It all 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 season’s NASCAR Championship 4. Harvick and Busch are 11-4 co-favorites in the latest 2018 NASCAR at Miami odds, followed by Truex (6-1) and Logano (10-1). Harvick, Busch and Truex have won titles recently, although Logano is at the finals for the third time. Together with the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup on the line, and other drivers in the area playing for pride, you’ll want to check out exactly what former Vegas bookmaker and NASCAR handicapper Micah Roberts has to say before locking in your 2018 NASCAR in Miami picks.
Roberts nailed the NASCAR Playoffs race at Martinsville three weeks before, 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 the 2018 NASCAR Playoffs, calling for Brad Keselowski to succeed at Vegas at 12-1 odds and also for Busch to secure his seventh win of the season, he did in Richmond after beginning from the 11th place. Roberts also chose Truex Jr. five months ago at Charlotte, that had been in line to win before Jimmie Johnson wiped him out on the last lap.
In the 2017 playoffs, Roberts chose nine of 10 winners. There was no fluke: In 2016, he told readers to rear Hamlin in 15-1 in the Daytona 500. The result: Hamlin edged Truex for the checkered flag. Roberts also nailed Hamlin in 40-1 to win at Watkins Glen later that year.
Now, he has analyzed the 2018 NASCAR Cup championship field from every possible angle and secured in his Ford EcoBoost 400 picks. It is possible to see his whole projected leaderboard only at SportsLine.
We can tell you he’s not going with Truex, who won this race one year ago, to triumph in Miami. In fact, Roberts states Truex is shut 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 has captured four checkered flags this season, however, Roberts says the are far better values on the NASCAR in Miami odds board.
Instead, one of those 2018 Ford EcoBoost 400 selections he enjoys to finish near the front: Brad Keselowski, a 15-1 darkhorse who 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 with a third-place ending at Kentucky, a win at vegas, a sixth-place jog at Kansas, along with a 12th-place in Texas,” Roberts told SportsLine. “He was seventh at Homestead last year and his best was twice.”
For the win, Roberts is moving with a motorist he’s been eyeing all season long to acquire the Ford EcoBoost 400. His also has a non-championship competitor finishing at the top four, and anyone who backs them can hit it big.
