2023 Clash at the Coliseum odds, predictions, start time: Model reveals surprising tips for NASCAR in LA
With the 2023 Daytona 500 approaching, NASCAR will begin its preseason with the 2023 Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum. A quarter mile track was built into the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum known to have hosted several Olympic Games and Super Bowls as well as the 1959 World Series. Kyle Busch won pole at last year’s Clash at the Coliseum and led 65 laps of the 150-lap feature, but Joey Logano edged him out at the finish. Logano is an 8-1 co-favourite in the latest 2023 Clash at the Coliseum odds. Kyle Larson, Chase Elliott and Kyle Busch have won the last three NASCAR titles and they are also 8-1 on the NASCAR odds board while Christopher Bell is 10-1. The green flag is expected to drop at 8:00 p.m. ET in the 23-car, 150-lap main race. Before you comb through the 2023 Clash at the Coliseum grid and start making NASCAR at the Coliseum 2023 predictions, be sure to check out the latest 2023 Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum 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’s model beat Martin Truex Jr. to win in Martinsville with a strong 3-1 payout. Then it called Elliott to win at Road America with a 5-2 payout. McClure’s model also cited Larson’s win in Texas for an 11-4 payoff and his win in Kansas for a 9-4 payoff in consecutive weeks before pinning Larson to win the season finale in Phoenix and the NASCAR Cup championship win. Overall, he had five of Larson’s wins in a historic season.
In 2022, winning at Austin was high for Ross Chastain, giving him a far better chance of winning than his 40-1 odds implied. The model was also high on Joey Logano before winning 15-1 as an underdog in Darlington, and high on Logano again when he came back 14-1 after winning in St. Louis. In early August, Kevin Harvick was much higher than his 17-1 odds implied, and Harvick clinched the win in Michigan and then was high on Tyler Reddick before winning in Texas with a 12-1 payoff. Anyone who followed his example in these games saw tremendous returns on their NASCAR picks.
The model now simulated the Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum 2023 10,000 times. Go to SportsLine to see the complete projected leaderboard from NASCAR at the Coliseum.
Top 2023 NASCAR Clash at the Coliseum Predictions
At the 2023 Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum, the model is topping Tyler Reddick, even though he is well ahead at odds of 15-1 in the final NASCAR race of 2023. It is a destination for anyone looking for a big payday. The 27-year-old is entering his third season as a full-time NASCAR Cup Series driver and has had an impressive 2022 season.
Reddick won twice during the regular season, but a crash in Kansas and 25th place in Bristol resulted in a disappointing 14th place overall. However, Reddick rallied to claim a third win the week after his retirement at Texas Motor Speedway. He finished with a career-high 10 finishes in the top 5 and will be looking to re-establish himself as a contender at the Coliseum. See who else supports here.
And a massive shocker: Kyle Busch, one of the Vegas favorites at 8-1, stumbles big and narrowly cracks the top 5. There are far better values at the Busch Light Clash 2023 in the Coliseum starting lineup. The two-time NASCAR Cup Series Champion has finished eighth or worse in NASCAR standings for the past three seasons and has only recorded four wins in that span.
Busch finished 13th overall last season and only managed one win. Despite holding pole position and leading 65 laps at the 2022 Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum, Busch was edged out by Joey Logano. He also struggled at short circuits late last season, finishing 29th at Martinsville and 34th at Bristol during the NASCAR playoffs. See who else is to fade here.
How to make NASCAR 2023 picks at the Coliseum
The model also targets two other drivers with 2023 NASCAR at Coliseum 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.
