After opening at 3-1, Kyle Busch is the 3-2 favorite for NASCAR at Watkins Glen 2018, which runs Sunday at 3 p.m. ET. It is the second road course race of the year and Denny Hamlin, recorded at 10-1 NASCAR in Watkins Glen odds, won the pole on Saturday. Busch leads all active drivers with four road course wins, including two in Watkins Glen, but his last win in The Glen was back in 2013. Martin Truex Jr. won GoBowling in The Glen this past year and can be recorded at 4-1 odds. Prior to making any 2018 NASCAR in Watkins Glen choices, you need to find out what SportsLine’s innovative computer version has to say.
The model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has an established track record in multiple sports. It also forces McClure’s DFS projections, which have led him to more than $1 million in career winnings.
McClure, who has a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Significant racing events like this have been in his blood, and his model was beating its 2018 NASCAR picks.
The model has already made several enormous calls this season, nailing the 1-2 finish for Busch and Harvick at the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 as well as Harvick’s win in the KC Masterpiece 400. In addition, it pinpointed five of the top 10 at Bristol and two of the top five in Daytona, simply to mention a few. Anyone following its selections this year is way, way up.
Now that the 2018 NASCAR in Watkins Glen field is secured, SportsLine mimicked the event 10,000 times and the results were so surprising.
1 surprising pick from the model for GoBowling in The Glen 2018: Chase Elliott, obtaining the third-best NASCAR in Watkins Glen odds to triumph at 6-1, doesn’t sniff the best 10. He is a driver to prevent on Sunday despite his stellar starting place of third.
Elliott remains in search of the initial career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series triumph. He has cracked the top 10 in four of his last seven starts, but was only 19th in Chicago and 34th in Daytona last month. Last year in Watkins Glen, Elliott again began close to the top in fourth, but finished a disappointing 13th. He clocked the fastest rate (124.520 mph) at the final clinics for GoBowling at The Glen 2018, but the model says he’s a popular to fade.
Another shocker: Truex Jr., obtaining the second-best chances at 4-1, doesn’t even finish in the top five.
He has had lots of success on road tracks, such as winning last year. But he is a risky choice at these odds because he’s got an average finish position of 12th at Watkins Glen in his career, and it has finished 10th or worse in three of his last six races here. There are better values out there in this loaded Go Bowling at The Glen field.
Instead, the version is targeting two huge underdogs with odds longer than 30-1 who are poised to make a serious run in the checkered flag, including a monster long haul. Anyone who bets on these underdogs could strike it rich.
