UFC On ESPN+ 23 in Busan: DraftKings and Betting Breakdown

This card is a cruel follow-up to the fireworks of UFC 245. It starts at 2 a.m. EST and takes place in Busan, South Korea. There’s zero star power on the card and is the lowest level even the promotion offers. We do have more fights than normal to take more stances on and I think there are some very live dogs with real scoring ceilings to attack on this one. Let’s get to the fights. A reminder of the fight classifications for tournaments: I will take each fight and assign it to one of five categories for tournament deployment…....

UFC 245: DraftKings and Betting Breakdown

After all the lead up to 244, and the card being a bit of a letdown, it’s safe to say this is actually the card of the year. We have three title fights and a full 13 fights for our viewing pleasure. There is also a special MME contest on DraftKings with a top prize of $50,000, and a boost in the size and top prize of the Mini-Max as well. I know I have some cash thoughts early in the week, as this card is fairly self-explanatory with the three five-round fights scheduled. Stacking the two men’s title fights

UFC On ESPN 7 in DC: DraftKings and Betting Breakdown

I hope everyone enjoyed the break, but we are back. We get what’s best described as a tune-up card leading up to next week’s utter monster PPV card. There’s not a single fight that’s truly a draw on this card, perhaps save for seeing if there’s a legitimate heavyweight contender in Jair. We get a few fighters coming back after being KO’d in their last fight, and we will have to sort which ones are the bounceback candidates. A reminder of the fight classifications for tournaments: I will take each fight and assign it to one of five categories for

UFC on ESPN+22 in Sao Paolo: DraftKings and Betting Breakdown

This fight night card is an improvement over last week’s Moscow card, and I think it’s safe to say we will have at least one 100-plus point scorer this week after seeing zero last week. At the time of initial writing, there is no screaming value on betting line versus salary, so we may see very spread ownership, and taking stands in the correct spots will be key in tournaments. This will be clear as there will be plenty of stance fights in the tournament section. I think I’ve got a sound read on this one and looking forward to

UFC On ESPN+ 21 in Moscow: DraftKings and Betting Targets

I do enjoy the morning fight night cards, but more the eastern European ones that give us a start time not in the middle of the night. This one kicks off at 11 a.m. EST and has 13 fights. There may be an advantage to be had on the field in both cash and tournaments this week with an odd diversion from the norm in the main event. The main event is only three rounds, as opposed to the normal five rounds. In the event of a decision, this will work against those who stack the fight in cash, and I

UFC 244: DraftKings and Betting Breakdown

After some weeks of Fight Night cards lacking real star power, we get just a mammoth PPV card that will just be a joy to watch. We have 12 fights and the prelims could legitimately be the top of a Fight Night card. I will be at a buddy’s wedding Thursday through Saturday, meaning I will be offering cash thoughts, picks and bets early this week, so pay close attention to late-breaking news. Let’s get to this fun card. First, a reminder of the new format for tournament deployment: I will take each fight and assign it to one of

UFC on ESPN+20 in Singapore: DraftKings and Betting Breakdown

No need to sugarcoat this one. This card leaves a lot to be desired from a marketability perspective, and with an ugly main event headlining just 11 fights, it also leaves much to be desired from a DFS perspective. The nature of the main event makes cash difficult as there will be hard decisions on whether to fade what seems like bad chalk, and tournaments are likely to see chopping at the top. Three of the 11 fights are at heavyweight, where one shot KO’s and ugly decisions are much more common, making cash lineup construction even more difficult. Unless

UFC on ESPN 6 in Boston: DraftKings and Betting Breakdown

UFC on ESPN 6 in Boston: DraftKings and Betting Breakdown We get a fun card here, buoyed by the rescheduling of the no-contest Mexico City main event as the co-main event. Per Vegas, the most unlikely fight on the card to end inside the distance sits at just +170, and these 13 fights should be entertaining ones to watch. The nature of the main event with a first high-end test for the ascending fighter against the weight class changing big name where there are clear paths for either fighter to produce a tiny score makes cash a dicey proposition for this

UFC on ESPN+19 in Tampa: DraftKings and Betting Breakdown

Well, this is quite a change. We get 14 fights this week, which is quite a welcome change from the 11 and 12 fight cards we’ve had almost exclusively. This is a much better top-to-bottom card compared to the PPV last week, with the main event not being a close call like it was last week. We do, however, have some drama surrounding the main event and the ability/likelihood of Joanna making weight. This is something to monitor as the fight could ultimately be changed, but my gut feeling is that the main event goes on as scheduled. First, a

UFC 243: DraftKings and Betting Breakdown

We had the misfortune of losing a fight, so this PPV card is down to just 11 fights. Be aware this likely leads to chopping at the top of tournaments and lowers the potential ceiling of tournament entries, particularly MME. This card is a massive draw in Australia, but is a run of the mill PPV everywhere else. If you’re selective on the cards you buy, this one is a pass. For cash, the main event is an ugly one. The slow striking style of Adesanya is one that will leave us wanting for points, assuming the fight gets to
