Adding to his already impressive tally, Jett Lawrence led every lap at Spring Creek MX Park, securing his 14th moto win and seventh overall victory in the 2023 AMA Pro Motocross National Championship Series. The Aussie sensation was the fastest qualifier, going on to dominate the day with an untouchable ride. Despite capturing the holeshot in the second moto, teammate Chase Sexton had to settle for a 2-2 finish after falling twice in moto 1 and once in moto 2, mimicking his results from the previous round. Dylan Ferrandis recovered from a poor start and a fall in moto 1 to secure the final podium spot, going 5-3 for the day. Aaron Plessinger extended his streak of fourth-place finishes to six, while Adam Cianciarulo bounced back to round out the top five overall. Lawrence has now expanded his series points lead to 81 over runner-up Ferrandis.
The next stop for the championship series is Washougal, Washington, where all riders will be aiming to break Lawrence’s winning streak. Taking place at the iconic Washougal MX Park, this highly anticipated 8th event on the 2023 Pro Motocross Championship tour is set to deliver adrenaline-fueled action like never before.

Top Picks and Bets for the Washougal National
The unstoppable rookie Jett Lawrence, fresh from another victory at Spring Creek, leads the pack once again as the favorite going into the Washougal National. His relentless winning streak places him as the safest bet for high-stake returns.
Chase Sexton is a strong contender, especially given his consistently high performances. Although his event-winning odds sit at +800, a more attainable podium finish at -164 presents a potentially profitable betting opportunity.
Adam Cianciarulo, carrying the enticing event-winning odds of +2500 and podium odds of +273, is an appealing pick for those betting on a resurgence. His recent top-five finish at Spring Creek signals potential for a solid result at Washougal.
Outsider Jason Anderson, with event-winning odds of +3500 and podium odds of +292, is worth considering. Despite an unfortunate crash in the second moto at Spring Creek, his strong performance in the first moto could indicate an upcoming turn in luck.
Finally, Dylan Ferrandis, standing at +3800 for event-winning odds and +295 for a podium finish, provides an exciting high-risk, high-reward option. After shaking off a poor start at Spring Creek to secure third place, Ferrandis could well surprise at Washougal.
Outsider Picks for the Washougal National
Ty Masterpool kicks off our list of outsiders for the Washougal National. With his sixth place at Spring Creek, he’s shown that he can contend with the front runners. At +388 for a podium finish, Masterpool presents a sound pick for those looking to venture beyond the favorites. A well-placed $20 bet could return a rewarding $97.60.
Aaron Plessinger comes next with odds of +5000 for event winner and podium odds at +492. Notably, Plessinger stood strong in Spring Creek, finishing in the top five once again. This suggests that he could make a surprise move to the podium in the Washougal National. A $20 wager on Plessinger for a podium finish could turn into a rewarding $118.40 payout, making him an interesting outsider pick.
Lastly, Garrett Marchbanks, though ranked 9th overall, offers a compelling long shot bet. After a solid 7th place finish at Spring Creek, his odds stand at +7000 for an outright win, while a podium finish brings a +843 return. A $20 bet on Marchbanks could net a total payout of $188.60, satisfying those bettors seeking high risk, high reward stakes.

Expert Pick for the Washougal National
Our expert pick for the upcoming Washougal National is the steadfast and determined Chase Sexton. Despite not being the odds-on favorite, Sexton’s performances, driven by his intense desire to clinch a win, make him a compelling choice. His relentless pursuit was in full view at the Spring Creek National, where he secured a commendable second-place finish, despite a couple of falls.
With winning odds standing at -150 (without Jett Lawrence) and -164 for securing a podium finish, Sexton’s chances are bright. He’s tenacious, always on the heels of the leaders, a quality that’s gotten him to the fifth spot in the overall standings.
His recent performances have been noteworthy, often coming close to victory, only to be thwarted by unfortunate slips. But this racer is known for his resilience, and bettors should take this into consideration. As he heads into the Washougal National, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Sexton turns his near-wins into an outright victory.
