Micah Roberts pioneered wagering on NASCAR and just locked in his 2021 Daytona 500 expert picksJimmie Johnson crossed the overtime line just before the final caution came out.
Chase Elliott began the defense of his NASCAR Cup Series championship in strong fashion, kicking off the 2021 season with a second-place finish in the Daytona 500. The 25-year-old led a race-high 44 laps at the Daytona Road Course last weekend but was unable to record his fifth straight road-course victory after a crash with just a few laps remaining. Elliott will try to earn his first win of the year when he gets behind the wheel for the 2021 Dixie Vodka 400 on Sunday. He was runner-up in this race last season and has recorded three top-10 finishes in five Cup Series starts at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Elliott is listed at 11-2 in the latest 2021 Dixie Vodka 400 odds from William Hill Sportsbook, while reigning race champion Denny Hamlin is the favorite at 9-2. Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. both are 7-1 and Kyle Larson completes the top five 2021 Dixie Vodka 400 contenders, according to oddsmakers, at 17-2. The race at Homestead-Miami Speedway is set to begin at 3:30 p.m. ET.

O'Reilly Auto Parts 253 Vegas picks, predictions, lineup 2021: Legendary expert fading Kyle Larson
Micah Roberts pioneered wagering on NASCAR and just locked in his 2021 O'Reilly Auto Parts 253 expert picks One shocker: Roberts is low on Larson, even though he's one of the top 2021 O'Reilly Auto Parts 253 favorites at 14-1. In fact, Roberts says Larson, who finished 10th in the season-opening Daytona 500, barely cracks the top 15."This will be his first run on the Daytona Road Course after missing most of last season," Roberts told SportsLine. "His only top-five finish on a road course came at Watkins Glen during his rookie year in 2014.
Roberts is arguably the nation's premier NASCAR betting expert, and his top pick won the first two races of the 2020 season. In the season-opening Daytona 500, he nailed Hamlin's win at 10-1 odds, and he hit eventual winner Joey Logano at 13-2 odds in the Pennzoil 400 a week later. He also nailed the victory by Hamlin, who wasn't one of the top three favorites, in the Toyota 500 last May.
Roberts also crushed the 2019 NASCAR season. Those who wagered $100 on his predicted winner in each of the 40 NASCAR races (an investment of $4,000) finished with a strong profit of $2,100. In addition, those who put down $50 on each of Roberts' top four choices in each of those races (an investment of $8,000) were up a head-turning $3,400. Anyone who has followed his picks is up huge year after year.

2021 Dixie Vodka 400 expert picks
One shocker: Roberts is low on Truex, even though he's one of the top 2021 Dixie Vodka 400 contenders at 7-1. In fact, Roberts says Truex, who won this race in 2017, barely cracks the top 10.
"He's had seven top-five finishes using the 550-horsepower package but no victories," Roberts told SportsLine. "He's off to a slow start this season [and] has a 10.3 average finish in 16 Homestead starts."
Another curveball: Roberts is high on Tyler Reddick, even though he's a massive 25-1 long shot in the latest 2021 NASCAR at Miami odds. The 25-year-old Californian had a strong performance in this race last year, finishing fourth in his first Cup Series start at the 1.5-mile track. In a total of seven starts at Homestead spanning the NASCAR Cup, Xfinity and Truck Series, Reddick has been sixth or better each time, with Xfinity victories in 2018 and 2019.
