2012 Coke Zero 400 Betting Odds & Picks

The 2012 Coke Zero 400 is this Saturday at the Daytona International Speedway. Drivers will be using restrictor plates this week in the race and that means predicting the winner is even more difficult. Your best bet is to pick a few drivers that have done well recently using restrictor plates and that’s what we’ve gone with in the 2012 Coke Zero 400.

Outright winner odds have now been released by most bookmakers. Bet365 Mobile offers odds on NASCAR races early in the week during the season and we highly recommend them for our international visitors. Americans can bet on NASCAR races using the BetOnline Mobile app, as they’ve released their odds already. Continue below to read the odds and our best bets.

2012 Coke Zero 400 Best Bets

Matt Kenseth at 12/1 odds has to be an early favourite to win the race this weekend. Kenseth won the Daytona 500 this year and he also finished in 3rd place at Talladega, which is the other track that requires the use of restrictor plates. Kenseth can become the 1st driver since 1984 to win both of the Sprint Cup Series races at Daytona. At 12/1 Kenseth has made it on my short list.

Another driver you have to consider this weekend is Brad Keselowski at 12/1. Keselowski is only 10th in points and still 96 points behind the leader Kenseth for the Sprint Cup Championship, but Keselowski has 3 wins on the season. He won at Talladega and he just won last week in Kentucky at the Quaker State 400. Brad was a non-factor in the Daytona 500 because of an accident.

Jimmie Johnson is an early favourite to win the 2012 Coke Zero 400 along with Earnhardt Jr. Johnson has struggled in races with the restrictor plate this season (Accident at Daytona & Engine Issues at Talladega) and I’d avoid betting him. Earnhardt Jr. is the better bet when compared to Johnson. Earnhardt Jr. finished in 9th place at Talladega and 2nd place at Daytona earlier in 2012.

Right now Kyle Busch and Kasey Kahne are the two wild card drivers in the Race to the Chase. Kyle Busch finished 2nd earlier this year at Talladega with the restrictor plate and he finished back in 17th place at Daytona. Busch may be a T5 contender, but I don’t think he’s going to win the race. Kahne did well at Talladega (4th) as well, but struggled at Daytona earlier this year.

I think Kasey Kahne and Kyle Busch may have some value in the T5 markets this weekend, but I wouldn’t bet on them to win the race this weekend. Some of the drivers at the bottom of our odds list may have some T10 value as well this weekend. McMurray and Logano can both compete this weekend and it wouldn’t surprise me if both were T10 finishers at Daytona.

• Matt Kenseth 12/1 for 2 units
• Brad Keselowski 12/1 for 1 unit
