Bristol Motor Speedway has been generous to Kyle Busch over the years, as he has recorded 22 victories in 69 career starts on the track across all three NASCAR series. He is the active leader with eight Cup Series wins at Bristol, including five in the spring race. Busch will attempt to add to that total in a unique situation on Monday when he participates in the 2021 Food City Dirt Race, the first of its kind in the Cup Series in 51 years. The 35-year-old is coming off a fifth-place finish at Atlanta last weekend and has posted three top-10s over his last four starts.

Busch is listed at 22-1, while Kyle Larson is the 11-5 favorite in the latest 2021 Food City Dirt Race odds from William Hill Sportsbook for Monday's delayed start. Christopher Bell is 13-2, Chase Briscoe and Truck Series veteran Stewart Friesen are 10-1 and Austin Dillon rounds out the top five 2021 Food City Dirt Race contenders at 12-1. The race is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. ET. You'll want to check out the NASCAR at Bristol predictions from Micah Roberts, the legendary Vegas bookmaker who pioneered wagering on racing, before locking in any 2021 Food City Dirt Race picks. 

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.

Now, Roberts has analyzed the field and odds for Sunday's NASCAR at Bristol 2021 race. He's sharing his winner and leaderboard right here.

2021 Food City Dirt Race expert picks

One shocker: Roberts is low on Chase Elliott, even though he's one of the top 2021 Food City Dirt Race contenders at 20-1. In fact, Roberts says Elliott barely even cracks the top 20.

"No one knows a ton about our cars on dirt," Elliott told reporters. "To me, it's going to be very different from your average dirt event that you see on a Friday or Saturday night across the country because these cars aren't really made for that."

Another curveball: Roberts is high on Joey Logano even though he's a long shot at 30-1 in the latest NASCAR at Bristol odds. The 30-year-old from Connecticut has come up with strong performances in the Cup Series at Bristol, posting two wins, six top-five finishes and 10 top-10s in 24 starts. The 2018 series champion, Logano began preparing for Monday's race by making his dirt debut at Volusia Speedway in Barbervil3le, Florida early last month and took part in the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series virtual race at Bristol last Wednesday, finishing 14th after producing the fastest qualifying lap.

"I bet him this week at these odds because of how well he's done in the two races this season using the package with engines producing 750 horsepower," Roberts told SportsLine. "Logano was runner-up in both and led the most laps combined at the Daytona Road Course and Phoenix."

How to make 2021 Food City Dirt Race predictions

Roberts is high on a massive long shot who has a background in dirt racing. This driver is being underestimated by oddsmakers, and anyone who backs him could hit it big. You can only see who it is here.
