It all comes down to Sunday, as 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 will be the racers who make up this year’s NASCAR Championship 4. Harvick and Busch are 11-4 co-favorites in the most current 2018 NASCAR in Miami chances, followed by Truex (6-1) and Logano (10-1). Harvick, Busch and Truex have each won titles lately, although Logano is in the forefront for the next time. With the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup online, along with other motorists in the area playing for pleasure, you will want to check out what former Vegas bookmaker and NASCAR handicapper Micah Roberts has to say before locking in your 2018 NASCAR at Miami picks.
Roberts pinpointed the NASCAR Playoffs race at Martinsville three weeks before, calling for Logano to take the checkered flag at Martinsville despite being a 12-1 underdog. Logano bumped Truex Jr. out of the way on the last lap for the huge victory.
Roberts also picked the winners of two races of this 2018 NASCAR Playoffs, calling for Brad Keselowski to succeed Vegas at 12-1 odds and for Busch to procure his seventh win of the season, he did in Richmond after beginning from the 11th place. Roberts also picked Truex Jr. five weeks ago at Charlotte, who was in line to win before Jimmie Johnson wiped him out on the last lap.
In the 2017 playoffs, Roberts chose nine of 10 winners. That was no fluke: In 2016, he told readers to rear Hamlin at 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 locked in his Ford EcoBoost 400 picks. You can view his whole projected leaderboard only at SportsLine.
We can tell you he isn’t going with Truex, who won this race a year ago, to win in Miami. In fact, Roberts says Truex is closed out of the top four. Truex has not won since July and has failed to finish better than third since the beginning of August. He has captured four checkered flags this year, however, Roberts says that the are far better worth on the NASCAR at Miami odds board.
Rather, one of the 2018 Ford EcoBoost 400 picks he enjoys to finish near the front: Brad Keselowski, a 15-1 darkhorse that has been a front-runner on 1.5-mile tracks in the past.
“He has directed at 26 laps in his final 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 seventh at Homestead last year and his best was third, twice.”
For the win, Roberts is going with a driver he’s been eyeing all season long to acquire the Ford EcoBoost 400. His also offers a non-championship competitor finishing at the top four, and anybody who backs them can strike it big.
