NASCAR Betting Online: If you're looking for the best advice for NASCAR betting, you've certainly come to the right place. Here at Bookmaker sportsbook, we're previewing the Coke Zero 400, which will be held on Saturday, July 6th, 2013 at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona, Florida, featuring Jimmie Johnson, Tony Stewart, Carl Edwards and Kevin Harvick.
It's been a tough season for Tony Stewart thus far on the Sprint Cup Series circuit, but a race that has always been good to him is coming up soon. Stewart could gain some points in the standings with another good performance at the Coke Zero 400, which will take place on Saturday, July 6th, 2013 at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona, Florida. Stewart is the defending champion and has won here four times, which should put him among the favorites in NASCAR betting.
Tony Stewart has only accumulated 291 points in 12 starts this season, which is good for 20th place. He is going to have a tough time catching the leaders, but can at least make a positive move with another solid race at the Coke Zero 400. His first victory came in 2005, then followed it up with wins in 2006 and 2009 in addition to last season. Stewart can tie David Pearson for the most career victories in this race if he can find victory lane once again.
Jimmie Johnson is the current points leader with 445 points, followed by Carl Edwards (413 points), Matt Kenseth (394 points), Clint Bowyer (385 points) and Kasey Kahne (370 points). No other current driver has won here multiple times. David Ragan won in 2011, while Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch, Jamie McMurray, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Jeff Gordon are also former champions. This will be an interesting race because Stewart has history here but not the same current success. Drivers like Johnson and Edwards have been very good this year, but no wins at the Coke Zero 400. Tune in to see if past history or current success wins out in NASCAR betting.

How to bet on Nascar Coke Zero 400 Powered by Coca-Cola
The odds of a driver to win the Coke Zero 400 Powered by Coca-Cola 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 Coke Zero 400 Powered by Coca-Cola, 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 Coke Zero 400 Powered by Coca-Cola 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 Coke Zero 400 Winner - Jimmie Johnson wins the 2013 Coke Zero 400
Another milestone for Jimmie Johnson and another spectacular finish for Daytona International Speedway.
Jimmie Johnson beat Tony Stewart to the finish line in Saturday night's Coke Zero 400 to record the first season sweep of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at the 2.5-mile superspeedway since Bobby Allison accomplished the feat in 1982.
As Johnson crossed the line at the end of a green-white-checkered-flag finish, the second of two massive last-lap crashes erupted behind him. Kevin Harvick stayed in front of the melee to run third, followed by Clint Bowyer and Michael Waltrip.
The victory was Johnson's fourth of the season -- tying Matt Kenseth for most in the series -- and the 64th of his career.
The five-time champion led the field to the restart on Lap 133 and stayed in the top spot until a wild six-car crash near the entry to the tri-oval on Lap 149 stacked two-thirds of the field and wrecked the cars of Denny Hamlin (who slammed nose-first into the frontstretch wall), Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth, AJ Allmendinger, Dave Blaney and David Reutimann.
2012 Coke Zero 400 Winner - Tony Stewart wins Coke Zero 400
There was no fire or rain. Still, another frantic finish at Daytona International Speedway.
Tony Stewart emerged the winner, charging past Daytona 500 winner Matt Kenseth on the last lap and holding on as the challengers stacked up behind him Saturday night in one of Daytona's trademark wrecks.
Stewart has 18 victories at Daytona, second only to the late Dale Earnhardt's 34 wins.
None of Stewart's wins are in the Daytona 500, though. Stewart is 0 for 14 in NASCAR's biggest race of the year and was a non-factor in February, when the race was delayed a day by rain and then stopped more than two hours for a massive jet dryer fire.
But he's always strong in the summer race at Daytona, and this visit was no different.
Stewart qualified second but dropped back to 42nd at the start of the race because his time was thrown out by NASCAR after his Chevrolet failed inspection. He quietly rode around -- which is his style at restrictor-plate races -- and let Roush Fenway Racing teammates Kenseth and Greg Biffle control the front.
2011 Daytona Coke Zero 400 Winner - Georgia Native David Ragan Wins Coke Zero 400
After giving away a shot at winning the Daytona 500 with an improper lane change on the next-to-last restart in February, David Ragan has won his first Sprint Cup Series race, taking the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona.
Teammate Matt Kenseth was second, followed by Joey Logano, Kasey Kahne, and Kyle Busch.
There were two crashes on the final lap of the race, in the second green-white-checker period, but the race remained green to the finish line, with Ragan's No. 6 Ford crossing the line ahead of the field.
On the first green-white-checkered, Mark Martin and Joey Logano made contact, triggering a multi-car cras that collected many drivers who had contended throughout the night such as Martin Truex Jr., David Reutimann, and Clint Bowyer.
Ragan's win is the first for Atlanta-based UPS since Dale Jarrett's Talladega victory in 2005. It comes in his 163rd career start. There have been rumors and speculation abound about his future with the Roush-Fenway Racing organization, but he has had a solid season thus far and perhaps solidified his place with the team with his win tonight.
Kevin Harvick held off Kasey Kahne and Jeff Gordon to win NASCAR's Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway.
The race start was delayed almost two hours by rain. But when the field finally took the green flag, the early portions of the race were hardly the uncontrolled wreck-fest many predicted of the slippery summer conditions. Most of the 47 lead changes came early on in a respectable game of give-and-take.
"Daytona has just been one of those magical places for us. Tonight, that wasn't the situation I wanted to be in. I wanted to be behind him and push him. But we got split up on the restart and that was it '', said Harvick.
