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, Roberts 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 .63 seconds 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 Overton's 400 at Chicagoland Speedway (2:30 p.m. ET) and released his top 20 finishers in order. We can tell you he's not picking Harvick, the favorite at 9/4, noting that while he won his first two races at Chicagoland, he hasn't won any of the following 15.
Instead, Roberts is putting his chips on a driver with momentum and past success at Chicagoland and similar tracks. He's also put a monumental long shot in his top five, a racer who has been close but has yet to secure that elusive first win of 2018. He's in a prime spot to steal the show and bring a massive payout.
