Draftkings Daily Fantasy MMA: UFC 186: Johnson vs. Horiguchi

We are back once again for another round of daily fantasy MMA advice on Draftkings. I did on on last weeks predictions, but spread myself too thin with too many lineups and ended up losing money. I still like entering multiple lineups but I think 2-4 is the sweet spot. This week we look to UFC 186: Johnson vs. Horiguchi to close out the month of April. While many are down on this card, I think there are some pretty decent fights. Maybe they are just looking ahead to next weeks Mayweather v Pacquiao super fight but I digress. Lets look at some MMA fighters that will hopefully bring you home some cash this week.

Top Vegas plays for the week include Demetrius Johnson ($11,400), Thomas Almeida ($11,200),Olivier Aubin-Mercier ($11,000) and Chris Laprise ($10.900). These guys are all pretty sizable favorites, with a couple of them favorites to finish the fight early.

Once again this week we have some great mid priced (10K range) fighters. Fighters to take a look at in this category include Sarah Kauffman ($10,400), Patrick Cote ($10,300), John Makdessi ($10,500) and Michael Bisping ($10,200). All are vegas favorites, but I would be a careful with Makdessi and Bisping, as those lines are MUCH closer, and both fights could really be a pick em.

Time for the bargain bin fighters. Sometimes picking the right one of these fighters will make or break your lineup cashing. Look at CB Dollaway ($9,200), Shane Campbell ($8,900) and Bryan Barberena ($8,500). I feel of all the underdogs these three have the best chance of getting a win. That being said if you need to go with even lower priced fighters than these guys to fill out one last spot, by all means do so. Remember anyone can win on any given day inside the octagon.
