NASCAR at Las Vegas odds, picks 2019: Model says Aric Almirola surprises at Pennzoil 400

Sunday’s 2019 Pennzoil 400 guarantees plenty of enthusiasm for NASCAR fans everywhere. This past year, Kevin Harvick maintained the checkered flag and jumpstarted his dominant season which saw him record eight victories. Now, he’ll seem to defend his title in the 2019 Pennzoil 400, which gets underway at 3:30 p.m. ET from Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Harvick enters Sunday’s race as the Vegas favorite at 9-2 in the live 2019 Pennzoil 400 odds. Meanwhile, Kyle Busch (5-1), Martin Truex Jr. (6-1), Kyle Larson (6-1) and Brad Keselowski (6-1) are going off at 6-1 or lower. Weather won’t be a variable, as the latest Las Vegas forecast is calling for temperatures from the mid-60s and bright skies. This year’s version of the Pennzoil 400 comes with a very talented field of drivers, so before you create any 2019 Pennzoil 400 picks or enter a daily Fantasy NASCAR tournament on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings, be sure to consult the 2019 Pennzoil 400 projected leaderboard in the proven computer version at SportsLine.

Produced by DFS expert and SportsLine predictive information engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction computer model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking factors such as track history and current results into account.

It made some huge calls in NASCAR last year, including properly projecting wins for Kyle Busch in Chicago and Martin Truex Jr. at Sonoma. And it is off to a solid start in NASCAR this season, calling Daytona 500 champion Denny Hamlin a top-four competition and placing QuikTrip 500 winner Brad Keselowski in his proposed leading five. Anybody who has followed its picks is far up.

McClure, who has a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Big events in iconic places like Las Vegas Motor Speedway are in his bloodstream. His version simulated the Pennzoil 400 10,000 times and the results were so surprising.

For the 2019 Pennzoil 400, we can tell you the model is high on Aric Almirola, who makes a serious run in the checkered flag despite going off as a very long shot at 20-1 Pennzoil 400 odds. He’s a target for anybody searching for a massive payday.

Almirola is coming off an impressive performance last week at the Folds of Honor Quiktrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. He led 36 laps before finishing in the top 10 and he’ll will look to take over that momentum into Sunday’s 2019 NASCAR in vegas race.
