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.
Those who have wagered $100 on Roberts' picks for each of the 18 NASCAR races in 2019 are already up $1,900.
Roberts went with Jimmie Johnson as a hefty 25-1 long shot at the season-opening Advance Auto Parts Clash. The result: Johnson survived a huge crash and went on to win the rain-shortened race as Roberts' followers raked it in. At the TicketGuardian 500 in Phoenix in March, Roberts nailed Busch at 4-1 odds over the heavily favored Harvick, and at Dover he went with Martin Truex Jr. at 8-1 odds. Truex won the race despite starting at the back of the field.
Roberts' top 20 leaderboard has been on top of it, too. For the TicketGuardian 500 he nailed an eye-popping eight of the top 10. At the Auto Club 400, he got nine of the top 10 correct.
Roberts entered the 2019 NASCAR season after finishing big-time in the black in 2018. 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 Keselowski at 12-1 to win the South Point 400 at Las Vegas in the opening race of the NASCAR playoffs and going with Logano, also 12-1, to take the First Data 500 at Martinsville. He also nailed four of Harvick's nine series victories and three of Busch's nine wins. Anyone who's following his picks is up huge year after year.
Now Roberts has analyzed the field for Sunday's Pocono 400 at Pocono Raceway, with the green flag at 2 p.m. ET.
We can tell you that Roberts is high on Denny Hamlin, a darkhorse at 12-1 NASCAR at Pocono odds. He's the active leader with four wins at Pocono, though none since 2010. But Roberts says the car package in use Sunday helps him, and has Hamlin in the top 5 of his leaderboard.
"He's been very good with this package so far which includes a win at Texas," Roberts told SportsLine. "He'll find a way to the front."
But for the win, Roberts is high on a big longshot with double-digit odds who is in a good spot at the Pocono 400, unearthing critical reasons to choose him over the field. His top 5 and the entire leaderboard will shock many, but anyone who backs them could hit it with a MASSIVE payday.
So who wins the Pocono 400? And which long shot shocks NASCAR? ... Join SportsLine right now to see Micah Roberts' full leaderboard for NASCAR at Pocono, all from the nation's premier NASCAR betting expert who's up HUGE year after year!
