2023 NASCAR Trucks Series XPEL 225 Picks


Top Pick: Alex Bowman

Odds: Alex Bowman +600
Truck #, Team: No. 48 | Hendrick Motorsports
2022 Position: 16th

Bowman drive a truck at Atlanta Motor Speedway last week. But Alex did step into his car for the NASCAR Cup event.

The Hendrick Motorsports driver finished fourteenth. Bowman has driven well in the last five NASCAR Cup events.

He finished fifth at Daytona, eighth at the Auto Club Speedway, third at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and ninth at Phoenix Raceway before the fourteenth place finish last Sunday.

For sure, Bowman can get it done on Saturday. The NASCAR odds make Alex a much fairer play than backing Kyle Busch.

Second Pick: Zane Smith

Odds: Zane Smith +600
Truck #, Team: Nos. 36/38 | Front Row Motorsports
2022 Position: 49th

The 2022 NASCAR Truck Series XPEL 225 winner didn’t have a great time in Atlanta last Saturday. Smith finished twentieth.

But that’s okay. Zane won the truck series race at Daytona. He then finished a decent second at Las Vegas.

Not only that, but although he ended up twentieth at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Smith won the pole. Zane, for sure, deserves a look to win straight up. Also, like Bowman, Smith offers much better odds than Busch.

Third Pick: Kyle Busch

Odds: Kyle Busch +155
Truck #, Team: No. 8 | Richard Childress Racing
2022 Position: 13th

One of the reasons Busch is such a low-priced chalk to win the XPEL 225 is because he is driving so well on the NASCAR Cup Series.

Kyle won at the Auto Club Speedway. He finished eighth at Phoenix Raceway and tenth in Atlanta last Sunday.

But although Busch is driving great, NASCAR Cup Series form doesn’t always translate to winning the truck series event. In addition, Kyle finished third in this last year. So the odds to win on Saturday make him an underlay.

Top Underdog Play: Christian Eckes

Odds: Christian Eckes +2500
Truck #, Team: No. 19 | McAnally-Hilgemann Racing
2022 Position: 8th

In three NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series races this season, Christian Eckes has finished in the top ten in all three.

At Daytona, Eckes finished third after starting fourth. Two races back at Las Vegas, Christian finished sixth after starting twelfth.

Then last Saturday at Atlanta, Eckes won the race. Christian drove well in this last year, finishing sixth. For sure, Eckes can win. Also, the +2500 odds are more than fair.
