Drivin' for Linemen 200 Picks
The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will be competing tonight in the Drivin’ for Linemen 200. Here are the drivers we like to contend for the victory.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Christopher Bell is the favorite to win, as he has +160 odds. Other short odds to win are Johnny Sauter (+280), Matt Crafton (+450) and Chase Briscoe (+800). The Drivin’ for Linemen 200 takes place tonight at 8:30PM ET from Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Illinois.
Christopher Bell is having the best season in the Truck series. In seven races, he has two wins and a total of five top-5 finishes. He also is the defending champion of this race, which was the second of his career. I like Bell to push to be a repeat champion tonight.
Johnny Sauter has finished in the top 5 of this race the last three years and he also is having a very solid 2017 season. Sauter has one win and three runner-up finishes this year. He has placed eighth or better in his last six races. He should be right in the mix with Bell today.
Ben Rhodes is listed with +900 odds to win tonight, but I think he is a nice dark horse option. He was runner-up at this track a year ago, his best finish ever in his Truck Series career. He also is coming off back-to-back top-5 finishes, so he has some momentum building in his young career. I think he will continue to build on that tonight and possibly pick up the upset win.
