Everything comes down to Sunday, since the 2018 NASCAR Championship will be Determined at Homestead-Miami Speedway at 3 p.m. ET for Its 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 in the latest 2018 NASCAR at Miami chances, followed by Truex (6-1) and Logano (10-1). Harvick, Busch and Truex have each won titles recently, although Logano is at the finals for the third time. Together with the 2018 Dragon Energy NASCAR Cup online, and other motorists in the field playing for pleasure, you’ll want to check out exactly what former Vegas bookmaker and NASCAR handicapper Micah Roberts has to say before bending in your own 2018 NASCAR in Miami picks.
Roberts pinpointed 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. from the way on the final lap for the huge victory.
Roberts also chose the winners of first two races of the 2018 NASCAR Playoffs, calling for Brad Keselowski to win Vegas at 12-1 odds and for Busch to procure his seventh win of the season, which he did in Richmond after beginning from the 11th place. Roberts also picked Truex Jr. five weeks back at Charlotte, that had been in line to win before Jimmie Johnson wiped out him on the final lap.
From the 2017 playoffs, Roberts picked nine of 10 winners. There was no fluke: In 2016, he told readers to rear Hamlin in 15-1 at the Daytona 500. The result: Hamlin edged Truex for the checkered flag. Roberts also nailed Hamlin at 40-1 to win at Watkins Glen later that year.
Now, he’s examined the 2018 NASCAR Cup championship field from every possible angle and then locked in his Ford EcoBoost 400 picks. You can see his whole projected leaderboard just at SportsLine.
We could tell you he’s not going with Truex, who won this race one year ago, to triumph in Miami. In fact, Roberts says Truex is closed out of the top four. Truex hasn’t won since July and has failed to finish better than third since the beginning of August. He has seized four checkered flags this year, however, Roberts says that the are far better worth on the NASCAR in Miami odds board.
Rather, one of those 2018 Ford EcoBoost 400 picks he likes to finish near the front: Brad Keselowski, a 15-1 darkhorse that has been a front-runner on 1.5-mile tracks previously.
“He’s directed at 26 laps in his last four starts on 1.5-mile tracks using a third-place ending at Kentucky, a win at vegas, a sixth-place jog at Kansas, along with a 12th-place at Texas,” Roberts told SportsLine. “He was at Homestead last season and his best was third, twice.”
For the triumph, Roberts is moving with a driver he has been eyeing all season long to acquire the Ford EcoBoost 400. His also offers a non-championship competitor finishing at the top four, and anyone who backs them can hit it big.
