Kyle Busch captured the checkered flag at the Clash for the second time in his career in 2021, when the exhibition took place at Daytona International Speedway. The two-time NASCAR Cup Series champion fell just short of repeating in the inaugural edition of the Clash at the Coliseum last year, finishing runner-up to Joey Logano despite leading a race-high 64 of 150 laps. Busch will attempt to return to his winning ways when he makes his first start for Richard Childress Racing in the 2023 Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum on Sunday. Chase Elliott and Kyle Larson, who respectively won the Cup Series championship in 2020 and 2021, are +750 co-favorites in the latest 2023 Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum odds from Caesars Sportsbook.

The race is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. ET. You'll want to check out the NASCAR at the Coliseum predictions legendary auto racing handicapper Micah Roberts before locking in any 2023 Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum 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, Elliott, won the YellaWood 500 last October at 12-1 odds.

He also correctly predicted Elliott to win the Jockey Made in America 250 in 2021, nailed the 2021 Coca-Cola 600 winner by hitting Larson's victory at 11-2 odds and was on point by targeting Elliott as the winner of the EchoPark Texas Grand Prix at 8-5 odds the previous week. Anyone who has followed his picks has cashed tickets.

Now, Roberts has analyzed the field and odds for Sunday's NASCAR at the Coliseum 2023 race. He's sharing his winner and leaderboard right here.

2023 Clash at the Coliseum expert picks

One shocker: Roberts is low on Larson, even though he's among the top 2023 Clash at the Coliseum contenders. In fact, Roberts says Larson, who won only three races last year after recording 10 victories in 2021, barely cracks the top 10.

"The edge his Hendrick Motorsports garage enjoyed the previous season was gone (in 2022) and the pack came up to meet him," Roberts told SportsLine. "I like him to run well, but I like at least seven others to run better." See who else to fade here.

Another curveball: Roberts is high on Martin Truex Jr., who is +1200 in the latest 2023 NASCAR at the Coliseum odds. He's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. The 42-year-old from New Jersey did not win a race in 2022, marking the first time he failed to capture a checkered flag in the Cup Series in eight years. However, Truex has recorded six of his 12 victories since joining Joe Gibbs Racing in 2019 on short tracks after never winning on them over his first 15 years on the circuit.

"He's shown that he has the skills to run well on a short track," Roberts told SportsLine. "Since 2019, nine of his 12 wins have come on tracks 1.33 miles in length or shorter." See who else Roberts likes at SportsLine.

How to make 2023 Clash at the Coliseum predictions

Roberts is high on a huge longshot, believing the race setup "is right in his wheelhouse." This driver is being underestimated by oddsmakers, and anyone who backs him could hit it big. You can only see who it is here.
