Is there anything as exciting and truly American as NASCAR in the sporting world? NASCAR races are some of the most thrilling events on the sporting calendar for enthusiasts of high-octane car racing. Ask any fan of the sport about it and you will see the passion and love they have for the racing extravaganza that is a NASCAR Odds race.
If you add to that excitement the fact that you could make some top dollar betting on the fast driven action, like who the best driver to win the NASCAR Odds is, which racing team will end up winning the Manufacturer’s Championship or who’s looking best to take the next race in the cup series calendar, then a whole new world opens up. A world just as fast paced and exciting as the races themselves.
The 2022 NASCAR Cup Series, the 73rd season for professional stock car racing in the US, and the 50th season for the modern Cup Series title has been underway since early February with the running of the non-point awarding Busch Clash in Daytona Beach Speedway. Six of the 36 Cup Series official races, counting regular season and playoffs are already down, including the almighty Daytona 500, won by driver Michael McDowell, making it his first-ever career victory and third for his Front Row Motorsports team.
While it’s still early on to get a full scope as to where the 2022 NASCAR Odds are leaning towards, household racing names like Denny Hamlin, Joey Logano, Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch always stand out as some of the strongest options if looking for a safe bet come race day.
NASCAR betting can be a daunting world in its own. Unlike any other team sports wagering action, betting on NASCAR Odds has a few twists and turns of its own, just like the races themselves. In order to dive fully into the world of NASCAR betting, first, some simple concepts must be understood. Each NASCAR season has a 9-month duration including the playoffs and championship series.
There are many ways in which one can make money off betting on NASCAR odds. From picking drivers individually, to head to head matchups, picking which manufacturer will win each race and the championship at the end,
BetUS offers NASCAR Odds for every event during both the regular and postseason to keep NASCAR racing fans who love to bet on the edge of their seats. The most typical option is betting on the money line, in which you basically get to pick out and wager on the driver with the best odds to win each race week after week.
Other types of attractive betting options can be picking who the top finishers of each race will be. While picking a driver to win a race might be difficult, especially considering just how wild and unexpected NASCAR Odds race results can be, playing it a little safer by picking out of the usual 40 drivers who will end up in the top spots can always be a good option for making a couple of bucks off the races.
Another option that is always attractive to racing fans, especially those who follow the sport on a daily basis is betting on NASCAR futures. Seen by some as another type of prop bet, betting on future events might come out as a stretch given the volatility of the sport.
Just like betting in the NFL for Super Bowl futures, NASCAR Odds has the same option: basically betting on who has the best odds online to finish out the season as series champion but why stop there. Other interesting future bets include which driver will end up with the most wins during the season and which driver will amount the most points at the end of the season.
Prop betting in NASCAR Odds like in any other sport is wagering on specific scenarios that happen exclusively for the sport in hand. With NASCAR prop bets there is no exception to that rule, with popular options ranging from picking the driver that will lead for the most laps in a race to how many caution laps will be taken given the amount of crashes that usually happen in these races. And in case you were wondering, yes, another very popular prop bet is how many crashes any given race will have, all in the name of good old betting fun.
NASCAR Cup Series Championship
Known as one of America’s favorite pastimes, NASCAR Odds can be an exciting, adrenaline-boosting day if you make your way down to the racetracks. With over 1,500 races at over 100 tracks throughout 48 American states, you will find that there are plenty of NASCAR betting opportunities available throughout the season.
NASCAR has many different racing series, featuring various skill levels for drivers from around the world. The three main NASCAR Odds series that are tested on a national level are:
To gamble on any of these races, you first will need to learn the ins and outs of NASCAR betting, and how the NASCAR odds work. It’s important to learn as much as you can before creating your betting strategy.
While it can be as cut and dry as predicting who will win the race, there are some other NASCAR Odds options you should familiarize yourself with. You can bet on plenty of different outcomes that occur during the race, much like horse racing betting, which allows you some alternative options if you aren’t really sure who will win outright.
We can start with the easiest and most popular option since we’ve already talked about it above. Betting on who will win the race is as simple as it gets, you choose a driver, if he wins, you win and if he doesn’t, neither do you. There will be several different drivers listed with all different Nascar odds based on their likelihood of winning the race.
For instance, if you like Dale Earnhardt Jr. to win the race, and he has -400 odds since he’s a mega favorite in this particular race, you will need to bet $400 to win $100. Essentially to bet on a favored driver, you will need to bet the odds amount to win $100.
Let’s say his odds are +250, he could still be a favored driver, but just not so much of a longshot. When you see the positive number, you will know that is how much you will win if you bet $100.
You can bet any amount, obviously, it’s just a quick and easy way to figure out how much you’d win. You can bet on multiple drivers as well – which can cover your bases if you aren’t totally sure which will win.
Pole Position (Fastest Qualifier)
Where a driver starts in a race is important in the grand scheme of things. Drivers prefer certain pole positions and will compete in qualifiers before the race to determine where they will start the race. They are judged on their lap times and the fastest lap is awarded the first pole position.
Before you dig into your main event NASCAR Odds, you can bet on these qualifiers as a warm-up, just like the drivers are doing. This could be an easy bet to place as you could potentially pick a sure winner based on past performances.
Much like horse racing, which would be the closest sport to car racing, we see similarities in NASCAR Odds as well. If you’re new to racing and the podium, there are the top three spots and those three drivers will step onto the podium at the end of the race. Obviously the first place driver will have the top spot and the second and third place drivers will be on the lower blocks.
You are able to bet on a driver to have a podium finish, which means you are betting on a driver to be standing on that podium at the end of the race. It doesn’t matter which block they stand on, just as long as they finish in the top three. The odds will be shorter in this sense as you are taking more risk out of the wager, but it’s handy if you think your driver might choke on the final lap.
It’s common in individual sports betting online where there are plenty of players on the field (or racetrack in this case) to be paired up and compete against each other by sportsbooks. When you don’t have direct competition between two people, it lacks the ability to be predictable, so NASCAR Odds introduced driver matchups. If you’re familiar with golf, they do this in major events in the form of moneyline wagers.
Again, you don’t have to pick the winner of the race, you just have to pick a driver to do better than another driver. All he has to do is place above the other.

The major NASCAR races have qualifiers that will determine the starting positions. Many of the races are determined by their fastest lap in their previous race, as well as their finishing position. Two other factors include the owner of the car’s record, and the car’s previous finish in its last race (cars don’t always have the same drivers for every race).
In the 2021 NASCAR season, which was a unique one with the pandemic shutting much of the United States down, Kyle Busch came out as the highest paid NASCAR driver with $17.8 million.
In 1971, the Dodge Charger was banned from NASCAR because it was a mechanical masterpiece, dominating the races and leaving other cars in its dust – with one car specifically clocking over 200 mph. The Plymouth Superbird was also banned alongside the Charger.
The NASCAR Most Popular Driver Award has been awarded to the most popular driver throughout the NASCAR Cup Series events. The award is voted on by U.S. citizens and was awarded to Justin Allgaier in 2020. Bill Elliott holds the record for most NASCAR Most Popular Driver Award with 15 between 1984 and 2002.
