2019 Digital Ally 400 DFS: Best DraftKings, FanDuel daily fantasy NASCAR at Kansas picks
SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro with almost $2 million in winnings, gives optimal lineup advice
Martin Truex Jr. earned his second win of the NASCAR season last Sunday at the Gander RV 400 in Dover and moved from fifth in the Monster Energy Cup standings to third. Now, NASCAR heads to Kansas Speedway, and the top circuit will run on Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. ET in the Digital Ally 400. One of the newest tracks on the NASCAR schedule, the 1.5-mile tri-oval provides exciting action twice a year. And with thousands of dollars on the line in NASCAR DFS tournaments and cash games on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings, track history will be key. Truex Jr., Joey Logano and Chase Elliott are just a few of the drivers with past victories at Kansas and they'll likely be common inclusions in optimal NASCAR DFS lineups. But before you make your NASCAR DFS picks, you should see the NASCAR DFS strategy and advice from DFS millionaire Mike McClure.
McClure is a predictive data engineer and DFS pro with nearly $2 million in career winnings. He's crushed his DFS selections in several sports recently, including producing multiple tournament rosters that have cashed huge.
He was all over his NASCAR picks last week at the Gander RV 400, locking Truex Jr. in his FanDuel and his DraftKings lineup. The result: Truex Jr. captured victory at Dover, and anybody who had him in their lineup was well their way to a huge day.
For Saturday's Digital Ally 400, we can tell you McClure is banking on Kevin Harvick at $14,000 on FanDuel and $10,600 on DraftKings. Harvick sits in third in the NASCAR standings on the back of five top-five finishes through the first 11 races of the season. That includes a fourth-place run last week at Dover to give him two top-four finishes in the last three races. The 43-year-old finished in the top eight in NASCAR's three previous stops at 1.5-mile tracks, so he's dialed into the new aerodynamics package for speedway racing.
Harvick also has a history of success at Kansas, having won three career races there on the top circuit. That includes a win in this event a season ago. It's also beneficial that he typically starts well at Kansas, with seven front-row qualify runs in the last seven years.
Another driver he's rostering: Clint Bowyer ($11,500 on FanDuel, $8,500 on DraftKings), who has finished in the top 10 in five of his last six events. Bowyer took ninth last week at Dover and was second in Fort Worth the last time NASCAR ran at a 1.5-mile oval. His Stewart Haas Racing Ford is set up for success running in crowds created by the new aerodynamics package at this distance.
McClure is also targeting a value driver with a strong track record at Kansas. He's in prime position to make a run at the checkered flag and comes at a price that won't break the bank. This pick could be the difference between cashing huge in your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
So what is the optimal NASCAR DFS tournament lineup for the 2019 Digital Ally 400? And which value driver is a must-roster? Visit SportsLine now to see DFS millionaire Mike McClure's complete optimal lineups for FanDuel and DraftKings, and cash in big on NASCAR at Kansas.
