We go over some optimal DFS picks ahead of Sunday’s Truck Series race at Daytona.

NASCAR’s Gander RV and Outdoor Truck Series has the Sunoco 159 set for 12:00 p.m. ET on Sunday. The road course race takes place at Daytona International Speedway. DraftKings has DFS contests available for the race, and we go over some top picks and sleepers below. You can set your lineup here.

Best Bets

Brett Moffitt ($9,300)

Moffitt is somehow the eighth priciest option despite being the favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook. While his odds have dropped from +200 to +225, he’s still an excellent road course driver. It’s hard not to take advantage of his affordable price here.

Alex Tagliani ($10,800)

The gap between Tagliani and Moffit is shrinking. Tagliani’s odds were originally +400, but he’s jumped to +350 ahead of Sunday. He was neck and neck with Moffitt at the Chevrolet Silverado 250 last year and has a ton of place differential upside starting 21st on the grid.

Sleepers

Ben Rhodes ($8,400)

Rhodes isn’t really a sleeper, but he’s priced like one. He has the fourth best odds to win at +1100 and finished directly behind Moffitt and Tagliani in last August’s road race. Getting one of the top contenders for under $9,000 is a bargain.

Zane Smith ($8,100)

Smith is the pole sitter in this race after winning the Henry Ford Health System 200 last week. He’s cracked the top 10 in three straight races. While Smith is a little bit of a risk because of his lack of road course success, he has optimal starting position and momentum on his side.
