NASCAR Betting Online: Unless you are one of the lucky ones that get to see it live, the 5-Hour Energy 200 Benefiting Living Beyond Breast Cancer comes to your television sets on Saturday, September 28 on ESPN2 starting at 3:30 PM ET. That afternoon start time means the bright sun at the Dover International Speedway and a party for all those in attendance. Really, if you haven't attended a NASCAR event, I don't know what you are waiting for.
Think of how great it is to be able to watch your NASCAR wagering online come to fruition live on television, now multiply that by 100 and you have the affect of watching it play out live, with the smell of burning rubber in your nose, and the roar of engines in your ears.
The 5-Hour Energy 200 Benefiting Living Beyond Breast Cancer has the advantage of a historic track as well, as the Dover International Speedway is one of the premier stops on the NASCAR tour.
I know that you will be more drawn to the Chase for the Sprint Cup, and rightfully so. The Chase is where you find all the best drivers and all the drama. However, if you are interested in winning wagers, then the NASCAR Nationwide Series is a terrible thing to waste. While everyone else busies themselves with the Sprint Cup, you can sneak over here and get in twice as many wagers, doubling your winning odds.
BookMaker's live lines have the odds, spreads, and futures you need to get in on this Nationwide action early, as you take advantage of a distracted bunch with some heady NASCAR wagering online. Don't ignore the Sprint Cup either, but make sure you realize that the Dover 200 has the same kind of winning potential as any Sprint Cup event surrounded by its golden aura.
How to bet on Nascar Dover 200
The odds of a driver to win the Dover 200 will generally look something like:
- Jeff Gordon + 200
- Mark Martin + 250
- Jeff Burton + 300
- Bill Elliott + 700
- Robby Gordon + 700
- Field + 500
These betting odds will be lower when betting on a driver to finish in the top three, as the sportsbook must pay off three different winning bets.
A player would have to bet $10 to win $20 that Jeff Gordon will win the Dover 200, while the bettor wagering on Bill Elliott stands to win $70 on their $10 wager.
Another commonly placed bet in NASCAR is head-to-head finish between two drivers. With this bet, a player doesn't really care what place the driver finishes in, as long as the driver finishes higher than the other driver.
A head-to-head betting line for the Dover 200 will look something like:
- Mark Martin - 130 Jeff Burton + 110
In this bet, players wagering on Martin to finish higher than Burton will be asked to risk $13 to win $10, while bettors believing that Burton will finish higher than Martin will bet $10 to win $11.
Those familiar with sports betting will have no trouble making the transition to NASCAR wagering, while those new to the world of sports betting should be able to pick up the concepts of NASCAR betting without too much hassle.
2013 5-Hour Energy 200 Winner - Logano dominates Dover Nationwide race, fails inspection
Joey Logano continued writing a wildly successful history at Dover International Speedway Saturday, winning his fourth consecutive Nationwide Series race at the fast 1-mile track, although his Ford failed post-race inspection.
Logano won the 5-Hour Energy 200 in a breeze, finishing 14.59 seconds in front of second-place Kyle Larson. Completing the top five were Kevin Harvick, Brian Vickers and Elliott Sadler.
After the victory lane celebration, NASCAR announced that the front end of Logano's Mustang measured too low on both sides in post-race inspection. Typically, such violations result in fines and/or point penalties, not in loss of the race win.
NASCAR said the car would be examined more closely at its Research and Development Center in Concord, N.C., early next week. Any penalties would follow.
Logano, a Sprint Cup regular driving for Penske Racing, became the first driver to win four consecutive races in any major NASCAR series at Dover.
2012 OneMain Financial 200 Winner - Logano dominates Dover
Joey Logano won his seventh Nationwide Series race of the season and 16th of his career when he took the checkered flag at Saturday’s OneMain Financial 200 at Dover International Speedway. It was Logano’s second win this year at the “Monster Mile,” making him the sixth driver in the Nationwide Series to sweep both Dover races; 2012 is also the third-straight year a driver has swept.
Logano, who qualified third in the #18 SportClips Toyota, led 184 of 200 laps in the event, giving Joe Gibbs Racing its 75th Nationwide Series win, just one week after collecting its 100th Cup Series win.
Brian Scott, in the #11 Dollar General Toyota, vaulted from 38th starting spot to a seventh-place finish at Dover, giving him his second top 10 finish at the track this year and the third of his career. Scott continues to hold ninth-place in Nationwide Series points.
2011 OneMain Financial 200 Winner - Carl Edwards cruised to a dominant win on the Monster Mile
Carl Edwards didn't take the lead of the OneMain Financial 200 Nationwide Series race at Dover International Speedway until the restart on lap 11 after a debris caution: but after that, he notched up 179 laps in front and was never under any threat.
Polesitter Elliott Sadler led the first ten laps, and Brad Keselowski had a couple of stints in the lead during pit stop sequences, but the winner of the 29th race of the 34-race season had never been in doubt.
Edwards finished 0.791s ahead of Keselowski at the end with fellow Cup regulars Clint Bowyer and Kasey Kayne taking the next positions. Edwards' Roush Fenway stablemates Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Trevor Bayne were the highest-placed of those eligible for Nationwide championship points in fifth and sixth.
