After opening at 3-1, Kyle Busch is the 3-2 favorite for NASCAR at Watkins Glen 2018, which conducts Sunday at 3 p.m. ET. It’s the second road course race of the year and Denny Hamlin, recorded at 10-1 NASCAR in Watkins Glen odds, won the pole Saturday. Busch leads all active drivers with four road course wins, including two at Watkins Glen, but his last win at The Glen has been back in 2013. Martin Truex Jr. won GoBowling at The Glen last year and is listed at 4-1 odds. Prior to making any 2018 NASCAR at Watkins Glen choices, you need to find out exactly what SportsLine’s advanced computer version must say.
The model, built by DFS expert Mike McClure, has an established track record in a number of 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 are in his blood, and his model has been crushing its 2018 NASCAR picks.
The model has already made several huge calls this year, nailing the 1-2 finish for Busch and Harvick at the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 as well as Harvick’s win at the KC Masterpiece 400. In addition, it pinpointed five of the top 10 at Bristol and a couple of the top five in Daytona, simply to name a few. Anybody following its picks this year is way, way up.
Now the 2018 NASCAR at Watkins Glen field is secured, SportsLine simulated the occasion 10,000 times and the results were unexpected.
1 surprising pick from the model for GoBowling at The Glen 2018: Chase Elliott, obtaining the third-best NASCAR in Watkins Glen chances to win at 6-1, does not sniff the top 10. He’s a driver to avoid on Sunday despite his stellar starting place of third.
Elliott remains in search of the first career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win. He has cracked the top 10 in four of his last seven starts, but was just 19th at Chicago and 34th in Daytona last month. Last year in Watkins Glen, Elliott again started near the top in fourth, but finished a disappointing 13th. He clocked the fastest rate (124.520 miles ) at the final practices for GoBowling in The Glen 2018, but the version says he is a favorite to fade.
Another shocker: Truex Jr., getting the second-best odds at 4-1, does not even finish in the top five.
He has had lots of success on road tracks, such as winning final year. But he is a risky pick at these chances because he has an average finish position of 12th in Watkins Glen in his career, and it has finished 10th or worse in three of his past six races here. There are better values out there within this affluent Go Bowling at The Glen area.
Rather, the model is targeting two enormous underdogs with odds longer than 30-1 that are poised to make a serious run in the checkered flag, such as a monster long haul. Anyone who bets on such underdogs could strike it wealthy.
