Joey Logano was accused of cheating last weekend by Martin Truex Jr., but NASCAR disagreed. At any rate, Logano ended up dropping the FireKeepers Casino 400, making his second victory of this season. His NASCAR Cup Championship chances are now at +700, but is he a good bet to win for a second consecutive season, or is he too risky of a wager?

*Odds taken 06/13/19 Logano is Hot Now Logano has a couple of really powerful moves this year in which you believe him as a good bet to win everything, and then he’ll have the odd hiccup here and there. He placed fourth in the Dayton 500 but followed that up with a 23rd at Atlanta. He had three straight top 10’s after that and then back-to-back finishes of 17th and 19th.
Logano is really on a heater. He won last week at Michigan but that has been his fourth straight top 7 end and eighth in his last nine outings. He is currently the leader concerning things in the NASCAR standings, along with a case could be made that he’s been the best driver annually.

Back-to-Back Championship Winners Are Rare The challenge with gambling on Logano is that you need to remember that winning the NASCAR championship in back-to-back decades is tough. No driver has done that because Jimmie Johnson had his historic run of five straight titles in a row from 2006-2010.
Logano Are Overshadowed
One reason Logano is not higher up the record concerning odds (although he’s on top of the points standings) is because he has been overshadowed by motorists with more wins. This past weekend was his second win of the season, but Kyle Busch has four wins, Martin Truex Jr. has three, and Denny Hamlin contains two.
