Nascar Odds, Picks, & Predictions: Will Ross be the boss of the Nascar All-Star Race?

Ross Chastain celebrating his win in the Geico 500

It’s Nascar’s All-Star weekend and we’re in Texas for a second straight year. 24 drivers will be racing their butts off for the winner-take-all $1 Million this Sunday at 8 pm et at Texas Motor Speedway. The race will be dramatically different than what we normally see and you can get a quick look at the format and preview of the race here. Being that this isn’t for regular-season points and is kind of an exhibition, the betting card will be a lot lighter and built with less of a focus on the previous history at this track. Before diving into the odds, picks, & predictions for the Nascar All-Star Race, let’s go over the results of the AdventHealth400. 

AdventHealth 400 Betting Recap

So close, yet so far was the story of last Sunday. Austin Dillon never quite worked his way inside the top 10. Ross Chastain ran in his now typical position around the top 5 but saw Martin Truex Jr. pass him late and finish one spot ahead. Christopher Bell did exactly what I envisioned qualifying on pole resulting in his odds being cut in half by the race start. He didn’t cash our outright but any other place bets prior to qualifying definitely brought home the dough. Lastly, Kevin Harvick finished 15th, having his worst run at Kansas since 2015, and never threatening a top 10 finish.

Austin Dillon Top 10 +200L
Ross Chastain -116 Over Martin Truex Jr.L
Christopher Bell to Win +2000L
Best Bet: Kevin Harvick Top 10 -120L

Nascar Odds, Picks, Predictions – All-Star Race

Driver Matchup: Chase Elliott -116 Over William Byron

  • Byron has more Wins (2 vs 1), Top 5’s (4 to 3), Stage wins (3 to 2), and DNFs (2 to 0) than Elliott
  • As a matter of fact, Byron’s four T5’s are his only finishes all year inside the T10
  • Elliott only has two finishes worst than 14th all season
  • Elliott finished 3rd in this event last season with Byron coming in 7th
  • Have more confidence in Chase to do what’s necessary to move up the field in an event like this

Outright: Ross Chastain +1000

  • Simply don’t care about his Cup Series history here
  • Finished 18th in last year’s All-Star Race
  • Has the top avg. speed at the two 1.5 mile long tracks of Las Vegas & Kansas this year
  • Ran at the front in both those races ultimately finishing 3rd in Vegas and 7th last week in Kansas
  • Is unafraid to “move” people for a win; have to assume he’d be just as aggressive for $1 Million
