2022 NASCAR at the Brickyard race picks, odds, starting lineup, predictions from legendary Vegas expert

Kyle Larson once again was unable to record his second victory of the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season last weekend, finishing fifth at Pocono for his ninth top-five of the year. The reigning series champion has gone 19 starts without a win since capturing the checkered flag at Fontana on Feb. 27, his longest drought since 2019. Larson will make another attempt at ending the dry spell when he gets behind the wheel for the 2022 Verizon 200 at the Brickyard on Sunday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course at 2:30 p.m. ET. The 29-year-old, who has three road-course wins in his Cup Series career, finished third when this race debuted last season.

Larson is 11-2, while Chase Elliott is the 7-2 favorite in the latest 2022 Verizon 200 odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Ross Chastain is 15-2 and Tyler Reddick is 10-1 while Austin Cindric and Daniel Suarez round out the top 2022 NASCAR at Indianapolis contenders at 12-1. You’ll want to check out the NASCAR at the Brickyard predictions from Micah Roberts, the legendary Vegas bookmaker who pioneered wagering on racing, before locking in any 2022 Verizon 200 picks.

Roberts, a former Vegas bookmaker, was the first to offer expanded NASCAR betting, and now hands out NASCAR winners to his followers on SportsLine. Roberts is the nation’s premier NASCAR betting expert, and his top pick, Elliott, won the Jockey Made in America 250 last season.

He also correctly predicted the 2021 Coca-Cola 600 winner, hitting Larson’s victory at 11-2 odds, and was on point by targeting Elliott as the winner of the EchoPark Texas Grand Prix at 8-5 odds the previous week. In addition, Roberts nailed last year’s GEICO 500 when he predicted Brad Keselowski to win at 14-1 odds. Anyone who has followed his picks has cashed tickets.

Now, Roberts has analyzed the field and odds for Sunday’s NASCAR at Indianapolis 2022 race. He’s only sharing his winner and leaderboard at SportsLine.

2022 NASCAR at Indianapolis expert picks

One shocker: Roberts is low on Larson, even though he’s one of the top 2022 Verizon 200 contenders. In fact, Roberts says Larson, who finished third in this race last season, doesn’t even crack the top five.

“He still has just one victory this year,” Roberts told SportsLine. “He was third at Road America, but the big edge he had in 2021 is gone.”

Another curveball: Roberts is high on Chris Buescher, even though he’s a long shot at 30-1 in the latest 2022 NASCAR at the Brickyard odds. The 29-year-old Texan has made 215 starts since recording his lone career Cup Series victory in August 2016 at Pocono and has finished 17th or worse in three outings after being sixth at Road America on July 3. However, Buescher has recorded three top-fives on road courses in the series, including runner-up at Sonoma last month.

“Buescher has three top-five finishes in his last 12 road-course races, and he might be looking at another one this week,” Roberts told SportsLine. “The new car has been shaped to his liking on the roads.” See who else to pick here.

How to make 2022 Verizon 200 predictions

Roberts is high on a massive long shot who is “in desperation mode to make the playoffs.” This driver is being underestimated by oddsmakers, and anyone who backs him could hit it big. You can only see who it is here.
