The NASCAR Cup Series schedule continues on Saturday with the 2022 Coke Zero Sugar 400 from Daytona International Speedway. The green flag drops at 7 p.m. ET. There are seven drivers listed as 12-1 co-favorites in the 2022 NASCAR at Daytona odds from Caesars Sportsbook, highlighted by last week's winner and defending NASCAR champion Kyle Larson. Our proven projection model has simulated the 2022 Coke Zero Sugar 400 10,000 times and come up with a surprising leaderboard.

Developed by daily Fantasy pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction computer model takes into account a slew of factors including track history and recent results.

In the 2021 season, McClure's model nailed Martin Truex Jr. to win at Martinsville for a strong 3-1 payout. Then it called Chase Elliott to win at Road America for a 5-2 payout. McClure's model also called Larson's win at Texas for an 11-4 payout and his win at Kansas for a 9-4 payout in back-to-back weeks before nailing Larson to win the season finale in Phoenix to claim the 2021 NASCAR Cup Championship.  In total, it nailed five of Larson's wins during a historic season

So far in 2022, it was high on Ross Chastain to win in Austin, giving him a far better shot to win than his 40-1 odds implied. The model was also high on Joey Logano before he won as a 15-1 underdog at Darlington and high on Logano again when he returned 14-1 on his win in St. Louis. Last week, it was much higher on Kevin Harvick than his 17-1 odds implied and Harvick went on to capture the win at Michigan. Anyone who followed its lead on those plays saw HUGE returns.

Now, the model has dialed in on NASCAR Daytona 2022 and released its projections.

The 2022 Coke Zero Sugar 400 is the final race of the regular season and with 15 different winners so far, any first-time champion would lock in the 16-driver field for the 2022 NASCAR Playoffs. Austin Cindric won the 2022 Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway, while Ryan Blaney won last year's Daytona Night Race.

For the 2022 Coke Zero Sugar 400, we can tell you the model is high on Martin Truex Jr., even though he's a 17-1 long shot in the latest 2022 NASCAR at Daytona odds. He's a target for anyone looking for a HUGE payday. And a massive shocker: Joey Logano, one of the Vegas favorites at 12-1, stumbles big-time and fails to crack the top 10! There are far better values in the 2022 Coke Zero Sugar 400 starting lineup.

The model is also targeting THREE OTHER drivers with 2022 NASCAR at Daytona odds of 15-1 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 it is before locking in any NASCAR picks.

So who wins the 2022 Coke Zero Sugar 400? And which long shots are a MUST-BACK? ... Join SportsLine right now to see the full projected NASCAR at Daytona leaderboard, all from the model that nailed five of Kyle Larson's wins last season!
