Chicagoland 300 Predictions
The NASCAR Xfinity Series is set to host the Chicagoland 300 later today. Here are some drivers we like to contend for the victory.
According to the latest oddsmakers, Kyle Larson is favored to win this race, as he is getting odds of 3/2 to win. Other short odds to win are Erik Jones (4/1), Ryan Blaney (4/1) and Daniel Suarez (13/2). The Chicagoland 300 takes place today at 3:30PM ET from Joliet, Illinois.
Kyle Larson is the best driver in the field today, as he is contending for a Monster Energy Series championship. This year in the Xfinity Series, Larson has three wins to his credit with four other top-5 finishes. He placed second in this race a year ago and in 2014. Larson is the man to beat today.
Erik Jones is the defending champion of this race. He also owns two wins in the series this year with five other top-5 finishes. Jones has been competing with the big boys this year as well and has finished in the top 10 in the last five Monster Energy Series races. He has been coming into his own on the track lately and should be able to make a push for a win tonight.
William Byron is coming into this track with +750 odds to win. I like Byron, as he is an emerging star in NASCAR. After a strong 2016 in the Truck Series, he has followed it up with three wins in the Xfinity Series this year. He also has five other top-5 finishes. Byron has finished in the top 10 in 11 of his last 13 races. Being able to stay near the front always gives him a chance to win. If Byron is able to get a little luck on his side, he will have a shot to win.
