Draftkings Daily Fantasy MMA: UFC Fight Night on FOX: Machida vs. Rockhold

After taking last weekends card off, I’m back with some Daily Fantasy MMA advice for Draftkings. Since UFC Fight Night: Cro Cop vs. Gonzaga was only on fight pass and had another early morning start time, I figured many wouldn’t play. I still played some and used the same strategy I had been using in past articles, and had a pretty successful night. The pricing was very nice last week as well, which made making lineups a bit easier. Enough talking about last week, lets get onto some fighters you should focus on for Draftkings contests for UFC Fight Night On Fox: Machida vs. Rockhold.

As always we start by looking at who Vegas thinks has the best shot at a victory. There are only three large favorites in this event. Those being Jacare Souza ($11,900), Corey Anderson ($11,000) and Aljamain Sterling ($10,900). There will be no discounts on huge favorites for this week, so these will be the guys to pay up for.

There is a nice number of mid priced (10k range) favorites which include Page Vanzant ($10,100), Patrick Cummins ($10,000), Cub Swanson ($10,300) and Luke Rockhold ($10,200). While these fighters are favorites, its not by much.

And lastly lets look to the cheaper priced underdogs. As always you pretty much have to take one or two fighters in this category. I think Lyoto Machida ( $9,500), Max Holloway ($9,100), and Jim Miller ($8,700) all have a decent shot at getting a win.

Another thing I started doing again is running multiple lineups. It seems like every time i do this I at worst break even. I also enter each lineup into a cash game and a gpp, so if one doesn’t hit, the others will cover the losses. So you may look to use this strategy and see if it works for you.
