NASCAR Odds on Daytona 500 at Sports Gambling

NASCAR odds will be set for the February 15 Daytona 500 as the NASCAR betting odds board will have quite a new look.

NASCAR odds will be set on an off season that was filled with constant change as the NASCAR betting odds will definitely have a new equation to them throughout 2009.  “The Great American Race” as it is known throughout the world will have NASCAR odds set on a 500 mile race that consists of 200 laps around the 2.5 mile tri-oval high banked track that has the added NASCAR betting odds intangible of being a restrictor plate race.

“Plate races” always change the dynamics of the NASCAR odds.  For those unfamiliar, restrictor plate races are on the two largest tracks, Daytona and Talladega.  The NASCAR betting odds factors are quite a different equation from normal because the restrictor plates are set in the cars to reduce speed, supposedly to make it safer.

The opposite effect tends to happen as long time NASCAR odds players know.  Normally, in fact, Daytona 500 betting will feature what is known as the “Big One” in which a multitude of cars will end up in a wreck and out of the race because the restrictor plates keep the cars very close and packed tightly together.

This makes for a great challenge in both setting and betting the NASCAR odds.  This year Daytona 500 betting will feel a lot like Indianapolis 500 wagering as the field has a number of drivers who have competed in both events starting with, of course, Tony Stewart, who is still searching for his first Daytona 500 win against the NASCAR odds.

NASCAR odds players know that it is not an exaggeration to say that Stewart is obsessed with winning the Daytona 500.  Another strong contender against the NASCAR odds would be last year's winner Ryan Newman.  Dale Earnhardt Jr. is another big favorite with NASCAR odds handicappers, especially in plate races.

Jeff Gordon has had a lot of success at Daytona and will be another strong contender to beat the NASCAR odds.
