LAS VEGAS -- Brad Keselowski may have been impressive in winning his first Sprint Cup title two weeks ago, but not enough to make him the favorite among Las Vegas bettors to repeat.
Not even close.
The sports book at the Las Vegas Wynn that is hosting Friday night's Sprint Cup banquet has Keselowski tied with Jeff Gordon for seventh in odds for winning the 2013 title.
Keselowski, who won the title by 39 points over Bowyer and 40 over Johnson, and Gordon are next at 11-1.
"I was thinking I ought to put $100 down on my name,'" Keselowski said Tuesday during a live radio show from the Wynn sports book.
Keselowski kicked off champion's week with a full day, ranging from an open interview at the Motorsports Marketing Forum at the Aria Convention Center to dinner with NASCAR president Mike Helton.
Keselowski didn't seem bothered by the odds for 2013, reminding few gave him a chance to win it all this year.
