NASCAR Odds: Bettors favor Chase for Coke glory


NASCAR continues to claim the headlines in 2022 and Chase Elliott is the man of the moment heading into this weekend’s action.

Elliott is just +290 (bet $100 to win $290) to top the Cup Series Championship standings at the end of 2022 and he is also the favorite to claim victory at the Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona on Sunday.

While F1 is growing in popularity in the U.S. right now (thank Netflix for that) it will never rival NASCAR for top billing in motorsport.

Who is favored to win NASCAR this weekend

Chase Elliott is the +1100 favorite to win the Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona. Those odds though tell you it is a pretty wide open betting line.

Can you bet on NASCAR?

Absolutely, but it depends on what state you are in when you want to place the bet. U.S. sports betting laws are based on location not residency. Check out the latest on the legal situation.

How do odds work in NASCAR?

The same as in other sports. Each driver will have a + number or a – number for you to bet on.
If a driver is +350 that means if you bet $100 and they win you get $350 plus your $100 back.
If a driver is -350 it means you need to bet $350 to win $100 plus your $100 stake back.

What are the best NASCAR bets?

The simplest is the money line to win the race. You can also bet a driver to finish in the top 3 or top 5 – you’ll obviously get worse odds for those bets. Some sportsbooks also offer a ton of props around the major races.

Who is the most winning team in NASCAR?

That would be Hendrick Motorsports with an incredible 284 wins through 20 different drivers. Hendrick overtook Petty Enterprises last May when Kyle Larson claimed the win at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Coke 600. Petty had set the target of 269 and for a long time it appeared that might never be beaten.
