Chase Elliott's history on road courses is one most drivers can only wish they had. The 26-year-old has recorded seven wins, 12 top-five finishes and 15 top-10s over 21 road starts in the NASCAR Cup Series. He has also posted seven top-10s, including five top-fives, in seven Xfinity Series races while winning his only road start in the Truck Series. After winning at Nashville last weekend, Elliott will try to register back-to-back victories for the second time in his Cup Series career when he competes in the 2022 Kwik Trip 250 at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin on Sunday. The former series champion finished in the top 10 in each of his two road-course starts this year, as he was fourth at Austin and eighth at Sonoma.

Elliott is the 9-2 favorite in the latest 2022 Kwik Trip 250 odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Reigning Cup Series champion Kyle Larson is 5-1 and Ross Chastain is 7-1, while Kyle Busch and A.J. Allmendinger round out the top 2022 NASCAR at Road America contenders at 10-1. You'll want to check out the NASCAR at Road America predictions from Micah Roberts, the legendary Vegas bookmaker who pioneered wagering on racing, before locking in any 2022 Kwik Trip 250 picks of your own.

Roberts, a former Vegas bookmaker, was the first to offer expanded NASCAR betting, and now hands out NASCAR winners to his followers on SportsLine. Roberts is the nation's premier NASCAR betting expert, and his top pick, Elliott, won this race when it was known as the Jockey Made in America 250 last season.

He also correctly predicted the 2021 Coca-Cola 600 winner, hitting Larson's victory at 11-2 odds, and was on point by targeting Elliott as the winner of the EchoPark Texas Grand Prix at 8-5 odds the previous week. In addition, Roberts nailed last year's GEICO 500 when he predicted Brad Keselowski to win at 14-1 odds. Anyone who has followed his picks has cashed tickets.

Now, Roberts has analyzed the field and odds for Sunday's NASCAR at Road America 2022 race and just locked in his picks and predictions. He's only sharing his winner and projected leaderboard at SportsLine.

2022 Kwik Trip 250 expert picks

One shocker: Roberts is low on Kyle Busch, even though he's one the top 2022 Kwik Trip 250 contenders. In fact, Roberts says Busch, who finished third at Road America last year, doesn't even crack the top 15.

"The new car hasn't been good to him on road courses this year," Roberts told SportsLine. "He was 30th at Sonoma four weeks ago. He may be a driver I look to bet against in driver matchups."

Another curveball: Roberts is high on Austin Cindric, even though he's a 15-1 long shot in the latest 2022 NASCAR at Road America odds. The 23-year-old from Ohio has had a solid rookie season thus far, recording a victory, two top-five finishes and four top-10s with 58 laps led. Cindric was fifth on the road course at Sonoma on June 12 and enjoyed success at Road America while in the Xfinity Series, where he finished eighth or better in three of his five starts.

"While in the Xfinity Series, five of his 13 career wins came on road courses," Roberts told SportsLine. "One of those came at Road America in 2020." See more Kwik Trip 500 expert picks here.

Roberts is high on a massive long shot who "may offer the most value among all drivers this week." This driver is being underestimated by oddsmakers, and anyone who backs him could hit it big. You can only see who it is here.
