NASCARâs weekly schedule makes it unique from a betting perspective. Odds typically open early in the week, go on and off the board multiple times for practice and qualifying, then finally open again for good the night before or morning of the race.
This is true for 35 points races on the 36-race schedule, with NASCARâs premiere event, the Daytona 500, being the lone exception.
Because the Great American Race is the first event of each new NASCAR Cup Series season, oddsmakers can post odds weeks, and even months, in advance.
And since this race is the most popular NASCAR betting event of the season, sportsbooks are certainly incentivized to do so.
Odds as of Dec. 25 at 2 p.m. ET and via FanDuel, where Action Network users get a risk-free bet up to $500.
With 2020 Daytona 500 odds already available, hereâs a 75-1 longshot Iâm betting almost two months ahead of the Great American Race.
