NASCAR Xfinity Series: Pocono 225 Odds and Betting Analysis of the Race

NASCAR Xfinity Series: Pocono 225 Odds and Betting Analysis of the Race

Written by on July 20, 2023

Slowly but surely, we are moving closer to the end of the regular season and the start of the playoffs. That said, there are 8 races still to come in the Xfinity Series regular season, so there is still plenty of time for the current top 12 to change before we get to the postseason. Tougher still for those on the outside looking in is that some of the drivers in the top 12 are essentially assured of a spot in the playoffs, so that window of opportunity is going to get smaller with each passing race. This weekend, the Xfinity Series drivers will be heading to the Pocono Raceway for the Explore the Pocono Mountains 225, so let’s take a look at the current Xfinity odds for this race.

Chase Elliott

NASCAR Xfinity Odds: +226

As is generally always the case when a Cup Series driver pays a visit, the bookies install them as a favorite. That is the case this weekend, with Chase Elliott dropping into the Xfinity Series ahead of his race with the Cup Series. He is in a tough position right now after missing 7 weeks through injury and suspension. He is not guaranteed to make the playoffs this season, so running with the Xfinity Series this weekend is good preparation for the bigger challenges to come. This is not a move that he makes very often, and over the last 4 seasons, Elliott has raced in the Xfinity Series 11 times and has failed to win each time.

Justin Allgaier

NASCAR Xfinity Odds: +450

While Allgaier is in his usual spot in the driver standings, which is near the top, he has not made a habit of winning races this season. In fact, he has just 1 win right now, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been good. Besides the win, Allgaier also has 7 other podium finishes on the season, so this is a driver that you should never count on when looking at wagering on the Xfinity Series. He finished 7th in this race in 2022, but I think we can expect better this time around, so a top 5 wager might not be a bad idea.

John H. Nemechek

NASCAR Xfinity Odds: +460

If you are interested in betting on the hot hand in the Xfinity Series, then you need to give a serious look at Nemechek this weekend. He has won each of the last 2 races, and he was 2nd in the race prior to those victories. In fact, he has been in great form all season long, finishing in the top 10 in 15 of the 18 races to this point in the season. At this stage of the proceedings, he looks like the man to beat, although we have seen drivers suddenly cold once things get closer to the postseason. Still, he is the favorite in my mind this weekend, regardless of the odds.

Cole Custer

NASCAR Xfinity Odds: +760

After a spell with the Cup Series, Custer is back full-time with the Xfinity Series, and he is making the most of his return. Custer is sitting 3rd overall after 18 races this season, with a pair of wins already under his belt. He did not have a good run in New Hampshire in the previous race, so he will be looking for a bounce back performance this weekend. He raced a few times at this level last season, including a run at Pocono, where he finished 10th overall.
