UFC Columbus: Blaydes vs. Daukaus | DraftKings & FanDuel MMA DFS Picks

Top-End UFC Picks

Manon Fiorot | DraftKings: $9,400 , FanDuel: $21

Fiorot has started to edge up the rankings by rolling over her opponents. She is a karate specialist and has won six of her eight fights via knockout. Fiorot on the feet, throws lethal combinations with huge power and high output. Her boxing is solid, technical and crisp, with dangerous power in her hands. Her only failure happened in her first pro fight at Cage Warriors 94, where she lost via spilt decision against Leah McCourt. For UFC DFS, Fiorot is a solid play in all for mats due to her finishing abilities. Awesemo’s MMA projections give Fiorot 80% win odds with a 30% chance for a knockout.

Curtis Blaydes | DraftKings: $9,100 , FanDuel: $23

Blaydes’ top game and wrestling is strong, and he should waste no time getting Chris Daukaus to mat in this fight. If Blaydes decides to stand and trade with Daukaus, as he did with Derek Lewis then we could see the same outcome — Blaydes going to sleep. However, I expect Blaydes will use his strong wrestling and ground-and-pound to effetely ware on Daukaus. For MMA DFS, Blaydes is a strong play due his power, although, having some shares of Daukaus isn’t a horrible idea. He does have the speed and power to knock Blaydes out. Awesemo’s UFC projection  give Blaydes 77% win odds with a 51% chance for a knockout.

Blaydes was one of the top fighters popping in the Awesemo MMA DFS optimizer projections today. He’s a top UFC Pick for this slate. Check out all of our free fantasy MMA DFS Picks and projections in our DraftKings UFC DFS Cheat Sheet and FanDuel UFC DFS Cheat Sheet.

Mid-Range UFC Picks

Viacheslav Borshchev | DraftKings: $8,700, FanDuel: $18

Borshchev is making his second UFC appearance and is surrounded by hype coming into this fight against Marc Diakiese. In his last fight, Borshchev finished Dakota Bush with a nasty left hook to the liver. Borshchev is a phenomenal striker, finishing all but one of his fights via knockout. If Borshchev can avoid the early spinning attack of Diakiese and his dangerous leg kicks, and use his crisp boxing to wear down Diakiese, then Borshchev has a clear path for a knockout. For UFC DFS lineups, Borshchev is solid play due to his finishing abilities. Awesemo’s MMA fantasy  projections give 60% win odds with a 43% chance for a knockout.

David Dvorak | DraftKings: $8,400, FanDuel: $17

Dvorak is coming into this matchup as a real prospect, he has not loss a fight since 2012. He was riding a 13-fight winning streak, all of them coming inside the distance, until going the full 15 minutes against Bruno Silva and Jordan Espinosa. Dvorak then returned with a submission victory over Juancamilo Ronderos, returning to his finishing ways. For MMA DFS, Dvorak is a strong play in all formats due to his technical striking and takedown defense to keep this fight standing. I expect Dvorak will control the center of the octagon and determine where this fight takes place. Awesemo’s UFC projections give Dvorak 53% win odds.

Value Picks

Joanne Wood | DraftKings: $7,200, FanDuel: $10

Wood is coming into this fight off a disappointing submission loss against  Taila Santos in November. She competed professionally as a Muay Thai fighter, compiling a 19-2 record. Wood is nasty in the clinch, throwing dangerous elbows and nasty knees to the body. She has compiled a 7-7 record inside the octagon, she is tough as they come and never quits. If Wood’s can get going and blast some of her nasty elbows to slow down Alexa Grasso, then she could edge out a close decision. For MMA DFS, Wood is a risky play, but I expect she will have more output then Grasso. If Wood’s can get clinch position and rain down elbows, she could pay off her $7,200 price tag nicely. Awesemo gives Wood 32% win odds.
