    Yep. When the cheapest fighter is a +175 … I’d say we’ve got some live dogs. Going to be a tough one. Could have 6 win lineups that don’t even cash.

    Help me understand this as I am new of UFC.

    With a slew of close fights that could go either way, would that not put a premium on wins? I would think in a situation like this, 6 win lineups would be less common than on a slate with a bunch of heavy favorites.

    Thanks dude

    I could be way off on this from a proper logic (and/or mathematical) perspective… but my take is there will be so many dogs that win and ownership will be so balanced, there will be a lot of lineups from the field that will have 6 right (or more than normal).

    You could play 3 sub 8k fighters that win… and there are 3 different sub-8k winners that score that much better. Like on 249, you HAD to have Oleinik and Gaethje… I think they’re the only dogs that won. There (could be) a lot of dogs that win and it’s going to be important that you have the ones that score.

    Like I said though… I could be way off on this.

    This is terrible news for me lol I’m going to be doing really well if I hit 5 winners.

    So the cheapest fighter is now facing a late replacement… are we in free square territory? DK doesn’t ever change salaries once they’re out… so maybe both at 7k?

    Wasn’t there a milly maker?

    I thought so too, but it’s for the 6/6 card.

    Yep, both at $7.0K. I don’t play much MMA DFS, but that definitely looks like a free square.

    Anybody actually taped this Irwin R(ivera) Schyster?

    Hope I get some time tonight.

    I have no idea on this card, so it’s time to shine

  • futoo

    Vera looked a little soft. Casey didn’t look like she was feeling very good

  • NewMike

    Miguel Baeza’s nickname is Caramel Thunder, if that helps anyone

  • futoo

    Does holland weighing in at 182 hurt him? might be giving up 20 lbs by the fight

    I’ve locked him in and this is a big reason why.

    Yeah, I’m not sure what his deal is… this has happened before too, where he weighs light.

    I’m wondering on this card if the contrarian play is fade the Giga fight? He’s basically gone from like 15% owned to 70%…. and since he’s kind of a slow-paced kickboxer type that could win dominantly and score 60… could easily miss the winning lineup with a 7k winner. I don’t mean fade… just temper your exposure.
