Ticket Galaxy 200 Picks
The NASCAR Xfinity Series will wave the green flag for the Ticket Galaxy 200 later today. Here’s some drivers we like to contend for the victory.
According to the latest oddsmakers, Ryan Blaney is favored to win this event, as he has +180 odds. Other short odds to win are Erik Jones (+300), Alex Bowman (+600) and William Byron (+600). The Ticket Galaxy 200 takes place today at 3:30PM ET from Phoenix International Raceway in Avondale, Arizona.
Ryan Blaney has been too good to pass up when he competes in the Xfinity Series this year. Blaney has two wins in 2017 while also finished second in six other races as well as third place in two races. Out of 13 races he has competed this year, Blaney has finished in the top 5 in 12 of them.
William Byron is listed with +600 odds today and I think there is some good value for him. Byron has three wins this year, his first year as an Xfinity Series driver. He also has finished in the top 5 in seven other races. One of those top-5 finishes was in Phoenix, where he placed fourth. He should have plenty of confidence coming to this track and I think he will compete for the victory.
Christopher Bell has +800 odds for this race, which is good value for the Truck Series regular. He has competed in just six Xfinity races in the 2017 season, but his last three have seen him finish sixth or better. That includes a win in Kansas as well. Bell is building some momentum in this series and he can build on that today at Phoenix, a track where he has experience from his Truck Series days.
