This week, we have a 13-fight card at Boise, Idaho. It’s headlined by Junior Dos Santos vs Blagoy Ivanov, that is making his UFC debut. DraftKings has smaller competitions for this card since it’s just a Fight Night card with lesser known name, but there’s still well over $100k to be obtained. I’ll be chasing my fair share of that money and I hope you guys will be . Here are a couple plays I enjoy this weekend and my fade of the week.
Cash Game play of the week — Alexander Volkanovski ($9,200)
I think Volkanovski is the”safest” play on this particular card and also his -300 betting line would agree with me. That’s where I’ll be starting my lineup this week and I will figure out the rest from there. Volkanovski averages 116.5 DK points through his first four UFC fights so he has a ton of upside too. He could potential score more than two other winners on this particular card combined. I really do think he is in drama for GPPs as well for that reason, but he will probably be the most peculiar owned fighter on the card and we don’t care about possession as much in cash games. I would suggest paying up for the expensive price tag in your money games and then look for three or more others wins you’re confident in.
GPP play of this week — Junior Dos Santos ($8,700)
JDS should be the way better striker in this struggle and I believe this is where the fight will take place. He could get KO’d in the opening seconds of the battle and score 0 points, but that is what makes him a GPP play instead of a money game play. With these two Heavyweights, we need to likely see a KO inside the 25-minues and that I feel the former champion, JDS, will be the one to get it. He’s got good takedown defense so he ought to be able to keep this battle on the toes where he’ll have a 4-inch achieve advantage to use.
Underdog play of the week — Niko Price ($7,900)
Niko is going to function as underdog drama of the week. The chances indicate that the fight ought to be rather close and there is a good possibility he utilizes his wrestling to gain the advantage. In 5 fights that he has not seen a decision however, and there’s a possibility it stays that way if he receives Brown into the ground. Niko includes some slick submissions in his arsenal and a great deal of heart. On the toes, Brown probably has the advantage with his reach, but Price does have any sneaky power too, which can not be overlooked. All in all, I enjoy this as a GPP play.
Fade of this week — Alejandro Perez ($9,100)
Perez is the 2nd most expensive fighter on this card and he is only $100 less expensive than Volkanovski. In my opinion, Perez will need a end to really have a shot at paying that pricey salary and I don’t want to invest in that, personally. He has never landed more than one takedown in a struggle and Wineland has excellent takedown defense, so we should see this fight occur on the feet. I believe Perez should be the one to receive his hands raised in the conclusion but I think that it’s going to be through decision. If that’s the case then he could score ~60 points in a win, and also at $9.1k that is not going to win anyone a championship. I’ll be complete fading Perez this week and hoping he doesn’t get the end and he’s my official evaporate of the week.
