Told you guys Daytona would be a mess for folks.
But it wasn't for us. We had a 6+ Unit weekend at LineMovers on the NASCAR.
15 Cup cars finish on the lead lap, out of 40. Most of the 25 not on the lead lap were damaged in the various accidents of the day. An attrition rate in the 60-plus percent area..
But, as we predicted for clients on the Telegram feed and in our blogs & pod from midweek on, this was headed toward a Ford-dominant weekend.
And it was.
First-time Cup winner Austin Cindric was strong all day and while we didn't have him to win, he was the phrase that paid for units of Any Ford to Win and Any Penske Ford to win.
We went 5-1 in Cup matchups as well for a +3.59U across all Cup bets on Sunday.
On Saturday in Xfinity, we hit 3-1 on Matchups but gave some back on a few DARTS that did not hit on longer shots to win. Still, +0.40 Units on Saturday.
And on Friday? No one does Trucks better anywhere. I firmly believe that.
It's a grind sometimes, but I specialize in the NASCAR Trucks and when we bet stuff few people watch, our edge is even bigger.
We hit the Winner in Zane Smith at +1400 in one of our four DART picks to Win.
We went 2-1 in full unit Matchups.
And, there were so many good Truck plays available in the first week of the season, we threw out four more free ones on Twitter on Thursday & Friday......and went 4-0. Wish we'd scored them, hope you did.
That's +2.05U on Trucks and +6.05U for the whole NASCAR weekend.
Next week? Trucks are off, Xfinity & Cup go back to California for the first time since March of 2020.
Expect a long, boring fuel mileage race.......and we'll get to see where the top teams are on the new high horsepower engine program in the new cars.
Throw out Daytona; almost nothing we learned this weekend will be of use at California. Time to spool up the research machine again.
This is like Michigan, but with way more tire wear.
Expect to see early lines Monday from Barstool and Draft Kings. But be in no hurry. Best single car lines are almost always at FanDuel closer to midweek.
