100 (True) - Cook Out Southern 500 Matchups @ Draftkings

Kurt Busch (-115) vs. Aric Almirola (-115)

Busch has four top seven finishes in his last five Darilngton starts including five in the last seven overall. Almirola, has one top seven finish in 10 career Darlington tries himself. 

Pick: Busch (-115) 7*

Martin Truex Jr. (-134) vs. Chase Elliott (+100)

Truex is on a hot streak on the season but has no top five finishes at Darlington since his win in 2016. He has two top fives in his 16 career tries there. Elliott, has six top 10 finishes in his last seven starts on the season too. He's on the pole for Sunday's Southern 500 and has a top five finish in two of his last four Darlington tries. It should be 3-for-4 if not for being crashed while on his way to win back on May 20. Elliott, was fourth in Race 1 in May at Darlington and should have won race 2. 

Pick: Elliott (+100) 7*

Joey Logano (-136) vs. Ryan Blaney (+105)

Logano has six top 10 finishes in his last seven Cup starts on the season including seven over the last nine. Blaney, has one top five in his last 13 tries and six finishes of 20th or worse in his last 13 overall starts. Logano has four top six finishes in his last seven Darlington tries while Blaney has never scored a top 10 there. 

Pick: Logano (-136) 7*

Tyler Reddick (-143) vs. Christopher Bell (+108)

Reddick ran great at Darlington back in May. This track suits his driving style as he loves to race near the wall. He and Bell split a head-to-head in the two races back in May, but if Reddick stays out of trouble, there's no reason to believe he can't cross the finish line in front of Bell on Sunday night. 

Pick: Reddick (-143) 5*

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks. We typically have between 5-10 legal and reputable sportsbooks for our handicappers to select lines from. They are required to select the current line from these featured books so authenticity can always be confirmed – no stale lines!
