ITS TALLADEGA GEICO 500 NASCAR WEEKEND MOFO’s!! Welcome to the land of the bags and the home of going fast as shit! We’re staying in the infield at Talladega this weekend so Its been busier than usual, but you bet your ass we’re still focused on taking down some tournaments on DraftKings and FanDuel this Sunday
Talladega is a dart board betting weekend, and the preview show this week was about as random as it gets on the NASCAR schedule for us. You can check out my best bets for the Geico 500 on Action Network by clicking this sentence (click it okay?). We’re here to talk DFS tho, and the best piece of advice I can give you is to close your eyes and make lineups.
Make like a shit load of lineups. Like a bazillion lineups. Talladega is all about the Strategy or The Mixure. If you don’t know what that is, you probably are new here, but that’s ok. Just ask Justin Haley about seeing air the next time you’re around him. You never know whos gonna do what.
Aside from the picks you’re about to check out below to build off of, I want to shout out my guy Jeffrey Earnhardt in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Jeffrey is running the #3 car for RCR this weekend and he and his friend Triv have basically become family to me over the years. They were the first guys to embrace me in the pits when I started covering the races from a media perspective, and it’s crazy to see it all come full circle.

NASCAR DFS Lineup Picks | Geico 500 At Talladega
#9 Chase Elliott (DraftKings – $9K | FanDuel – $12.5K)
Elliott is starting P23 on Sunday and after the weekend we’ve had, I feel like this is a big full circle race. Elliott won back in 2019 here and I am betting on him to win again this Sunday. Look for Elliott to be the conductor and run train and find his way to the front for most of the race.
#8 Tyler Reddick (DraftKings – $9.7K | FanDuel – $8.3K)
I don’t care what happened last week in Bristol, I want ALL the Red Dog at Dega. After talking with Reddick he seems calm and cool and after telling him about the BIG RICHARD ENERGY I think he himself feels it now and will be on fire come Sunday. I’m risking it all for Reddick starting P10 to win and I think we will see him take charge with the fire of 1000 suns.
#17 Chris Buescher (DraftKings – $6.9K | FanDuel – $7K)
Buescher starts P30 and is a true beauty of a DFS for us on Sunday. Buescher knows how to superspeedway race, and the RFK group should be strong af at a track their owner (Brad K) has six wins at. Even if he gets caught up (which he won’t) he will still be a points boi.
#77 Landon Cassill (DraftKings – $4.9K | FanDuel – $4K)
Landon is running the 77 car on Sunday and is starting dead last in P39. I’m looking to see Cassill make up some ground and easily get a Top 30 finish. He’s running Xfinity on Saturday (like right now while I’m writing this) and that will wet his whistle for Sunday. Even if he wrecks out, you can’t get negative points, so play him.
