The last six races at Dover International Speedway have produced six different winners. Accordingly, there should be plenty of excitement on Sunday if the NASCAR Cup Series returns to Dover for the 2019 Gander RV 400. This is actually the first year with brand new car packages that contain 750 horsepower and no aero ducts. They have been used four other situations this season, but this is going to be the first for NASCAR at Dover. Kyle Busch, who directs the NASCAR standings and has won three of the 10 season races so far, is the 3-1 favorite in the latest 2019 Gander RV 400 chances. He’s followed closely with Kevin Harvick (4-1), who won here in 2018 and 2015, while pole-sitter Chase Elliott is 6-1. Then you will find a trio of contenders sitting in 8-1 NASCAR at Dover odds in Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano and Martin Truex Jr.. Anything can happen in the high-banked, one-mile oval at Dover, so before making your own 2019 Gander RV 400 selections, you’ll want to find the latest NASCAR predictions from handicapper Micah Roberts, the mythical Vegas bookmaker who initiated wagering on racing.
Roberts went with Jimmie Johnson as a hefty 25-1 long shot at the season-opening Advance Auto Parts Clash. The result: Johnson survived a huge crash and proceeded to win the rain-shortened race as Roberts’ followers raked it in. In the TicketGuardian 500 in Phoenix last month, Roberts nailed Busch in 4-1 odds over the heavily favored Harvick, and had an eye catching eight of the top 10 right. At the Car Club 400, he had nine of the top 10 right.
Roberts entered the 2019 NASCAR season after completing big-time from the black at 2018. Those who wagered $100 on each of his picks annually have $1,750 in gain to show for this. His biggest wins came when he moved against the grain, taking Keselowski in 12-1 to win against the South Point 400 at Las Vegas at the opening race of the NASCAR playoffs and going with Logano, also 12-1, to take the First Data 500 in Martinsville. He also pinpointed four of Harvick’s nine show successes and three of Busch’s nine wins. Anyone who’s following his picks is up huge year after year.
Now, he has examined Sunday’s Gander RV 400 lineup from every possible angle and locked in his high 2019 NASCAR in Dover picks. You may see them in SportsLine.
We can tell you that Roberts is high on Ryan Blaney, a dark horse at 20-1 NASCAR odds to win at Dover. Blaney hasn’t had much success in Dover, but the automobile package that is in play here is the exact same one at other tracks he’s excelled at.
“This race is about the car, along with his 750 HP package has been dominant at times in 2019 like top 94 laps at Phoenix and finishing third, finishing fourth in Martinsville, and directing a race-high 158 laps at Bristol before finishing fourth,” Roberts told SportsLine.
