NASCAR Picks for Darlington 400

It's been more than two months since the last NASCAR 2020 Cup Series race, but the action is finally set to return this weekend in Darlington, South Carolina.

Drivers will hope to shake off the rust quickly as they compete in the Darlington 400.

Darlington 400 Picks

CBS Sports
The CBS Sports model is high on Erik Jones, who has relatively long odds of +1300 on FanDuel Sportsbook, to win the race.

Sports Interaction
David Bastl, of Sports Interaction likes this season's Driver Rating leader, Chase Elliott, to return to the track with a win this week.

FanDuel Sportsbook
The betting markets on FanDuel Sportsbook don't have a clear single favorite. Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch are tied for the best odds to win, both sitting at +500.


Overall, there is no consensus among the highlighted experts this week. That shouldn't come as much of a surprise with the uncertainty surrounding this return to racing, but it's still notable.

The experts we highlighted above voiced confidence in:
- Erik Jones
- Chase Elliott
- Kevin Harvick
- Kyle Busch
