Go ahead and click your heels three times because NASCAR is headed back to Kansas Speedway for the Hollywood Casino 400!
Last week, Kyle Larson took me to 6-1 on picking winners in the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs, but the DFS day was trashed due to the “Texadega” crash early in the race. Sometimes things don’t always go as planned when building lineups on DraftKings, but it’s important to remember that if you stay the course good things come.

For DFS purposes this week, I’m looking to play 20 lineups on DraftKings as usual, and have my four guys ready to roll in the majority of those lines. There’s a lot to factor in this week for DFS and Betting due to how close we are to the championship. Both Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano find themselves below the cut line, and both have had good runs in the past at this track.
If there is one thing I can say heading into this race at Kansas, It’s that I feel nothing short of confident when it comes to betting. With that being said, It’s time to stack some cash and bag some tourneys!
Hollywood Casino 400: NASCAR DFS Lineup Picks For Draftkings & FanDuel
NASCAR DFS Lineup Picks & Best Bets For DraftKings Sportsbook
#11 Denny Hamlin – ($11K | To Win +550 )
Hamlin is totally worth a play on Sunday at Kansas for a few different reasons, but mainly because the narrative is trending towards him to snatch up a win (or at least a Top 5). The reason he has a spot this week is because I truly think he’s capable of winning this race, and dominating the track after his bad luck at Texas. Hamlin starts P6 on Sunday, and he’s going to be ready to put on a show.
I am taking Hamlin to win this race, and putting 1.5 units down for a potential 8.5 Unit Payout.
#48 Alex Bowman – ($9.8K | Bowman > Bell +105 )
Bowman was caught up in the Texadega crash last Sunday, but before the race began he suffered a penalty due to failing inspection (you know that car was fast). This weekend he is starting P25 because of it, and is going to be a no-brainer for place differential. His stats at this track may be a little up and down, but when a Hendrick car is starting towards the back of the pack, I want all the exposure I can get.
I also really like his odds to finish ahead of Christopher Bell this week on DraftKings Sportsbook.
#8 Tyler Reddick – ($8.4K | To Win +2200 )
Tyler “Red Dawg” Reddick has been on fire lately at the intermediate tracks, and when looking at this recent success, I can’t just sit back and not have a piece of that action. Reddick started out his Cup Series resume finishing inside the Top 10 at this track, and has done a decent job keeping his record clean over the past few seasons, aside from some hiccups. The good news is that with him starting P12, he will likely not be as heavily owned, and has true Top 5 potential this time around in search for his first NASCAR Cup Series Win.
I’m putting .5 Units on Reddick to win this race for a potential 11 Unit payout on DraftKings Sportsbook. I also don’t mind betting on a Top 5 finish for him at +250.
#47 Ricky Stenhouse Jr. – ($7K | Group F Winner +250 )
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. is another driver I’m turning back to for Kansas this weekend, and I really don’t care what anyone has to say about it. When you look at his stats over the years, he’s proven that he can get the place differential points needed to help a strong lineup rise to the top. Starting P28, I expect him to finish inside the Top 20 with ease as long as we can avoid any sort of wreckage.
If you’re a fan of Group Betting on DraftKings Sportsbook, I’d recommend taking him to finish first in Group F at +250.
