Kansas 2022 NASCAR Playoff Picks, Odds, Predictions: Model Fading Christopher Bell at Hollywood Casino 400

The 2022 NASCAR Playoffs continue on Sunday as the 16 NASCAR Cup Series drivers in this year’s playoff field head to Kansas Speedway with the Round of 16 looming. The 2022 Hollywood Casino 400 will be the second race of the season at the 1.5-mile oval and Daniel Suarez is the current bubble boy as he sits in 12th place in the NASCAR standings. Suarez had a tough run and finished 33rd in the season opener at Kansas and will be looking for a much stronger finish when the green flag drops at 3 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Suarez and his Trackhouse Racing Chevrolet are listed as 25-1 longshots in Caesars Sportsbook’s Hollywood Casino 400 2022 odds. Meanwhile, Denny Hamlin is listed as NASCAR’s 9-2 favorite at Kansas odds, followed by Kyle Busch (6-1) and Kyle Larson (13-2). Before you run through the Hollywood Casino 400 2022 starting lineup and make NASCAR Kansas 2022 predictions, be sure to see the latest NASCAR Kansas picks from SportsLine’s proven projection model.

Developed by Fantasy pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction model simulates each race 10,000 times, taking into account factors such as track history and recent results.

In the 2021 season, McClure’s model nailed Martin Truex Jr. to win at Martinsville for a solid 3-1 win. Then he called Elliott to win at Road America for a 5-2 payout. McClure’s model also called Larson’s win at Texas for an 11-4 payout and win at Kansas for a 9-4 payout in back-to-back weeks before nailing Larson to win the season finale in Phoenix for winning the 2021 NASCAR Cup championship. In total, he had five of Larson’s wins in a historic season.

So far in 2022, it was important for Ross Chastain to win in Austin, which gave him a much better chance of winning than his 40-1 odds implied. The model was also high on Joey Logano before winning as a 15-1 underdog at Darlington and again on Logano when he came back 14-1 in their win at St. Louis. In early August, he was much higher on Kevin Harvick than his 17-1 odds implied, and Harvick took the win at Michigan. Anyone who followed his lead on these games saw huge returns.

Now the model has simulated the 2022 NASCAR race at Kansas 10,000 times. Head over to SportsLine to see the full expected Hollywood Casino 400 2022 standings.

Best Kansas 2022 NASCAR Predictions

For the 2022 Hollywood Casino 400, the model is high on Joey Logano, even though he is a 15-1 longshot in the latest 2022 NASCAR at Kansas odds. He is a target for anyone looking for a huge salary. Logano currently leads the 2022 NASCAR standings with a 6-point cushion over William Byron after taking pole, leading 64 laps and finishing fourth in the 2022 Cook Out Southern 500 last week.

The 2018 NASCAR Cup Series champion has finished sixth or better in five of his last six starts and the 32-year-old is a 29-time winner at NASCAR’s top tier. That includes a pair of wins at Kansas Speedway in the 2015 and 2020 Hollywood Casino 400. Find out which other NASCAR underdogs to pick here.

And a huge shocker: Christopher Bell, one of the Vegas favorites at 10-1, stumbles and fails to make the top-10. The 27-year-old won at New Hampshire late in the season to work his way into the 2022 NASCAR Playoffs and is currently fourth in the NASCAR standings.

However, he has yet to do particularly well in his NASCAR Cup Series career on 1.5-mile ovals. He’s also been outside the top 10 in three of his last six starts and the model sees him struggling to live up to his prize money on Sunday. There are much better values ​​in the Hollywood Casino 400 2022 starting range. Check out other favorites to avoid here.
