North Carolina Education Lottery 200 Picks

NASCAR Predictions: North Carolina Education Lottery 200 5/18/18

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series gets the racing weekend started tonight with the running off the North Carolina Education Lottery 200. Here are some drivers we like to contend for the win.

According to the latest oddsmakers, Kyle Busch is favored to win today, as he has +125 odds to win. Other short odds to prevail are Noah Gragson (+400) and Johnny Sauter (+550). The North Carolina Education Lottery 200 takes place tonight at 8:30PM ET from Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, NC.

16000 Kyle Busch +125

It’s actually surprising to see Busch not have shorter odds than this. He is a 7-time winner of this event and the defending champion. Busch is always the man to beat when he competes in the Truck Series. Out of three races this year, Busch has a win and a runner-up finish. I think he takes home his eighth win tonight.

16001 Noah Gragson +400

Gragson broke through with the win last week, besting Kyle Busch. That should give him a lot of confidence heading into tonight’s race. Gragson has three top-5 finishes on the year already and he finished in the top 10 in this race last year, his debut on the track in the Truck Series. I like Gragson to have another strong run tonight and give Busch a run for his money.

16004 Matt Crafton +1200

Crafton has won this race twice in his career, last doing so in 2016. The veteran of the series is seeking his first win of 2018, but he has three top-10 finishes and two top-5 finishes on the year. Crafton has been very steady at this track, finishing sixth or better in his last five races, including four top-5 finishes. He should be right in the mix again tonight and has some enticing odds for his great history at Charlotte.
