NASCAR has a triple header this weekend as the Cup, Xfinity, and Camping World Truck Series will all have races at Texas Motor Speedway while Formula 1 is scheduled to have the Portuguese Grand Prix.

NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors World Truck Series – SpeedyCash.com 400

The playoff races in Truck Series have been entertaining thus far as there is a tight race in the playoff standings as the difference between first place driver Sheldon Creed and fourth place Brett Moffitt is only 23 points.

Odds to Win SpeedyCash.com 400

  • Austin Hill +350
  • Sheldon Creed +350
  • Brett Mofitt +475
  • Zane Smith +600
  • Matt Crafton +950
  • Christian Eckes +1100
  • Grant Enfinger +1200
  • Ben Rhodes +1600
  • Chandler Smith +1900

Hill is only seven points away from taking the lead in the playoff standings with seven points being the difference. That can easily be made up in one race and this could be the race that gives Hill the momentum going into the last couple of Truck Series races.

Take his +350 odds as he’s been one of the most consistent drivers in the Truck Series. Hill has found victory lane twice and a strong performance here likely will give him a lead track to the Truck Series championship.

Enfinger comes into SpeedyCash.com 400 with odds of a long shot at +1200 but he has a better chance to win this race than the odds show.

Enfinger is tied with Sheldon Creed for the most wins in the Truck Series this season and despite only being 26 points away from first place in the playoff standings the odds on Enfinger should be taken with confidence as the return on a win at the Texas Motor Speedway would make some bettors big winners.

NASCAR Xfinity Series – O’Reilly Auto Parts 300

The Xfinity Series is close to finding out who will be the champion as Chase Briscoe tries to extend his lead in the playoff standings. Briscoe has been the most dominant driver in the Xfinity Series this season. Expect Justin Allgaier, Brandon Jones, and Austin Cindric to all be in the hunt for victory lane as they need to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Odds to Win O’Reilly Auto Parts 300

  • Austin Cindric +200
  • Chase Briscoe +200
  • Justin Allgaier +725
  • Ross Chastain +725
  • Harrison Burton +825
  • Noah Gragson +925
  • Brandon Jones +1400
  • Justin Haley +1600
  • Michael Annett +4400
  • Field +5000

Briscoe has the most wins in the Xfinity Series this season with nine. That momentum has carried over into the playoffs as he’s atop the series standings.

Briscoe will need another strong playoff showing to keep his lead. The +200 odds on Briscoe should be taken as he remains a threat to find victory lane in any Xfinity Series race.

Cindric is currently in fourth place of the playoff standings and being 62 points behind Briscoe he’ll need a top finish in the top 5 to keep his spot in the playoff standings.

For anyone not wanting to take the odds on Briscoe, Cindric is well worth the gamble here as he has the second-most wins in the Xfinity Series this season. Between Cindric and Briscoe Xfinity Series bettors have two excellent choices to bet on in this race.

NASCAR Cup Series Betting – AutoTrader EchoPark Automotive 500

There are only two more races remaining in the NASCAR Cup Series before a champion is crowned. Joey Logano currently holds a slim lead in Cup Series the playoff standings and will look to hold off second-place Kevin Harvick and third-place Denny Hamlin going into the final stretch of the playoffs.

Odds To Win AutoTrader EchoPark Automotive 500

  • Kevin Harvick +200
  • Denny Hamlin +425
  • Chase Elliott +800
  • Brad Keselowski +900
  • Martin Truet Jr. +900
  • Ryan Blaney +900
  • Joey Logano +1000
  • Kyle Busch +1000
  • Ricky Steinhouse Jr. +2000

Kevin Harvick has won this race the past three years and will need another winning performance to get one step closer to winning the Cup Series Title.

Harvick’s experience in dominating this race clearly gives him an advantage over the rest of the field. Harvick led the Cup Series in wins this year with nine and that momentum should carry him to his fourth straight win in the AutoTrader EchoPark Automotive 500.

Aside from Harvick, Denny Hamlin has been the best driver in the Cup Series this season. Hamlin has the second-most wins in the series with seven and while he shouldn’t be the first driver to bet on in this race his +425 odds are a good dart throw in case Harvick doesn’t find Victory Lane.

Hamlin still being alive in the playoff standings means he will race aggressively and that alone is enough reason to take the odds on Hamlin.

Formula 1 – Portuguese Grand Prix

Formula 1 gifts motorsports bettors the gift of the Portuguese Grand Prix this weekend as a familiar face is atop the odds board in Lewis Hamilton.

Look for him to dominate this Grand Prix just as he’s dominated Formula 1 racing for the past couple of years.

Odds To Win Portuguese Grand Prix

  • Lewis Hamilton -190
  • Valtteri Bottas +225
  • Max Verstappen +500
  • Daniel Ricciardo +6600
  • Carlos Sainz Jr +10000
  • Charles Leclerc +10000
  • Lando Norris +10000
  • Sergio Perez +10000
  • Alexander Albon +15000

Lewis Hamilton has been the best driver in Formula 1 for the past couple of years as he’s separated himself from the rest of the drivers.

At this point, if you’re betting against Hamilton, you’re just donating money to sportsbooks. Hamilton has -190 odds to win the Portuguese Grand Prix and those odds should be taken with confidence because once the racing starts Hamilton’s odds will continue up the ladder as the favorite.

Bottas has been able to scrape up victories when Hamilton has fallen short but that doesn’t happen often.

If looking for an option outside of Hamilton to bet on then Bottas is your guy and his +225 odds would bring in a decent return.
