Short odds on James

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Motorsport -

THE bet­ting mar­kets list James Court­ney as the favourite for the V8 Su­per­cars cham­pi­onship ti­tle. The Jim Beam Rac­ing Fal­con driver has led the cham­pi­onship since May and takes a 53-point ad­van­tage over Jamie Whin­cup (Team Voda­fone) into the ti­tle-de­cider at Home­bush in Syd­ney this week­end.

Court­ney is tipped at $1.33 to $1.36 in three bet­ting mar­kets ahead of Whin­cup on $3 to $3.30. The only other driver with a math­e­mat­i­cal chance of claim­ing the ti­tle is Mark Win­ter­bot­tom (Ford Per­for­mance Rac­ing), who trails Court­ney by 203 points and is $67 in the mar­kets.
