Well, if you liked Sunday’s Cup Series action Sunday at Bristol, there’s more NASCAR action for you Monday night (7 p.m. ET, FS1) with the XFINITY Series’ Cheddar’s 300.
Christopher Bell and Tyler Reddick won last season’s events in Thunder Valley, but they’ve graduated to the Cup Series, and with no Cup stars like Kyle Busch running the race, there’s enough value up and down the odds board to warrant some action.
Here are three bets I’m making for Monday night’s NASCAR XFINITY Series Cheddar’s 300.
NASCAR XFINITY Series at Bristol Odds, Betting Picks
*Odds as of Monday at 12:30 p.m. ET
Justin Allgaier (+470)
Allgaier was the only driver with the speed to compete with the big three (Bell, Reddick and Cole Custer) at Bristol last season. In April, Allgaier led the most laps and won Stages 1 and 2 before mechanical issues took him out of the race with just over 70 laps to go.
In August, Justin was once again a contender for the win, finishing with the second-most laps led, the most fast laps run and the best driver rating before settling for an eighth-place finish.
Combined, Allgaier led 269 of 600 (44.8%) total laps run at Bristol last season in the XFINITY Series.
Let’s start off with a driver who is consistently fast in Thunder Valley and should have race-winning speed again tonight.
Austin Cindric (+1300)
Outside of the big three, Allgaier and Cup stars, you can make the argument that Cindric was the best XFINITY Series performer at Bristol last year.
In April, Cindric finished with the sixth-best driver rating, behind Bell, Reddick, Custer, Allgaier and Chase Briscoe, and remember, three of those drivers are no longer in the series.
Cindric was even better in August, sporting the fourth-best driver rating, which trailed just Allgaier, Reddick and Kyle Busch.
At the very least, Cindric is fast enough to be a top-five contender. And if he continues improving, it won’t be a surprise to see him leading laps.
Ryan Sieg (+6600)
Sieg has a reputation of overperforming his equipment, and this year his equipment has gotten better and the results show it.
Last year, his team RSS Racing entered into a technical alliance with Richard Childress Racing, resulting in a playoff appearance for Sieg. Their cars have gotten even faster this year, as Sieg sits seventh in points with two top-five finishes and four top 10s in six races.
As anyone who watched yesterday saw, things can get dicey at the front of the field at Bristol and if that happens again tonight, Sieg has shown enough speed this year to steal a win and cash at a longshot price.
