There is a good deal of cash to be obtained this week on DraftKings including a top prize of $25k in the tournament. DK also has lots of Qualifier contests available this week, in which the final event will pay $50k into 1st if you did qualify to perform inside. I’ll be chasing those as well since we’ve not ever had a $50k 1st place prize and I need it. We did have one struggle fall off but we still have a 13-fight card. This is a great card to build your bankroll to get the first Sunday of NFL so you can chase that $1M.
Money Game play of this week — Zabit Magomedsharipov ($9,400)
Zabit will be super chalky in championship. Everybody who’d Shevchenko within their lineup is going to switch to Zabit and he will probably be the most owned fighter on the slate. In cash games we don’t really care about ownership as much and I will be starting my money team with Zabit. I believe he’s the easiest triumph on the card plus he has the maximum ceiling too. I think if you would like to find sneaky and not use Zabit, the GPPs are the place to do that. Lock him and take the triumph. Then you just have to learn about 3 additional wins and you should possess a winning money group.
GPP drama of this week — Alex White ($8,600)
I think Jim Miller is close to the finish of his profession and I am thinking this will be the final time we see him in the UFC. I think he’s going to be handed his 5th loss in a row here and I’m guessing it is going to be through knockout. I think Alex White is going to be too powerful and fast for Jim Miller at this phase in his career and I think he will have the ability to keep this battle on the feet. With everyone paying for Zabit in GPPs, Alex White and some other mid-range favorites might be a fantastic way to go to make your lineups more contrarian and try to get 1st place in a GPP like that. I do like White a fantastic bit in this fight and I think he has 100+ point potential at an $8.6k salary. Because of this, he is my GPP play of this week.
Underdog drama of this week — Diego Sanchez ($7,300)
Diego Sanchez is my underdog drama of the week because I don’t think Craig White is any good. Sanchez may be entirely taken, and if this is the situation he could get KO’d early. But I don’t think Craig White should be -200 against some other UFC fighter. Diego is economical enough where it lets you get a number of the higher favorites you enjoy on your lineup, and I think he will get a choice win here. He will be my pick to win, but it is not a confident pick and I believe he makes to get a much better GPP play than money punt.
Fade of the week — Aljamain Sterling ($8,500)
I’m excited about watching this fight and I’ll be picking Aljo for the win here. My difficulty is that I don’t believe he is very likely to score highly, and perhaps not even 10x his salary. I believe a whole lot of this struggle will happen on the feet and Aljo does not throw at a high enough pace to score well in a striking match. He’ll need to get this fight to the ground several times and rack up some progress points for him to score tremendously. I don’t see this occurring. I think this is going to be a very close fight and I’d rather just pay up for some of the fighters over Sterling. I think we’d be taking a look at a score around 70-75 DK points with an Aljo decision win here.
