What’s The Best Odds For NASCAR Betting?

For a long time it seemed as if Jimmie Johnson was going to run away with this year’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, but Johnson was gradually pegged back, and then overtaken by Matt Kenseth. Losing now would be unthinkable for Johnson (and those who put bets on him with bookmakers earlier in the season, but at this point that is a very real possibility, with just six races left in the series. So at this point who would be a good driver to consider putting down your money on?

Well at this stage it does seem to be more or less a straight battle between Kenseth and Johnson. Third placed Kevin Harwick is twenty-five points off the pace and, although that is not completely insurmountable, it is hard to see him overtaking both of the other drivers before the end of the season. You can get 14/1 on Harwick, which may seem realistically low odds, but when you consider that Johnson is rated 10/13 by the bookies (with Kenseth 11/10) it becomes clear how overwhelmingly they are favoured. The problem for those who have not bet on NASCAR yet is that these odds are so low that they don’t offer much financial incentive, so playing at an online casino UK motor sports themed slot might actually be more appealing at this point.

There are a few slot machine games at these sites that use motor racing as a theme, for example Motor Slot Speed Machine. This is a five reel, twenty pay line video slot, and the theme is motor bike racing. While it is not the only choice open to you, there are a number of bonuses that make it worth opting for this one – most notably the very healthy jackpot of $50,000. After all, this is a lot more money than you can realistically win betting on NASCAR at this stage, with the twenty pay lines ensuring a good payout chance even if the jackpot doesn’t come your way.
