There’s a good deal of cash to be won this week DraftKings including a top prize of $30k from the main tournament. DK also has lots of Qualifier contests available this week, in which the last event will pay $50k into 1st for those who did qualify to perform inside. I’ll be pursuing those as well since we’ve never had a $50k 1st place prize and I want it. I do think we’ve got a enjoyable card that Saturday and that I am all set to enter this 3-week break with a winning night at UFC 227. Here are a few plays I enjoy this weekend together with my fade of this week.
Cash Game play of the week — Demetrious Johnson ($9,400)
Demetrious Johnson is the most powerful play in most DFS MMA and he’s the maximum ceiling as well. DJ is your P4P best fight on earth (not counting Jon Jones) and he has already beat Cejudo once before. This is the very first person I’m plugging in my cash LU this week and I suggest you do the same. DJ is practically guaranteed to score at least 100-points at a triumph, and he has a -550 gambling line saying he should find the win again here. Play it safe and use DJ in cash. It’s possible to stack this battle as well, but I think DJ is essential.
GPP drama of the week — Thiago Santos ($9,200)
This is a great fight to goal this week because it most likely won’t go to a choice. Holland just fought the Contender Series a few weeks back and did not get a contract. But today he’s on the PPV against one of the scariest strikers in the branch. The ITD lineup for Santos is now -210 and the under 1.5 rounds gambling line is -160. This tells me Vegas believes this fight ends early and Santos is the guy which should pick up the finish. At $9.2k, he readily pays that cost off at a 1st round win and I think he has a solid shot at doing just that. I don’t care for him in cash game formats though because both guys have quite lower floors, so this is a GPP just play for me personally.
Underdog play of this week — Brett Johns ($7,400)
I think everybody is composing Brett Johns following his loss to Aljo Sterling and that is exactly why he’s 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’re worried about him getting caught in a guillotine when he shoots for takedowns, but if he can avoid that I believe he can win this battle and 10x his salary with a triumph. I really don’t think Johns will want to hit with Munhoz to get 15-minutes so I do believe he will be shooting takedowns. Those takedowns could get him submitted, or else they may get him a triumph over the scorecards. However, this makes him a boom or bust play and that is why he is a good underdog to pick in GPPs this past week.
Fade of this week — Danielle Taylor ($7,500)
Even at an affordable $7.5k on DraftKings, Taylor will still need a end to cover that price label off with her fashion. She’s the worst style possible for scoring DraftKings stage and even if she’s a win here she could wind up scoring significantly less than several losers on the card. Taylor will be the least owned fighter in GPPs this week, so in the event that you would like to spend your money on a 115 pound woman with a”punchers chance” of winning you a GPP, then you will be quite contrarian taking that route. 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’d still full fade Taylor here.
