As a Vegas bookmaker, Micah Roberts was the first to offer expanded NASCAR betting. Now he hands out NASCAR winners to his followers.
Roberts has nailed two of the last three race winners. Last week he called for Kevin Harvick to dominate at Michigan, and he did just that for his seventh win of the season. Three weeks ago, he was all over Kyle Busch at Pocono, pointing to not only his 26 career starts at the track but his motivation to win after a late bump from Harvick the week before. Busch rallied from the 28th position for the checkered flag.
Those are just the latest in a series of winning plays by the NASCAR betting expert.
Roberts called Harvick's win at Kansas Speedway this season, and at Bristol Motor Speedway he said Busch "owns this track" and would win there for the seventh time. The result: Busch came from behind and crossed the finish line ahead of Kyle Larson.
Earlier 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 then was all over Harvick at Las Vegas as Harvick delivered another lopsided win. Roberts also was very high on Clint Bowyer in the STP 500 -- and Bowyer promptly snapped his 190-race winless streak there.
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 Daytona 500 and took him again at 40-1 at Watkins Glen later that year: Two more victories with epic payouts.
Now Roberts has analyzed Saturday's Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway (7:30 p.m. ET) and released his top 20 finishers in order. We can tell you he's not picking Larson, noting the odds are a little too high (4-1), despite his strong success at the track.
Instead, Roberts is backing an epic double-digit longshot to win the race, and has another mega-underdog in his top four that could pay out huge for anyone who backs him. He cites much-more than past success as Bristol for backing both drivers.
