Today’s NASCAR Cup Series The Real Heroes 400 at Darlington Raceway is scheduled to go green at 3:30 p.m. ET (FOX), meaning it’s officially race day!
Darlington odds are now widely available across the market, including props for top-three and top-10 finishes.
For those new to NASCAR betting, these props are basically the same as betting outright futures, except your driver has to finish among the top three or top 10 cars, depending on which market you bet, to cash your wager.
Let’s look at one sleeper very capable of scoring a top-10 finish at plus-money odds.
NASCAR at Darlington Odds, Prop Pick
I already jumped on Tyler Reddick to win this race at 110-1 odds and for many of the same reasons I’m doubling down on the rookie, this time to finish in the top 10.
While Reddick does not have a start at Darlington in NASCAR’s Cup Series, he has finished in the top three in each of the past two XFINITY Series races at “The Lady in Black,” including leading the most laps in last season’s event.
Those races also included plenty of Cup Series stars, with Brad Keselowski winning in 2018 and Denny Hamlin appearing to have won last year before failing post-race inspection, giving the victory to Cole Custer.

So Reddick wasn’t simply among the best of the XFINITY Series regulars, he was dicing it up and leading laps with the likes of Keselowski, Hamlin, Kevin Harvick, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Ryan Blaney and Chase Elliott.
In addition, Darlington is known for its excessive tire wear, and while it’s not a perfect comparison, Reddick finished 11th at Auto Club Speedway earlier this season, another track known for significant tire falloff.
The bet: Tyler Reddick to Finish in the Top 10 (+175)
