The 2020 Daytona 500 resumes at 4 p.m. ET on Monday after rain stopped Sunday's action after just 20 laps. With sportsbooks updating their odds for the remainder of the race on Monday, our proven projection model simulated this event 10,000 times and came up with a surprising leaderboard.
Developed by daily Fantasy pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction computer model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking into account a slew of factors including track history and recent results.
The model crushed its NASCAR picks last year, including calling 2019 Daytona 500 champion Denny Hamlin a top-four contender from the start. It also nailed eight of the top 10 drivers at the Pennzoil 400, which included putting winner Joey Logano in its projected top five, and then hit nine of the top 10 drivers at the Go Bowling at The Glen. Additionally, it called Martin Truex Jr. to win the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma. Anybody who has followed it has seen HUGE returns.
For NASCAR at Daytona 2020 on Monday, we can tell you the model is high on Ryan Blaney, who is currently in 23rd place and going off at 16-1 in the updated NASCAR odds. And a massive shocker: Chase Elliott, who is tied for the third-lowest odds at 13-1, barely cracks the top 10.
The model also is targeting two OTHER drivers with NASCAR at Daytona odds of 16-1 or longer to make a serious run at winning it all. Anyone who backs them could hit it BIG. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who they are before locking in any NASCAR picks.
So who wins the 2020 Daytona 500? And which long shots stun NASCAR on Monday? ... Join SportsLine right now to see the full projected final leaderboard for NASCAR at Daytona, all from the model that has crushed its NASCAR picks!
