As a Vegas bookmaker, Micah Roberts was the first to offer expanded NASCAR betting. Now he hands out NASCAR winners to his followers.
Roberts added to his season win total last week by accurately picking Kevin Harvick to win at Kansas Speedway on Saturday. It was just the latest in a long line of checkered-flag winners picked by NASCAR's premier handicapper.
At Bristol Motor Speedway, Roberts said Kyle Busch "owns this track" and would win there for the seventh time. The result? Busch came from behind and crossed the finish line .63 seconds ahead of runner-up Kyle Larson.
Earlier this season at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Roberts told SportsLine readers to jump on Harvick, who had the same 9/2 odds as Martin Truex Jr. and Larson. Harvick dominated. Roberts again was all over Harvick at Las Vegas as Harvick delivered another lopsided win. Three weeks ago, Roberts was very high on Clint Bowyer, who snapped his 190-race winless streak in the STP 500.
Roberts' uncanny picks come as no surprise. In the 2017 NASCAR playoffs, Roberts picked nine of the 10 winners. In 2016, he backed Denny Hamlin (15.1) at the Dayton 500 and took him again at 40/1 at Watkins Glen later that year. Just two more victories with huge payouts.
NASCAR's star-studded All-Star Race at Charlotte comes this Saturday night. It features just 21 cars, all of whom could pull it off. Roberts as analyzed the entire field and released his top 19 finishers in order.
We can tell you he's not high on Kyle Busch, the race favorite at 5/1 and last year's All-Star race winner. Busch hasn't won in 28 starts at Charlotte, and Roberts doesn't see him even finishing anywhere near the top five.
Instead, Roberts is banking on a double-digit sleeper who has all the attributes needed to make a serious run at the checkered flag in this major event. He cites critical reasons you won't find in any statistical analysis, and anyone who bets on this underdog could hit it big...
