The NASCAR Xfinity Series heads to Las Vegas for the next round of the Xfinity Series playoffs.

Here, you’ll find everything you need to know on the top names among the Alsco Uniforms 302 betting odds.
Track: Las Vegas Motor Speedway
Updated Playoff Standings
Thanks to his historical winning streak earlier in these playoffs, Noah Gragson still sits atop the playoff standings with 3,056 points. He’s the favorite the rest of the way to hoist the trophy at the end of the season.
A.J. Allmendinger was able to get back into striking distance of Gragson with a win at Charlotte Roval after a win at Talladega. Can Allmendinger end the season on a win streak like the one we saw from Gragson? Likely not. But you can expect consistent outings from Allmendinger the rest of the way to keep him in contention.
Ty Gibbs remains in third place with 3,038 points, six points behind Allmendinger. At one point this season, it looked like the drivers in the field might be chasing Gibbs for the title, as he held the most victories at the halfway mark. Thanks to the historical run by Gragson and the overall consistency from Allmendinger, Gibbs is looking up at those two in the standings. Don’t expect Gibbs to go quietly.
Justin Allgaier rounds out the top four with 3,033 points. Allgaier has been able to hang around this season and has flipped positions often throughout the season. He would need to go on quite the run at this point to win the Xfinity Series, but for now, his sights should be on fending off lower drivers from that last playoff spot.
Josh Berry sits on the outside looking in with 3,022 points. Austin Hill is behind him with 3,018. Brandon Jones is sixth with 3,011 points and Sam Mayer eighth with 3,005 points.
Who are the Favorites?
What motivation do racing enthusiast have to bet on Xfinity? Let’s look further:
Gragson currently sits atop the Alsco Uniforms 302 betting odds board at +250 to take the checkered flag. He’s performed well at Las Vegas in the past, he’s just never won.
Still, his track record is quite impressive, as he’s finished in the top 10 in each of his seven starts at Las Vegas, including six top-five finishes. Will Gragson finally breakthrough for a win, or will he be a bridesmaid once again?
Second on the Alsco Uniforms 302 betting odds board is Gibbs at +300. He won at Las Vegas earlier this season and wasn’t too shabby in this race last year. After he started 11th, he made his way up to fourth by the end of Stage 1. He was running seventh at the end of Stage 2 before just missing out on a top-10 finish. While it’s a small sample size, Gibbs has proven he can win here.
Next on this week’s NASCAR Xfinity odds board is Allgaier at +400. He’s got 16 Xfinity Series starts at Las Vegas under his belt and has finished outside of the top 10 just three times. He’s finished in second just as many times. Allgaier tends to have experience on most of the other drivers and this week seems no different.
Where’s the Value?
Trevor Bayne will be getting an Xfinity Series start this week and comes in at +600. His best finish was a ninth-place finish back in 2012 in the Cup Series. In terms of average position of finish, Las Vegas was Bayne’s second-best track. Bayne has been known to shock some people, but these odds seem a tad low.
When looking to bet on NASCAR, the number, or price you get the driver at is almost as important as the driver you select. Allmendinger has made it into the value section multiple times this season and here we are again.
Despite a two-race winning streak and being second in the Xfinity Series standings, oddsmakers still have Allmendinger in the double digits at +1200. He won at Las Vegas back in 2021. Perhaps just as important is the fact that he’s managed to get out front and lead at least 20 laps in each of his three starts. His resume compared to Bayne’s makes it curious as to how the oddsmakers have Allmendinger that far behind.
