We’re just 4 days away from UFC 184 where Ronda Rousey will defend her women’s bantamweight title for the 5th time against Cat Zingano. We already posted our free betting tip for the event so it’s time to break down the Draft Kings fantasy action. Remember, you can get our full betting tips exclusively from CapperTek where our verified track record is also broken down. Since CapperTek has only been verifying our track record since the start of 2015, we also have our full track record on our site.
Must Have Favourites
1. Ronda Rousey – 103.4…that’s the number of points Rousey has averaged for fantasy teams (assuming Draft Kings was actually around) since she began fighting for the UFC. Her salary is $13,500, but find a way to fit her on most of your teams. What we’ve seen in the past is a score between 300 and 400 is all that’s required to win money in most tournaments. Rousey should win convincingly against Cat Zingano so she’s well worth her big salary.
2. Tony Ferguson – As described in our free betting tip where we have Ferguson as a parlay leg, we think he should have the speed advantage and also be able to avoid Tibau’s takedown/grinding offense. He should also have a pretty big advantage on the feet and with his cardio so we see him getting a late stoppage. At a price of $11,400, he’s well worth having on several of your fantasy teams.
1. Tim Means – The obvious first choice as Means has actually moved to a favourite at most sportsbooks. His salary of $9,900 barely keeps him in the category of underdog, but we think he’s the more likely winner against Dhiego Lima. There’s some uncertainty here so don’t put him on all your fantasy teams.
2. Raquel Pennington – Need some salary relief? We think Pennington goes to decision with Holly Holm a lot of the time. Because of this, she’s bound to pick up 15-30 points for your team and she provides some good salary relief at just $6,400. If by some fluke she manages to come away with the victory, you’re probably winning your tourney as the rest of your team should be solid.
3. Roman Salazar – At worst Salazar should survive to a decision. At best, he’ll come away with the win against Norifumi Yamamoto. We think he’s badly underrated in this spot with a salary of just $7,600.
