If bettors want to stay away from picking the winner, there are many other prop bets on the Coca Cola 600 from head to head matchups and top-3 finishers available.
While the odds are lessened, bettors can rely on a driver to “show” rather than just win, in an effort to increase the winning percentage.
Kyle Busch (+125) is always a smart play, despite the low payout. Busch is the favorite for a reason, and bettors can hedge their bet with some dark horses as well.
Last year’s pole winner, William Byron (+600), finished in ninth but could find himself near the top of the standings at the end of the race.
Other drivers to consider include Alex Bowman (+225) and Brad Keselowski (+300). Both of these drivers were leading the pack after Stage 2 last year, showing their ability to take the lead.
More drivers are listed at legal sports betting sites, where longshot odds extend past +10000.
No matter which way a bettor decides to lean, getting a futures bet, or two, in before the race starts only helps the race become more exciting. Once the Coca Cola 600 starts, bettors can hedge their bets during live NASCAR betting.
