An important thing for every sports bettor is to have knowledge about the events schedules. For NASCAR there is no exception, that’s why at Online Betting Sports we share with you the latest betting news, updates and information about the NASCAR schedule.
Intro to NASCAR Schedule
The NASCAR season is one of the more popular and longest of any American-based sports. Their season typically begins with the Daytona 500 in February, and there will be 26 races throughout the regular season. There are other Crown Jewel races throughout the season as they are the major events throughout the year: the Daytona 500, the Coca-Cola 600, the Brickyard 400, and the Southern 500.
The season will have an All-Star Race halfway through the regular season, and then once the 26 races are concluded, the top 16 drivers in terms of points acquired from their finishes throughout the season will compete in the postseason.
The schedule is the same every year, with the race always being on Sundays.
Understanding NASCAR Schedule
NASCAR odds can be a little difficult to understand at times as it is similar to golf, where choosing a winner is selecting from a large field. Most sportsbooks have the option to choose a driver to finish top-10 in a race or even to make the NASCAR Playoffs.
The schedule helps out, and seeing what event is coming up can help you understand what driver excels at it. These races can have some difference in distance a driver has to drive in, making it different for each event. Some drivers are better at 500 miles compared to 600, so they will have a better chance of winning the Dayton 500 than they would the Coca-Cola 600.
The NASCAR picks are also going to be a little easier as you can go off of history and see which driver has the chance to win. The schedule will tell you everything about an upcoming race, and that means you can really dive into it to understand which driver and teams have a competitive advantage inside of the car.
