2012 Samsung Mobile 500 Odds: Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon The Favorites

It's NASCAR week at Texas Motor Speedway, and it all culminates on Saturday night when the 2012 Samsung Mobile 500 gets underway. Last year, Matt Kenseth won, but the defending Samsung Mobile 500 champion isn't the favorite -- though that shouldn't come as much surprise.

Vegas Insider, which is presented by Top Bet, lists NASCAR superstar Jimmie Johnson as the favorite for this year's Samsung Mobile 500, giving him 5/1 odds to win on Saturday night. This comes as a surprise to absolutely nobody, of course, as Johnson has been the most dominant driver in recent years.

Last year's winner, Matt Kenseth, has 10/1 odds to win, which is tied for fifth best. Jeff Gordon (6/1), Kyle Busch (7/1) and Tony Stewart (8/1) are also ahead of Kenseth.

Dale Earnhardt Junior, who won his first NASCAR race ever at Texas Motor Speedway, has 12/1 odds to win the race on Saturday night.

Qualifying for the Samsung Mobile 500 will be held on Friday afternoon.
