We break down the ideal picks for Sunday’s Dixie Vodka 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The NASCAR Cup Series’ Dixie Vodka 400 is set to begin Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET at Homestead Miami Speedway. The race will be on FOX a day after the Xfinity Cup Series’ Hooters 250. DraftKings has DFS contests available for the event, and we break down some ideal picks and sleepers below. You can set your lineup here.

Best Bets

Martin Truex Jr. ($11,400)

Truex is fresh off his first win of the season. He has momentum, and his average finishing position at Homestead is 6.42. He’s only finished in the top five since 2018. While Harvick only has one career win at the track, he’s favored at +450 on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Ryan Blaney ($8,800)

Wins have continued to elude Blaney. He’s notched four top five finishes in his last five races He’s bound to make something happen eventually given how well he’s driving. Even if he doesn’t finish first, he’s one of the drivers most likely to lead rack up points on fast laps.

Sleeper Picks

Michael McDowell ($5,200)

McDowell has been a trendy value play as of late and has performed at an above average level as of late. He’s eclipsed 40 DKFP in two of his last three races, which is significantly higher than his usual average of 28.2.

Cole Custer ($6,000)

Custer was a staple in quite a few successful lineups last weekend. While his ceiling isn’t crazy high, you can use him starting in 35th to your advantage. He tallied 38 fantasy points the only other time he started at 30th or worse this season.
