Spooky Express Top Tier Draftkings Play
Vicente Luque $9,000
Our top tier play this week on Draftkings will be Vicente Luque at $9,000. There are truly some great options at this price range but you have to look at the potential for large point outcomes. I'm going with Luque mainly because I think he will finish Perry but only after he gets into a brief striking battle with the welterweight.
Luque has been one of the most reliable DFS fighters in history of the game, scoring 96 points or more in 9 of his last 10 fights in the UFC. Luque has a majore grappling advantage in this fight and should be able to submit Perry, who struggles like a fish out of water on the ground.
Spooky Express Mid Tier Draftkings Play
Geraldo De Freitas $8,300
Our top mid tier play this week on Draftkings will be Geraldo De Freitas at $8,300. When I first was looking at this card, I expect De Freitas would be one of the $9k fighters but seeing him at $8300 was a pleasant surprise. In his one and only UFC Fight, he ended up with 128 DFS Points against Felipe Corales.
He ended up with 6 takedowns, 2 reversals and advanced his position 11 times. De Freitas is my pick to get the win here and I expect he will win this time by submission. Gutierrez is a black belt in BJJ but not on the same level as Freitas. I think he gets us 90-100 points, which is a great value at this price.
Spooky Express Low Tier Draftkings Play
Gilbert Burns $7,400
Our low tier option this week will be Gilbert Burns at $7400. Burns has won back-to-back fights and scored over 100 points in each. Burns finished Mike Davis at UFC on ESPN+8 by 2nd round submission to earn him 122 DFS points and also beat Olivier Aubin-Mercier by Unanimous Decision, where he scored 105 DFS points with 3 takedowns and 1 knockdown.
Burns will get you many points because of his superior grappling skills. He will get points for advancing, takedowns, has the power to gather points with knockdowns and is coming in on short notice to face Alexey Kunchenko, who hasn't really impressed me in his 2 UFC Fights. Burns for the win and a 100 DFS point outcome!!!
