NASCAR’s Cup Series rolls into Dover International Speedway this week for Sunday’s Gander RV 400 at 1 p.m. on FOX Sports 1.

<p>With Chase Elliott’s victory last Sunday at Talladega, he became the sixth different driver to win a Cup Series point race this season. The Top 3 in that race included some surprising faces at longer odds with Alex Bowman taking second and Ryan Preece finishing third.</p><p>The odds at <a href=";book=5dimes" target="_blank">5Dimes</a> to win this Sunday’s race are on the board and the following three drivers top my list when it comes to their overall betting value.</p><p></p><h2><strong>Kevin Harvick +500</strong></h2><p></p><p>Sooner or later Harvick is going to get off the schneid and win his first race of the season. As the second-favorite on the board for this Sunday, I am banking on the 11<sup>th</sup> point race of the year being the charm. With the exception of wreck at Daytona in the season opener and last week’s wreck at Talladega, the No. 4 Ford has been competitive in the other eight point races this season. Seven of those runs were in the top 10 and Harvick has finished fourth in four separate events. This team is currently in fourth place in the Cup Series standings with 350 total points.</p><p>Most of the value in his betting odds this week are tied to his victory in this event last season. The Monster Mile has been hit or miss for Harvick over the years with an average finishing position of 14.2, but the sense of urgency to get that first victory of the season continues to build.</p><p></p><h2><strong>Kurt Busch +1500</strong></h2><p></p><p>Kyle Busch tops the list as the favorite to win at +375 odds, but I really like the added value in big brother Kurt for this Sunday’s race. He has his No. 1 Chevrolet race team in eighth place in the standings with 323 total points. This is on the strength of seven runs inside the top 10 in the first 10 races of the year. This includes a second-place finish behind his younger brother at Bristol a few weeks back. The elder Busch managed to finish sixth in last Sunday’s race after starting 14<sup>th</sup> in the initial running order.</p><p>This is another driver that adds value to this week’s odds with their recent performance at Dover. Kurt’s only career win at this track in a Cup Series event was in 2011, but he was competitive in both races last season with fifth-place finishes in each event.</p><p></p><h2><strong>Daniel Suarez +4100</strong></h2><p></p><p>The Mexican-born driver will be racing on Cinco de Mayo in search of his first career Cup Series victory in just his third-full time season at NASCAR’s highest level. While his early record this season includes just one finish inside the top five, it was a very encouraging third-place run at Texas. With three more finishes inside the top 10, Suarez has the No. 41 Ford in 12<sup>th</sup> place in the current standings with 266 points. There is a reason why his odds are so long to win, but this could be the week everything comes together for the promising young gun.</p><p>The main reason why he is my top-valued longshot for this Sunday’s race is his limited, but impressive record at Dover. In four previous trips around the Monster Mile in a Cup Series event, he has place 10<sup>th</sup> or better each time. This includes a third-place finish in this event last season.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;What do you need to know about Dover before filling out NASCAR DFS lineups for the Gander RV 400?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;🏎➡️ &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— FanDuel (@FanDuel) &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;April 30, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</p>
