Betting on the Indianapolis 500

by WagerHome Blog on May 24, 2024

The Indianapolis 500 is one of the best sporting events in the world, and it’s set to take place this weekend. Hundreds of thousands of fans will travel to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in order to watch the big race, and it’s sure to be an exciting day at the track.

Betting on auto racing is something that gets forgotten from time-to-time, but the biggest events always come with some great odds and betting lines. That is going to be the case this weekend as the Indy 500 will create a ton of excitement and energy. 

Instead of sitting back and placing wagers of your own, now is the perfect time to become your own bookie to accept wagers. That’s actually much easier than you would expect, and it would allow you to have this set up before the rest of the big races. 

Here is a look at an Indianapolis 500 preview, and how you can become your own bookie today. 

A Loaded Field

When looking at the field that is set for the 2024 Indianapolis 500, there are a ton of great drivers in the mix. Josef Newgarden is the defending champion of the Indianapolis 500, and he is one of the betting favorites at +500.

Scott McLaughlin is also a betting favorite at +500, and those two are expected to be running together all race long. While those two drivers are deserving of being a betting favorite, there are going to be others pushing hard as well. 

Will Power and Kyle Larson are next on the list at +700, and those are two drivers that have had a ton of success in 2024 already. Power and Larson will be looking to pull off a slight upset by coming up with a big win. 

Not only can you bet, or offer bets, on the outright winner of the Indianapolis 500, but there will be some other betting markets to explore as well. Betting odds on which driver will have the fastest lap will also be available, and that’s another great option to explore. 

Set Up a PPH Site

PPH stands for PayPerHead, and you are going to want to create one of those sites in order to begin your journey into being a bookie. There are going to be other steps as well, but you will have to cross this off your checklist before moving into the other phases. 

Fortunately, WagerHome.com is ready to help you get this journey started and they will provide you with a ton of assistance along the way. It’s not that difficult to set up a website on your own, but you want to be able to market it in a way that will attract betting action. 

If you are able to get your site set up, you can then start accepting wagers on the Indianapolis 500 as opposed to making those wagers. There are some other big races coming throughout the year, and this will be a nice test run.

Pennzoil 400 Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on March 1, 2024

The 2024 NASCAR Cup Series Championship is now underway, and there have already been two races that have taken place. It’s been a great start to the season, and the excitement is only going to continue as the action heats up.

This weekend is the Pennzoil 400, and it’s another of the extremely popular races on the NASCAR Cup Series Championship circuit. Not only will the action on the track be terrific to follow, but there will also be some great betting options available. 

Betting on NASCAR continues to become more and more popular, and there is actually a new way for you to get involved. Instead of sitting around and making wagers, you can actually become your own bookie. 

Running your own PayPerHead site has become an option that is more widely available, and there are tools that can help you get started right away. With many more months of NASCAR action set to come, now is the perfect time to get your site set up.

Win With WagerHome

There is a way for you to set up your own PPH site, but you are likely going to run into some frustrating moments along the way. Instead of going through that hassle, it’s better to simply let WagerHome.com get you all set up.

WagerHome has been working with people for years, and it will provide all of the tools needed in order to set up a great PPH site. This is the path that you will want to take if you are going to become your own bookie as it will give you peace of mind throughout the entire process. 

Not only is WagerHome going to work with you to get your site completely set up, but you will also get some help along the way. If you ever come across some issues then you can simply reach out and get the help that you need.

Even though the Daytona 500 is one of the biggest NASCAR races of the season, there is still plenty of time to get in on other NASCAR action. 

Some Great Bets to Offer

For some reason, NASCAR and other motorsports doesn’t get the popularity as others when it comes to what a great betting option it is. Most NASCAR bettors would agree that this is a great opportunity to cash in, but you are now going to be on the other side of the equation. 

Instead of focusing on trying to make NASCAR betting picks, you can turn your attention to offering the best wagering options around. WagerHome will help you get your site established, and it won’t be long before people are coming to your site. 

There is still plenty of time to get your PPH site up and running since the NASCAR Cup Series is really just starting to heat up. While offering betting odds for the winner each weekend is going to be one option, there are other ways to accept wagers. 

The power will be in your hands once you get your PPH site up and running, and it won’t take long before you realize the earning potential that is available.

NASCAR Cup Series Championship

by WagerHome Blog on October 31, 2023

It began nine months ago with “The Great American Race” – the Daytona 500. The NASCAR Cup Series concludes this coming Sunday with the most important race of year, the Cup Series Championship at Phoenix Raceway.

At least it’s the most important race of the year for four of the drivers. But you do not need to be one of the four drivers racing for the championship to win this race. But it has worked out that way in each of the last three years that this has been the final and deciding race.

In 2020 Chase Elliott won this race, and the Championship. In 2021 Kyle Larson did the double. Last year it was Joey Logano.

Odds to Win Cup Series Championship

  • Kyle Larson (+150)
  • William Byron (+250)
  • Ryan Blaney (+250)
  • Christopher Bell (+300)

The last three weeks for Ryan Blaney has been on quite the ride. He was disqualified three races ago in Las Vegas, dropping him well below the cutoff line for the Championship 4. But then the qualification was overturned, he finished as the runner-up at Miami two races ago, and he won at Martinsville in this race to punch his ticket to the final.

Blaney finished last season in eight place, and has a Cup Series-high finish of seventh in 2021.

William Byron was the other new qualifier at Martinsville, advancing as the highest ranked non-winner. He was the Cup Series sixth place finisher in 2022, his personal best finish. Denny Hamlin led for 156 laps, but his third place finish left him six points behind Byron, and out of the Championship 4. When Hamlin won here in 2019 it was not yet the final race of the season, and he did not win the Championship.

Kyle Larson is the favorite to emerge from next Sunday. He qualified for the Championship 4 with a win at Las Vegas in the Round of 8 opener. In the last three seasons, beginning with his championship-winning run in 2021, Larson has won 17 races and he has 57 top-five finishes. He finished fourth at Phoenix Raceway earlier this season.

Quaker State 400 Betting Preview

Christopher Bell won at Homestead, putting him into the Championship 4. He finished the season in third place last year with three race wins. This season he has just two wins, but he’s been in the top-10 a total of 19 times, including the race at Phoenix in March.

Pay Per Head Software

One final weekend of NASCAR betting, as well as betting on the World Series. But full weekends of NFL and college football, and a full season of the NBA and NHL are still to come. It’s a lot for a single independent bookmaker to keep track of. But with a top pay per head software provider lending a hand, it’s the most profitable time of the year.

NASCAR All-Star Race Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on May 18, 2023

NASCAR is back in Wilkesboro for the first time since 1996, and the NASCAR All-Star Race is back to an easy to understand format.

If you are a full-time driver, a racer winner in 2022 or 2023, a Cup winner, or a past winner of the All-Star Race, you are one of the 21 drivers already qualified for the main event on Sunday night.

The Nascar All-Star Open is run earlier in the evening, and in that race 16 drivers will have a chance to drive their way into the All-Star Race. The top two finishers are in, and they will be joined by a third who gets in via a fan vote. Then we have 200 laps to the checkered flag.

There are no Nascar Cup Series points at stake this week in Wilkesboro, but the winner of the race does pull in $1 million.

Favorites to Win NASCAR All-Star Race

Kyle Larson (+650)
Joey Logano (+800)
William Byron (+800)
Kevin Harvick (+850)
Christopher Bell (+900)
Ross Chastain (+1000)
Kyle Busch (+1000)
Martin Truex Jr. (+1000)
Chase Elliott (+1100)
Denny Hamlin (+1100)

Kyle Larson won the Nascar All-Star Race in 2019 and 2021, and he is once again the favorite here. In those wins he was at Charlotte Motor Speedway in 2019 and the Texas Motor Speedway in 2021. Larson was only 20th last week, but he was the runner-up the week earlier in Kansas.

Nascar

William Byron is tied with Joey Logano at +800, and Byron was the winner last week. It was also his third straight top-five finish, and seventh top-five finish of the year. Logano hasn’t had a top-five finish in a month, when he was second at Martinsville. Last week in Darlington, he finished 18th.

Ryan Blaney is out of the top 10 in betting odds, but he is the All-Star Race defending champion. It was his one and only win in 2022, and he is still in search of his first win in 2023. A bet on Blaney to win is paying +1600.

All-Star Open Odds

You can make this Sunday’s racing a two-for by also wagering on the All-Star Open, the pre-race to determine which drivers will join the All-Star Race.

Josh Berry is the favorite at +350, and he’s followed by Ryan Preece and Ty Gibbs at +400. Berry had a second place finish at Richmond back in April. Preece’s top finish was 15th at Martinsville. Gibbs has three top-10 finishes this season.

At +450 is Aric Almirola, the only driver of the top four that has won a Cup race. He has three career wins, but this year his best finish was sixth at Martinsville a month ago.

Pay Per Head Software

The conference finals are underway in the NBA and NHL, the PGA Championship is being played this weekend, and baseball is in full swing. In order to keep up with all of the action, independent bookmakers need a quality pay per head software partner.

Food City Dirt Race Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on April 5, 2023

We had super speedways, road races, and the short track last week in Richmond. Now NASCAR races on the short track of Food City Dirt Race Bristol with a twist. We’re racing on dirt this Sunday at the Food City Dirt Race. It’s 250 laps on the half-mile track, and it’s an event unlike any other on the NASCAR Cup Series calendar.

Favorites to Win Food City Dirt Race

Kyle Larson (+550)
Tyler Reddick (+600)
Christopher Bell (+650)
William Byron (+1000)
Joey Logano (+1000)
Chase Briscoe (+1000)
Kyle Busch (+1200)
Ryan Blaney (+1500)
Ross Chastain (+1500)
Denny Hamlin (+1800)

William Byron was a back-to-back winner in the Cup Series the first two Sundays in March, and now Kyle Larson is hoping to duplicate that feat the first two Sundays in April. He won last week on the short track in Richmond, and he was a top-five finisher at this race last year, leading a total of 27 laps before finishing in fourth place.

Food City Dirt Race

Tyler Reddick was a winner a couple of weeks ago at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, the third road course win of his career. In two previous races on the dirt at Bristol, he had a seventh-place finish in 2021 and a second-place finish in 2022.

In that race last year, he was leading in the final lap, got spun out by Chase Briscoe, who was making a move for the win, and that allowed Kyle Busch to sneak in for the victory.

Speaking of Briscoe and Busch, the two other drivers involved in that wild finish at last year’s race, oddsmakers have them in the mix on the favorites board for this weekend’s rematch. Busch has nine total victories at Bristol, with that one coming on the dirt.

The other Food City Dirt Race winner on the dirt track in Bristol was Joey Logano, in 2021. He was a winner in Atlanta three weeks ago, and on the short track in Richmond last week, he finished seventh.

Best Value Bets

Daniel Suarez is paying +2500, and he deserves your attention. In 2021 he moved up from 18th at the start of the race, finishing in fourth place. Last year he was the 12th place finisher on the Food City Dirt Race, and he has led at this race for a total of 64 laps.

Michael McDowell is well down the board at +8000 to win the race, but he’s also paying +2000 for a top-three finish and +1000 to finish top-five. Why that matters to you in that he finished 12th here in 2021, and McDowell improved that to ninth in 2022. He’s also coming off a sixth-place finish last week in Richmond.

Pay Per Head Software

We have reached the great confluence of sporting events, with baseball, the NBA and NHL Playoffs, golf, NASCAR, and the NFL Draft. If you are an independent bookmaker trying to stay on top of it all, stop. Instead join forces with a pay per head software provider like WagerHome.com and let them do the heavy lifting.

WagerHome gives you a fully customizable website, access to their huge menu of sports and betting options, plus EZ Live Bets, and you get it all for just a small monthly per customer fee.

EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on March 23, 2023

The NASCAR Cup Series takes a break from being the left turn circuit this week by heading to the road course in Austin, Texas. The Circuit of the Americas is the place, a 20-turn 3.46-mile Grand Prix course that will test the best the drivers have to offer.

Normally this would be the domain of Chase Elliott, with the rest of the Grand Prix field racing to keep up with him. But he is out with a leg injury he suffered while snowboarding, meaning that this road race is wide open.

Favorites to Win EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix

Kyle Larson (+650)
Ross Chastain (+800)
Kyle Busch (+800)
Tyler Reddick (+900)
William Byron (+1200)
A.J. Allmendinger (+1200)
Daniel Suarez (+1500)
Christopher Bell (+1500)
Austin Cindric (+1500)
Ryan Blaney (+1800)
Alex Bowman (+1800)

Just how good has Chase Elliott been on Grand Prix road courses? He has 14 top-5 finishes since 2019, which includes seven wins and three runner-ups. So while his excellence on the road course, and COTA specifically, will be missed, his absence will add competitiveness.

Kyle Larson is the favorite in Elliott’s place. He was a runner-up in 2021 at this course, and on road courses in general he has four overall wins – twice at Watkins Glen and once each at Sonoma and Charlotte Roval. Larson has yet to win this season, but he does have two top-five finishes.

Grand Prix

Behind Larson are Ross Chastain and Kyle Busch at +800. Chastain won this race last year and was the fourth-place finisher in 2021. He also had a top-five finish at Road America last July. Busch hasn’t won on a road course since Sonoma in 2015, but he does have five top-five finishes since 2021.

Among the other favorites on the board, there have been top-five finishes at COTA for Tyler Reddick, A.J. Allmendinger, Christopher Bell, and Alex Bowman.

Best Value Bets

Chris Buescher is probably someone off your radar. He was 35th last week in Atlanta and 15th the week before in Phoenix. But in his final five road course races last year he finished second, sixth, 10th, ninth, and sixth. He’s paying +3000 to win and +425 to finish in the top-five.

Kimi Raikkonen is at +5000 to win here on Sunday, which is incredible value when you consider that he won on this course as an F1 driver and he’s racing this week for Trackhouse Racing, who won here last year.

This is only Raikkonen’s second start in NASCAR Grand Prix. But in his first start last year at Watkins Glen he was running in the top-10 when he got swept up in a wreck. He can win at this course, his team can win here, and he’s paying +650 to get a top-five finish.

Pay Per Head Software

The Sweet-16 is here, the NBA and NHL Playoffs are looming, and the Major League Baseball season begins in a week. If you are an independent bookmaker, stop leaving money on the table. Join forces today with a top pay per head software provider like WagerHome.com.

Ambetter Health 400 Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on March 16, 2023

It was a mistake, plain and simple. If Kevin Harvick had taken on just two new tires on his final pit stop, as the rest of the leaders did, as opposed to taking on four new tires, he would have won in Phoenix. His team made the miscalculation with just three laps of racing remaining. It was too little time for Harvick, even running slightly faster on the new set of tires.

He lost, William Byron won for the second consecutive week, and NASCAR has now ended the west coast start to its Cup Season by moving across the country to Atlanta.

Favorites to Win Ambetter Health 400

William Byron (+900)
Kyle Busch (+1200)
Kyle Larson (+1200)
Ross Chastain (+1200)
Joey Logano (+1200)
Ryan Blaney (+1200)
Denny Hamlin (+1400)
Christopher Bell (+1400)
Alex Bowman (+1600)
Brad Keselowski (+1800)
Bubba Wallace (+1800)

Atlanta gave us a wild race last spring – 46 lead changes and 13 cautions – as the repaving of Atlanta Motor Speedway caused it to race much faster and wide open. The winner last spring was William Byron, who comes into Ambetter Health 400 riding a two-race winning streak. Naturally he is the Ambetter Health 400 favorite, and a much-deserved one at that.

Ambetter Health 400

Kyle Busch had wins in Atlanta in 2008 and 2013, and he was the Ambetter Health 400 runner-up in 2021. But in the two races last year on the remade Atlanta Motor Speedway he finished 20th and 33rd.

Ross Chastain was the runner-up in both of the Atlanta races last year and he led for a total of 75 laps. He was only 24th in Phoenix last week, but he was ninth at Daytona and third in Fontana. He could very easily get a victory on Sunday.

Ryan Blaney is also one of the favorites to keep an eye on. He has led laps in five of the last six races in Atlanta for a total of 85 laps. He was a winner here in 2021 and he has four top-five finishes at this track since 2020. It’s also worth noting that Blaney just finished as the runner-up in Phoenix.

Best Value Bets

Chase Briscoe has been consistent at Atlanta, finishing 15th and 16th in the two races last season. But he’s coming off a seventh-place finish in Phoenix, he’s a driver on the rise, and a top-five finish this week pays +850. An outright win pays +3300.

Those are the same odds you can get for Erik Jones, who loves drafting tracks like Atlanta. He has finished in the top-10 in three of the last five drafting tracks, which includes a fourth-place Ambetter Health 400 finish here last July. At +850 for a top-five Ambetter Health 400 finish makes him an excellent value play.

Pay Per Head Software

We have racing and golf every week, the XFL has proven to be one of the best betting games in town, baseball is coming up, and there is that little thing going on right now called the NCAA Tournament.

It’s a lot to keep on top of for independent bookmakers, which is why you need WagerHome as your partner. Get a fully customizable website, access to WagerHome’s huge menus of sports and betting options, plus EZ Live betting. And get it now with your first four weeks absolutely free.

United Rentals Work United 500 Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on March 9, 2023

The United Rentals Work United 500 is a bit on the wordy side. So from here on out the NASCAR race this Sunday in Phoenix will simply be referred to as Phoenix.

The race United Rentals Work United 500 is the last of the west coast swing, and then we head back east to Atlanta. And if we’ve learned anything from the start of this Cup Series season, what you don’t know is far greater than what you think you know. We have had six races, and when William Byron crossed the finish line first in Las Vegas last weekend, he became the sixth different winner.

Favorites to Win Phoenix 500

Ryan Blaney (+650)
Kyle Larson (+850)
Joey Logano (+850)
Denny Hamlin (+900)
Christopher Bell (+900)
Kyle Busch (+900)
William Byron (+1000)
Kevin Harvick (+1000)
Martin Truex Jr. (+1000)
Ross Chastain (+1100)

Race favorite Ryan Blaney has never won at United Rentals Work United 500, but he’s been in the top-five a total of five times, including each of the last three races here. Just five months ago in Phoenix he was the runner-up.

Kyle Larson won here in November of 2021. He also has five other top-five finishes at this track. Larson was sixth at Daytona, and he was the runner-up last weekend in Las Vegas.

A strong case could be made for Joey Logano as the race favorite this week in Phoenix. His recent history here is better than anyone’s, with a win last November, a runner-up in 2021, and a win and a third-place finish in the two races held here in 2020. In his last seven races in Phoenix, Logano has led for 612 laps.

Best Value Plays

The intermediate flat track in Phoenix favors a particular type of driver and car, and two of those types of plays are paying particularly long odds – Aric Almirola (+4000) and Ryan Preece (+4500).

Almirola most recently won in New Hampshire, a similar type of track. That same season he finished in sixth place at Phoenix. Overall in his history at Phoenix, he has two top-five finishes, and seven times he has finished in the top-10.

Ryan Preece doesn’t have the history of Almirola, and he hasn’t had many good results in Phoenix. But he’s driving a Ford, just like Almirola, and Ford has led an inordinate amount of laps at Phoenix in recent years, including almost all of the laps last November.

Pay Per Head Software

March is one of the very best months for sports and sports betting, and it is the perfect time for independent bookmakers to maximize their daily take. NASCAR, golf is in full-swing and heading toward its first major of the year, basketball is hitting its crescendo, and Major League Baseball will start by the end of the month.

Pala Casino 400 Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on February 23, 2023

After a thrilling Daytona 500 on the east coast of Florida, NASCAR makes the trek across the country to Southern California for the Pala Casino 400.

The hubbub of Daytona is now in the rearview mirror, and we settle in for the marathon that is the Cup Series season.

Favorites to Win Pala Casino 400

Kyle Larson (+650)
Denny Hamlin (+800)
Chase Elliott (+800)
Ryan Blaney (+1000)
Kyle Busch (+1000)
Christopher Bell (+1000)
Tyler Reddick (+1200)
Ross Chastain (+1200)
Martin Truex, Jr. (+1200)
Joey Logano (+1200)

Kyle Larson only finished 18th at Daytona, but he is the favorite because of his history at Fontana. He was the winner here in 2022 and 2017, and he has been the runner-up two other times. Larson loves racing on this track, having led here for 138 laps in his career.

Pala Casino 400

Right on the heels of Larson are Denny Hamlin and Chase Elliott. Hamlin has four top-10 finishes at Fontana in his last five races. Hamlin was 17th at Daytona last Sunday. Elliott only made it through half of Daytons before he was taken out in an accident. At this track in 2020, he finished fourth.

Three other drivers are bunched up at +1000, including Christopher Bell, who finished third at Daytona. Bell had three wins last season on his way to a third-place finish in the Cup Series. He led for 20 laps last week.

Ryan Blaney, also at +1000, finished in eighth place at Daytona. In six races in Fontana, he has three top-10 finishes. Two years ago at this race, he led for a total of 54 laps, but ended up limping across the finish in 19th place.

Among the drivers at +1200, Joey Logano, who just finished as the runner-up at Daytona, was fifth at this race last year. In 15 career races at Fontana Logano, last year’s Cup Series champion, has seven top-5 finishes.

Value Picks

One of the forgotten drivers in the field is Austin Dillon, paying +4000. He was the runner-up at this race last year and in his three previous races in Fontana he had two other top-10 finishes.

A pair of +5000 drivers also deserve your Pala Casino 400 attention. The first is Aric Almirola, who has finished in the top-10 in each of the last two Pala Casino 400s. The other is none other than new Daytona 500 champion Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. Yes, it’s hard to win back-to-back starts. But Stenhouse finished in the top-10 at Fontana last year, and he’s clearly off to a great start in 2023.

Pay Per Head Software

We have NASCAR and golf every weekend, the NBA season is in its second half, and March Madness is just around the corner. If you are an independent bookmaker looking to maximize your profits, now is the time to join forces with a top pay per head software provider like WagerHome.com.

Daytona 500 Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on February 14, 2023

For those of you in a post-Super Bowl betting malaise, not to worry. The Super Bowl of NASCAR is coming this weekend with the 65th running of the Daytona 500 – the Great American Race.

It is the kickoff to the NASCAR Cup Series season, and it is the most prestigious race on the NASCAR schedule. Win here and your place in American auto racing history is secured. And the start of the Daytona 500 NASCAR season also helps fill the void of weekly Sunday betting, now that the NFL has shuttered for the next seven months.

Favorites to Win Daytona 500

Ryan Blaney (+1000)
Denny Hamlin (+1100)
Kyle Busch (+1200)
Chase Elliott (+1200)
Kyle Larson (+1400)
Joey Logano (+1400)
Ross Chastain (+1600)
William Byron (+1800)
Bubba Wallace (+1800)
Brad Keselowski (+1800)

Daytona 500

Ryan Blaney has never won the Daytona 500, but he did win at Daytona during the 2021 season in the Coke Zero 400. In 2022 he failed to take a checkered flag, but he did have a career-high 12 top-five finishes and he finished eighth in the Cup Series.

Right behind him is Denny Hamlin, and three-time winner of the 500. He took back-to-back wins in 2019 and 2020, and he was also the winner in 2016. He was wiped out of Daytona last year because of an accident, but overall his 2022 was very good. He finished with two wins, 10 top-five finishes, and fifth place in the Cup Series standings.

The winner of the Cup last year, Joey Logano, is tied for the fifth shortest odds at Daytona. He won this race in 2015, but hasn’t been very good on this track in recent years. He was 26th in 2020 after suffering an accident, he had another accident in 2021 that landed him in 12th position, and last year he crossed the finish line in 21st.

Best Value Bets

It’s the first race of the season, and no one really knows what to expect. And that means that some drivers come into the race carrying excellent value.

Michael McDowell won Daytona 500 race in 2021 and last year he finished seventh. But he’s paying +3500 because he finished last season without a single win. Still, a past champion, and recent champion, is really good value with those long odds.

Chris Buescher is also paying +3500, and he too has struggled on the circuit everywhere but Daytona 500. In 14 career starts on this track he has three top-five finishes, five top-10s, and just a year ago he won the Bluegreen Vacations Duel at Daytona.
