After launching 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’s the second road course race of the season and Denny Hamlin, listed at 10-1 NASCAR at Watkins Glen chances, won the pole on Saturday. Busch leads all active drivers with four road course wins, including two in Watkins Glen, but his final win at The Glen has been back in 2013. Martin Truex Jr. won GoBowling in The Glen this past year and is recorded at 4-1 odds. Before you make any 2018 NASCAR in Watkins Glen choices, you want to find out what SportsLine’s advanced computer version has to say.

The model, built by DFS expert Mike McClure, has a proven history in multiple sports. It also forces McClure’s DFS projections, that have led him to over $1 million in career winnings.

McClure, with a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Significant racing events like this are in his blood, and his version was 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 also as Harvick’s win at the KC Masterpiece 400. It also nailed five of the top 10 in Bristol and a couple of the top five in Daytona, just to name a couple. Anyone following its picks this year is way, way up.

Now the 2018 NASCAR at Watkins Glen area is locked, SportsLine mimicked the occasion 10,000 times and the results were unexpected.

1 sudden pick from the version for GoBowling at The Glen 2018: Chase Elliott, getting the third-best NASCAR in Watkins Glen odds to triumph at 6-1, doesn’t sniff the best 10. He’s a driver to prevent on Sunday despite his stellar beginning place of third.

Elliott is still in search of the first career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win. He has cracked the top 10 in four of the past seven starts, but was only 19th at Chicago and 34th at 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 miles ) in the final practices for GoBowling at The Glen 2018, but the version says he’s a popular to fade.

Another shocker: Truex Jr., getting the second-best odds at 4-1, does not even finish in the top five.

He’s had lots of success on street tracks, including winning last year. But he’s a risky choice at these odds because he’s got an average finish position of 12th at Watkins Glen in his career and has completed 10th or worse in three of the last six races . There are better values available in this affluent Go Bowling in The Glen area.

Instead, 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 shot. Anyone who bets on these underdogs could hit it rich.
