Daily Fantasy NASCAR Picks for the 2020 South Point 400

Daily Fantasy NASCAR Picks for the South Point 400 in 2020

My NASCAR DFS picks didn’t produce a winner last week, but they still were plenty solid. Chase Elliott finished 7th, Kyle Busch was 2nd, and Daniel Suarez wasn’t a terrible punt given his price.

Alex Bowman and Austin Dillon cracked the top-16, but I didn’t get the winner of the Bass Pro Shops Night Race, and William Byron failed to finish.

The latter was the most damaging element of last week’s daily fantasy NASCAR picks and was the main reason my squad didn’t cash.

This weekend, we have another fun NASCAR event, as the best drivers in the world compete to win the South Point 400.

If you plan on betting on the event, check out our 2020 South Point 400 betting preview. For the DFS side of things, let’s dive into my top NASCAR DFS picks and favorite lineup for Sunday.

Martin Truex Jr. ($10.6k)

Truex has not been sharp in two of his last three races, but he’s otherwise been fantastic all year long. He comes into this weekend with an impressive 20 finishes inside the top-10, as well as one win.

His recent form is mostly good, as he’s cracked the top-5 in eight of his last 10 events. The oddsmakers like him this week, as he has the second-best odds (+550), right behind Kevin Harvick.

Harvick is undeniably on fire these days, as he has a mind-boggling nine wins. That said, Truex Jr. won at this event last year, and he finished third the year prior.

Costing $1.1k less than Harvick and coming off of a bad week, there is some hope his ownership will be down a little.

That sounds good to me, as Truex has dominated at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, racking up finishes of 1st, 8th, 3rd, 4th, and 1st the last five times he’s been there for a Cup Series event.

Give me all of the Truex as an elite building block for the 2020 South Point 400.

Chris Buescher ($6.2k)

How about some savings? One of my favorite NASCAR DFS sleepers for this weekend has to be Chris Buescher, who is in pretty good form, and ran well at this event last year.

Buescher is obviously nicely priced, but he’s also looking good after finishing 8th last weekend. He now has two top-10 runs over his last four races, too, and was solid here with an 18th finish at the 2019 South Point 400.

The 27-year old has just one Cup Series win to his name, but he’s been competitive at this track, finishing 14th, 18th, 18th, and 15th over his last four appearances.

The value is easy to see, and Buescher’s track record and recent form help make him stand out as a solid sleeper pick.

Matt DiBenedetto ($7.9k)

You need to save a little more cash if you want to load up on some good drivers, so let’s take a look at Matt DiBenedetto.

Adam Haynes breaks down the betting side of things and listed DiBenedetto among his sleeper picks to win the South Point 400 this weekend, and it got me to thinking about his DFS value.

DiBenedetto has been rock solid. He finished 19th last week, and has been inside the top-20 in eight of his last 10 runs. He even has a win on the year, and was reasonably competitive here with a 21st place finish last year.

This isn’t a threat to win in my eyes, but DiBenedetto offers solid value and I think he’s a relatively safe play that won’t be an utter failure and sink our NASCAR DFS lineups.

My Favorite NASCAR DFS Lineup for September 27th

  • Martin Truex Jr. ($10.6k)
  • Chris Buescher ($6.2k)
  • Matt DiBenedetto ($7.9k)
  • Ty Dillon ($5.9k)
  • Brad Keselowski ($11.4k)
  • Austin Dillon ($7.6k)

I already broke down three of my favorite daily fantasy NASCAR picks for the South Point 400, but I’m rounding out this week’s lineup with another punt play in Ty Dillon, Austin Dillon, and another heavy-hitter in Keselowski.

People are going to fall in love with Harvick, and rightfully so. You can go against me and roster him, or just replace Keselowski with him in this team. But I love the pivot away from Harvick, as rostering Keselowski and Truex together will probably be somewhat contrarian.

If that doesn’t give us an edge on ownership, maybe these NASCAR DFS value picks will. I like both of the Dillons, with Ty being an elite value. He finished 16th in this event last year, and he’s coming in with decent form following an 18th place run last weekend.

Austin Dillon is a bit safer, as he finished 12th here last year, and has been very competitive all year.

Do you necessarily want to bet on these value picks at the top NASCAR betting sites? No, but they help me get two studs that I think finish in the top-5 or even win this thing.

Whether you use this lineup, a variation of it, or do something else entirely, I wish you luck this weekend. Enjoy the race!
