The NASCAR Cup Series’ Pocono Organics 350 is set to begin Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET at Pocono Raceway on FOX. DraftKings has DFS contests available for the race, we can find some insight through betting splits. You can set your lineup here.

DraftKings Sportsbook has updated odds for Sunday’s race, but also is providing betting splits to show us how the public is betting the race. Betting an outright winner is never easy in NASCAR, but it shows where confidence lies.

Kyle Busch (+450): 18% handle, 12% bets
Denny Hamlin (+650): 13% handle, 11% bets
Chase Elliott (+800): 10% handle, 8% bets
Kevin Harvick (+650): 8% handle, 8% bets
Martin Truex Jr (+800): 7% handle, 7% bets
Ryan Blaney (+1000): 6% handle, 6% bets
Erik Jones (+1600): 5% handle, 4% bets
Joey Logano (+1100): 5% handle, 6% bets
Brad Keselowski (+900): 4% handle, 4% bets
Kurt Busch (+2000): 3% handle, 2% bets

The favorites are regularly atop these kinds of lists, but if you scroll down, you see Erik Jones and Kurt Busch. Jones is $7,400 and has five top ten finishes in seven races at Pocono. He finished 38th on Saturday, but that came due to his first DNF of the season. Don’t let it dissuade you from adding some cheaper value.

Busch is in his 21st year of racing in the Cup Series, so he has plenty of experience at Pocono. He’s $8,300, so right below the average price point available for our lineups. He is starting third, which opens the door for a move to the front early and some laps led in short order. Jones is a better value, but Busch is worth a look.
