Time For Atlanta Motor Speedway
Last weekend’s race at Road America was quite thrilling with Ty Gibbs eventually edging out a win ahead of Kyle Larson and Josh Berry. It was a somewhat unexpected ending to the race, though we expected Berry to do well.
Now the question remains: Who will impress on the Atlanta track, and which drivers should we bet on at the offered NASCAR odds for this weekend?
Allmendinger Leads The Way (Again)
A.J. Allmendinger did not show the form we expected from him last weekend at Road America, but he did well and ran near the front. Unfortunately, Allmendinger suffered a pit road penalty, which left him deep in the pack and eventually saw him end the race in sixth –- marking the sixth race of his last seven in which he did not place inside the top 5.
Nevertheless, there is a good reason why online gambling sites have him priced as his favorite at Atlanta.
Allmendinger has been one of the most consistent drivers. Over the season, Allmendinger has placed outside of the top nine only once, while his worst finish came in Concord (19th).
“You have everything on that race track, long straightaways, and really fast corners,” Allmendinger said about Atlanta.
“The carousel is incredibly fast; Turn 1 is incredibly fast. But you also have big brake zones, like into Turn 5 and into Canada Corner.”
Allmendinger has solid finishes on superspeedways, including second at Daytona, third in Atlanta, and third at Talladega. He couldn’t score a victory in either of them, but the three podiums clearly show that Allmendinger is comfortable driving on superspeedways which should come in handy this weekend.
Don’t Sleep On Hill
Austin Hill travels to Atlanta in eighth place on the NASCAR Xfinity Series ladder, but he has found his stride in time for us to consider him a contender and a solid pick for anyone who wants to bet online.
Hill hasn’t won a race since Daytona but is known as a driver who does well on superspeedways.
Looking back, Hill finished first at Daytona and second in Atlanta. He crashed at Talladega, which worsened his average, but there are most stats to look at. Over Daytona, Atlanta, and Talladega, Hill’s average running position was fifth, sixth, and fifth – which ranks him first across all three races,
And despite all that, Hill is priced as high as +750 for the upcoming race, which is arguably a bit too high.

2022 Alsco Uniforms 250 Prediction
A.J. Allmendinger and the freshly crowned winner Ty Gibbs lead the outright betting markets, which sounds about right. However, even though both are more than capable of winning the upcoming race, we have to side with Austin Hill at +750.
Hill is easily one of the best drivers on the superspeedways of 2022. You can’t go wrong backing either Allmendinger or Gibbs, but the value is with Austin Hill,
