NASCAR Fontana 2022 picks, Auto Club Speedway predictions, odds, best bets, race lineup from legendary expert

Since last year’s race was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Alex Bowman finally gets the opportunity to defend his title when he participates in the 2022 Wise Power 400 at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California on Sunday. Bowman recorded his only victory of 2020 and second in the NASCAR Cup Series in this race. The 28-year-old had his best season on the circuit last year, tripling his career wins total by capturing four checkered flags while posting four other top-five finishes.

Bowman is 14-1, while reigning series champion Kyle Larson is the 5-2 betting favorite in the latest 2022 Wise Power 400 odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Three-time winner Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. are 7-1, Chase Elliott is 15-2 and Denny Hamlin is 8-1 among the NASCAR Fontana 2022 contenders. Before locking in any 2022 Wise Power 400 picks of your own, you need to check out the NASCAR at Fontana predictions from SportsLine’s Micah Roberts, the legendary Vegas bookmaker who pioneered wagering on racing.

Roberts, a former Vegas bookmaker, was the first to offer expanded NASCAR betting, and now hands out NASCAR winners to his followers on SportsLine. Roberts is the nation’s premier NASCAR betting expert, and his top pick, Elliott, won the Jockey Made in America 250 last season.

He also correctly predicted the 2021 Coca-Cola 600 winner, hitting Larson’s victory at 11-2 odds. The previous week, he was on point at the EchoPark Texas Grand Prix, targeting Elliott as the winner at 8-5 odds. Anyone who has followed his picks is up huge year after year.

Now, Roberts has analyzed the field and odds for Sunday’s NASCAR at Fontana 2022 race and just revealed his picks and predictions. He’s only sharing his Wise Power 400 winner and projected leaderboard at SportsLine.

2022 Wise Power 400 expert picks

One shocker: Roberts is fading Truex, even though he’s among the top 2022 Wise Power 400 contenders. In fact, Roberts says Truex, who has won just once in 20 Cup Series starts at Fontana, barely cracks the top 15.

“All four of his wins last year came with the 750-horsepower package on smaller tracks,” Roberts told SportsLine. “The 7-1 odds offered are comical.”

Another curveball: Roberts is high on Bowman, a 14-1 long shot in the latest 2022 NASCAR at Fontana Raceway odds. He did not start his 2022 Cup Series season strong, finishing 24th in the Daytona 500 last Sunday. But Bowman won his penultimate start of 2021 at Martinsville and also took the checkered flag in the last series race that took place on this track two years ago.

“This might be the best value on the board between his Hendrick Camaro and Bowman being the last Cup Series driver to win at Fontana,” Roberts told SportsLine. “Bowman led a race-high 110 laps en route to the win before the world shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

How to make 2022 Wise Power 400 predictions

Roberts is high on a long shot whose car “makes him dangerous on all tracks.” This driver is being seriously underestimated by oddsmakers, and anyone who backs him could hit it big. You can only see who it is at SportsLine.
