Kyle Busch settled for runner-up in the inaugural NASCAR Cup Series race at World Wide Technology Raceway last year, finishing .655 seconds behind Joey Logano despite leading a race-high 66 laps. The two-time series champion hopes to get the job done in Madison, Ill. on Sunday as he participates in the 2023 Enjoy Illinois 300. Busch also recorded top-10 finishes in each of his three Xfinity Series starts at the track, including a victory in 2009. Busch, who is coming off back-to-back top-10s, is one of five drivers listed at 10-1, while Kyle Larson is the 9-2 favorite in the latest 2023 Enjoy Illinois 300 odds from Caesars Sportsbook. William Byron is 6-1 and Martin Truex Jr. rounds out the top 2023 Enjoy Illinois 300 contenders at 8-1.

The Enjoy Illinois 300 2023 is scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m. ET. You'll want to check out the NASCAR at Illinois predictions from Micah Roberts, the legendary Vegas bookmaker who pioneered wagering on racing, before locking in any 2023 Enjoy Illinois 300 picks of your own.

Roberts 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, Larson, won the NASCAR All-Star Race two weeks ago at +650. He also nailed the EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix winner in March by hitting Tyler Reddick's victory at +1000.

In addition, the expert correctly predicted Chase Elliott to win the YellaWood 500 at +1200 last October and the Jockey Made in America 250 in 2021, nailed the 2021 Coca-Cola 600 winner by hitting Larson's victory at +550 and was on point by targeting Elliott as the winner of the EchoPark Texas Grand Prix at +160 the previous week. Anyone who has followed his picks has cashed ticket after ticket.

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

2023 Enjoy Illinois 300 expert picks

One shocker: Roberts is fading William Byron, even though he is one of the favorites at 6-1. In fact, Roberts says Byron, who leads all Cup Series drivers with three wins and seven top-five finishes this season, doesn't even crack the top 10 in this race.

"I didn't just throw him out of my top 10 because of these odds, although they didn't help," Roberts told SportsLine. "It's more based on Byron not doing well in the three previous short-track races this season." You can see who else to fade here.

Another curveball: Roberts is high on Bubba Wallace, who is listed at 30-1 in the latest 2023 Enjoy Illinois 300 odds. The 29-year-old from Alabama has been superb of late, finishing fifth or better in each of his last three starts. Wallace, who also was runner-up in the non-points NASCAR All-Star Race two weeks ago, was 26th in this race last year but won his only Truck Series start at WWTR in 2014.

"This is my biggest payout of the week," Roberts told SportsLine. "His team is completely dialed in... He believes in his cockiness and attitude to give himself confidence." You can see who else to back here.

How to make 2023 Enjoy Illinois 300 predictions

Roberts is high on a longshot whose team has made forward progress this season and has become a major player in recent races. This driver is being underestimated by oddsmakers, and anyone who backs him could hit it big. You can only see who it is here.
