Just as in other sports, NASCAR gambling has some power teams. In the case of NASCAR you can call them power drivers, but in essence it really is teams that win. The pit crew, the engine designers, etc. are all part of the team. There are some teams in NASCAR betting, such as the Rick Hendrick team with Jimmy Johnson and Jeff Gordon, or the Jack Roush team with Matt Kenseth and others that will always be competitive.
Because some teams are more competitive than others the prices on these teams will be higher. The same principle applies in other sports. If you look at the other end of NASCAR gambling you will see some teams that always struggle.
Certain teams don't have the money that the big boys have and really have no shot on a weekly basis of contending for a win. These teams often don’t even finish the races and are made generous underdogs by oddsmakers.
In NASCAR gambling you will find out that drivers have their favorite tracks and by researching the past results of drivers at these different tracks or by going online and reading reports, you will gain an understanding of their tendencies. NASCAR also has rivalries just as in other sports where tempers will explode in short tracks.
You may find some drivers that really focus on certain tracks because of these rivalries. You should also know that NASCAR now has a playoff system and certain drivers that have clinched a spot may not be as good of values against the odds as are those who are fighting to get a spot.
Every week it seems more people start to gamble on NASCAR. The television ratings are already huge and gamblers are starting to take more of a notice.
