2020 FanShield 500 odds, predictions: NASCAR at Phoenix picks from same model that nailed the Daytona 500

The first month of the NASCAR schedule finishes with Sunday’s 2020 FanShield 500 at Phoenix Raceway. The one-mile oval offers exciting, side-by-side racing for 500 laps and all 40 drivers in the 2020 FanShield 500 starting grid are gunning for a momentum-boosting victory. The green flag drops at 3:30 p.m. ET. Kyle Busch returns to defend his victory and is atop the 2020 FanShield 500 odds for NASCAR at Phoenix at 7-2.

But Busch isn’t alone as a favorite. Kevin Harvick is at 5-1 NASCAR at Phoenix odds 2020, Daytona 500 champ Denny Hamlin is 6-1, and Martin Truex Jr. is 9-2. Before you make your NASCAR at Phoenix predictions, be sure to see the 2020 FanShield 500 picks and projected leaderboard from SportsLine’s proven computer model.

Developed by daily Fantasy pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking into account factors such as track history and recent results.

The model began its season paying out big by picking Denny Hamlin to win his second consecutive Daytona 500 at 10-1. It also crushed its NASCAR picks last year, hitting nine of the top 10 drivers at the Go Bowling at The Glen and calling Martin Truex Jr. to win the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma.. Anybody who has followed it has seen huge returns.

Now, his model simulated Sunday’s 2020 NASCAR at Phoenix race 10,000 times. Head here now to see the complete projected leaderboard.

Top 2020 FanShield 500 predictions

For NASCAR at Phoenix on Sunday, the model is high on Ryan Blaney, an 11-1 long shot in the latest NASCAR odds. He’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday Blaney missed winning the Daytona 500 by just 0.014 seconds, but the runner-up finish set him up for a hot start to the season. Blaney also finished 11th at Las Vegas and was 19th at California last week. 

Blaney was fast in both Phoenix appearances last year, claiming the pole and placing third in the TicketGuardian 500 spring race and also finishing third at the Bluegreen Vacations 500 fall race. Blaney has two other top-10s at Phoenix, both coming in 2016. A three-time winner on the NASCAR Cup Series, Blaney has fast equipment every week as part of Team Penske and is an excellent value play in the 2020 FanShield 500 lineup.

And a massive shocker: Martin Truex Jr., one of the top Vegas favorites at 9-2, barely cracks the top five. Truex is off to a tough start this season, failing to crack the top 10 in any of the three races so far despite the fact that he’s led laps in his last two starts.

And even though he has finished in the top six in four of his last five races in Phoenix, Truex has never won in 28 career starts at the track. In fact, Truex has finished 20th or worse on eight occasions in Phoenix. There are far better values in a loaded 2020 FanShield 500 lineup.

How to make NASCAR at Phoenix picks

The model also is targeting four other drivers with NASCAR at Phoenix odds longer than 10-1 to make a serious run at winning it all, including a surprising dark horse. Anyone who backs these drivers could hit it big.
