Rinnai 250 Predictions
The NASCAR Xfinity Series will kick off the racing weekend on Saturday afternoon. Who are the drivers we like to get the win in the Rinnai 250?
According to the latest oddsmakers at YouWager, Joey Logano is the favorite in this race, as he is getting +200 odds. Other short odds to win are Kevin Harvick (+275) while four others are listed with +1200 to win. The Rinnai 250 takes place Saturday at 2PM ET from Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia and will air live on FS1.
Joey Logano is looking to claim his first win in this event, but he did finish second the last time he competed in 2015. Logano had a Daytona run to forget, finishing 34th last weekend. However, he was a top-10 driver in all but one of his Xfinity races last year. Look for Logano to get back to contending on Saturday.
Kevin Harvick has won this event four times and could make it a fifth on Saturday. He also finished fourth in the race last year. In six Xfinity Series events a year ago, Harvick finished sixth or better in all of them. While he didn’t grab a victory, he should be in the mix on Saturday. This is a track he is very comfortable at, so I look for him to be the driver to beat.
Elliott Sadler is one of the drivers with 12/1 odds and I think he can come away with a win in this race. He is a veteran driver that finished fifth in this race a year ago. He also racked up 12 top-5 finishes in the 2017 season. While he wasn’t able to get a win last year, he had three wins in 2016, so he knows how to get victories. After a runner-up finish last weekend at Daytona, I like Sadler to make another push for the win on Saturday.
