This week, Draftkings is full of some great GPP tournaments and cash games for UFC Fight Night 99 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Pricing is pretty tough for this event as the most expensive fighter is $9600 and the least expensive fighter is $6600. We have 3 tier plays for you and a fight we are recommending you totally avoid. Best of luck this week!
Spooky Express Top Tier Draftkings Play
Abdul Razak Alhassan $9,400
Our top tier play this week for Draftkings is without a doubt Abdul Razak Alhassan. Alhassan is also one of our top plays in our handicapping article, make sure you check that out. Alhassan is 6-0 with all 6 wins coming by 1st round KO. This guy is NO joke when it comes to knock out power! I look for this fight to end early in the first round. Another good option is he will be low owned as people will read that he is teammates with Conor McGregor and will put him on their team simply for that fact, making his ownership lower than what it should be.
Spooky Express Mid Tier Draftkings Play
Mark Godbeer $8,000
Our mid tier play this week for UFC 99 is Mark Godbeer. He is $8,000, which will put him on the lower end of the tier and has a 100% finish rate. In his last 3 fights, he is got 2 second round T/KO's and 1 fight round T/KO. He has one punch knock out power and will be taking on Justin Ledet who I just wasn't impressed with in his UFC debut. (I also gave out Godbeer on my handicapping article). I think Godbeer will continue his winning streak and finish this fight in the late 2nd round.
Spooky Express Low Tier Draftkings Play
Kwan Ho Kwak $7,500
Our low tier option is a fighter making his UFC debut, Kwan Ho Kwak. He will be taking on fellow UFC newcomer Brett Johns. Both of these fighters are undefeated. Kwak is 9-0 with 6 wins by knockout. I think for that value you are getting for a fighter who has shown knock out power, this is a steal.
Spooky Express Fight to Avoid
Amanda Cooper $8,600 vs. Anna Elmrose $7,600
At initial appearance of these two ladies, you will notice that they both have 100% finish rates, which will have the entire world of casual fans picking on of these two and increasing their ownership. What those same people won't consider is the caliber of opponent they have both faced and recent history. In Amanda Cooper's last 2 “official” fights, she has lost to Tatiana Suarez by 1st round submission(TUF Finale) and Aspen Ladd by 2nd round submission. It should be noted that she also has 3 exhibition fights on The Ultimate Fighter.
Anna Elmrose lost her last fight vs Germaine De Ramdamie by KO in the 1st round. I think both of these ladies will enter with a very cautious game plan to avoid the other and avoid a loss. Whoever loses this fight will most likely receive a pink slip along with the loss. Just can't see many points being scored from either and for the price point of $8600 and $7600, it just isn't beneficial to play either. This is what I will be AVOIDING this fight all together!
