Looking back at last Sunday’s Sprint Cup race in Charlotte, Carl Edwards stunned the field at longer odds with his first victory of the season.

The top three was rounded-out by Greg Biffle taking second and Dale Earnhardt Jr. adding yet another strong run to this season’s resume by finishing third.

The following is a look at my top favorite, contender and longshot to win this Sunday’s Fed Ex 400 based on betting odds provided by

The Favorite (odd of less than 10/1)

It has been a back-and forth affair between Kevin Harvick and Jimmie Johnson as the top two favorites for almost every race and this week they are both listed at +350 odds to win.

You probably cannot go wrong with either pick, but I am leaning towards Johnson and the No. 48 car to post a much better run at Dover after falling all the way to 40th place at Charlotte.

The last time this team finished that bad this season (35th place at Martinsville) it came back the following week and won.

The main reason I am going with Johnson is his past performance at the Monster Mile which just so happens to include a victory in this event last season.

The Contender (odds from 10/1 to 19/1)

Joey Logano started this season on a high note with a victory at Daytona and since that point as the driver of the No. 22 car he has been a factor in almost every race he has run with a top-five finish in half of the first 12 Sprint Cup point races.

This team is sitting in third place in the standings with a total of 407 points and in solid shape to earn a spot in this year’s Chase.

Logano is still searching for his first career Sprint Cup victory at this track, but what adds some great value to his +1000 betting odds to win this week is a string of six-straight finishes at Dover inside the top 10.

The Longshot (odds 20/1 or greater)

I may be reaching a bit with this pick, but I am going with Kasey Kahne at +2000 as this week’s top longshot.

The No. 4 car has basically been a non-factor this season with just one top-five finish (fourth at Phoenix), but Kahne is still a proven commodity when it comes to winning Sprint Cup races. He has posted five victories over the course of the past three seasons so you never know when it might be his week.

The main reason for such long odds on a quality driver such as Kahne is his recent record at Dover. He has not finished better than 13th in his last five trips around this track.
