As a Vegas bookmaker, Micah Roberts was the first to offer expanded NASCAR betting. Now he hands out NASCAR winners to his followers, and he's already up huge this season.
Roberts went with Jimmie Johnson as a hefty 25-1 longshot in the season-opening Advance Auto Parts Clash. The result: Johnson survived a huge crash and went on to win as Roberts' followers raked it in big-time. At the TicketGuardian 500 in Phoenix, Roberts nailed Kyle Busch at 4-1 odds over the heavily favored over Kevin Harvick, and got a ridiculous eight of the top 10 right. At the Auto Club 400, he got nine of the top 10 correct.
Roberts finished big-time in the black in 2018, too. Those who wagered $100 on each of his picks last year have $1,750 in profit to show for it. His biggest wins came when he went against the grain, taking Brad Keselowski at 12-1 to win the South Point 400 at Las Vegas in the opening race of the NASCAR Playoffs, and going with Joey Logano, also 12-1, to take the First Data 500 at Martinsville in the playoffs as well. He also nailed four of Kevin Harvick's nine series victories and three of Kyle Busch's nine wins. And last year he took Busch at 7-2 odds for this race -- Busch won the pole and cruised to a victory.
Last season capped an astonishing run in which Roberts picked nine of the 10 winners in the 2017 NASCAR Playoffs. In 2016, he took Denny Hamlin to win the Daytona 500 at 15-1, and took him again at 40-1 at Watkins Glen later that year. Anyone who's following his picks is up huge year after year.
Now Roberts has analyzed the field for Sunday's GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway, with the green flag at 2 p.m. ET.
We can tell you he's not going with Busch, the Cup Series points leader with three victories on the year and among the favorites at 10-1 odds. But Talladega has been a nightmare for Busch -- his average finish in 27 career races there is 21st -- and Roberts doesn't see that changing on Sunday. In fact, Roberts doesn't have Busch finishing in the top 20!
Instead, Roberts is high on an underdog with double-digit odds to surprise the leaders and win the GEICO 500. His picks and entire leaderboard will shock many, but anyone who backs them could hit it with a MASSIVE payday, just like in the season-opener.
So who wins the 2019 GEICO 500 on Sunday? And which driver with double-digit odds shocks NASCAR at Talladega? ... Join SportsLine right now to see Micah Roberts' full leaderboard for the Sunday's GEICO 500, and see which driver earns the checkered flag, all from the nation's premier NASCAR betting expert who's up HUGE year after year!
