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


In the 2021 season, McClure nailed Martin Truex Jr. to win at Martinsville for a hefty 3-1 payout. He then called out Chase Elliott to win at Road America for a payout of 5-2. McClure’s model also called Larson’s win at Texas by a payoff of 11-4 and his win at Kansas by a payoff of 9-4 in back-to-back weeks before pinning Larson to win the season finale at Phoenix to claim the title. 2021 NASCAR Cup Championship.

In all, he had five of Larson’s wins during a historic season and has also gone 15-9 in his head-to-head predictions to start the 2022 season. Earlier this season, it was high on Ross Chastain to win in Austin, giving him a better chance of winning than his 40-1 odds implied. The model was also very into Joey Logano before he won as a 15-1 underdog at Darlington. Anyone who followed his lead on those plays saw huge gains in their NASCAR picks.

The best Coca-Cola 600 predictions for 2022

One surprise: The model is very interested in Tyler Reddick, even though he’s a long shot at 14-1 in the latest NASCAR 2022 odds in Charlotte. It’s a goal for anyone looking for a big payday. In nine races on the Charlotte Motor Speedway oval in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Cup Series, Reddick has seven top-10 finishes under his belt.

He won the 2019 Alsco Uniforms 300 in an Xfinity car and has been a factor in all three of his Cup starts in the Coca-Cola 600. Reddick has never finished worse than 14th in the race and has a pair of top-10 finishes. including a ninth-place finish after leading six laps last year. The 26-year-old is still looking for his first Cup victory and is in a position where he will likely need one to qualify for the postseason again and Charlotte looks like a solid opportunity for the Richard Childress Racing driver.

And one big surprise: William Byron, a 10-1 Vegas favorite, stumbles big and barely cracks the top 10. There are much better values ​​on the starting grid for the 2022 Coca-Cola 600. Byron and Ross Chastain are the only two drivers with multiple wins this season and that guarantees he will be in the 2022 NASCAR Playoffs, but he has been finishing poorly lately.

Byron has been outside the top 10 in each of his last five starts and was particularly disappointing with his 1.5-mile setup at Kansas two weeks ago, finishing 16th despite leading 25 laps. Byron was outside the top 10 again at Texas for the All-Star Race last week and has been outside the top 10 in three of his five NASCAR Cup Series races at Charlotte.
