Any of you who regularly wager on NASCAR know just how difficult it is to pick a winner on any given weekend. The reality is that every driver who starts a race has a shot at winning, as they are just all that good. That said, you can tend to narrow things down a little by looking at the current form of a driver and how well they have performed at a specific track in the past. When talking about the Xfinity Series, you also need to pay attention to the times when Cup Series drivers pop in for a race. The odds for that race change dramatically at the point, which is what we have going on this weekend in Atlanta with the Credit Karma Money 250. Let’s take a look at the current favorites for this one so you can bet against their NASCAR Xfinity Series odds.
NASCAR Xfinity Series Betting Odds Analysis for Credit Karma Money 250 at Atlanta
Kyle Busch (-150)
As mentioned at the top of this piece, the odds for races in the Xfinity Series look a little different when you get a Cup Series driver dropping in. This is especially true when it’s Kyle Busch, as he has made a history of dominating at this level when he races. He has already done it 4 times this season, winning all 4 of his runs in the Xfinity Series. Further making him look like the pick to make this weekend is the fact that he has also won in his last 2 runs at Atlanta when racing in the Xfinity Series. Sure, the odds are not the greatest, but he has proven to be a solid bet at this level.
Austin Cindric (+650)
While Busch may look about as close to a lock as it gets, there is a reason why they still need to run these races. All manner of things can go wrong over the course of a 250-mile race, allowing another driver to take control. The one who looks the most likely to cause the upset in Atlanta this weekend is Austin Cindric, who is the current leader in the driver standings. He has made it to the top by winning 4 of the 17 races to this point, which is all the more impressive when you consider that Busch has dropped in and won 4. If there is a negative here, it is that Cindric has not been great at Atlanta, with 7th being his best career finish.
Justin Allgaier (+800)
If you are looking for someone to spring the upset at a very good price this weekend, Allgaier may well be the driver to go with. He has been consistent all season long, picking up 2 wins along the way, and he also has a very decent history in Atlanta. In fact, Allgaier took the checkered flag at that track earlier this season. He has not finished worse than 6th in his last 4 runs in Atlanta.
AJ Allmendinger (+1000)
Allmendinger is perhaps the most experienced driver competing in the Xfinity Series right now and he has been using that to his advantage this season. He is currently sitting in 2nd in the driver standings, picking up 2 wins and finishing in the top 5 11 times in 17 races. He finished 5th in Atlanta earlier this season and won there last year, so he is definitely worth a look, especially at these odds.
