NASCAR at Martinsville odds, picks 2019: Model says Jimmie Johnson surprises at STP 500
The 2019 Dragon Energy NASCAR Cup Series is off to a riveting start with a wild finish in the Daytona 500 and fresh aerodynamics rules designed to place an emphasis on drafting and passing having a profound impact. As we head to the 2019 STP 500 at 2 p.m. ET on Sunday, it’s Kyle Busch with the hot hand, winning the previous two weeks and turning into top-10 finishes in every race as the Daytona 500. Because of that, he’s listed as the 8-5 favorite in the latest 2019 STP 500 odds, with Brad Keselowski and Martin Truex Jr. just behind him in 5-1. This week, NASCAR shifts gears into the tightly-cornered half-mile oval at Martinsville Speedway, which features a track with two distinct surfaces. Short-track racing is a different monster, and this is the first race like it this season. So before you create your 2019 STP 500 selections, see the NASCAR in Martinsville predictions from the innovative computer version at SportsLine.
Developed by DFS expert and SportsLine predictive data scientist Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction computer model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking factors like track history and current results into consideration.
The model is off to a solid start in NASCAR this season, calling Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin that a top-four contender from the start. It nailed eight of the top 10 drivers in the Pennzoil 400, which included placing winner Joey Logano at its projected top five. It was all over Kyle Busch as a leading contender at the TicketGuardian 500, and four of those drivers at McClure’s projected top five went to top-five finishes at a week’s Auto Club 400. Is far up.
McClure, with a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Big events in places like Martinsville Speedway are in his blood. His version mimicked the 2019 STP 500 10,000 times and the results were so surprising.
For your 2019 STP 500, we can inform you that the version is high on Jimmie Johnson, who makes a strong run at the checkered flag despite heading off as a long shot 40-1 NASCAR in Martinsville odds.
