This weekend we’ve got a complimentary Card on big FOX. We are finally getting the rematch with Dustin Poirier vs Eddie Alvarez after their first battle ended in a No Contest. These are two of the most exciting fighters in the UFC and we ought to see an awesome struggle here. DraftKings has some adequate competitions out for this particular card and I was amazed to see a $20k top prize in their main tournament. That is precisely what I shall personally be pursuing and I will be making a bunch of LUs to throw into that. Listed below are a Couple of plays I enjoy for Saturday and my fade of this week:
Money Game play of this week — Stack (Dustin Poirier $8,800 AND Eddie Alvarez $7,400)
This is an effortless way to begin my money LU this week and I anticipate this to be very popular in all money game formats. These two were on pace for a top scoring fight in their first battle and I think we have a simple 100+ between the both of them here. I think that the winner of this struggle will score over 100 points themselves and then we add all of the sig strikes and other points from the failure 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 illegal and the fight is stopped short….
GPP drama of the week — Hakeem Dawodu ($9,400)
I believe that this matchup was put up for Dawodu a triumph. I also believe Islam Makhachev, who is $200 more, will probably be quite highly owned and this may be a good pivot him off to distinguish your LU a little bit. I do think Dawodu will obtain some good ownership as well but I think he is a good GPP play this week. I feel the most probable outcome in this fight is Dawodu becoming a (T)KO win. He must pay his off $9.4k salary if that is the situation, particularly if it is early. He’s a very solid striker and we did not get to find out that in his UFC debut at which he had been upset very early in the fight. This is the perfect fit for him to showcase his striking and why there was a lot of hype behind him moving to his introduction. I think we can see a 1st round KO here which makes Hakeem Dawodu my GPP play of the week.
Underdog drama of this week — Ion Cutelaba ($7,600)
The most important reason Cutelaba is my underdog drama of the week is because there’s no way he isn’t scoring at least 10x if he can get the win. He’s got big power and may get a 1st round KO score and here over 100 DK points. If he does that with his cheap salary of $7.6k he’ll certainly be in the winning lineup. This is a good fight to target both sides but points per wages wise, Cutelaba has among the ceilings on the card. I do not see this battle going to decision and the winner must score highly. I think if you’re making multiple lineups this weekend you must definitely have exposure to Cutelaba.
Fade of this week — Katlyn Chookagian ($8,700)
I am fading a couple of fighters this week , but the person I never considered using was Katlyn Chookagian. It is not that I do not believe she could win, because she for sure could. However, I do not see her paying off an $8.7k DK salary with a triumph. I think we would need a finish from her in this fight to receive 10x that salary and I believe that’s very unlikely to happen. The most Chookagian has ever scored in a UFC fight so far in her profession is 83 DK points. That would not be sufficient here to put her at the winning lineup at her $8.7k price tag. I think if you’re earning 20 or less lineups that Saturday you may safely fade Chookagian and when she gets a triumph it shouldn’t hurt much.
