We’re expecting the usual selection of NASCAR prop bets to appear as Sunday’s start time approaches, but as of this writing, there are none on the boards.

While money line odds for NASCAR winners are profitable, they are often too risky for most seasoned bettors. That’s why it is a surprise that Daytona 500 prop bets have yet to debut as the narrower odds provide easier paths to victory.

Speaking of victory, any bets on the Daytona 500 will need to be placed in advance of the final lap, so don’t miss the big race on Sunday. Below are the details for tuning in to the Daytona 500 this weekend.
