Saturday night’s Coke Zero Sugar 400 (7 p.m. ET, NBC) at Daytona could get wild.
The NASCAR Cup Series’ final regular season race has plenty of playoff implications, including the ability for a sleeper to steal a win and punch his ticket to the playoffs.
Because this is the final chance for drivers who are not already locked in to secure a berth in NASCAR’s postseason, the pack racing at Daytona International Speedway will be even more intense than normal, which is saying something.
I’ve already locked in two drivers to win tonight’s Coke Zero Sugar 400 and am adding a former Daytona winner at double-digit odds to be the top finisher for his manufacturer to my betting card.

NASCAR at Daytona Picks
Since breaking into the NASCAR Cup Series, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. has been one of the top superspeedway racers on the circuit.
Stenhouse’s two Cup Series wins have come at Talladega and Daytona and he always seems to be in the mix at these race tracks.
With this in mind, I really can’t argue against him at +2200 to win tonight’s Coke Zero Sugar 400.
However, I’m opting to back Stenhouse as the top finishing Chevy at +1000 instead, which is posted at DraftKings Sportsbook.
By focusing solely on his manufacturer, we get to avoid the big teams like Joe Gibbs Racing, Team Penske and Stewart-Haas Racing, while also dodging some of the longer shot drivers who could secure top finishes, like Daytona 500 winner Michael McDowell, Matt DiBenedetto, Bubba Wallace, Ryan Newman and Chris Buescher.
Odds of 10-1 translate to an implied probability of 9.09% to be the top finishing Chevy driver, which I very much prefer to the 4.35% that 22-1 odds imply to beat the entire field and win the race.
