2022 Bristol NASCAR picks, Food City Dirt Race predictions, odds, lineup from legendary expert

William Byron became the first driver to record multiple victories in the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series schedule when he took the checkered flag at Martinsville last weekend. Entering the year, the 24-year-old had posted just two wins in 144 series starts. Byron will go for back-to-back triumphs when he participates in the 2022 Food City Dirt Race on Sunday at Bristol Motor Speedway. In last year’s inaugural event, the first in the Cup Series on dirt since 1970, Byron registered a sixth-place finish in the Bristol Dirt Race. The green flag drops at 7 p.m. ET.

Byron is 10-1, while reigning NASCAR Cup Series champion Kyle Larson is the 7-2 favorite in the latest 2022 Food City Dirt Race odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Christopher Bell is 8-1, while 2021 race winner Joey Logano and Martin Truex Jr. round out the top five 2022 Bristol Dirt Race contenders at 10-1. You’ll want to check out the NASCAR at Bristol predictions from Micah Roberts, the legendary Vegas bookmaker who pioneered wagering on racing, before locking in any 2022 Food City Dirt Race picks.

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, Chase 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 Bristol 2022 field. He’s sharing his winner and leaderboard right here.

2022 Food City Dirt Race expert predictions
One shocker: Roberts is low on Byron, even though he’s one the top 2022 Food City Dirt Race contenders. In fact, Roberts says Byron, who is the only driver with multiple wins thus far this season and has posted four top-five finishes in his last six starts, barely even cracks the top 15.

“Last week’s winner has probably spent more time in the simulators preparing for this race than anyone else,” Roberts told SportsLine. “It helped him get a sixth-place finish last season but won’t get him a win this time around.”

Another curveball: Roberts is high on Tyler Reddick, even though he’s a long shot at 16-1 in the latest NASCAR at Bristol odds. The 26-year-old Californian remains in search of his first career Cup Series victory but has posted a pair of top-five finishes in eight starts this season. Reddick performed well in this race last year, finishing seventh, and has recorded a fourth-place in three races at Bristol on concrete.

“Reddick looked awfully smooth on the dirt last season,” Roberts told SportsLine. “This could be the place where he grabs his first Cup Series win.”

How to make 2022 NASCAR Bristol Dirt Race picks
Roberts is high on a long shot who “showed off his dirt skills” in last year’s race. This driver is being underestimated by oddsmakers, and anyone who backs him could hit it big. You can only see who it is here.
