UFC 245 Daily Fantasy Picks

You would be forgiven if you saw this card and though that it most by the New Years card. And while we are only a few weeks from the start of 2020, the UFC decided to host their big end-of-year blowout a few weeks early.

Not only does this card have three title fights (and interesting ones at that), but the undercard is also incredibly stacked. I mean, Matt Brown is the televised undercard opener…

I use DraftKings for my UFC daily fantasy fix, so if you don’t have an account you can sign up here (and get a 50% bonus on your initial deposit). Also, you can check out the scoring criteria here. Now let’s get down to business.

Value Picks

  • Germaine de Randamie ($7,000) has become somewhat of a joke since her “title reign”, but she does pose an interesting test to Amanda Nunes. Randamie is one of the better strikers in the devision, and she has shown a good ability to keep fights standing. In a pick ’em, I am still going with Nunes, but Randamie’s price makes her an interesting value pick.
  • Mike Perry ($7,100) is the clear underdog against Geoff Neal, but on a card without too many obvious values, Perry’s knockout power, toughness, and low price-tag make him a reasonable roster.

Avoid

  • Ketlen Vieira ($8,800) has failed to top 87 DFS points in her last four victories, and faces a tough opponent in Irene Aldana this weekend. Sure, her floor is high, but her ceiling is low, which isn’t great at that price.
  • Ian Heinisch ($8,400) also has a very low DFS ceiling. His wins are slow and grinding affairs without the action necessary to rack up DFS points. You can use that cap space elsewhere.
