Saturday features an exciting Cup Series race at Pocono Raceway in Pennsylvania. Aric Almirola, Ryan Blaney, Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch, and Chase Elliott will make up the top five to start the race. Monkey Knife Fight has an extremely easy fantasy point system: 0.1 points for each lap led and then a set amount of points for their position (20 for 1st place, 19 for 2nd place, 18 for 3rd, and so on).

Pick 1: More or Less Fantasy Points (2/2)
Recommended Prop Pick: Kevin Harvick OVER 17.5 Fantasy Points and Kyle Busch OVER 16.5 Fantasy Points
Harvick and Busch are projected to be two of the highest fantasy point producers on Saturday and lucky for us, we can bet the over on both of them.
Busch is currently a betting co-favorite at 5 to 1 odds and he won this race last year. Starting in fourth-place gives him an excellent chance to get to the front of the pack and rack up some laps led points early. If he is able to get to the front for 50 laps or so, a top 10 finish would put Busch well on his way to breaking through 16.5 fantasy points.
Harvick is the other co-favorite at 5 to 1 odds and though he doesn't have as good of a chance to get to the front of the pack early, a top-three finish from Harvick seems extremely likely. With just a top-five finish and 25 laps led, Harvick will break through his 17.5 fantasy point threshold.
Pick 2: More or Less Fantasy Points (2/3)
Recommended Prop Pick: Kevin Harvick OVER 17.5 Fantasy Points, Kyle Busch OVER 16.5 Fantasy Points, Denny Hamlin UNDER 16.5 Fantasy Points
This prop gives us an excellent chance to be a bit more aggressive. With the limited drivers that MNF offers, finding a few individual props that you are confident about and using them in multiple contests seems to be the way to attack a race.
As mentioned above, Harvick and Busch are projected to be the top two drivers on Saturday. The fact that we can take the over on both of them again in this prop bet is excellent.
As for Hamlin, taking the under seems to be the sharper side when taking this prop as a whole into consideration. If Harvick and Busch are able to hit their overs on fantasy points, there is a really good chance that they will both lead a good chuck of laps. At only 130 total laps, that does not leave many opportunities for drivers like Hamlin to rack up those laps led points. In addition, the RotoBaller NASCAR Lineup Optimizer does not project Hamlin all that well. As long as he leads less than 35 or so laps, expect Hamlin to hit the under on 16.5 fantasy points more often than not.
