2023 Food City Dirt Race props, Bristol expert picks, start time, odds: Target Daniel Suarez in NASCAR bets

The NASCAR Cup Series heads to Bristol Motor Speedway for the 2023 Food City Dirt Race on Sunday. This is just the third dirt race for the Cup Series since 1970 as NASCAR at Bristol switched to this from hard surfaces two years ago. Kyle Busch has fared well on both, winning this race five times on concrete and victorious last year on dirt. Joey Logano was the debut winner in 2021 but is a 12-1 longshot in the latest Food City Dirt Race 2023 odds from Caesars Sportsbook.

Fresh off his 20th Cup Series win a week ago, Kyle Larson is the 9-2 favorite for the 7 p.m. ET start on Easter Sunday. Tyler Reddick, who is one of four drivers with top 10s in both of the dirt races, is listed at 6-1 in the 2023 NASCAR at Bristol odds, tying him with Christopher Bell.

2023 NASCAR at Bristol expert picks

One of Bobbitt and Greco's top 2023 Food City Dirt Race prop bets: They are backing Daniel Suarez to finish ahead of Martin Truex Jr. at -110 odds. Both drivers have had a rough last month as neither has a top 10 over the last four races. But Suarez has an edge overall on the season in terms of top 10s as he has three compared to Truex' one.

Suarez has impressive runs in the dirt races over the last two years, with an average finish of eighth place. He led for 58 laps in the 2021 race, which was the third-most, and then led for 64 laps in last year's dirt race, which was second-most. Meanwhile, Truex has an average finish of 20th in these two races, so Bobbitt and Greco are confidently behind Suarez to have a better finish.

"[Suarez] has got the third best average finish in the two dirt races, and has led significant laps in both," Bobbitt and Greco told SportsLine. "He ranks second overall in that category (61.0 laps led) and third in average running position (9.3). He can get it done in these conditions, and we would not be surprised to see him out front on Sunday." See what other NASCAR picks they like at SportsLine.
