What Dixie Vodka 400 betting splits tell us about picks, DFS lineup strategy

We break down who bettors are backing for the Dixie Vodka 400 on Sunday.

NASCAR wraps up its weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway Sunday afternoon with the Dixie Vodka 400. The race gets underway at 3 p.m. ET and will broadcast on FOX. We’ve got a look at the ten most bet drivers at DraftKings Sportsbook heading into the race at, and you can glean a little bit for your DFS lineups as well.

Kyle Busch is the defending champ and has the third best odds this weekend at +550. He also is getting the most action among all drivers to win the race. He’s sixth in DFS pricing at $10,100. It’s a sizable salary, but he’s starting fourth and his success at Homestead might hold a little more value than some of the top six salaries.

The intriguing value is Tyler Reddick. He’s +2500 to win the race, but has the second most handle and third most bets. He’s never raced in the Cup Series at Homestead, but he has considerable success on lower circuits. In three Xfinity Series races at the track, he’s got two victories and a 4th place finish. In three Truck Series races at the track, he’s finished 2nd, 3rd, and 6th. It’s no surprise he’s getting love at the book. He’s only $7,300 in DFS, and you can just about guarantee he’ll be a popular play on Sunday.
