Active Pest Control 200 Picks
The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series runs the Active Pest Control 200 later this afternoon. Here are some drivers we like to contend.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Kyle Busch is the favorite to win this race, as he has odds of +160. Other short odds to win are Chase Elliott (+400), Matt Crafton (+650) and Johnny Sauter (+700). The Active Pest Control 200 takes place today at 4:49PM ET from Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Kyle Busch is basically a must-pick when competing in the Truck Series. He won two of the four races he competed in last year and is a two-time winner of this very event as is. Busch is the most credentialed driver in this race and should likely win.
Matt Crafton is a former winner of this race, taking the title in 2015. He had a strong showing in most races last year and ended up second in the series. Given his strong history and consistency in the series, I like him to win if Busch does not.
Timothy Peters is a dark horse with 9/1 odds today, but I think he has good value. While he was winless, he still contended in most races and finished fourth in the series. He also placed third in this race last year. He is certainly capable of winning, as he had multiple wins in 2015 and 2013, so last year was somewhat of an anomaly.
