Fantasy Live Picks for Pocono

Facebooktwitter

The monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will compete at Pocono Sunday. Last week was a disaster since my two top drivers (Martin Truex Jr. and Kyle Busch) decided to wreck each other. Hopefully they play nice today.

There are only 160 laps in the race Sunday. That means there are only 160 bonus points available for leading laps and fastest laps this week. Kyle Busch led 149 of the 100 laps last year and it could happen again.

My strategy this week is to take two dominators (Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr.), two drivers who can finish both Stages in the top 10 (Ryan Blaney and Kasey Kahne) and one cheap driver who can score position differential points (Danica Patrick). This strategy should give my team the best chance to score maximum points Sunday.

NASCAR is using a condensed schedule this week so I have a short time to post my picks. I will not have time to break down why I selected the drivers I did. Next week the series is using the same schedule so I will have a short amount of time to make picks for Watkins Glen. The series will be back to a normal schedule the following week at Michigan. Sorry for the inconvenience.

 

Here are my picks for the Overton’s 400…

Martin Truex Jr. $28.00 (Starts 2nd)

Kyle Busch $27.00 (Starts Pole)

Kasey Kahne $17.25 (Starts 12th)

Ryan Blaney $18.00 (Starts 5th)

Danica Patrick $10.00 (Starts 29th) *I have Danica at $8.50

PICK TO WIN: Kyle Busch

MANUFACTURER: Toyota

 

If you cannot afford my team, this is another team I plan to use today.
