NASCAR Xfinity Series: Sport Clips Haircuts VFW Help A Hero 200 Odds and Betting Analysis

Written by on August 31, 2023

While NASCAR is a rather large umbrella, the three major series that sit under it all work on their own schedule. The Truck Series playoffs have been ongoing for a couple of weeks, while the Cup Series playoffs will start this weekend in Darlington. The Xfinity Series, which is what we are focusing on here, still has a couple of more races to come before the first cut and the start of their playoffs, With that in mind, it’s perhaps no real surprise that we are seeing a few Cup Series drivers drop in to the Xfinity Series this weekend as they look to prepare for their opening race in the Round of 16. That has had an impact on the overall Xfinity odds for the VFW Help a Hero 200, so let’s take a quick look at the favorites.

Kyle Larson

NASCAR Xfinity Odds: +191

Make no mistake about it, every Cup Series driver dropping down this weekend wants to win, but they would probably also agree that simply getting a good race in before their big event is just as important. It is somewhat special to see Larson taking part in the Xfinity Series, as he really doesn’t drop down that often. In fact, he has just 1 race at this level in 2023, a race that he failed to win, finishing 3rd in the Sonoma Road Race. Prior to that, he had won 2 in a row in the Xfinity Series, so it is easy to understand why the bookies have him in as the favorite to win this weekend.

Denny Hamlin

NASCAR Xfinity Odds: +230

You have to go back to 2020 to find the last time that Hamlin raced in the Xfinity Series, and what you find when you take a look back is that he has not had a ton of success. He has raced just 3 times at this level since 2018, failing to take the checkered flag in any of those races. For Hamlin, you feel that racing here is more about getting a feel for the track as opposed to getting a win, but it’s never a bad idea to have a positive run before a massive race. He finished 1st and 2nd, respectively, in his last 3 Cup Series races on this track, so he is certainly in with a shot.

Kyle Busch

NASCAR Xfinity Odds: +570

Are we going to see Cup Series drivers sweep the top 3 spots in the Xfinity Series this weekend? The possibility of that happening is certainly there, but with the battle for playoff spots going on, this might not be the smooth sailing that many believe it might be. After sweeping all 5 races in he ran in the Xfinity Series last season, Busch has struggled this year, failing to win in 3 attempts at this level. He wins more often than not in the Xfinity Series, though, so it would be a mistake to rule him out.

Justin Allgaier

NASCAR Xfinity Odds: +670

Finally, we get to see a full-time Xfinity Series driver on the bookies board, and is it any real surprise that Allgaier is the man up among the favorites? Allgaier comes into this one on a bit of a high after winning his 2nd race of the season last weekend in Daytona. Making it back-to-back wins on Saturday is going to be tough when you consider the level of competition here, but taking Allgaier to finish top 3 or 5 might not be a bad idea.
