Betting on NASCAR 2013

Betting on NASCAR 2013

At one point it appeared as if Jimmie Johnson might run away with this season’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, but in recent weeks his lead at the top of the standings has been pegged back somewhat. He is still in a commanding position, but with the season not due to end until November, the thirty point cushion he enjoys at the top will surely not be wide enough for him to be able to rest on his laurels. Betting on NASCAR 2013 has been underway for months now, but with nearly three months of the season gone, who are the drivers who could realistically compete with the 7/1 favourite Johnson for the Series?

Certainly the driver just below him in the standings – Carl Edwards – must be considered a genuine contender. You can get odds of 10/1 on him with the bookies, and he will attract plenty of gambling interest at that price, although it should be noted that he has won only one race so far this season. This could be why he is behind the likes of Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch in the odds reckoning – despite being ahead of them in the standings – as they have won three and two events respectively this season, indicating that they have the speed and the winning mentality. All of these different factors should be considered before betting on the winner of NASCAR 2013, but if you are still unsure you might find a motor racing online casino game a bit more congenial.

One of the best of these games, found at Lucky Nugget, is Motor Slot Speed Machine, which is a slot with five reels and a jackpot of $50,000. Like most slots games this one can be played very cheaply, with $0.05 coins suitable for using on it, and it presents a very good chance of a payout – thanks to the presence of a wild reel icon (the speedometer). The other reel icons are equally motor sport related, including motorcycle gloves, petrol pumps, helmets and traffic lights, while the game bonus features a race between three motor bikes, offering a prize to those able to pick a bike that finishes second or first – which should be great fun for any motor sports fans.
