The NASCAR Cup Series’ FireKeeper Casino 400 is set for Saturday at 4:00 p.m. ET. The race will be aired on NBCS and will run at Michigan International Speedway. DraftKings has DFS contests available for the race, and we break down some ideal picks and sleepers below. You can set your lineup here.

Best Bets

Kevin Harvick ($11,000)

This is the cheapest Harvick has been in three races. He tallied his eighth straight top five finish earlier this month and has won two of his last six races at Michigan. He’s the favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook at +450 and will start third on the grid.

Joey Logano ($9,700)

Logano is the pole sitter and has the third best odds to win +700. He’s thrived at Michigan in the past and has three career wins there. I think Logano has a good chance to utilize his starting position to dominate at a track where he’s been very comfortable over the years.

Sleepers

Kyle Busch ($9,500)

Busch has to get it together at some point, right? He has the best average finishing position (5.83) at Michigan in the Cup Series since February of 2017. He hasn’t finished outside the top 10 at Michigan in six races and has a real chance to win. he was building up some serious momentum before crashing in his last race. He’s pricey for a sleeper, but people could be tired of last year’s champ not getting the job done and phase him out.

Clint Bowyer ($7,400)

Bowyer has logged 28 starts at Michigan and has tallied one win. While he hasn’t logged a top 10 finish in four races, he finished second at the NASCAR All-Star race after starting in ninth on the grid. He could be a less popular option that gives you much-needed variance.
