The BiGD0GG Top 5 Driver List (and I'm not talking all-time, I'm talking right here and right now)
Jeff Gordon - Nothing's change, he will always be a threat to win any race
Jimmy Johnson - He's running the wheels off his race cars
Matt Kenseth - He's always near the front these days
Kurt Busch - He has had some bad luck lately but been running a good race car
Used to be Dale Jr. but he's been having his problems I would even say Bobby Labonte is the hotter race car driver right now. He has been getting top 5's like no tommorow.
I am also keeping my eyes on Tony Stewart, he looked good today, if he can come back with a good performance next week I might start playing him.
OK with 3 of your 4.
Don't see how you put Johnson in ahead of Bobby Labonte.
Labonte's last 5 finishes - 2,2,2,3,3
Johnson's last 5 finishes - 9,16,19,1,38
I think Jr will finish the year ahead of Johnson on the points as well.
how bout a bottom five list? here is my personal, unscientific try. i'm sure there are more deserving drivers than these for the actual bottom-feeder list(e.g. larry foyt), but i'm concentrating on those regularly offered in wagering matchups.
no particular order
steve park - just not the same since the unfortunate wreck. #1, #30, #000, it doesn't matter.
john andretti - if trouble doesn't find him, he will find trouble. not quite as bad this year.
jeremy mayfield - wouldn't bet on him with your money.
robby gordon - maybe in a road race, otherwise....yikes.
jeff green - dominant in busch series, clueless in winston cup.
I guess I just don't like Labonte.
Johnson is always up their but normally gets spun out at the end of the race.
Labonte is solid but I noticed his pit crew keeps screwing him up from winning races.
Johnson won the Winston, the Coca-Cola 600 so he is pretty hot these days.
Robby Gordon is much improved this year.
He is head up 7-6 vs Mark Martin, 8-5 vs Dale Jarrett, 7-6 vs Tony Stewart, 8-5 vs Jeff Burton.
That said, I would take any of those drivers this week against him for a limit play.
i need to pay better attention, old biases die hard. i guess its just because i'm still pissed off at him for blowing the sonoma road race a couple of years ago that he had in the bag @ 70-1 by racing the lap-down harvick instead of just letting him by late in the race.
but it might just be a trap, he's trying to lure me into betting on him again so he can crush my bankroll like a bug.
That's pretty funny about Mayfield.
I guess you are always in danger of the driver getting fired when taking the under.
Don't like the min # of races started rule.
If you bet a driver under and he stinks so bad he loses his ride, that should be a win.
If you bet the over on a driver and he is over and gets hurt, that should also count.
