How To Play Draftkings MMA DFS
Simply because its only two people fighting each other and it can go either way with a punch or kick. So if you spent 3 hours researching for this fighter and they get knocked out by a head kick in the first round. You’ve just wasted a lot of unnecessary time and depending on how much you bet that night money as well.
So I’m not going to push research down your throat on this like I usually do with other sports. For MMA it’s best to know your fighters if you know your fighter and their opponent it’ll help you out a lot.
When playing MMA fantasy sports you can pretty much eyeball whos going to do what for the most part. Looking at their game log and record on Draftkings will help you out even more.
Pricing is big in MMA. Unlike with other sports in DFS the higher price is generally the route to go when playing MMA. At least that’s how it is for me. When I try to go for value to save money I usually lose badly. But when I stuff as many high priced guys with good records I cash at least 65% of the time.
