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 both races of the NASCAR playoffs, calling for Brad Keselowski to win at Vegas at 12-1 odds. Last week at Richmond, he said Kyle Busch was due for his seventh win of the season, and he did just that, taking the checkered after starting from the 11th spot.
Robert is simply capping off an amazing 12-month run picking NASCAR. Recently, he said Kevin Harvick would dominate at Michigan, and he did just that for his seventh win this season. He was all over Busch at Pocono, pointing to not only his 26 career starts there but his motivation to win after a late bump from Harvick the week before. Busch rallied from 28th to win the checkered flag.
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 Sunday's Bank of America Roval 400 (2 p.m. ET), as NASCAR turns Charlotte Motor Speedway into a 17-turn road course through the infield. He's released his top 20 finishers in order.
We can tell you he's not picking Busch to win again, despite being the big favorite at 3-1 odds.
Instead, Roberts is another driver in the thick of the playoff race to get back on track by winning the Bank of America Roval 400. Roberts has another huge underdog finishing right behind the winner in second place that could pay out huge for anyone who backs him.
