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?

NASCAR EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix Betting tips

Chase Elliott. There is much to be said about trends in wagering and, when it comes to Chase Elliott’s expertise on the road courses, it’s much the same. He leads all current NASCAR drivers with seven total all-time road course victories, one of which was last year’s inaugural EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix.

Second to Elliott in road course wins are Kyle Busch and Martin Truex, Jr. with four each and Kyle Larson with three.

Until Elliott proves otherwise, he is the one to beat here in Austin.

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.

Fords have won 5 of the last 8 races over the Chevys. Early lap times show the Chevys could show stronger this year than the Fords, but with my money on Keselowski, the RFK Racing Ford will produce a duel winner. Expert pick: FORD
