NASCAR at Martinsville odds, picks 2019: Model says Jimmie Johnson surprises at STP 500

The 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series is off to a riveting beginning with a wild finish in the Daytona 500 and new aerodynamics rules created to set an emphasis on creating and passing with a profound effect. As we head to the 2019 STP 500 at two p.m. ET on Sunday, it’s Kyle Busch with the hot hand, winning the previous two months and turning in top-10 finishes in every race as the Daytona 500. Because of that, he’s listed as the 8-5 favorite from the most current 2019 STP 500 chances, with Brad Keselowski and Martin Truex Jr. just behind him at 5-1. This week, NASCAR shifts gears into the tightly-cornered half-mile oval at Martinsville Speedway, which features a track using two distinct surfaces. Short-track racing is a different beast, and this is the race like it this year. So before you create your own 2019 STP 500 picks, see the NASCAR at Martinsville predictions from the advanced computer version at SportsLine.
Produced by DFS expert and SportsLine predictive information scientist Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction computer model simulates every race 10,000 occasions, taking factors like track record and recent results into account.
The model is off to a strong start in NASCAR this year, calling Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin a top-four contender from the start. It nailed eight of the top 10 drivers at the Pennzoil 400, which included placing winner Joey Logano in its projected top . It was also all over Kyle Busch as a leading contender at the TicketGuardian 500, and four of the drivers at McClure’s projected top five went on to top-five endings at a week’s Automobile Club 400. Is far up.
McClure, who has a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Events in iconic venues like Martinsville Speedway have been in his blood. His model simulated the 2019 STP 500 10,000 times and the results were so surprising.
For the 2019 STP 500, we could inform you that the version is high on Jimmie Johnson, making a strong run at the checkered flag despite heading off as a very long shot at 40-1 NASCAR in Martinsville chances.
