NASCAR IRWIN Tools Night Race Las Vegas Odds: Kyle Busch Favorite

Kyle Busch is pegged as the favorite on the NASCAR Las Vegas Odds to do something he desperately needs to do on Saturday night, pick up the checkered flag in the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Busch currently sits below the cut-off line to make NASCAR's Chase for the Sprint Cup, with time quickly running out for the series' drivers to clinch their berths for the playoffs.
That means Busch will give his Chase chances a real shot in the arm with his second win of the season on Saturday night – he also won at Richmond back in April. A second victory would push Busch into a Wild Card berth for the Chase.
And with a history of winning at Bristol, Busch sits as the 5/1 favorite on the NASCAR Las Vegas Odds at Bovada Sportsbook to visit Victory Lane on Saturday night. Busch has won five Cup races at Bristol in his career, first in 2007, then twice in 2009, and then again in both 2010 and 2011.
Brad Keselowski, though, has crossed the finish line in first place each of the last two times that the drivers of the Sprint Cup Series hit the pavement at Bristol, and he's just behind Busch at 7/1 odds to win on Saturday. Keselowski, who sits fifth in the current driver standings, won at Bristol back in March and in the Irwin Tools Night Race last August.
Jimmie Johnson follows those top favorites at 17/2 odds to take the checkered flag on Saturday, with Matt Kenseth at 10/1, and each of Carl Edwards, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Greg Biffle, Jeff Burton and Jeff Gordon at 12/1. Gordon is also below the Chase cut-off line right now and could use a second victory this season to get him back into title contention.
Denny Hamlin (15/1), Kasey Kahne (16/1) and Tony Stewart (16/1) round out the second tier of contenders for Saturday, with Kevin Harvick at 20/1, and Clint Bowyer, Martin Truex Jr. and Ryan Newman all at 25/1.
