Fun race here in Daytona! The main thing I have been accounting for in my DFS lineups is who is more likely to wreck here than not. When it comes to my best bets I have factored this in as well.
Based on what I have seen this season and the results from this years prior races combined with historical data. My top 6 finishers are: Chris Buescher 6th place, Aric Almirola 5th place, Brad Keselowski 4th place, Chase Elliott 3rd place, Kevin Harvick 2nd place, and Denny Hamlin 1st place.
Kevin Harvick top 10 finish (-150) is a great value here and should be higher. Harvick won the poll here and always races hard at Daytona. What’s different about this race? Kevin Harvick is having an amazing season and this is his chance to enter the playoffs in the number one slot.
What to stay away from! Austin Dillon (-115) H2H Matt Dibenedetto (-115). This is a coin flip. Both have had similar performances at Daytona in the past. One may argue Dibenedetto is having the hotter season. However, Austin Dillon is historically good at this track; while not having a bad season himself.
Ricky Stenthouse Jr. to win Group C (+235). This is a sweet spot for Stenthouse Jr. Having a good year and looking to build on that with a big performance at Daytona. He is due for a big day and what better opportunity than Daytona. Stenthouse Jr. will be h2h with Kurt Busch, Clint Bowyer, and Alex Bowman. All guys have shined at different points in the season but have not gotten over the hump. I foresee Stenthouse Jr. finishing inside the top 10 today. I don’t see any of the other drivers in Group C being able to crack the top 10 beside Ricky Stenthouse Jr.
