It all comes down to Sunday, as the 2018 NASCAR Championship will be Determined at Homestead-Miami Speedway at 3 p.m. ET for the Ford EcoBoost 400.
Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr. and Joey Logano are the racers who make up this year’s NASCAR Championship 4. Harvick and Busch are 11-4 co-favorites from the latest 2018 NASCAR in Miami chances, followed by Truex (6-1) and Logano (10-1). Harvick, Busch and Truex have won titles lately, while Logano is in the finals for the third time. With the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup on the line, along with other drivers in the area playing for pride, you’ll want to check out exactly what former Vegas bookmaker and NASCAR handicapper Micah Roberts must say before locking in your own 2018 NASCAR in Miami picks.
Roberts nailed the NASCAR Playoffs race at Martinsville three weeks ago, calling for Logano to take the checkered flag in Martinsville despite being a 12-1 underdog. Logano bumped Truex Jr. out of the way on the final lap for the huge victory.
Roberts also picked the winners of two races of this 2018 NASCAR Playoffs, calling for Brad Keselowski to win Vegas at 12-1 odds and for Busch to secure his seventh win of the year, which he did in Richmond after starting from the 11th spot. Roberts also chose Truex Jr. five months ago at Charlotte, that had been in line to win prior to Jimmie Johnson wiped out him on the last lap.
In the 2017 playoffs, Roberts chose nine of 10 winners. There was no fluke: In 2016, he advised readers to rear Hamlin in 15-1 in the Daytona 500. The end result: Hamlin edged Truex for the checkered flag. Roberts also nailed Hamlin at 40-1 to win at Watkins Glen after that year.
Now, he’s analyzed the 2018 NASCAR Cup championship area from every possible angle and then secured in his Ford EcoBoost 400 picks. It is possible to view his entire projected leaderboard only at SportsLine.
We could tell you he’s not going with Truex, who won this race a year ago, to win in Miami. In reality, Roberts states Truex is closed out of the top four. Truex has not won since July and has failed to finish better than third since the start of August. He’s seized four checkered flags this year, but Roberts says that the are far better values on the NASCAR in Miami odds board.
Rather, among the 2018 Ford EcoBoost 400 selections he likes to finish close to the front: Brad Keselowski, a 15-1 darkhorse that has been a front-runner on 1.5-mile paths in the past.
“He has led at 26 laps at his final four starts on 1.5-mile tracks using a third-place ending at Kentucky, a triumph at vegas, a sixth-place run at Kansas, and a 12th-place in Texas,” Roberts told SportsLine. “He was seventh at Homestead last season and his best was third, twice.”
For the triumph, Roberts is going with a motorist he’s been eyeing all season long to win the Ford EcoBoost 400. His also offers a non-championship contender finishing in the top four, and anyone who backs them could strike it big.
