NASCAR at Austin odds, predictions: Model releases surprising 2024 EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix picks

Tyler Reddick heads to the 2024 EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix as the defending champion, and he has been arguably the best driver on road courses in recent seasons. Reddick is the 4-1 favorite in the 2024 EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix odds for Sunday’s race at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin. Typical NASCAR favorites Denny Hamlin (20-1) and Ryan Blaney (40-1) are down the 2024 NASCAR at COTA odds board due to the skill set required for road races, while Chase Elliott (8-1) and Ty Gibbs (10-1) are top 2024 NASCAR at Austin contenders. Which drivers should you target with your 2024 EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix bets?

Elliott won the inaugural race at this track in 2021 and finished fourth a year later. He missed last year’s NASCAR at COTA race due to an injury, but he still posted four top-10 finishes in five road-course races a season ago. Before scouring the 2024 EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix starting lineup. Before making any 2024 NASCAR at Austin predictions, be sure to see the latest 2024 EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix picks from SportsLine’s proven projection 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.

McClure’s model was red-hot in 2023, nailing Martin Truex Jr.’s Clash win (20-1) as well as his win in New Hampshire (11-2), Joey Logano’s Duel win (8-1), Kyle Busch’s Fontana victory (10-1), Denny Hamlin’s triumph in Kansas (6-1) and Kyle Larson’s wins at Martinsville (6-1) and the NASCAR All-Star Race (13-2). The model correctly predicted winners in two of the playoff races as well, with Ryan Blaney scoring a 12-1 payout at Talladega and Larson winning at 9-2 in Las Vegas. 

Then it called its first winner of the 2024 season with Larson in Las Vegas for a 21-5 payout and predicted a Hamlin win last week in Bristol at 5-1. It also impressively nailed five of Larson’s wins during his historic season in 2021. All told, the model has nailed a whopping 17 winners since 2021, including nine last year alone. Anyone who followed its lead on those NASCAR picks saw huge returns.

Now, the model simulated the 2024 EchoPark Automotive 500 10,000 times. Head to SportsLine to see the complete projected NASCAR at Austin leaderboard.

Top 2024 EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix predictions

For the 2024 EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix, the model is high on Chris Buescher, even though he’s an 18-1 longshot in the latest 2024 NASCAR at Austin odds. He’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. Buescher has been making noise at road courses over the last two years, finishing no worse than 11th across those 11 races.

He finished second at Sonoma in 2022 and eighth at this race last year, so he has been knocking on the door of a road-course victory. Buescher is also in strong form right now, finishing second at Phoenix two weeks ago before finishing seventh at Bristol last week. He won three races last season, and SportsLine’s model says he has a strong chance to secure his first win of the 2024 Cup Series season on Sunday. 

Another massive shocker: Shane Van Gisbergen, a road-course ringer and one of the top Vegas favorites, stumbles big-time and fails to crack the top 10. The 34-year-old New Zealander was a three-time Supercar champion in Australia and he’s made the full-time move to NASCAR after winning the 2023 Chicago Street Race as a ringer last year in his first NASCAR Cup Series start.

Van Gisbergen is currently driving full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, where he is 14th in the standings, and will race several road races in the NASCAR Cup Series this season. However, he’ll be making his Circuit of the Americas debut on Sunday and the model is expecting some growing pains for the Kiwi. There are far better values in the 2024 EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix starting lineup. See which other drivers to avoid and the rest of the projected NASCAR leaderboard at SportsLine.
