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' winning pick for each of the 25 NASCAR races in 2019 are already up $1,100! In fact, those who put down $50 on Roberts' top-four leaderboard picks are up $1,800 on the year, buoyed by Alex Bowman's big win at Chicago at 30-1 odds. He also hit with Denny Hamlin at 10-1 odds at Pocono two weeks ago.
Roberts for 2019 off to a blazing start with Jimmie Johnson as a hefty 25-1 long shot at the 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, Roberts nailed Kyle Busch at 4-1 over the heavily favored Kevin Harvick, and at Dover he won with Martin Truex Jr. at 8-1. Truex won the race despite starting at the back of the field.
Roberts' top 20 leaderboard has been on top of it, too. At 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. In fact, 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. 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 Consumers Energy 400 at Michigan International Raceway, the second race of the season at the two-mile track. The green flag drops at 3 p.m. ET.
We can tell you that Roberts is high on Logano, who won the race at Michigan in June and has taken three of the last 12 races at the speedway. Roberts says he should once again be near the front at the end with a chance to win.
"This is the home track for Team Penske. In Logano's 13 races driving there for Penske, he has 12 top-10 finishes," Roberts told SportsLine. "He's definitely a driver you don't want to bet against in driver match-ups."
For the win, Roberts is eyeing an epic long shot who has run well at this track and raced strong using the car package in play. He's trending upward and Roberts says Sunday could be his day. Anyone who backs this driver could hit it BIG.
