Pit Boss 250 (Xfinity Series) Predictions, Odds & Picks


The NASCAR Xfinity Series makes its first trip to a road course this season with the running of the Pit Boss 250 at the 3. 41-mile Circuit of the Americas on the outskirts of Austin, Texas.

Saturday’s race will be contested over 46 laps (156. 86 miles), with stage breaks scheduled after 14 and 30 laps. Kyle Busch was the winner of last year’s COTA inaugural event. However, he will not be racing in this weekend’s Xfinity Series.

AJ Allmendinger, Pure and Simple

We’re not saying that AJ Allmendinger can do it all. He’s proven he is capable of winning on oval tracks and he won the NASCAR Xfinity Series regular season title.

However, this shouldn’t be overlooked the fact that the No. 16 Kaulig Racing Chevrolet is without peer.

Six of Allmendinger’s 10 Xfinity Series victories–not to mention both his NASCAR Cup Series wins–have come on road courses. In good weather on the highly technical 20-turn Circuit of the Americas course, we believe Allmendinger’s consummate skills will prevail.

He’s co-favorite with pole winner Ty Gibbs at +300 via DraftKings Sportsbook. Gibbs is a fraud in the three previous races. However, we do not believe he will win this week.

Go with Allmendinger to win, and bet on him to beat Gibbs heads-up at -115.

Ringer Miguel Paludo can Contend, if he is patient

Miguel Paludo has unbeatable road-racing credentials. Four-time Porsche GT3 Cup Brasil champion.

His NASCAR appearances are rare, but he will make Saturday’s first of three road course starts for JR Motorsports. The Brazilian native is an aggressive driver, and he has the talent to work his way forward from the 17th starting position he earned in Friday’s time trials.

In the past, JRM Chevrolet was the driver of No. 88 JRM Chevrolet has had difficulty in tempering his aggression with patience. But we think the 38-year-old will bring newfound maturity to Saturday’s race and perform to the level of his talent.

He’s our longshot pick to win at +3000 via DraftKings, and we like him to run top-three at +400. We’re also betting on double-duty driver Bubba Wallace to finish in the top five at +300.

Running 2 Races This Weekend. Ross Chastain could be a pleasant surprise

Florida’s Ross Chastain has a better reputation as a watermelon grower than a road racer. He has not won any road race in the top three NASCAR touring series.

However, it looks like this will be a breakthrough year for the Full-Time Driver of the No. The Cup Series’ No. 1 Chevrolet. Chastain’s three Cup races for Trackhouse Racing have seen him finish third, second and then second.

Chastain was second in Saturday’s Xfinity Series race at Mario Gosselin’s DGM Racing. He will be next to Ty Gibbs, pole winner on the first row.

Based on the speed in the car and Chastain’s aggressive, fearless driving style, we think he’s worth a bet to win at +800 via DraftKings.
