The NASCAR Xfinity Series season continues on Saturday, May 8, with the 2021 Steakhouse Elite at Darlington Raceway. The green flag drops at 1 p.m. ET. Austin Cindric (14-5), A.J. Allmendinger (9-2) and Harrison Burton (5-1) are the favorites at William Hill Sportsbook.
Our proven projection model has simulated this race 10,000 times and came up with a surprising leaderboard.
Developed by daily Fantasy pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction computer model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking into account a slew of factors including track history and recent results.
The model began the 2021 Xfinity Series schedule by nailing Austin Cindric's win at Daytona at 10-1. It also called Cindric to win again at 5-2 in the Call 811 Before You Dig 200 and then it nailed nine of the top 10 in the 2021 Cook Out 250 at Martinsville. It also nailed three top-five finishers at Talladega in April. Anybody who followed those picks saw HUGE returns!
Now, the model has dialed in on the 2021 Steakhouse Elite 200 and released its projections.
We can tell you the model is high on Brandon Jones, a big 14-1 long shot. Another surprise: the model is completely fading Burton, one of the top-three favorites, saying he doesn't even crack the top five!
The model is also targeting two other drivers with NASCAR Xfinity Series at Darlington odds of 14-1 or longer to make a serious run at the checkered flag. Anyone who backs these drivers could hit it BIG. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who they are before locking in any NASCAR picks.
So who wins the 2021 Steakhouse Elite 200? And which long shots stun NASCAR? ... Join SportsLine right now to see the full projected leaderboard, all from the model that nailed Cindric's season-opening win at Daytona this year!
