Coca-Cola Firecracker 250 Picks
The NASCAR Xfinity Series drives under the lights at Daytona tonight for the Coca-Cola Firecracker 250. Here are some drivers we like to contend for the win.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Joey Logano is the favorite to win this race, as he has +375 odds. Other short odds to win are Elliott Sadler and Justin Allgaier, who each have +750 odds to win. The Coca-Cola Firecracker 250 takes place tonight at 7:30PM ET from Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Joey Logano is the biggest name in tonight’s field and you can’t really pass him up tonight. He won this very race back in 2011 and had a top-5 finish last year at Daytona. Logano has competed in just four Xfinity Series races this year, winning once in Las Vegas while finishing in the top 3 in two other races. Logano has won multiple races in the previous two years, so this seems like the race for him to do it again this year.
Justin Allgaier is another driver I like to contend. He struggled at Daytona earlier this season, placing 30th, but he was second in this very race a year ago. This season, Allgaier has one win and a pair of runner-up finishes. With this field lacking in many big names, I think he should be near the front of the pack all night.
Erik Jones has +900 odds for tonight’s race, but I think he is a good dark horse option. He has won two races already this year and finished in the top-5 in three others. His only two finishes outside the top 5 came from car trouble or a wreck. If he stays out of trouble, he should make a run at winning tonight.
