We have an incredible DraftKings slate to look through! First, before we get into the plays, let's ensure we lock in the event details so we don't miss out on any action. This event occurs Saturday, July 22nd, 2023, at O2 Arena in London, England. The prelims will kick things off at 12pm Eastern and the main card at 3 pm Eastern. Here are the core plays that I plan to use with my DraftKings lineups;
Joel Alvarez vs. Marc Diakiese
Home fight for Marc who is coming off a loss last fight. Joel is coming off a loss after he was on a winning streak where he is the slight favorite. Marc has leg kicks and the striking is his weapon in the cage. The grappling is there for him though where the takedowns can work for him. Joel has grappling for days but he needs to shoot for him. The boxing has worked for Joel in the meantime. The layoff for Joel may be in his favor in this fight for him to work on his skills on the grappling end. I am liking Joel to come in prepared for this fight coming in at the DraftKings price tag of $9,000.
Paul Craig vs. Andre Muniz
Muniz is the slight favorite and is coming off a submission loss. Craig is coming off of two losses where the last one he was finished. This is going to be a grappling affair. Muniz is nice on the feet with the power and will shoot for the takedowns. The last performance for Muniz was weird to me. Craig is tough on the feet and the grappling shows up for him. This is going to be a back and forth fight. I am liking Craig here especially at the DraftKings price tag of $6,900 as a value.
Mick Parkin vs. Jamal Pogues
Parkin is coming off of a win on DWCS and this is a home fight for him. Pogues is coming off his UFC debut win. Pogues is the slight favorite in this fight. Parkin is a big fighter and this is a big boy fight. Parkin has nice striking and he will push the grappling to earn control time. Pogues pushes the striking and he will shoot for the takedown also a ton. This is a back-and-forth fight overall. I am liking the price tag on Parkin on DraftKings of $7,300.
Tom Aspinall vs. Marcin Tybura
The main event is a big boy fight! This fight is centered around Aspinall to win overall. Home fight for Aspinall and this is a big boy fight! Aspinall is the huge favorite despite coming off a loss where he needed surgery. Tybura is coming off two wins. Aspinall is coming off an injury and what version will we get of him after a year? Aspinall has great powerful striking with leg kicks. The takedown offense is a high clip for him also. The speed will be in Aspinall's favor by far. Tybura is a ground-and-pound fighter overall. I am liking Aspinall in all formats to win this fight at the DraftKings price tag of $9,700.
