The 2013 season of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series has hit almost the halfway point now, and although many of the sports betting fans interested in it will have already placed their outright bets on the winning driver, there will also be those who are still deciding who to put their money on. At the moment Jimmie Johnson looks the man in control, as he is the favourite with the bookmakers and also leads the NASCAR standings, but with a number of races left this season that can all change. So who should you consider putting money on?
Johnson certainly can’t be ignored – his odds of 23/10 and his thirty point advantage at the top of the table – both prove that. Obviously as the favourite any return on a Johnson bet would not be as lucrative as risking a bet on an outsider, simply because the odds are lower. The driver currently second in the table is Carl Edwards, and you can get odds of 16/1 on him, which might suit a more adventurous NASCAR betting punter – while the bookies’ second favourite is Matt Kenseth; currently 82 points off the lead. This would be risky, but Kenseth has shown strong form, with his three wins the same as Johnson’s record, and you can get 11/2 on him. What this demonstrates is that there are lots of issues to consider when it comes to NASCAR betting, and perhaps this is why some motor racing betting fans prefer to play casino games like Motor Slot Speed Machine instead.
After all games like this five reel video slot are a comparatively simple way to combine a love of motor sports and betting, with this particular game being based around motor biking. For example you trigger the game bonuses when you make 1000 points from normal game play, and the bonus game features a race involving three different coloured motor bikes. There are also other motor sport themed slots in Jackpot City. You have to choose a bike to bet on, and if your choice finishes second or first, you win a prize. Every aspect of Motor Slot Speed Machine is this easy to grasp, but the slot is also exciting, and the top jackpot it offers of $50,000 is one that can stand against any slots game on the market.
