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’s the second road course race of the year and Denny Hamlin, recorded 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 last win in The Glen has been back in 2013. Martin Truex Jr. won GoBowling in The Glen last year and can be listed at 4-1 odds. Prior to making any 2018 NASCAR at Watkins Glen picks, you need to find out what SportsLine’s advanced computer version must say.

The model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has a proven track record in a number of sports. In addition, it powers McClure’s DFS projections, that 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 in this way have been in his blood, and his model has been crushing its 2018 NASCAR picks.

The model has made several enormous calls this year, nailing the 1-2 finish for Busch and Harvick in 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 in Bristol and a couple of the top five in Daytona, simply to mention a few. Anyone following its picks this season is way, way up.

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

1 sudden pick from the model for GoBowling at The Glen 2018: Chase Elliott, obtaining the third-best NASCAR at Watkins Glen chances to triumph at 6-1, does not sniff the best 10. He is a driver to prevent on Sunday despite his leading starting position of third.

Elliott is still in search of the initial career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series triumph. He’s cracked the top 10 in four of the past seven starts, but was only 19th in Chicago and 34th in Daytona last month. Last year at Watkins Glen, Elliott again began near the top in fourth, but finished a disappointing 13th. He clocked the fastest speed (124.520 miles ) in the final practices for GoBowling in The Glen 2018, but the model says he’s a favorite to fade.

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

He has had plenty of success on street tracks, such as winning final year. But he’s a risky pick at these chances 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 here. There are better values available within this Go Bowling in The Glen field.

Rather, the version is targeting two huge underdogs with chances longer than 30-1 that are poised to make a serious run at the checkered flag, including a monster long haul. Anyone who bets on such underdogs could strike it wealthy.
