NASCAR Betting 101: What you need to know


The Basics

The NASCAR season runs nearly year-round and gives sports bettors the option to bet on an overall season champion, individual race winners, and head-to-head driver props. The NASCAR season kicks off with the Daytona 500 and continues with big races like the Coca-Cola 600, GEICO 500 at Talladega, and Bank of America 500. The season officially ends with the Sprint Cup Championship - NASCAR’s version of the playoffs.


Odds and Moneylines

It’s important to know that most sportsbooks post their NASCAR odds at the start of the race week, prior to Sprint Cup series team qualifications and practice sessions. Once the week of qualifying and practice racing is complete, sportsbooks will then repost their odds on race day.

NASCAR gives sports bettors the option to bet on the outright winner of a specific race with odds for each driver depending on their current form and past success at individual tracks. One of the more popular NASCAR prop offerings is often known as "Speed Lanes" in which three drivers are pitted against each other with different values for each individual driver. NASCAR betting also offers sports bettors the option of future odds on who they think will qualify or win the Sprint Cup Championship.


Other Consdirations

What else should you consider when betting on NASCAR?

Past success – Certain drivers have consistent success at particular tracks, be it super speedways, half-mile ovals, or road courses.

Qualifying races – Qualifying race results, including the makeup of the physical track, can greatly impact the results of race day.

Practice – NASCAR bettors can get valuable information on drivers and their cars from weekly practice sessions.

Bet Types – Sportsbooks will offer three types of NASCAR bets:

  1. Race winners
  2. Driver matchups/Speed Lanes
  3. Propositions


Tips and Tools

Like it or not, NASCAR’s popularity has continued to grow ever since FOX and NBC took over the television broadcasting rights in 2001.
