Betting Insights for Ally 400

The inaugural event in 2021 for the Ally 400 saw the Hendricks Motorsports team near the top of the scoring board for most of the weekend. Teammates, William Byron, and Kyle Larson, drove their Chevrolets to the top of the list in practice times with fellow Hendricks teammate, Chase Elliott turning the third fastest lap. They then qualified fourth, fifth, and sixth, respectively. Larson took the checkered flag with Byron rounding off the podium with a third-place finish. Elliott finished in a disappointing 13th but was later disqualified for having unsecured tires (more than three lug nuts were loose at the conclusion of the race).

Chevrolets may not have been the fastest in qualifying in the first race at the superspeedway, but were the dominant manufacturer at the end of the 400 miles, taking six of the top eight positions.

How To Read NASCAR Betting Odds

Before you bet on a NASCAR race, there are different ways to bet on NASCAR races. Futures bets, where you place a wager on a result to be determined later such as “who will win the cup series”. Then, there are weekly wagers on who will win the race or driver match-ups where you wager on which driver will place ahead of the other.

When wagering on NASCAR, you might notice the favorite will almost always have a plus sign next to their odds. In other sports, the favorite is usually shown with a minus sign next to the odds. If the favorite has a minus sign such as -120, you have to wager that number to profit $100. As an example, you have to bet $120 to win $220, a profit of $100. If the race favorite has a plus sign next to his name,  like +120, then that is what you would profit by betting $100.

Futures Betting

Futures bets are a type of prop bet which entails betting on the future results of a certain driver or team. Common examples could be; will Kyle Larson repeat as the NASCAR Cup Champion? Or which race team will finish with the most wins in 2022?

History of the Ally 400 Race

NASCAR had last raced in Nashville 37 years ago at the Nashville Fairgrounds back in 1984. In 2001, the Nashville Superspeedway was opened and hosted NASCAR’s Busch Series and others up until the declining attendance took it off the schedule in 2012. There was a rumor of NASCAR returning to the Fairgrounds starting in 2019 until in the summer of 2020 it was announced that the NASCAR Cup Series signed a four-year deal to add the Nashville Superspeedway to its schedule beginning in 2021.

NASCAR Ally 400 Betting tips

Each week you can wager on which driver will win that week’s race. Also, many sportsbooks will allow you to be a little more cautious and choose whether a driver will finish in the top three, top five, or other options.

Picking a racer to win a race is a risky task as there are crashes, car failures, and even problems on pit road. To get beyond that and run the perfect race over all the other drivers is very difficult indeed and that’s why the odds have a good value of +300 (3:1) or more for the favorite of each race and then higher odds for all other drivers following. It’s not unusual to win with a driver that pays +1000 (10:1) on any given race as the level of difficulty to win is so high.

Head-to-head matchups allow bettors to focus on a certain head-to-head battle between two racers, rather than the more general wager of winning the race. These matchups are typically between two drivers or a group of four drivers. Bettors select which driver will have a better result in the race.

NASCAR prop bets are when you wager on specific racing scenarios that may occur. Examples of this could be; how many caution flags will be thrown? Which manufacturer will win the race? The number of crashes in a race. And the list goes on. A fun way to enjoy the market and get away from the seriousness of winning the race.
