2022 NASCAR Truck Series Odds: Talladega 250 Betting Favorites and Analysis

Written by on September 29, 2022

While the other two series in NASCAR still have a way to go before a champion is crowned, the Truck Series is now down to the final 3 races of the season. Yes, the playoffs are in full swing, with time running out for those sitting below the line that will cut off the final four. The only thing that we know for certain is that Ty Majeski will be in that final group, as he picked up the win in the first race of the Round of 8. The other 3 spots are still up for grabs, so it’s going to be a hectic couple of races before we get to that final four. This weekend, the drivers will be in Talladega for the next race on the schedule. It’s time to take a look at who’s on top right now so you can get ready to make your bets against the NASCAR Truck Series Odds.

NASCAR Truck Series Betting Preview for Talladega 250 Race | Motor Sports

Ty Majeski

Sometimes in sports, you have to say that timing is everything. Majeski went through the regular season without picking up a win, although he was top 5 in a regular basis, saving his first win for the playoffs. As mentioned earlier, that win was enough to vault Majeski into the final 4, with the question now being whether he will rest on his laurels or push hard to build some momentum as he waits for the final race of the season. I’d be on the fence about playing him to win this weekend give that it is his first run at Talladega at this level. 

Chandler Smith

All you can do as a driver is try to improve on what you delivered the season previous. Last year, in his first full season with the Truck Series, Smith made it to the Round of 8, but failed to make it into the final race of the season with a chance to win. He will be looking to do that this time around and he is very much in position to do so. Smith has a couple of wins on the season, so he certainly has the talent to go on and win it all, but to do that, he is going to need a better showing than his 19th place finish at Talladega last season. Not so sure he wins here, but an improved run is a good bet.

Zane Smith

Through his first 2 seasons in the Truck Series, Smith has been about as consistent as you can get, finishing 2nd overall in both seasons. He is very much in position to take that next step and win a championship, and while he has 3 wins on the season, it has been a minute since his last checkered flag. That said, Smith has been consistently among the leaders, landing on the podium in 6 of his last 9 races. Talladega has not been kind to him, but perhaps he can change that this weekend.

Stewart Friesen

If the Round of 8 were to end today, it would be Friesen moving on. There are, though, still 2 more races to come before that final cut and Friesen is far from safe in that #4 spot. He has just 1 win on the season and is not someone that I would immediately think of wagering on this weekend. His previous runs at Talladega have not been great, so I think he has to go into the dark horse category for this race.
