NASCAR Betting Online: Watkins Glen International is one of the most anticipated race courses for fans of the NASCAR Nationwide Series, as it is one of the only road tracks in the circuit. With such an exciting event in store in the upcoming Zippo 200 at the Glen, you will want to access Bookmaker now to bet on the NASCAR Nationwide Series online.
The race get going at 2:00 PM ET on Saturday, August 10, from Watkins Glen, NY, and with something as unpredictable as a road course, placing your bet on this one will certainly be a nail-biting experience.
The Glen has seen its share of excitement, danger, and skilled road course driving, even by those unused to constant turns, not to mention some that have the audacity to go to the right.
If history stands true, then this race may already be over. Over the last three years, Marcus Ambrose has won the Zippo 200 at the Glen each time, becoming just the second driver to win three straight events. The other is Terry Labonte, who went undefeated from 94 to 96, while also sneaking in a win in 1991, giving him the outright lead in most wins at this event.
Ron Fellows came close to a three-peat, but a pesky Dale Earnhardt, Jr, emerged in 1999 to break up what would have been an equally impressive record.
Ambrose used quick maneuvers and skilled driving to bring home victories at this circuit track for three years straight. Bet on him at your own peril, as the odds will likely be stacked unfavorably for you front runners. For those who believe in change, try any of the other number of solid, young drivers who are out there ready to display their talent.
How to bet on Nascar ZIPPO 200
The odds of a driver to win the ZIPPO 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 ZIPPO 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 ZIPPO 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.
2012 Zippo 200 at the Glen Winner - Carl Edwards wins 2012 Nationwide Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen Int'l
Carl Edwards, 32, in the #60 Subway Ford, won the 2012 Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen International on Saturday. The win is the first of the season for Edwards and the first victory and top-10 showing in his eight races at The Glen, according to NASCAR.
Mr. Edwards beat out Brad Keselowski in his #22 SKF/Discount Tire Dodge, who came in second and Sam Hornish, Jr., who started the race in pole position in his #12 PPG Dodge but came in third.
Asked about his victory, Mr. Edwards said, "This win means a lot." He continued, "We had virtually no practice. Just a really fun race. Really hard racing for the win."
About the challenges of The Glen's road course, Edwards commented, "The starts here are very difficult," with the slope downhill and then the 90-degree Turn 1. "You have to pick your braking points very carefully."
The racer said he thought today's win will help his run in the Sprint Cup Series on Sunday in the Finger Lakes 355. "It's nice to win races," he said. However, he indicated, "Sometimes even the best performances don't get a trophy." Today, he didn't think he had his best performance, yet he got the trophy.
