This weekend we’ve got a complimentary Card big FOX. We are finally getting the rematch with Dustin Poirier vs Eddie Alvarez after their first fight ended in a No Contest. These are just two of the most exciting fighters in the UFC and we ought to observe an awesome struggle here. DraftKings has some decent contests out for this particular card and I was amazed to see a $20k top prize in their main tournament. That’s what I shall be chasing and I will be making a bunch of LUs to throw to that. Here are a few plays I like for Saturday and my fade of this week:
Money Game play of the week — Stack (Dustin Poirier $8,800 AND Eddie Alvarez $7,400)
This is an effortless way to start my cash LU this week and I anticipate this to be quite popular in most money game formats. These two have been on pace for a top scoring struggle in their first battle and I think we have a simple 100+ involving the both of them . I think the winner of the fight will score more than 100 points and then we add in all of the sig strikes and other points from the loser as well. But we guarantee ourselves that the triumph. The only way this battle doesn’t score over 100 DK points is somebody gets kneed in the head prohibited and the fight is stopped brief….
GPP drama of the week — Hakeem Dawodu ($9,400)
I believe this matchup was put up to get Dawodu a win. I also think Islam Makhachev, who is $200 more, will be quite highly possessed and this may be a fantastic pivot off him to differentiate your LU a bit. I do think Dawodu will obtain some decent ownership as well but I believe he is a good GPP play this week. I believe the most probable outcome in this struggle is Dawodu becoming a (T)KO win. He should pay his off $9.4k salary if that is the situation, particularly if it is early. He is a very good striker and we didn’t get to see that in his UFC debut at which he was upset very early in the struggle. This is the best match for him to flaunt his striking and there was a lot of hype behind him going into his debut. I believe we could observe a 1st round KO here and that makes Hakeem Dawodu my GPP play of this week.
Underdog play of the week — Ion Cutelaba ($7,600)
The most important reason Cutelaba is that my underdog drama of the week is because there is not any way he isn’t scoring at least 10x when he can get the win. He has big power and could get a 1st round KO here and score over 100 DK points. If he does this with his economical salary of $7.6k he will certainly be in the winning lineup. This is a good fight to target either side but points per wages shrewd, Cutelaba has among the higher ceilings on the card. I don’t see this battle going to decision and the winner must score highly. I think if you are making multiple lineups this weekend you must definitely have exposure to Cutelaba.
Fade of this week — Katlyn Chookagian ($8,700)
I am fading a few fighters this week personally, but the individual I never even considered using was Katlyn Chookagian. It’s not that I do not think she could win, because she for sure could. But I don’t see her paying off an $8.7k DK salary with a triumph. I believe we’d require a finish from her in this struggle to receive 10x that wages and I think that is very unlikely to take place. The most Chookagian has scored in a UFC fight up to now in her profession is 83 DK points. That wouldn’t be enough here to place her at the winning lineup at her $8.7k price label. I think if you are making 20 or less lineups that Saturday you may safely fade Chookagian and when she’s a triumph it should not hurt much.
