Veteran oddsmaker Micah Roberts of Station Casinos in Las Vegas has chosen not one, but two favorites for the March 12 UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 NASCAR Nextel Cup Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Roberts has set the odds for both Jimmie Johnson and Greg Biffle at 10-to-1. Johnson is the defending champion for the Las Vegas event and also won the 2006 Daytona 500.

The odds to win the UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 appear to be tighter than past years, as Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards and Jamie McMurray are close to Johnson and Biffle at 11-to-1. Defending Nextel Cup Series champion Tony Stewart and past Las Vegas winners Mark Martin and Matt Kenseth are listed at 12-to-1.

Las Vegas natives Kurt Busch - the 2004 NASCAR Nextel Cup Series champion - and younger brother Kyle are ranked at 14-to-1.
