While the Truck Series is already rolling with their playoffs, there are still a couple of regular season races remaining in both the Cup and Xfinity Series. This weekend, they will head to Richmond for the penultimate race of the season, with the final standings still to be decided before we get into the real serious business of the playoffs. There could still be a couple of changes in the final 12 in the Xfinity Series, but only of the drivers below the playoff line do something particularly dramatic in the final couple of weeks. For the drivers above the playoff line, it’s all about getting hot at the right time. Let’s look at a few drivers who might make an impact this weekend in the Go Bowling 250 so you can bet against the NASCAR Xfinity Series odds.

If you believe that history can repeat, then you might well be feeling very good about Austin Cindric’s chances of winning the Xfinity Series for the 2nd straight season. At this stage of the proceedings in 2020, he has 5 wins under his belt, the same number as he has right now. From that point forward, he did enough to keep making the cut before winning the final race of the season. He’ll be looking to have a smoother ride through the playoffs this time around, starting with a good showing in Richmond. They ran a doubleheader there last season, with Cindric running in the top 10 in both races. He has never been worse than 10th at that track, so he looks like a decent bet.
Over the past few weeks, Allmendinger has been rounding into the type of form that you want with the playoffs approaching. Allmendinger went on a run where he had a win and 3 2nd place finishes in 4races, but it all came to an end last weekend in Darlington. He ended up running 20th at a track where he usually performs well, so he will be looking to bounce back in Richmond this weekend. Since Allmendinger was only part-time in the Xfinity Series last year, he did not race in either of the Richmond races, but he did finish 29th when running on that track in the Cup Series.
There is no such thing as a lock in sports betting, but there are some trends that would suggest that they are there for the taking. We are all well aware how difficult it is to pick a winner for any NASCAR race, especially given all the things that can happen during a 250-mile run. That said, you need to take a look at Justin Allgaier as a serious betting option this weekend. Why? Well, because he won both races at Richmond last season and finished 4th on the track in 2019. While it has been a minute since he picked up a win this season, those stats cannot be ignored.
Haley is one of those drivers who is getting hot at just the right time, landing in the top 10, including a win, in 6 of his last 7 races. That has moved him into 4th in the overall standings. It should not be that surprising, though, as he made a big leap forward last season, finishing 3rd overall. He ran in the top 10 in both races at Richmond last season, including a 2nd place finish, so well worth a look this weekend.
