NASCAR's premier drivers are back in action on Sunday, when 38 cars will fill the grid for the 2020 Dixie Vodka 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. This is the third race for the NASCAR Cup Series in the last seven days, as Kevin Harvick took the checkered flag at the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 and Martin Truex Jr. finished on top of the leaderboard at the Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500. The 2020 NASCAR at Homestead green flag drops at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Harvick, the current NASCAR Cup Series leader, is going off as the 9-2 favorite in the latest 2020 Dixie Vodka 400 odds from William Hill. Meanwhile, Kyle Busch, who's finished fourth or better in four of his last six starts, is near the top of the 2020 NASCAR at Miami odds at 5-1. Before locking in any 2020 Dixie Vodka 400 picks, be sure to see the 2020 NASCAR at Miami predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven model at SportsLine.

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.

The model began the 2020 NASCAR season by picking Denny Hamlin to win his second consecutive Daytona 500 at 10-1. It got off to a hot start on its NASCAR picks following the coronavirus hiatus as well, calling seven of the top 10 drivers at The Real Heroes 400 and the Toyota 500 at Darlington. Using the model, McClure also recommended an outright play on winner Brad Keselowski at 13-1 as one of his best bets at Bristol. The model also called Kevin Harvick's win at Atlanta and nailed a whopping nine top-10 finishers in that race. Anybody who has followed it has seen huge returns.

Now, the model simulated NASCAR at Homestead-Miami 2020 on Sunday 10,000 times. Head here to see the complete projected leaderboard.

Top 2020 Dixie Vodka 400 predictions

For the 2020 Dixie Vodka 400 on Sunday, the model is high on Kurt Busch even though he's a 25-1 long shot in the latest Miami NASCAR odds 2020. He's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. Busch has been on a tear after the NASCAR season returned from the hiatus caused by the coronavirus pandemic. In fact, he has finished in the top 10 in his last five starts on the NASCAR schedule.

Despite not finishing on top of the leaderboard this season, Busch will enter Sunday's race confident he can claim his first checkered flag. That's because Busch has had plenty of success at Homestead-Miami Speedway in his career. The 41-year-old has one career victory and seven top-10 finishes at this track, one of the main reasons the model sees strong value in Busch in the 2020 Dixie Vodka 400 starting grid.

And a massive shocker: Chase Elliott, one of the top Vegas favorites at 13-2, stumbles big-time and barely cracks the top five. There are far better values in a loaded NASCAR at Miami starting grid. Elliott has just four career starts at Miami, and he's finished outside the top 10 in two of them.

His best performance at Miami was fifth place in 2017, but he's regressed since that point, finishing seventh in 2018 and 15th last year. And while he finished first and second in the Charlotte races in May, his average finish position in the last three events is just 11.7. Elliott is one of the 2020 Dixie Vodka 400 favorites to avoid on Sunday.

How to make 2020 Dixie Vodka 400 picks

The model is also targeting two other drivers with NASCAR at Miami odds of 12-1 or longer to make a serious run at the checkered flag, including one massive long shot higher than 45-1. Anyone who backs these drivers could hit it big. You can only see them here.
