There’s a good deal of cash to be obtained this week DraftKings including a top prize of $30k in the main tournament. DK also has lots of Qualifier contests on this week, in which the last event will pay $50k into 1st if you did qualify to perform inside. I’ll be pursuing those as well because we’ve not ever had a $50k 1st place prize and I need it. I do think we’ve got a enjoyable card this Saturday and that I am ready to go into this 3-week break using a winning night in UFC 227. Here are a few plays I like this weekend along with my fade of the week.
Cash Game play of this week — Demetrious Johnson ($9,400)
Demetrious Johnson is the safest play in all DFS MMA and he has the highest ceiling too. DJ is the P4P best fight on earth (not counting Jon Jones) and he has beat Cejudo once before. This is the first person I am plugging into my cash LU this week and I suggest you do exactly the same. DJ is almost guaranteed to score at 100-points in a triumph, and he’s got a -550 gambling line stating he should find the win again here. Play it safe and use DJ in money. You can stack this battle as well, however I think DJ is essential.
GPP play of this week — Thiago Santos ($9,200)
This is a good fight to target this week since it most likely won’t go to a decision. Holland just fought on the Contender Series that a couple weeks back and didn’t receive a contract. But now he is about the PPV against one of the scariest strikers in the branch. The ITD line for Santos is now -210 and the under 1.5 rounds betting line is -160. This tells me Vegas believes this fight ends early and Santos is the guy that should pick up the end. At $9.2k, he readily pays that price tag off at a 1st round win and I presume he’s a good shot at doing just that. I don’t care for him in money game formats though because both guys have quite lower flooring, so this is a GPP just play for me personally.
Underdog play of this week — Brett Johns ($7,400)
I think everyone is writing off Brett Johns after his loss to Aljo Sterling and that is why he is so cheap on DraftKings this weekend. With the wrestling fashion Johns brings to the table, he has 100+ upside even in a decision win. Of course, we are worried about him becoming caught in a guillotine if he shoots takedowns, but if he can avoid I think he can win this fight and 10x his wages with a triumph. I don’t think Johns will want to hit with Munhoz for 15-minutes so that I really do believe he is going to be shooting for takedowns. Those takedowns could get him submitted, or else they could get him a triumph on the scorecards. However, this makes him a boom or bust play and that’s why he is a solid underdog to pick in GPPs this past week.
Fade of this week — Danielle Taylor ($7,500)
Even in a cheap $7.5k on DraftKings, Taylor will still require a end to pay that price label off with her style. She has the worst fashion possible for scoring DraftKings point and even if she gets a triumph here she could wind up scoring significantly less than some losers on the card. Taylor will be the least possessed fighter in GPPs this week, so if you want to spend your money on a 115 lb woman with a”punchers chance” of winning you a GPP, then you will be quite contrarian taking that path. But I have no interest in investing my money into that I will have Taylor in 0 of my lineups this week. If I had been making 150 lineups, I would still complete vanish Taylor here.
