Must Have Favourites
1. Travis Browne – In general, when making Draft Kings choices, heavier is better. Travis Browne is no exception. He takes on an aging Andrei Arlovski and the odds are Browne will be able to find Arlovski’s chin, knocking him out. The end likely comes early on in the fight. We are fairly confident in Browne and at $11,300, it still leaves you room for some other decent favourites.
2. Donald Cerrone – We are probably getting a better price than we should on Cerrone for his fight against John Makdessi on the back of Makdessi’s most recent TKO win over Shane Campbell a couple weeks ago. We are very confident in Cerrone and even have him as a parlay leg in our free betting tip. At $11,200 and with a great shot at getting a finish, you’ll want Cerrone on most of your Draft Kings teams.
1. Anthony Johnson – In the only close fight (according to the betting public) on the card on Saturday, Anthony Johnson and Daniel Cormier will fight for the UFC light heavyweight title which was vacated by the UFC when Jon Jones had a hit and run incident. Rumble Jonhson has won 13 of his 19 wins via TKO and we think he has a decent shot to knockout Daniel Cormier as well. At $9,400, we’d recommend having Johnson on about half of your Draft Kings teams.
2. John Moraga – Moraga’s salary is a pretty unbelievable $7,700. Even if he can only survive to a decision (the most likely outcome), he should still earn you 30-50 points against Joseph Benavidez. If he happens to be able to lock up a choke and defeat his Alpha Male opponent, don’t be all that surprised. While we won’t be betting Moraga, the value at Draft Kings is very high. Add Moraga and look to make it a team with 3 favourites.
