NASCAR Xfinity Series: Contender Boats 300 Betting Preview
JR Motorsports’ Justin Allgaier is Chevrolet’s best chance to win a third consecutive race at Homestead. He Currently sits second in the Xfinity Series standings. He needs a combination of excellent performances and a little luck to bring himself closer to current Championship favorite Nemechek over the final three races of the season.
Allgaier bounced back from a disappointing 37th-place at Charlotte’s Roval, finishing sixth at Las Vegas. Giving him three top-ten finishes in the four playoff races, and earning four valuable stage wins. Allgaier will fight for the top five and should be in the mix for the win.
Stewart-Haas Racing’s Cole Custer has a previous win at Homestead. But his recent run of performances has impressed: Custer has three top-five and four top-six finishes in the playoffs. Custer has eight top-seven finishes in the last eight races. This means he’ll be in the mix for a top-five finish at Homestead.
He entered -2.
He exits +15.
