Sports Clips Haircuts VFW 200 Picks
The NASCAR Xfinity Series gets the racing weekend started this afternoon with the running of the Sport Clips Haircuts VFW 200. Here’s three drivers we like to contend for the victory.
According to the latest oddsmakers, Denny Hamlin is the slight favorite, as he is getting odds of +225 to win. Other short odds to win are Kevin Harvick (+375) and Brad Keselowski (+450). The Sport Clips Haircuts VFW 200 takes place today at 3:30PM ET from Darlington Raceway in Darlington, South Carolina and will air live on NBC.
52000 Denny Hamlin +225
Hamlin loves Darlington and it has shown in this series and the Cup Series. Hamlin is a five-time winner of this race and the defending champion. He also has won at Darlington in the Cup Series. Hamlin isn’t someone to compete in the Xfinity Series often. When he does, it typically leads to good things. He has finished first or second in this race the last three years and its hard to see him not placing in the top of the pack today as well.
52001 Kevin Harvick +375
Harvick is a big star to have competing in the Xfinity Series. He is clearly one of the best drivers in the world and now gets to compete against some of the up-and-coming drivers. That alone should put him in the mix. He has competed in four Xfinity races this year and has one win with another runner-up finish as well. He has placed in the top 5 of this race in two of the last three years.
52003 Christopher Bell +600
Bell is the Xfinity Series regular to look out for today. He has picked up three wins in the 2018 season and also has nine other top-5 finishes and four runner-up finishes. Bell just makes his way to the front regardless of the competition and track. He is making his debut at Darlington today, but I don’t think that will stop him from giving the Cup Series regulars a run for their money.
