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 24 NASCAR races in 2019 are already up $1,300!

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, 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.

In fact, those who put down $50 on Roberts' top-four leaderboard picks are up $1,700 on the year, buoyed by Alex Bowman's big win at Chicago at 30-1 odds -- Roberts had the huge underdog in his top four.

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 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 Gander RV 400 at Pocono Raceway. The green flag drops at 3 p.m. ET.

One shocker: Roberts is high on Chase Elliott, a 16-1 dark horse who finished fourth at Pocono in June and has a history of strong racing at the Pennsylvania track. Roberts says his car will be top-notch and he has a real chance to compete for the checkered flag here.

"His 10.8 average finish in seven starts at Pocono is second-best among all active drivers," Roberts told SportsLine. "He also won a 2013 ARCA race there. He'll have a good set-up this weekend that can win."

For the win, Roberts is high on a big underdog that's run well at this track and those similar to Pocono. He's trending upward and Roberts says Sunday could be his day. Anyone who backs this driver could hit it BIG.

So who wins the 2019 Gander RV 400? And which driver stuns NASCAR? ... Join SportsLine right now to see Micah Roberts' full leaderboard for the Gander RV 400, all from the nation's premier NASCAR betting expert who's up HUGE year after year!
