The 2023 Red Bud Pro Motocross Round 5 showcased Jett Lawrence’s dominance in the 450 class. From the start, Lawrence took the lead, laying down an impressive performance. His best lap time was a second-and-a-half faster than the rest of the competitors. By the time Chase Sexton, returning from injury, found his pace and overtook Cianciarulo, Ferrandis, and Masterpool, Lawrence had already secured his victory in moto 1.
In the second moto, Lawrence continued his dominance, grabbing another holeshot and claiming another wire-to-wire win. Dylan Ferrandis tried to challenge Lawrence, but ultimately Lawrence upped the pace, leaving the former 450MX champion behind. Ferrandis held onto the second place, with Chase Sexton, who had an initial surge but tipped over in the downhill ruts, claiming the third spot after a hard-fought race. The overall results for the top five in the 450 class were Jett Lawrence (1-1), Dylan Ferrandis (3-2), Chase Sexton (2-3), Aaron Plessinger (4-4), and Jason Anderson (5-7).

Top Picks and Bets for the Southwick National
Jett Lawrence continues his incredible streak as the leading contender heading into the Southwick National. His peerless performance across the season so far assures him as the most secure bet. Backing Lawrence could mean a ticket to high-stake returns, considering his current form.
Adam Cianciarulo, with event winner odds at +1800 and podium odds at +264, is an enticing option for those looking to support a podium finisher. After a somewhat disappointing performance at RedBud, with a 10th overall finish, we expect a return to form in Southwick. Chase Sexton, although carrying longer odds for an outright victory, is expected to put on an impressive performance as well. A podium bet on Sexton, with odds of +287, could yield a decent payout.
Finally, Aaron Plessinger and Dylan Ferrandis, both offering a blend of risk and reward with event winner odds of +1900 and +2200 respectively, and podium odds of +298 and +302 respectively, make for interesting options. Both are incredibly skilled and consistent performers, and a bet on either to podium could payout handsomely.
Outsider Picks for the Southwick National
Derek Drake, with podium odds of +390, could provide a significant return for those willing to take a chance. A $20 bet on Drake to finish in the top three could return a total of $98. Similarly, Garrett Marchbanks, despite longer odds, has demonstrated his capability to rise to the occasion in past events. A $20 bet on Marchbanks for a podium finish, with odds of +448, could yield a total return of $109.60.
Lastly, Jason Anderson, who recently returned to racing at RedBud and secured an impressive fifth place finish in his first race back, presents an interesting proposition. His recent return to form and competitive spirit may just see him clinch a spot in the top three at Southwick, providing savvy bettors with a lucrative opportunity. With podium odds of +489, a successful $20 bet on Anderson would result in a rewarding total payout of $117.80.
Expert Pick for the Southwick National
Chase Sexton is our expert pick for this event, despite not being the favorite. As one of the world’s premier racers, his performance post-injury at the RedBud National demonstrated that he has lost none of his formidable speed or skills. Securing a spot on the podium at RedBud upon his return was an emphatic statement of intent. His momentum appears to be building, and with odds of +1400 for the win and +287 for a podium finish, betting on Sexton could result in a considerable payout. His proven track record combined with his resilience following injury make him a compelling pick for the Southwick National.
