Nascar Wager Talk

i talked to Darren about having a thread that looks into the gambling aspect of picking drivers and he said go for it.
with sportsbooks opening up around the country as well as fanduel and draftkings having sportsbooks in certain states, i thought we could put some monopoly money on the line and keep track of it in a thread.
the following is for entertainment purposes only.
i would suggest that you never bet big on nascar, but we'll try and have a little fun.
with 13 races to go in the season, we'll pick 3 head to head matchups each race and FAKE WAGER $50 on each outcome.
13 races times 3 wagers a race times $50 per wager would be a $1950 bankroll if you went 0 for 39 in your wagers
5dimes.eu has a bunch of Nascar head to head matchups as well as other prop bets.

we'll round up to a starting bankroll of $2000 and make 3 wagers for Saturday @ $50 each.
wager #1 (reddick +115) over (bell -145)
wager #2 (johnson -115) over (almirola -115)
wager #3 winning car number (over 11.5 +100) / (under 11.5 -120) (under 11.5) i'll root for harvick / keselowski / kurt busch / elliot / almirola / and hamlin
i'll try and figure out how to post all the wagering options without typing them all out.
it's not letting me copy and paste the rather large page as of now.

we got off to a good start hitting all 3 selections for the Saturday race.

we'll round up to a starting bankroll of $2000 and make 3 wagers for Saturday @ $50 each.
wager #1 (reddick +115) over (bell -145) WINNER
wager #2 (johnson -115) over (almirola -115) WINNER
wager #3 winning car number (over 11.5 +100) / (under 11.5 -120) (under 11.5) WINNER

wager #1 bet 50 -- cash 50 + (57.50 profit) = 107.50
wager #2 bet 50 -- cash 50 + (43.50 profit) = 93.50
wager #3 bet 50 -- cash 50 + (41.67 profit) = 91.67
bet $150 -- cash $292.67 (profit for the day = $ 142.67)
bankroll started at $2000 now at $ 2,142.67

i'll see what we can find for Sundays race and try to post them by 3pm eastern

Sunday results
well we got smoked losing all 3 wagers...
all 3 wagers for Sunday Dover race will be for $50 each
wager #1 (logano -135) over (johnson +105) LOST
wager #2 (kurt busch -120) over (bowman -120) LOST
wager #3 (odd number car wins -125) over (even number car wins +105) LOST
bet $150 - cash $ 0

the bankroll started the weekend at $2000 and now drops down to $1992.67
so we are now minus $7.33 for the experiment.
next week at Daytona is a wagering nightmare with smashem crashem, but we'll find 3 more wagers and hope.
as always, gamling is like a heavyweight fight.
you take a pounding in some rounds and if you survive and win, it's well worth it.

for Richmond we cashed 2 of the 3 tickets.
we now stand at 8 winning wagers and 8 losses, so always remember - Don't bet much on plate tracks. (n)
Dover Saturday race 3W - 0L
Dover Sunday race 0W - 3L
Daytona 0W - 3L
Darlington 3W - 1L
Richmond 2W - 1L
Our Richmond wagers...
wager #1 Sat 9/12 7553 Clint Bowyer #14 +110 7:30PM 7554 Aric Almirola #10 -140 LOST
wager #2 Sat 9/12 7581 Christopher Bell #95 -130 7:30PM 7582 Cole Custer #41 +100 WON CASH $100.00
wager #3 Sat 9/12 7591 Matt DiBenedetto #21 +100 7:30PM 7592 Alex Bowman #88 -130 WON CASH $ 88.46
so we wagered $150 and cashed $188.46 for a weekly profit of $38.46
Bankroll now stands at $1880.59 heading to Bristol.

Feeling good about the 2 live future wagers for the Cup Championship with (Keselowski +900) and (Truex +860)

hoping the smashem crashem doesn't get me next week.

for those of you who have ever been to Bilox Mississippi and visited the Palace Casino (they take Nascar bets there)
you may never get to go there anytime soon thanks to the Hurricane that just rolled thru in the last 24 hours.
