Another weekend of UFC action means another chance at riches courtesy of DraftKings MMA. The following lineups are guaranteed to earn money, the only question is how much.
I love tournaments because they allow me to fantasize about having enough money to fire J-Man and hire a B-Side at WBB rather than a D-Side. The problem with tourneys is a good lineup is not enough to win. Big money payouts attract huge numbers of participants. A line up must be extraordinary to win. With that said, these are the lineups to take a few high risk, high reward, fighters in.
Burgos, Good, Kennedy, and Wade are all fairly heavy favorites that should be able to cash in on points from a victory. Vera is a guy I can see pulling off an upset against overrated Brian Kelleher and came at a tremendous value if he does so. Lastly, I have been very vocal about how confident I am in Chris Weidman winning this fight. On top of that, I predict a stoppage victory from the GOAT killer.
Head to Head Lineup
Head to Head victories pay for my tournament aspirations. Sometimes I feel it is unfair to match up someone with my superpowers versus a mere mortal, but I don’t make the rules I just play by them. In a head to head matchup, I try to minimize risk knowing a decent performance with a solid number of wins will likely bring home the cake.
Burgos (-580), Johnson (-245), LaFlare (-175), and Sherman (-240) are all fairly heavy favorite a.k.a. safe plays. Even in a loss, I cannot see any world that Burgos, Johnson, and LaFlare don’t go the distance in. I am very high on WBB’s BFFL Chase Sherman, but any Heavyweight bout has knockout potential. Still, I am very confident he gets the job done. Cummins is a slight dog who I like for the upset as well as many point scoring takedowns and transitions. Lastly, just as in my tournament lineup, Vera is an economically sound option that offers tremendous upside.
