Next Up, Dover International Speedway
The Xfinity Series heads to Dover International Speedway for the A-Game 200, the 10th race of the 2022 season, this Saturday. This race should be much easier to predict than Talladega, which is notoriously chaotic.
Though Dover has had a handful of surprise winners, we have found an excellent pick you might want to follow if you’re betting online on Xfinity Series.
Let’s check the latest news, stats, reports, and NASCAR odds for Xfinity: A-GAME 200. We’ve plenty of predictions for you to consider.
Favorites for a Reason
According to Xfinity odds for this weekend, Justin Allgaier heads to A-GAME 200 as the second favorite, which makes a lot of sense. Of course, some might argue it does not, seeing how Allgaier has yet to win a race this season; however, he has a phenomenal track record at Dover.
Over 21 starts at Dover, Allgaier has collected t2 wins, 10 top-5 finishes, 14 top-10s, and has led for 477 laps. Moreover, he has averaged a 9.4 finish on the track, which is seriously impressive. But it gets better.
If we only check Allgaier’s numbers under JR Motorsports, he has two wins and nine top-5s across 11 starts at Dover. One of those victories came in the 2022 Fall race when Allgaier led for 120 (out of 200) laps!
“I can’t wait to get to Dover this weekend with our No. 7 team,” said Allgaier.
His season so far hasn’t been too good, and we have to consider that. However, even with a less-than-impressive start to the 2022 season, Allgaier is still one of the most experienced and successful drivers at Dover International Speedway.
Outsiders that Can Impress
Josh Berry (+700) and Daniel Hemric (+1200) are priced as outsiders. We can’t say that we’re surprised by that, but they come off as excellent online sport betting picks at the offered price.
Berry has yet to win a race in 2022, but that’s completely fine, seeing how he is still No. 4 on the Xfinity Series ladder – and the only way he could have achieved that is with consistency. The win-less Berry has three top-5s and four top-10s across the last eight races, with a 33rd, 27th, 19th, and 11th-place finishes to fill in the other results.
However, Berry has a solid record in his one start at Dover in last year’s Spring race. In that race, Berry finished Stage 1 second and led by the end of Stage 2 but had to admit defeat to Austin Cindric, who took control in the final stage, leaving Berry with a silver medal.
Betting on Hemric might seem like a waste of money, and if we were to look at how he has performed so far this season, we can definitely see why many would want to avoid it. At Talladega, he had produced another disappointing finish (34th) after a crash, butting him at four 25th or worse finishes.
Regardless, Hemric always shows up at Dover, where he has consistently finished in the front. Most notably, he has five straight top-10 finishes and ninth, fifth, and third-place finishes across the last three years. Moreover, he placed ninth (2016) and fourth (2015) here in the Truck Series.
At this point, Hemric has nothing to lose, so perhaps that will inspire a better showing from him this weekend.

2022 NASCAR Xfinity: A-GAME 200 Prediction
In our book, Justin Allgaier is a no-brainer pick for the 2022 NASCAR Xfinity: A-GAME 200. His record on the season is not nearly as impressive as that of A.J. Allmendinger, nor is he the most successful all-time driver at Dover.
But if we only look at the results he had put up on the track while driving under JR Motorsports, it’s very hard to argue against Allgaier’s chances to come out on top. And the best part – he is priced fairly generously for someone who has two wins and nine top-5s across 11 starts.
Josh Berry is our outsider pick for the race as someone who has the tools to win, even though there are arguably better drivers heading to Dover this weekend. One thing that could concern you is Berry’s lack of experience on the track, but that seemingly did not affect him last year.
