LET’S GET READY TO RUUUMMMBBLLEE!!!
Boys and Girls, MMA is BACK and we couldn’t be anymore excited for this weekend as we have a full slate of great match-ups!!
UFC 250 will take place at the brand new UFC Apex facility inside a 25-foot Octagon that’s five feet smaller than the standard 30-foot cage and hopefully this means more hitting and less dancing.
The 12-bout UFC 250 card is scheduled to begin with prelims at 7 p.m. ET and the main card beginning at 10 p.m. Now let’s get into the Odds for the slate and our CORE picks!!
- Amanda Nunes vs. Felicia Spencer
- Raphael Assuncao vs. Cody Garbrandt
- Aljamain Sterling vs. Cory Sandhagen
- Sean O’Malley vs. Eddie Wineland
- Neil Magny vs. Anthony Rocco Martin
- Chase Hooper vs. Alex Caceres
- Ian Heinisch vs. Gerald Meerschaert
- Cody Stamann vs. Brian Kelleher
- Charles Byrd vs. Maki Pitolo
- Jussier Formiga vs. Alex Perez
- Alonzo Menifield vs. Devin Clark
- Evan Dunham vs. Herbert Burns
Now I know you may think this is the area where we breakdown every fighter and tell you their life story and all about their last 5 fights and all that other info, Buuuuuutttttt NO!! Sorry, we don’t need to fluff it up and leave you with 10 minutes worth of garbage to read to fill our page, instead we are going to give you our #1 lock of the night and then you are free to grab our Core Picks below!
Ok, so our #1 lock for this slate as far as DFS is concerned is going to be Aljamain Sterling. Fans can expect an exciting scrap on Saturday night between Sterling and Cory Sandhagen as both fighters are fast in their hand movements as well as on the ground. Sterling lands 4.85 significant strikes per minute. He’s also topped out at 101 and 174 strikes landed in his two most recent bouts. Grappling may play a key role in the fight as well, as Sterling land 1.91 takedowns per 15 minutes and Sandhagen lands 1.24. Both are outstanding submission grapplers, Sterling being a black belt and Sandhagen a brown belt. With being a slight underdog on this card according to Vegas for whatever reason, I think he is the perfect GPP play as ownership should be a little lower and I think Sterling can rack up a ton of points with significant strikes, advances and a few takedowns. Lock Sterling in as your first pick!!
Annnnddddd NOW! The moment you have been waiting for….
