NASCAR: NASCAR Cup Series at Martinsville

Team Penske's Joey Logano will start from the pole on Saturday when the green flag drops on the 2020 FireKeepers Casino 400, the first of two NASCAR Cup Series races this weekend at Michigan International Speedway. Logano has two wins, five top-five and nine top-10 finishes this season. He will be joined on the front row for the 156-lap, 312-mile race by Denny Hamlin. Cup Series leader Kevin Harvick is the 13-4 favorite in the 2020 FireKeepers Casino 400 odds from William Hill.

Harvick is followed by Hamlin (11-2), Ryan Blaney (7-1), Brad Keselowski (8-1) and Martin Truex Jr. (17-2) in the 2020 FireKeepers Casino 400 starting lineup, and the green flag drops at 4 p.m. ET. With drivers unable to practice or qualify before the race on Saturday, you'll want to check out the FireKeepers Casino 400 predictions from SportsLine's Micah Roberts, the legendary Vegas bookmaker who pioneered wagering on racing, before locking in any 2020 FireKeepers Casino 400 picks of your own.

Roberts is among the nation's premier NASCAR betting experts, 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 eventual winner Logano at 13-2  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 month.

Roberts also crushed the 2019 NASCAR season. Those who wagered $100 on his predicted winner in each of the 40 NASCAR races last year (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 picks in those races (an investment of $8,000) were up a head-turning $3,400. Anyone who has followed his NASCAR picks is up huge year after year.

Now, Roberts has analyzed the field and odds for Saturday's 2020 FireKeepers Casino 400. He's sharing his winner and leaderboard only at SportsLine

2020 NASCAR at Michigan expert predictions

One shocker: Roberts is completely against Tyler Reddick, even though he is 15th in the Cup Series standings with 469 points. In fact, Roberts says Reddick doesn't even crack the top 20. The 24-year-old driver for Richard Childress Racing is in his rookie season in the Cup Series and is the defending back-to-back NASCAR Xfinity Series champion. 

Reddick has two top-five and seven top-10 finishes this season but has yet to win. He is coming off a 10th-place finish at New Hampshire.

Another curveball: Roberts is high on Alex Bowman, even though he's a long shot at 40-1. The Hendrick Motorsports driver has one win, two top-five and six top-10 finishes this season. He is coming off a 15th-place finish at New Hampshire. 

"He had his best results at Michigan last season with 10th-place finishes in each race," Roberts told SportsLine. "He won at Fontana in March, which would be the main reason to bet him here. Fontana and Michigan are almost identical two-mile layouts."

Roberts is also high on a double-digit long shot who "will win one of the two races at Michigan this weekend." This driver is being underestimated by oddsmakers, and anyone who backs him could hit it big. You can only see who it is here
