Rev Up Your Gears for NASCAR Betting

in Bet

NASCAR betting is probably one of the easiest betting sports out there but unfortunately, not a lot of people are familiar with it. However, there’s a huge following for this sports and there are also hardcore sports bettors that are very much in love with NASCAR betting.

If you haven’t tried this one out then you really are missing on some great speed action and speedy revenue. Why don’t we get our gears and start out with NASCAR betting?

Keys to remember with NASCAR Betting


Now, just like any other betting sports NASCAR betting has varieties that a bettor might take advantage of. There are two popular NASCAR bets that you should familiarize yourself with before you start betting on the sport. The most popular is the outright bet, which is a wager on who will win a given race. This is a fairly simple bet; you put money on a single driver, and if he wins, you get paid. For instance, if you bet on Jimmie Johnson to win a race at 8-1 odds, then you will win $8 for each $1 you bet should Johnson win the race.

The second one is the head-to-head driver matchup. This is a simple type of bet where one can bet on which of two drivers will finish higher in the upcoming race. Essentially, it turns the race into a match between two drivers which you can bet on just like making a moneyline bet in team sports.

Driver Average

There’s also a bit of statistic to learn here but it won’t flex your brains much. Driver average will tell you certain information about a driver’s average finish over the course of the season or even their entire career which can be a factor for you to help you decide on betting on them. You can also check out their stats on individual tracks. Almost every NASCAR driver has some tracks that they do particularly well on, as well as a few they tend to struggle on. Many drivers have a preference for super speedways, while others do better on the mile-and-a-half tracks, and some are adept on the road courses. Along with recent results, you should definitely take a driver’s track record (no pun intended) into consideration before making any bets.

Practice Speeds

Find a driver that has great posted times, he’s someone you should put your money on.

Qualifying Results

Qualifying results are overrated as a method for handicapping NASCAR races, but they aren’t without value. The biggest issue is that some drivers (and cars) perform better in qualifying than on race day, while others do the opposite.
