Favorite to win Sprint Cup Series

Depending on who you ask and where you look, Carl Edwards has emerged as the favorite to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship.
The season-opening Daytona 500 is more than a week away, but it's never too early to start the Cup debate.
Greg Biffle, teammate of Carl Edwards at Rouch Fenway Racing, said Edwards is a favorite only because it's unlikely Jimmie Johnson will win a fourth straight Cup championship. Johnson, a driver from El Cajon, has won the past three Cup championships, tying a mark set by Cale Yarborough.
“I think a lot of people like to play the odds game," Biffle said. "What are the odds of him winning four in a row? I’m not counting him out. I wasn’t the one who said he wasn’t gonna win it (laughing), but I’m just telling you that’s the way people will look at it. They’ll think, ‘Aw, he’s already won three in a row, he won’t win four.’ How many he has won in that past doesn’t have an impact on how he’s gonna do today.”
