Kansas Lottery 200 Betting Picks and Prediction

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series playoffs continue with the Kansas Lottery 200 at Kansas Speedway this weekend.

This will be the second running of the race which was added to the schedule in 2020 after the series race at Ohio’s Eldora Speedway was canceled.

It became a permanent race on the NASCAR schedule this season, replacing the event at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.  

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs 2022

The third race of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs 2022 schedule should be competitive, with drivers needing to complete 134 laps on the 1.5-mile oval.

The event will be held on Friday, September 9, at 7:30 pm ET.  In his GMS Racing Chevrolet, Ben Moffitt won the race’s first running in 2020.

Two of the ten playoff qualifying drivers will be eliminated after this race, with four more eliminated after the next race at Homestead-Miami Speedway as the playoffs continue on October 22.   

Kansas Lottery 200 Betting Picks and Analysis

Chandler Smith

Chandler Smith has three wins in the Truck Series races in 18 starts and ranks first after two playoff stages. He also won the second playoff event at the Worldwide Express 250 after starting in the second position for his second playoff win in a row at Richmond. 

7 Points Ahead

Smith is just seven points ahead of Grant Enfinger, who got his first win of the season at Indianapolis in the first playoff race. He is consistently at the top of NASCAR odds and is one of the favorites.

He is also one of the top Kansas Lottery 200 betting picks with eight top-five and 12 top-ten finishes this season.

He has been improving in each of the last four seasons, with his best finish being eighth in the standings in 2021.   

Grant Enfinger

Enfinger picked up his first win of the season in the opening race of the playoffs on July 29 at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway.

He had another strong showing at Richmond while going for his second career win, finishing fourth. Unfortunately, his Chevrolet didn’t have the speed to contend with the top drivers and pick up another playoff win. 

Top at the Kansas Lottery 200

Enfinger has five top-five finishes and nine top-tens, despite only leading for 43 laps. He’s one of the top Kansas Lottery 200 betting picks as his momentum has improved in the last two events where he started in the fifth position.

He started 21st at the previous event at Kansas back in May, leading for one lap and finishing in third place.    

Zane Smith

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series regular-season champion continues his impressive 2022 performance and is one of the Kansas Lottery 200 betting picks for this weekend’s event.

He gave up second place in the standings after finishing in ninth place behind Enfinger in the last event at Richmond. 

Top Five in Previous Races

Smith has no recent wins but has finished in the top five in three of the previous five races. He wrecked in the inaugural event in 2020 while trying to pass the leader with two laps to go.

Smith was also the winner at Kansas Speedway in May at the Heart of America 200 and dominated the field while leading for 108 of the 134 laps after starting in fourth position.

Kansas Lottery 200 Betting Trends

  • This is the second running of the Kansas Lottery 200, with GMS racing the manufacturer that came out on top in 2020.

Kansas Lottery 200 Betting Pick and Prediction

Zane Smith finished in the lead in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series standings at the end of the regular season.

However, he finished ninth in the last event at Richmond and contended for the lead before a mishap put him out of the race with just two laps remaining. 

Most Profitable Driver to Bet On

Nevertheless, Smith continues to add to his impressive career stats and was a two-time runner-up for the championship.

The Kansas Lottery 200 motorsports betting odds have him again as one of the favorites to come out on top.
