NASCAR Cup Series Ambetter Health 400 Betting Preview

Spread the Word:

A rain-delayed Daytona 500 gave us one of the wildest endings at a NASCAR event. With eight laps to go, a wreck took place among the leaders that ended up involving a total of 22 cars, and it wiped out a number of the late-race favorites. Joey Logano was running the best of all the drivers, and he was out. So was Denny Hamlin, Brad Keselowski, Ryan Blaney, and last year’s winner, Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

A final wreck on lap 199 ended the race with William Byron in the lead, and with a +1800 win for Byron bettors.

Byron won a Cup Series-high six races in 2023, and he started off 2024 with his first Daytona 500 victory. And he now heads to Atlanta, where he won last July.
