Toyota Save Mart 450 Top DraftKings Picks
Chase Elliott ($10,500)
Elliott picked up hist first win of the season two weeks back at the EchoPark Texas Grand Prix. He followed that up with a runner-up finish last week at the Coca-Cola 600. Chase has now finished top 10 in each of his last five races, and top 5 in four of those. He placed 4th at this event in 2018.
Matt DiBenedetto ($8,200)
DiBenedetto had seven straight top 15 finishes (with two top 5’s) from the end of March to early May. He’s struggled a bit since then, but he’s been trending in the right direction at this event. (I think that’s the saying?) He finished 23rd in 2017, 17th in 2018 and 5th in 2019.
Chris Buescher (7,200)
Buescher is having a nice year with five top 10’s, including one last week at the Coca Cola 600. He started in 27th and finished 8th for 58 DK FPTS. That’s now at least 40 DK FPTS over four of his last five races. At this event, he’s finished top 20 each of the last three years, with the best finish being a 12th in 2018.
Ryan Preece ($6,800)
Preece has picked up differential points in each of his last four races. Including EchoPark, where he started in 36th and finished 15th. He placed 29th here during his rookie year in 2019. Which obviously isn’t great, but a wise man named Loki once said “I consider experience, experience”.
