The NASCAR Cup Series returns to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday for the 2022 Verizon 200. Last year, AJ Allmendinger came away with a victory to mark NASCAR’s first year at this track. Allmendinger has been a solid road-course driver during his career, but the 2022 Verizon 200 odds are a 16-1 long shot at Caesars Sportsbook. Chase Elliott, who has finished first or second in five consecutive races this season, is a 7-2 favorite for NASCAR at Indianapolis in 2022. 2022 NASCAR drops the green flag at the Brickyard Sunday on NBC (stream) at 2:30 p.m. Now on FuboTV).
Elliott is more than 100 points ahead of Ross Chastain in the NASCAR Cup Series standings, but should you back him in the 2022 NASCAR Indianapolis odds with the 2022 Verizon 200 betting? Before checking out the 2022 Verizon 200 starting lineup and making any 2022 NASCAR Brickyard predictions, be sure to check out the latest NASCAR Verified Project Model from SportLine in Indianapolis.
Built by Mike McClure, Daily Fantasy Pro and SportsLine Prediction Data Engineer, this NASCAR prediction model simulates each race 10,000 times, taking into account factors such as track history and recent results.
In the 2021 season, McClure nailed Martin Truex Jr. in Martinsville for a solid 3-1 payout. Then Chase Elliott was named to win at Street America for a 5-2 fee. McClure’s model calls for Larson’s 11-4 payout at Texas and 9-4 payout at Kansas in back-to-back weeks with Larson winning the season finale at Phoenix to take the 2021 NASCAR Cup championship. .
Overall, he nailed five of Larson’s wins in a historic season and went 15-9 in his head-to-head matchup projection to start the 2022 season. Earlier this season, Ross Chastain had a big win in Austin, giving him the best shot at beating his 40-1 odds. The model was high on Joey Logano before a 15-1 underdog win in Darlington and high again in a 14-1 comeback win in St. Louis. Anyone who followed his lead on those plays saw huge returns on their NASCAR picks.
Now, the model has simulated the 2022 NASCAR race at the Brickyard 10,000 times. Head over to SportsLine to see the complete 2022 Verizon 200 leaderboard.
Top 2022 NASCAR Predictions at the Brickyard
One surprise: The model is high on Ryan Blaney, even though he’s an 18-1 long shot at Brickyard odds to make it to the 2022 NASCAR finals. He’s a target for anyone looking for a big payday. Blaney didn’t quite make it into the winner’s circle this year, but is still third in the standings. However, his playoff spot could be in question if another winless driver wins this week.
Blaney has done well on road courses this season, finishing in the top-six twice and finishing outside the top 10 at Road America. He also scored a top five finish in the first round of this competition held last year. Blaney would love to secure his playoff spot once and for all on Sunday, so the SportLine model is happy to back him at this price. See which other NASCAR dogs to choose from here.
And a huge shocker: Tyler Reddick, one of the Vegas favorites at 10-1, stumbled in the big time and couldn’t crack the five. There are much better values in the 2022 Verizon 200 base grid. Reddick took his first victory in the final street race and finished fourth in the NASCAR Cup Series at Elkhart Lake and Pocono, which saw him move up to second after Hamlin and Busch retired from the race last week.
However, he finished 35th in the previous road race at Sonoma and struggled on the road course at Indianapolis Motor Speedway last season. Reddick started 11th in the tournament and led six laps, but finished 21st. The model was fourth favorite on Sunday and there is little value in playing it.
