Sunday’s 2019 Pennzoil 400 promises plenty of excitement for NASCAR fans everywhere. Last year, Kevin Harvick claimed the checkered flag and jumpstarted his dominant season that saw him record eight victories. Now, he will look to defend his title at the 2019 Pennzoil 400, which gets underway at 3:30 p.m. ET out of 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 all going off at 6-1 or lower. Weather will not be a variable, as the newest Las Vegas forecast is calling for temperatures in the mid-60s and sunny skies. This season’s version of the Pennzoil 400 has an extremely talented field of motorists, so before you create any 2019 Pennzoil 400 picks or enter a daily Fantasy NASCAR championship on websites like FanDuel and DraftKings, make certain to consult the 2019 Pennzoil 400 projected leaderboard from the proven computer version at SportsLine.
Developed by DFS expert and SportsLine predictive information engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction computer model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking factors like track history and current results into consideration.
It made some huge calls in NASCAR this past year, including correctly casting wins for Kyle Busch in Chicago and Martin Truex Jr. at Sonoma. And it’s off to a solid start in NASCAR this year, calling Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin a top-four contender and placing QuikTrip 500 winner Brad Keselowski in his proposed leading five. Anyone who has followed its selections is way up.
McClure, with a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Big events at iconic places like Las Vegas Motor Speedway have been in his blood. His version simulated the Pennzoil 400 10,000 times and the results were surprising.
For your 2019 Pennzoil 400, we could inform you the model is high on Aric Almirola, who makes a serious run in the checkered flag despite heading off as a very long shot 20-1 Pennzoil 400 chances. He is a goal for anybody searching for a massive payday.
Almirola is coming off an impressive performance last week in the Folds of Honor Quiktrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. He led 36 laps before finishing in the top 10 and he’ll will seem to take over that momentum into Sunday’s 2019 NASCAR in Las Vegas race.
