Pocono Green 250 Picks
The NASCAR Xfinity Series holds the Pocono Green 250 this afternoon. Here are some drivers we like to win this race.
This is the first time this race is being held. According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Kyle Busch is favored to win this race, as he has +175 odds to win. Other short odds to win are Erik Jones and Joey Logano, who each have +350 odds to win. The Pocono Green 250 takes place on Saturday at 1:18PM ET from Pocono Raceway.
You can’t pick against Kyle Busch when he’s competing in an Xfinity Series race. He has competed in six this year and has four wins with two runner-up finishes. He won six races last year in just 15 appearances. Look for Busch to push for another win today.
Erik Jones has been a series regular and had some success this year, picking up two wins and has a total of six top-5 finishes. Jones is coming off a bad showing last week and has typically bounced back nicely. After a 31st-place finish to start the year, he came back with a third-place finish the next race.
Kyle Larson has +600 odds for the race, but we think he can breakthrough and get the win today. He has three Xfinity wins in his career. He has placed in the top 5 in two of the six races he’s competed in this year. He has also run well at Pocono in his Sprint Cup career, placing 12th or better in four races.
