The NASCAR’s Xfinity Series’ Sports Clips Haircuts VFW 200 is set to begin Saturday at 12:30 p.m. ET at Darlington Raceway on NBC. 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

Denny Hamlin ($16,000)

Hamlin is priced much higher than the rest of the field, but he’s expensive for a reason. He’s the favorite to win on DraftKings Sportsbook at -125 and will start in 37th on the grid. Hamlin’s ceiling is ridiculously high. His odds to finish inside the top three are set at -455. If he gets there he’ll return a ton of value through place differential.

Justin Haley ($9,000)

Haley’s price has dropped $600 since he won the WaWa 250. He’ll be the pole sitter in this race and has put together some quality streaks and has tallied back-to-back top five finishes five times this season. Momentum is big for Haley and there’s a good chance he won’t drop off after having such a successful race.

Sleeper Picks

Michael Annett ($8,000)

Annett isn’t going to wow you, but his price hasn’t moved much despite three straight top 10 finishes. He’s cracked the top 10 in 59 percent of his races this season and is one of the safest bets you can make. His floor makes him one of the more enticing options cheaper than $9,000.

Riley Herbst ($7,900)

Herbst has just as many top 10 finishes (10) Annett and is right around the same price and has cracked 40 DKFP in three of his last four races. I wouldn’t suggest going with Annett and Herbst, but they have similar ceilings.
