Who is favored to win 2014 NASCAR Sprint Title heading into Chicago?

Who will come out on top in the Chase? Can Junior win his first title?
LAS VEGAS -- The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook has adjusted its odds to win the 2014 Sprint Cup Championship with a new favorite at the top of the board. For the first time this season, Jeff Gordon is considered the favorite to win at 7-to-2 odds after opening the season at 10-to-1. If he does win, it would be his fifth Sprint Cup title and first since 2001.

The key ingredient to winning the Chase is faring well on the five 1.5-mile tracks littered across the next 10 races. So far we have seen two organizations -- Hendrick Motorsports and Penske Racing -- win all six of the 1.5-miile layouts this season. Brad Keselowski, who comes in tied as the co-second choice to win at 4-to-1 with Jimmie Johnson, is the only driver to win multiple times on this type of layout.

Here's a look at the odds posted on each driver to win the Chase with some assistance by the folks at NASCAR Integrated Marketing Communications to breakdown what each driver's 2014 resume looks like so far:
1 - Brad Keselowski (No. 2 Miller Lite Ford) 4-1

2014 Rundown
