How Can I Win Betting on NASCAR?

Because NASCAR is a smaller betting market, lines are softer than the major U.S. sports as oddsmakers are more apt to focus on setting sharper numbers for more heavily wagered leagues. By analyzing historical data and performance, weekly practice sessions and qualifying results, bettors can find value wagering on NASCAR.

What is NASCAR Futures Odds betting?

Futures simply refer to which driver will win a race outright. For example, if Kyle Busch is +1000 to win the Daytona 500 and ends up in Victory Lane, bettors backing Busch will be paid $10 for every $1 risked.

What is a NASCAR head-to-head driver matchup bet?

Head-to-head driver matchups are similar to moneyline betting in other sports. When it comes to NASCAR, oddsmakers will pit one driver against another with associated odds.The goal for bettors is to pick which of the two drivers will finish ahead of the other.

For example, assume Kyle Busch is a -125 favorite over Chase Elliott, who is -105. Should Busch finish ahead of Elliott, bettors will be paid $100 for every $125 risked. On the other hand, if Elliott bests Busch, bettors backing Chase would be paid $100 for every $105 wagered.
