This weekend we’ve got the largest contest we have ever observed for DraftKings MMA. We have a $10 entrance competition with $300,000 in total prizes, and $100,000 of the to 1st place. I never believed we would see a 6-figure 1st place prize for MMA but that I was wrong and I can not wait to chase it. Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov is going to be the biggest fight in UFC history and DraftKings simply made it even bigger for us DFS players. We’re down to 12-fights so that we could observe a number of ties for this 1st place prize, therefore strive to be different with your lineups someplace, or leave wages on the dining table to differ in that manner. With that said, here are a few plays I enjoy this weekend along with my fade of the week: Cash Game play of the week — Vicente Luque ($9,400) Luque is the”safest” play on the card by a good margin at his -900 betting line. I enjoy plugging in these high odds guys in money so that I can lock a win in there and worry about locating 3 other wins out of my 5 other spots. We usually only need 4 wins in cash games to beat the cash line, so that’s what I shoot for in these 50/50 or double up games. Luque has been quite remarkable in his UFC conduct and he has beat some pretty big names. On paper, this is only one of the simplest matches yet. He also has large time upside with his completing possible. He has an ITD line of -270, therefore that I believe we could have 100+ points in this win. He is a good play in most formats, but he is going to be chalky in tournaments, so that’s why he’s my cash play of this week instead. GPP play of the week — Alexander Volkov ($8,700) Heavyweights are always good to target in GPPs since it only takes 1 shot with a lot of those guys. I believe this is a great matchup for Volkov and he is priced at $8.7k this week. If he can get a 1st round KO at the price, he’ll probably be on the winning LU. Same goes for Lewis, so he’s a good GPP play too. However, my pick to win is going to be Volkov and that I enjoy his price. I think a few guys priced above him this week will be much higher owned, so we could get a heavyweight favorite at lower possession here. Fight Doesn’t Go To Decision is currently lined at -190, so this is a good GPP fight to aim over all. If you enjoy the Black Beast to get the W, then he’s a good fighter to throw on your GPP LUs. Underdog play of this week — Tony Martin ($7,400) Here really is the best odds value on the card. Presently, Laflare is lined at -135 and Tony Martin is lined at +115. But on DraftKings Laflare is priced $1,400 higher than Martin. I enjoy searching online worth like that which alone puts Martin in play in most formats. Martin also has got the much better odds to finish this battle ITD, so that’s another and with him. I like the flooring for Martin in money games also since Laflare isn’t very likely to finish if he wins. So, at $7.4k, we can afford a reduction from Martin and take the things he can rack up in 15-minutes. Fade of this week — Sergio Pettis ($8,600) Sergio Pettis could get the win . But he’s going to have to acquire a end to pay off his $8.6k price tag. Sergio will not be heading for almost any takedowns in this battle, and he doesn’t strike at a high enough speed for him to get 10x of the $8.6k. Sergio will be the better fighter on the toes, but when he does not get a finish then he probably only scores 60-70 points at a win. Those low scores don’t cut it at $8.6k. There are just better plays points per dollar and those are the guys I will be targeting. Sergio is a solid fade if you are making 20 or less lineups this weekend.
