Brett Bodine remembers the first time he watched a race at Martinsville Speedway. The Chemung, New York, driver had flown down in a single-engine plane to watch older brother Geoff compete.

Roberts is 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 Denny Hamlin's win at 10-1 odds, and he hit 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 Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 expert picks
One shocker: Roberts is low on Kyle Larson, even though he's one of the top 2021 Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 contenders at 10-1. In fact, Roberts says Larson, one of seven drivers with a victory during the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season, barely even cracks the top 10.
"This never has been a good track for him," Roberts told SportsLine. "Too much breaking. Too slow for him... I wouldn't play him in any matchups or Fantasy games."
Another curveball: Roberts is high on Christopher Bell, a monster long shot at 50-1 in the latest 2021 NASCAR at Martinsville odds. The 26-year-old was less than impressive at Martinsville as a Cup Series rookie last season, finishing 28th and 15th in two starts. Bell also is coming off back-to-back poor showings at Atlanta and Bristol, but is hoping to regain the form he displayed while using the 750-horsepower race package earlier this campaign.
What drivers said after Martinsville
Post-race reaction from drivers after Sunday's completion of the NASCAR Cup Series event at Martinsville Speedway.Martin Truex Jr. – Winner: “You know what, it was never clicking. I mean, even at times where we could have decent runs, it was like fifth, sixth, seventh. I felt that was the best I could ever run here up until, like, 2015 or so. For whatever reason, I just could never get the car to do the things I wanted it to do. It came a point where people told me ‘They can’t do those things you want it to do.’ You’re like, ‘Okay, maybe it can’t do those things and I just need to figure out how to drive it the way it is.
"Bell's best performances this season have been with this week's race package, including his first Cup Series win at the Daytona Road Course and ninth place at Phoenix," Roberts said.
