, when the No. 48 Chevrolet spun in heavy traffic and backed into the Turn 4 wall. After leading 44 laps, Johnson had just taken a wave-around for a restart on Lap 128, having been trapped a lap down when Aric Almirola smacked the Turn 2 wall, and the resulting caution interrupted a cycle of green-flag pit stops.
2011 Hollywood Casino 400 Winner - Jimmie Johnson Dominates Hollywood Casino 400
The longest winless drought of Jimmie Johnson's career is over. The five-time Sprint Cup champion manhandled the field throughout the day and held off Kasey Kahne over a green-white checker to score his first victory since Talladega in April.
Kahne took second, over Brad Keselowski, Matt Kenseth, and Carl Edwards who suffered through a miserable day before surging late. Kevin Harvick finished sixth, followed by Clint Bowyer, polesitter Greg Biffle, Marcos Ambrose, and Mark Martin.
Johnson had the race well in hand before teammate Jeff Gordon's engine grenaded with only three laps remaining. The motor failure likely ends Gordon's bid for his fifth Sprint Cup title, while Tony Stewart had his second bad finish in a row. This time, he finished 15th after running in the top-five nearly the entire event. A late pit stop dropped Stewart to ninth, while he pitted again under the caution for Gordon's engine failure and slid through his pit stall.
2010 Price Chopper 400 at Kansas - Race Results
Greg Biffle and Jimmie Johnson got exactly what they needed Sunday at Kansas Speedway—Biffle by leaving the field in his dust and Johnson by persevering.
Biffle ran away and hid from the rest of the field in winning the Price Chopper 400—the third race in the Chase—by 7.638 seconds in front of Johnson, who rallied from his 21st starting position to claim the runner-up spot.
