Daytona Odds Start 2010 NASCAR Betting

NASCAR betting begins in 2010 with the Daytona 500 on February 14th.

The big race for those betting NASCAR racing is just one week after the Super Bowl so many who were betting football will take a look at NASCAR’s first race of the year.  Taking a look at a longshot might be the way to go at Daytona.

NASCAR betting has seen a lot of different winners in the opening race and just because a driver wins at Daytona does not mean he will do well the rest of the season. Daytona is a restrictor plate race and that basically means it is a race full of wrecks that anyone can win.  It is a great race for the fans and for those who like longshots when betting NASCAR racing. It is not, however a race that can be handicapped when you are considering NASCAR betting lines.  Too often a wreck takes top cars out of the race so there is really no use in looking at many stats when betting NASCAR racing with Daytona.  Jimmie Johnson is the best driver in NASCAR but he has not had a lot of success at Daytona. He is not the favorite in NASCAR betting either. That honor goes to Kyle Busch who some people believe will bounce back with a good season.  Taking any driver at single-digit NASCAR betting odds at Daytona is risky though.  Taking a longhot is a better choice when betting NASCAR racing at Daytona.

Who are some of the longshots that can start the 2010 NASCAR betting season with a win? Denny Hamlin was as hot as anyone other than Johnson at the end of last season. He would be a great choice in NASCAR betting if you can get him at double-digit odds and that is very possible.  Rousch drivers are also worth a look at Daytona in NASCAR betting. It used to be that DEI cars dominated at Daytona but no more.  Now the Rousch cars can win as was evidenced last year with Matt Kenseth winning.  Someone like Jeff Burton at big NASCAR betting odds could easily win this race at 30-1 or more. Other longshots that could give you a chance to hit the big score in NASCAR betting for the season opener include Brian Vickers, Martin Truex Jr., and Greg Biffle. You should get them at 30-1 or more in NASCAR betting.
