NASCAR odds have really taken off in recent years in terms of popularity, in the media, and with fans around the United States. NASCAR odds continue to expand at sportsbooks around the world. Sportsbooks around the world have gone from just posting NASCAR odds on individual drivers to win races to now featuring driver matchups as well as numerous proposition bets to make for great NASCAR betting odds options for gamblers. These NASCAR betting odds include Nextel Cup races and they also include Nationwide Series races. Remember that the Nationwide Series was formerly known as the Busch Series.
You want to remember that the NASCAR season is the longest in all of sports stretching from mid-February to mid-November. That gives gamblers a lot of NASCAR odds to look at each year. As you look at NASCAR betting odds there are several different bets that you can make at a sportsbook. One of the ways you can wager on NASCAR odds at sportsbooks is the matchup. A matchup bet is where a sportsbook lists two different drivers in a head to head matchup with NASCAR odds posted on each driver. The driver that finished better would be the winner. For example, you might have one driver at -150 against another driver who would be +130. This is a straight money line wager in which you just want your driver to beat the other in NASCAR odds. You risk $150 for every $100 you want to win on the favorite and get $130 for every $100 wagered on the underdog in NASCAR odds.
Betting on an individual driver to win a race with is another popular way to bet NASCAR odds at sportsbooks. This is kind of like a future bet because each driver has NASCAR odds ranging anywhere from 5-1 up to 100-1 or more. You also have options at some sportsbooks where you can wager on things like the amount of cautions, race speed, etc. Those are just other sportsbook betting options that make NASCAR betting odds exciting. Remember that Nationwide Series odds are usually available on Saturday while the Nextel Cup races are usually on Sundays during the season.
