Which of the high-end drivers will take the checkered flag at Sunday’s 2020 Pocono 350, which starts at 4 p.m. ET? And which affordable options in the NASCAR DFS driver pool for Pocono should be in your 2020 Pocono 350 DFS lineups? Before making any NASCAR DFS picks, be sure to check out the optimal NASCAR DFS strategy and advice from SportsLine daily Fantasy expert Mike McClure.
He’s won almost $2 million in his career as a daily Fantasy pro, and his NASCAR DFS driver pool, projections and advice can help you score a big win on Sunday. McClure dominated NASCAR DFS at the 2020 Daytona 500, turning a 4x ROI after rostering four of the top seven drivers. He then crushed the 2020 Real Heroes 400, with his top three picks — Denny Hamlin, Erik Jones and Martin Truex Jr. — all finishing in the top eight. He also had Truex Jr. No. 1 in his DraftKings value rankings for his win at Martinsville. Anybody who has followed his picks has seen huge returns.
Now, he’s turned his attention to Sunday’s 2020 Pocono 350. He’s only sharing his picks and NASCAR DFS driver pool here.
Top 2020 Pocono 350 NASCAR DFS picks
For the 2020 Pocono 350, McClure is high on Erik Jones at $10,000 on FanDuel and $7,400 on DraftKings. The 24-year-old is an emerging star with two NASCAR playoff appearances in the last two seasons and he’ll look to use Pocono Raceway to vault himself back into contention on Sunday after failing to finish Saturday’s race.
Jones finished second at Pocono last July and also carded a third-place finish in the June race. He also finished fifth there in the July 2018 race and third there in the June 2017 race. Saturday was just his seventh start at Pocono in the NASCAR Cup Series, so he’s already proven he’s mastered the Tricky Triangle.
McClure’s NASCAR DFS strategy also includes rostering Kyle Busch at $11,000 on DraftKings and $13,500 on FanDuel. The defending NASCAR Cup Series champion has had plenty of success at Pocono over the years. In fact, Busch has recorded eight straight top-10 finishes at The Tricky Triangle, which includes three victories since 2017.
The 35-year-old has also recorded 56 Cup Series wins in his career, which ranks second only to Jimmie Johnson (83) among active drivers. Busch’s familiarity with Pocono Raceway coupled with his past experiences make him one of the top overall NASCAR DFS picks for Sunday’s Pocono 350.
