NASCAR Darlington 2022 Odds, Start Time, TV Channels: Surprise Model Goodyear 400 Picks, Predictions

Darlington Raceway has been a staple of the NASCAR Cup Series schedule since the 1950s. However, NASCAR drivers will have to make adjustments when they take the “next-gen” car to the legendary venue for the first time on Sunday at the 2022 Goodyear 400. The redesigned car has produced nine different winners in 11 races competing at NASCAR Darlington, but Hendrick Motorsports has put all four drivers on winning ways for a total of five victories. The 2022 NASCAR Darlington green flag falls at 3:30pm ET on FS1 (stream now on FuboTV).

Kyle Larson is last among the Hendrick drivers in NASCAR standings, but the series’ defending champion is still the 4-1 favorite in Caesars Sportsbook’s 2022 Goodyear 400 odds. Chase Elliott earned his first win of the season last week and is 7-1, while William Byron (12-1) and Alex Bowman (15-1) are both 2022 NASCAR at Darlington contenders. Before you scour the 2022 Goodyear 400 starting lineup and make 2022 NASCAR Darlington predictions, be sure to check out the latest 2022 NASCAR in Darlington picks from SportsLine’s trusted projection model.

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

In the 2021 season, McClure pinned Martin Truex Jr. to win in Martinsville with a strong 3-1 payout. Then it called Chase Elliott to win at Road America with a 5-2 payout. McClure’s model also credited Larson’s win in Texas with an 11-4 payout and his win in Kansas with a 9-4 payout in consecutive weeks before pinning Larson to win the season finale in Phoenix and the 2021 NASCAR Cup championship to win.

Overall, it had five of Larson’s wins in a historic season and went 14-9 in its head-to-head matchup predictions to start the 2022 season. Earlier this season, winning in Austin was high for Ross Chastain, giving him a far better chance of winning than his 40-1 odds implied. Anyone who followed his example in these games saw tremendous returns on their NASCAR picks.

Now the model has simulated NASCAR 2022 in Darlington 10,000 times. Go to SportsLine to see the full predicted Goodyear 400 ranking for 2022.

Top 2022 Goodyear 400 Predictions

One surprise: The model digs high on Kevin Harvick despite him being a 15-1 long shot by Darlington odds in the last NASCAR 2022. It is a destination for anyone looking for a big payday. Harvick is hoping his experience at Darlington can help boost his team’s season and end a winless 54-race drought.

Harvick is a 58-time NASCAR Cup Series winner (10th all-time) with a trio of wins at Darlington Raceway. He won two of the three races at Darlington when NASCAR returned to action after the coronavirus shutdown in 2020, and hasn’t finished outside the top 10 on The Lady in Black since 2012. He’s led at least 10 laps in nine of his last 10 starts there and he’s a strong bet to work his way back up the field on Sunday, according to the model.

And one massive shocker: One of the Vegas favorites at 7-1, Chase Elliott, stumbles big, narrowly cracking the top 10. There are far better stats on the 2022 Goodyear 400’s starting lineup. Elliott led the NASCAR standings for most of the season, eventually earning a win at Dover last week to extend his lead over Ryan Blaney to 50 points.

However, Darlington Raceway has presented Elliott with a few challenges over the course of his NASCAR Cup Series career, especially recently. Elliott has finished 20th or worse in three of his last four starts at Darlington, and he’s finished outside the top 10 in six of his ten career starts there, while leading laps in only three of those races.

How to Make 2022 NASCAR Darlington Picks

The model also targets two other drivers with NASCAR 2022 at Darlington odds of 15-1 or more to make a serious run to the checkered flag. Anyone who relies on these drivers could make it big. You can see all of the model’s NASCAR picks over at SportsLine.
