Much of the attention in the world of NASCAR is going to be on the All-Star Race this weekend in Texas. While that certainly makes sense, we should also not forget that for the Truck Series and Xfinity Series, it is very much business as usual. There are valuable points up for grabs this weekend, with both of those series racing on Saturday ahead of all the fun festivities that we can expect on Sunday. It is, as you would expect, a tight race at the top of the driver standings in the Xfinity Series, but will we see Austin Cindric knocked out of the top spot this weekend? Let’s take a closer look at the Alsco Uniforms 250 and the drivers considered to be among the favorites to win so you can get all set to place your bets against their NASCAR Xfinity Series odds.
NASCAR Xfinity Series Betting Odds Analysis for Alsco Uniforms 250 at Texas
Kyle Busch (-150)
Fans tend to fall into two distinct categories when it comes to Cup Series drivers competing in the Xfinity Series. For some, it is fun to see the top drivers come in and dominate, while others think it gets in the way of the competition at the top of the driver standings. Kyle Busch usually drops into the Xfinity Series a couple of times per season, and when he does, he is usually tough to beat. In his last 6 races in the Xfinity Series, Busch has won twice and has only missed being on the podium once. He has 1 race and 1 win in the series this season, so no real surprise why he is in as such a heavy favorite.
Austin Cindric (+500)
While Busch usually dominates when he drops into the Xfinity Series, he does not always win. There are a handful of drivers out there who are more than capable of finishing ahead of Busch, with current champion Austin Cindric sitting at the top of that list. It has become clear that Cindric is not about to give up the championship without a fight this season, as he is once again at the top of the driver standings after picking up 3 wins already. Texas is a track where Cindric always seems to be in the hunt. In the two races run there last season, he had a win and a 4th place finish.
AJ Allmendinger (+900)
This is a good weekend to bet on the Xfinity Series if you are of the belief that Busch can be beaten, as his presence has made the odds of the other drivers all the more tempting. Allmedinger has been the model of consistency this season, landing in the top 5 in 8 of the 13 races to this point, which includes a pair of wins. He is hot on the heels of Cindric, but given that this is his first full season with the Xfinity Series, we have little to go on in regards his performance at any specific track. His current form, though, suggests that he will be in the hunt.
Daniel Hemric (+1000)
After moving away from the Xfinity Series for a couple of seasons, Hemric is back and sitting among the leaders in the driver standings. That said, he is still looking for his first win at this level and is in a bit of a slump at the moment, so perhaps he needs to be considered a bit of a longshot this weekend. His best finish in Texas was a 10t back in 2018.
