Ryan Blaney was able to end a 59-race winless streak last week in Charlotte to move up to second in the 2023 NASCAR standings and now he'll set his sights on the 2023 Enjoy Illinois 300 on Sunday. World Wide Technology Raceway is often referred to as Gateway, and the 1.25-mile oblong oval has hosted 37 NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series races. The NASCAR Cup Series made its first sojourn to the Illinois side of suburban St. Louis last year with Joey Logano earning the win.

Logano also finished second in his only other start at Gateway in a 2008 Xfinity Series race. The defending NASCAR Cup Series champion is listed at 10-1 in the 2023 Enjoy Illinois 300 odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Meanwhile, 2021 NASCAR Cup Series champion Kyle Larson is the 4-1 favorite in the NASCAR at Gateway odds. Other 2023 NASCAR at Gateway contenders include William Byron (11-2), Martin Truex Jr. (8-1) and Denny Hamlin (8-1). Before scouring the 2023 Enjoy Illinois 300 starting lineup and making any 2023 NASCAR at Gateway predictions, be sure to see the latest 2023 Enjoy Illinois 300 picks from SportsLine's proven NASCAR model.

Developed by daily Fantasy pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking into account factors such as track history and recent results.

McClure's model is off to a red-hot start this season, already nailing Martin Truex Jr.'s Clash win (20-1), Joey Logano's Duel win (8-1), Kyle Busch's Fontana victory (10-1), Denny Hamlin's triumph in Kansas (6-1) and Kyle Larson's wins at Martinsville (6-1) and the NASCAR All-Star Race (13-2). In Austin, it listed Tyler Reddick as one of its best values and he went on to win for a 10-1 payout. It also impressively nailed five of Kyle Larson's wins during his historic season in 2021. All told, the model has nailed a whopping 12 winners since 2021. Anyone who followed its lead on those NASCAR picks saw huge returns.

Top 2023 Enjoy Illinois 300 predictions

One surprise: the model is high on Tyler Reddick, even though he's a 15-1 longshot in the latest 2023 NASCAR at Gateway odds. He's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. The 27-year-old has been on a clear and methodical path to stardom throughout his career.

He finished second in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series as a 19-year-old and then won two NASCAR Xfinity Series titles before earning a full-time ride in the NASCAR Cup Series. In the three years since, he's been the runner-up for NASCAR Rookie of the Year honors and then made the NASCAR playoffs in each of the last two seasons. He captured his first three Cup wins last season and has already added a fourth this year. See who else to back at SportsLine.

And a massive shocker: William Byron, one of the Vegas favorites at 11-2, stumbles big-time and doesn't even crack the top five. There are far better values in the 2023 Enjoy Illinois 300 starting lineup, according to the model. The 25-year-old already has a career-high three victories on the year, but he didn't fare well in the inaugural NASCAR Cup Series race at Gateway last season.

Byron finished 19th and only ran 37 of 240 laps in the top 15 in a race where he was never truly a factor. Even in a season in which he's looked dominant at times, the model doesn't see value at his current price point. See which other drivers to avoid at SportsLine.
