The NASCAR circuit heads to the Kansas Speedway following a couple of wild races in Darlington last weekend.
The “Lady in Black” got the best of many top-name drivers last week, and teams are hoping that Kansas is a little kinder on their cars.
Ty Gibbs is the returning champion and the +400 favorite to repeat in the Kansas Lottery 300 betting predictions.
Noah Gragson pulled out the win in Darlington last week, surviving not only a tough track but also a nearly three-hour rain delay, and he’s +450 on Saturday afternoon.
With only two races left until the playoffs, expect another wild event this week and next Friday at the Cheddar’s 300 from Bristol.
Kansas Lottery 300 Betting Picks
Five different drivers have won the last five Xfinity series events, with the biggest upset being Jeremy Clements capturing the checkered flag at Daytona two weeks ago. That parity really opens things up for Kansas Lottery 300 betting predictions.
Ty Gibbs +400
Hard not to like Gibbs even with the +400 odds this weekend, considering he won this race last October for what was, at the time what was his fourth career Xfinity Series win.
Gibbs is second behind A.J. Allmendinger in Xfinity series standings but is projected to go into the playoffs ranked #1. Gibbs leads the Xfinity Series with five wins this season and is one for one in his career at Kansas.
Justin Allgaier +450
Gragson got the win for JR Motorsports last week in Darlington, so it only feels right that it’s his teammate Allgaier’s turn to pick up the victory on Saturday.
That duo has combined for seven wins this season, with Allgaier finishing in the top seven in six of his last eight races.
Allgaier finished ninth at the Kansas Lottery 300 last season but has hopes for a much better showing Saturday.
Brandon Jones +1400
Brandon Jones has some solid value this weekend as a 2X winner at Kansas, including holding off Austin Cindric in overtime at the Kansas Lottery 250 in 2020.
Jones won the pole last weekend at Darlington but only led three laps before finishing 14th. He’s still in the playoffs thanks to his win at Martinsville and is currently projected to go into the postseason ranked seventh.

Kansas Lottery 300 Betting pick and prediction
Gibbs was impressive here last season as a 19-year-old, and he has to be considered a great wager once again in Kansas Lottery 300 betting predictions.
Allgaier and Gragson are a toss-up every week with both at +450 odds, with Gragson having momentum after taming the “Lady in Black” last Saturday in Darlington.
Oddsmakers are really valuing Josh Berry at +600 in the Kansas Lottery 300 betting prediction; an underrated driver projected to go into the playoffs ranked fifth.
Most Profitable Driver
Berry is ahead of A.J. Allmendinger (+800) and last week’s runner-up Sheldon Creed (+2000) in the odds. As for our Kansas Lottery 300 prediction, the way to go this week, though, is with Jones.
He’s got value at +1400, is a multiple winner at Kansas, and was in good enough form to get the pole last weekend at Darlington.
