Daytona 500 DFS: Best DraftKings daily fantasy NASCAR picks

Before you set your NASCAR DFS lineups on DraftKings or any other fantasy site for the 2018 Daytona 500, you need to hear what Mike McClure has to say. McClure is a predictive data engineer and DFS pro with more than $1 million in career winnings.

He's crushed his DFS selections in multiple sports recently, producing multiple tournament rosters that have cashed huge in NFL, NBA, golf and NHL.

Now, he's set his sights on NASCAR and revealed his optimal DFS lineup for the Daytona 500 this Sunday. He's sharing that lineup only over at SportsLine.

One driver McClure loves on Sunday: Denny Hamlin, who is $9,800 on DraftKings.

Hamlin, the 2016 Daytona 500 champion, has seven Daytona Speedweek wins during his career and is one of the most skilled racers in the field when it comes to drafting.

He's a favorite to be one of the top finishers because he's one of the best drivers in NASCAR on restrictor-plate tracks. And he's a value play because he's starting second, but is just the fifth most expensive driver.

If you roster Hamlin, you'll also have room to roster his Joe Gibbs Toyota Team teammate, Kyle Busch, who is $10,000 on DraftKings.

Also a former champion in the Daytona summer race, Busch is expected to work with Hamlin to get to the front and produce a strong finish for their team on Sunday.

Busch recorded 22 top-10 finishes last season in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series to go along with 14 top-five finishes and five wins. He's a high-floor option who has proven he can win it all at Daytona.

Lock him in as one of the top overall plays for Sunday.

McClure is also targeting multiple value picks who are in line to give you plenty of DFS points at an extremely low price. These picks are the key to building a star-studded roster that will give you the best chance to cash in big on Sunday.
