How To Read NASCAR Racing Odds

As in the case of most motorsports, NASCAR odds are pretty simple to read and interpret. First, most bettors like to pin their wagers on futures to predict the winner of events. For instance, bettors can wager on a series of racers that they believe will take home the glory of a series of upcoming cup events. 

Bettors can also wager on standings and predict the estimated positions at the end of the race. That implies that bettors will focus on simply picking which drivers will make the first three-pole positions or merely wager on a driver to make it into the top three. 

The way to do this is by picking your top drover. If the odds favoring your pick are at -150, that implies that for every $150 wagered, a bettor can make a $100 profit. Conversely, if the driver’s odds are favorable and perhaps set at +150, that means that for every $100 wager, a bettor can record a $150 profit. 

Futures Betting

Futures encourage bettors to pick which specific drivers they believe will win various cup events. Some futures will also allow bettors to determine which drivers they think will win the entire season and a categorized award such as Top Rookie of the Year.
