NASCAR Truck Series Baptist Health Cancer Care 200 Prediction

The Truck Series knuckleheads are taking their talents to South Beach. Alright, alright. They're not ALL knuckleheads. The entry list has a few talented guys that will be on the right side of promotions next year. Notably, @speedwaysteve2 favorite Chandler Smith will be hopping into AJ Allmendinger's No. 16 Kaulig wagon in the Xfinity Series in 2023.

Chandler Smith still has some unfinished business to take care of in this series before he rides off into the sunset. He's the Camping World Truck Series Championship betting favorite (+225) and squarely in our crosshairs this weekend at Homestead.

NASCAR Truck Series Baptist Health Cancer Care 200 Picks

*Odds available at DraftKings at time of publishing*

0.5u to win 3.0u - Chandler Smith to outright win (+600) (Bet $100 to collect $600)

1.0u to win 1.5u - Chandler Smith to finish inside the Top-3 (+150) (Bet $100 to collect $150)

This outright win wager is hanging at +550 in several shops. If you have to play one of those, we completely understand. The important thing is that you bet it.

Chandler Smith has been a dawg this season. We had figured that he would make a little noise throughout the year. He's in a Kyle Busch Motorsport truck, after all. But it's been fantastic to see his overall development in 2022. He is ranked third amongst series regulars in 2022 in driver rating (101.2), average fast laps (9.2/per race), and average running position (9.2). Smith is second in average laps led per race (17.6) and average finish (9.0).

The guy has been rock solid. We expect more of the same from Chandler Smith in the early window on Saturday afternoon. The Kyle Busch Motorsport trucks have consistently been the best equipment on the track and that should continue. We don't trust teammate and race favorite John Hunter Nemechek at such a short price and would rather snag the value with Smith in this spot.

Let's cash in a couple of truck tickets on the first race of Saturday's NASCAR doubleheader! To see my prediction and pick for the second race in this double header click here.
