Aiming for the Record
Is it even worth it to look at the Xfinity NASCAR odds for this weekend, or do we just put Noah Gragson’s name on the ticket and close our eyes?
Gragson is on an absolute tear – almost unheard of – as his win last week at Bristol was his third in a row, following checkered flags at Kansas and Darlington.
Gragson became just the 10th driver in Xfinity history to win three straight races, and with a victory in the Andy’s Frozen Custard, he can become just the second to win four in a row. Sam Ard is the only Xfinity driver to bag four straight races, and he did that way back in 1983.
Can Anybody Contend With Gragson?
Believe it or not, Gragson is not the overwhelming favorite to pick up the win this weekend as he’s “only” +350 for betting online.
It’s actually Justin Allgaier, who is the +320 Andy’s Frozen Custard 300 wagering favorite. Allgaier did lead 148 laps last week at Bristol, and his ninth-place finish was a third straight top-10, but come on, this is Gragson’s tour right now.
Ty Gibbs is +400 for Saturday’s race, and he can’t like all the attention Gragson is getting right now. Gibbs has been the darling of the tour for most of the season with five wins, but Gragson’s hot streak has given him six checkered flags for the year.
Gibbs went from the pole to a 36th-place finish last week at Bristol after some contact with Sheldon Creed ended his day early. He did lead 89 laps and also led 66 en route to a third-place finish the week before in Kansas, so the No. 54 car is always one to watch.
Time for a Longshot?
The NASCAR Cup Series has been great for longshots to pay out as they’ve had 19 different drivers win this season, tied for the most in over two decades and one shy of the most all-time.
The Xfinity series hasn’t been as bountiful, however, although the Jeremy Clements win at Daytona at the end of August was kind of a shocker.
To win in Xfinity sport betting, it’s probably best to fill out a card loading up on the heavy favorites like Gragson, Gibbs or Allgaier. John Hunter Nemechek doesn’t have a bad payout at +700, though, especially since he’s the defending Andy’s Frozen Custard 300 champion.
A.J. Allmendinger at +1200 has nice odds considering he’s clinched the regular season championship, and Creed (+1500) has led 30-plus laps in two of his last three races and was contending until the crash last week.

NASCAR Xfinity Andy’s Frozen Custard 300 Prediction
Nobody is going to scrutinize you for banking on Gragson at +350. In fact, the real criticism might be if you take anybody besides him right now in the midst of a three-race win streak.
Gragson is racing for history on Saturday night, and he’ll do something that has only been done once – and not nearly 40 years – by taking home a fourth straight.
Besides Gragson, Creed isn’t a bad bet for longer odds. He’s run well in two of the last three and also won at Texas in the Truck Series in 2020.
