In 2016, rookie Alexander Rossi shocked the world, winning the Indy 500 as an 80-1 long-shot. The nation's premier auto racing betting expert, SportsLine's Micah Roberts, was all over Rossi.
Two years ago, sportsbooks listed Takuma Sato as a 25-1 long shot, but Roberts liked his speed during practice runs and listed him in the top 10 of his projected leaderboard. The result: Sato stunned the IndyCar world with his first win since 2013 and anybody who backed him saw a massive return.
Spot-on picks are the norm from Roberts, the first Vegas bookmaker to offer expanded betting on auto racing. Now, he hands out winners to his followers.
He's locked in on this year's running of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday at 12:45 p.m. ET and just revealed his projected leaderboard, listing all 33 drivers in the field.
We can tell you he has Ed Jones, a 20-1 long shot, in his projected top 10. "He's never won an Indy car race before, but he's certainly got the speed to make it happen Sunday," Roberts said. "This is the fastest car he's had at Indy and he was third in his rookie race in 2017."
Roberts has also identified an epic long shot with a real chance of taking the checkered flag. Vegas isn't giving this driver any respect, so you could cash in HUGE on Sunday. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before entering your picks!
