2022 NASCAR at the Brickyard odds, Verizon 200 picks, TV: Model releases Indianapolis road course predictions

With just five races remaining until the start of the NASCAR Playoffs, the Cup Series will head to Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday for the 2022 Verizon 200. NASCAR made its debut on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course last season, with part-time Cup driver A.J. Allmendinger capturing his second career victory. The current leader in the NASCAR Xfinity Series standings will return to defend his NASCAR at Indianapolis title and has two top-10 finishes in 10 Cup starts this year. The 2022 NASCAR at the Brickyard green flag drops at 2:30 p.m. ET on Sunday on NBC (stream now on FuboTV).

Allmendinger has become a road specialist for Matthew Kaulig’s team and is 16-1 in the 2022 Verizon 200 odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Hendrick Motorsports teammates Chase Elliott and Kyle Larson are the two favorites in the 2022 NASCAR at Indianapolis odds, with Elliott at 7-2 and Larson at 11-2. Before scouring the 2022 Verizon 200 starting lineup and making any 2022 NASCAR Brickyard predictions, be sure to see the latest NASCAR at Indianapolis picks from SportsLine’s proven projection model.

Developed by daily Fantasy pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking into account factors such as track history and recent results.

In the 2021 season, McClure nailed Martin Truex Jr. to win at Martinsville for a strong 3-1 payout. Then, it called Chase Elliott to win at Road America for a 5-2 payout. McClure’s model also called Larson’s win at Texas for an 11-4 payout and his win at Kansas for a 9-4 payout in back-to-back weeks before nailing Larson to win the season-finale in Phoenix to claim the 2021 NASCAR Cup Championship.

In total, it nailed five of Larson’s wins during a historic season and has also gone 15-9 on its head-to-head matchup predictions to start the 2022 season. Earlier this season, it was high on Ross Chastain to win in Austin, giving him a far better shot to win than his 40-1 odds implied. The model was also high on Joey Logano before he won as a 15-1 underdog at Darlington and high on him again when he returned 14-1 for his win in St. Louis. Anyone who followed its lead on those plays saw huge returns on their NASCAR picks.

Now, the model simulated the 2022 NASCAR at the Brickyard race 10,000 times. Head to SportsLine to see the complete projected 2022 Verizon 200 leaderboard.

Top 2022 NASCAR at the Brickyard predictions

One surprise: the model is high on Martin Truex, Jr., even though he’s a 16-1 long shot in the latest 2022 NASCAR at the Brickyard odds. He’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. The current bubble boy in the race for the NASCAR playoff picture, Truex sits fifth in the standings. However, because he’s winless on the season, he’d be knocked out of the postseason if there are any other first-time winners over the next five weeks.

Truex has four road wins in his career and has cracked the top 10 in exactly half of his 42 career Cup starts on road courses. He’s also coming off multiple strong runs, leading two laps and finishing seventh last week at Pocono and leading 172 laps on his way to a fourth-place finish in New Hampshire. See which other NASCAR underdogs to pick here.

And a massive shocker: Tyler Reddick, one of the Vegas favorites at 10-1, stumbles big-time and fails to crack the top five. There are far better values in the 2022 Verizon 200 starting grid. Reddick captured his first career victory in the last road race in the NASCAR Cup Series at Elkhart Lake and saw his fourth-place finish at Pocono improve to second after Hamlin and Busch were disqualified last week.

However, he also had a 35th-place finish in the prior road race at Sonoma and struggled at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course last season. Reddick finished 21st despite starting 11th and leading six laps during the race. The model doesn’t see a lot of value in playing him as the fourth favorite on Sunday. See which other favorites to avoid here.

How to make 2022 NASCAR at Indianapolis picks

The model is also targeting three other drivers with 2022 NASCAR at the Brickyard odds of 15-1 or longer to make a serious run at the checkered flag. Anyone who backs these drivers could hit it big. You can see all of the model’s NASCAR picks over at SportsLine.
