MMA DFS UFC Fight Night: Figueiredo vs. Benavidez
This fight is currently at a -210 to go to a decision this weekend. I don’t like that at all. If that happens this fight could be a dud and be very low scoring. I’m most likely going to fade this and if not I’ll have very little exposure to either fighters. Currently Arman has a +475 ITD so unless he accidentally runs into a KO here, I don’t see he has a snowball’s chance in hell to win this.
Winner – Davi Ramos
This fight could be so close and hard to figure out. I do believe Gordon will come out on top because he’s just a better all around fighter but he does come into this as the slight underdog at +145. This is 100% a GPP play on either fighter as I just can’t get a feel for this as a cash play this weekend.
Winner – Malcolm Gordon
Montel Jackson is a top play for me this weekend. Comes in as a moderate favorite at -240 and has scored over 90 FP in his 3 UFC wins so far which bodes very well. Jackson most likely ends up as a winner and on the winning GPP lineup as well.
Winner – Montel Jackson
I like Duffy to win this fight. He is super high priced on both sites so we need to see a massive/early T(KO) out of him to be worth the price. The only way Alvarez will win is to find himself a random KO. I can’t trust Alvarez in cash so he could be an optimal GPP play.
Winner – Joe Duffy
Dawson’s price is massive on both DK and FD. I expect his ownership to be pretty high though so he might be a cash play because if you play in GPPs he could be highly owned but he might be on the optimal lineup. If you want to pivot off the field and take Narimani as an underdog and if he goes for a KO you would have a HUGE advantage. I’m going out on a limb with Nad tonight.
Winner – Grant Dawson
I’m all in on Dolidze tonight. He’s only a slight favorite but his price is up there on both sites. I like him more on DK though due to the pricing/scoring way DraftKings works. The one thing is he doesn’t throw a ton of volume so it will rely on him getting that KO.
On the other side, Ibragimov does throw a ton punches and his price is so far down he could take this off and be a fantastic GPP play. I’m looking at Ibragimov as GPP but he will have to run into a win with this one. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll have exposure to both fighters though.
Winner – Roman Dolidze
