Last week was something a little different for NASCAR fans, as they got to watch their favorite drivers take on the road course at the Circuit of the Americas in Texas. It is back to business as usual this weekend, as we head to Charlotte for the penultimate round of races before we get to the annual All-Star event. In the Xfinity Series last week, we did not get to see too much movement at the top of the standings, mostly because Kyle Busch dropped in and won the road race. This weekend is an opportunity for the top driver to once again flex their muscles, so let’s take a look at the current top 4 heading into the Alsco Uniforms 300 along with their NASCAR Xfinity Series odds.
NASCAR Xfinity Series Betting Odds Analysis for Alsco Uniforms 300 Race
Austin Cindric +400
If you toss Cindric’s run at Darlington out of the equation, you are looking at a driver who has been consistently solid this season. Cindric comes into this weekend with the most wins (3) in the Xfinity Series this season, as well as a total of 8 top 5 finishes through the first 11 races. He has led for 399 laps this season, a number that no other driver even comes close to, all of which readily explains why he is sitting at the top of the NASCAR Xfinity Series driver standings and looking like the one to beat this season. Besides his great form this season, there is another reason why Cindric is worth a look this weekend, which is that he has finished 3rd in each of his last 3 runs at Charlotte.
Harrison Burton +800
It is probably strange to say that a driver sitting in 2nd in the driver standings would be disappointed with his performance thus far, but there is probably some frustration for Burton. That would come from the fact that he has yet to win this season and carry on the momentum from last year, where he won 2 of the final 3 races in 2020. As his current standing shows, though, he has been close more than once, landing in the top 10 8 times in 11 races. He has only had 2 runs at Charlotte in the Xfinity Series, with his best run coming last season, when he finished 9th.
AJ Allmendinger +650
Over the years, Allmendinger has been committed to the Cup Series and has only races sparingly in the Xfinity Series. He is fully committed to Xfinity this season, though, and very much looks like a championship contender through the first 11 races of the season. Allmendinger already has a win this year, taking the checkered flag in Las Vegas, while also remaining incredibly consistent from week to week. He has been in the top 5 7 times this season and looks like a very good bet this weekend. His last run at Charlotte in the Xfinity Series came in 2019 in a race that he won.
Daniel Hemric +1000
While Hemric is sitting in 4th in the driver standings, he still needs to be considered a longshot to win this weekend. That’s not just because he hasn’t won this season, but also because he is still seeking his first ever in the Xfinity Series. You do get the sense that the first one is coming, though, as he has had 4 podium finishes this season. Given that he ran 2nd in Charlotte in 2020, Hemric might just be worth taking a chance on.
