2022 NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs Betting Guide

By Jeff Stinger

The final race of the NASCAR Cup Series regular season concludes at the Daytona International Speedway. After that, we are off to the playoffs. Darlington Raceway plays host to the first race of the Round of 16. As the knockout stage thins the herd to the Round of 8 in October, the highly anticipated Championship Race concludes the 2022 campaign at Darlington Raceway on November 6.

Before the next stage of the calendar gets underway, Nitrobetting gets you acquainted with the mechanics of how to bet on the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series playoffs.

How to Bet on the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs

Playoff format

The playoff field starts with 16 drivers in the Round of 16 with the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. Four drivers are eliminated from the championship fight after the first round with the rest moving onto a Round of 12. Four drivers are eliminated in the next three races with the rest advancing to the Round of 8. Ultimately, the Championship 4 decides the winner of the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season.

There are four playoff rounds. The first three rounds feature three races. The last four playoff drivers are eliminated at the end of these rounds. After the first nine playoff races, the tenth event introduces a Championship 4 round–a single winner-take-all contest. Take note that race winners in the first three rounds automatically secure a spot in the next, and the rest of the field is settled based on a driver’s playoff points.

Betting on the playoffs

Learning how to bet on the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs is no different from betting on regular-season races. Nitrobetting provides odds for each playoff race alongside futures markets.
