UFC 267: Blachowicz vs. Teixeira | UFC DFS Picks
Khamzat Chimaev | DraftKings: $9,500, FanDuel: $23
Chimaev has excelled in his first three UFC fights, with three finishes and only absorbing two strikes in those fights. He is an elite wrestler, a powerful striker and will hunt the finish early. Chimaev’s right hand is pure power and will put his opponents lights out at the blink of an eye. For DFS, Chimaev is playable in all formats. Awesemo’s projections give him 83% win odd with a 61% chance for a knockout.
Andre Petroski | DraftKings: $8,600, FanDuel: $18
Petroski is coming into this matchup off a third-round knockout win over Micheal Gilmore in August. He will be giving up three inches in height but also will have a one-inch reach advantage. Petroski will have a huge wrestling advantage, however. This fight should be an absolute clinic on the mat, with Petroski locking up the third submission of his career. For DFS, Petroski is a GPP play only. Awesemo’s projections give Petroski 68% win odds.
Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos | DraftKings: $8,500, FanDuel: $17
Dos Santos will be making his first appearance of the year after being sidelined after knee surgery. He has nasty kickboxing, elite Brazilian jiu-jitsu and extremely dangerous finishing ability. Dos Santos will be facing Benoit Saint-Denis making his UFC debut, who loves to take the fight to the ground. However, keeping dos Santos on the ground will be extremely difficult. For DFS, dos Santos is a strong mid-range play due to his finishing instinct. Awesemo’s projections give dos Santos 67% win odds and a 42% chance for a knockout.
Ricardo Ramos | DraftKings: $7,900, FanDuel: $13
Ramos will be fighting Zubaira Tukhugov. It was initially scheduled to take place in March at UFC Fight Night. However, Tukhugov pulled out a week before the fight because of undisclosed reasons. Ramos will have a four-inch reach advantage over Tukhugov, which he will use to stay away from Tukhugov’s wrestling. He has seven wins via submission and three wins via knockout. For DFS, Ramos’ cardio and skill should carry him to a solid performance. Awesemo’s projections give dos Santos 40% win odds.
