As a Vegas bookmaker, Micah Roberts was the first to offer expanded NASCAR betting. Now he hands out NASCAR winners to his followers.
Roberts called Kevin Harvick's win at Kansas Speedway this season, and at Bristol Motor Speedway he said Kyle 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 Gander Outdoors 400 at Pocono Raceway (2:30 p.m. ET) and released his top 20 finishers in order. We can tell you he's not picking Harvick, the 3-2 favorite, despite his season-leading six wins.
But Roberts is all over a long shot who's winless this season, but owns a strong track record at Pocono. Roberts also is eyeing a colossal underdog nobody is talking about. Anyone who backs him could be in for a monster payout.
Who wins the Gander Outdoors 400 at Pocono Raceway? And what huge long shot will shock the NASCAR world?
