As a Vegas bookmaker, Micah Roberts was the first to offer expanded NASCAR betting. Now he hands out NASCAR winners to his followers.
Roberts has easily picked enough winners the last few NASCAR seasons to make it worthwhile. That includes his selection of Kevin Harvick to win at Kansas Speedway four weeks ago, just the latest in a long line of checkered-flag winners picked by NASCAR's premier handicapper.
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 runner-up Kyle Larson.
Earlier this season 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 again was all over Harvick at Las Vegas as Harvick delivered another lopsided win. Six weeks ago, Roberts was very high on Clint Bowyer, who snapped his 190-race winless streak in the STP 500.
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 mammoth payouts.
Now he's locked in on one of the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway. Roberts as analyzed the entire field and released his top 20 finishers in order.
We can tell you he's not picking Harvick, the race favorite at 3/1 who's consistently competitive at Michigan but has just one win in 34 starts.
Instead, Roberts is putting his chips on a driver, with has a long history of success at a track like this. He's also put a huge longshot in his top five, a racer that could steal the show and bring a massive payout to his backers.
Roberts cites critical reasons for making all of his picks, and anyone who backs him regularly can attest to the success.
