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 of the action. This event occurs Saturday, May 13th, 2023, at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. The prelims will kick things off at 11:30 am Eastern and the main card at 3 pm Eastern. Here are the core plays that I plan to use with my DraftKings lineups;
Bryan Battle vs. Gabe Green
This fight is a nice fight overall. Battle will be here in his hometown which I like seeing from him. Green will push the pace and Battle will try to combat that. Battle is good on the feet and will want to bounce back in this fight off a loss. Green has knockout power and is good on the submission side. I am thinking this is a close fight. I am liking Battle to bounce back and come back in a huge way. The price tag on Battle to me is just right on DraftKings coming in at $7,900.
Ihor Potieria vs. Carlos Ulberg
What a banger! Ulberg is a on winning streak and looks to be the massive favorite. Ihor is coming off a win also. This is going to be a striking battle overall. Ulberg is a kickboxer and is great on the feet. Ulberg can pinpoint his output and I am liking him on the feet to handle this fight. Ulberg just needs to avoid the knockout power of Ihor. I am all over Ulberg though with his skill base. The knockout potential Ulberg brings is fantastic and at $9,300 on DraftKings is a way to be different.
Tim Means vs. Alex Morono
This has the makings to be a fun fight to watch without a doubt. Means is a dog in the UFC meaning he always will step up to a fight. Means is coming off two losses and is the slight underdog. Morono is coming off a knockout loss and looking to bounce back here in the win column. Means is a striker and has decent takedowns on the feet. Means will push the pace and is aggressive in the cage. Morono is good in all formats in the cage. Morono is a tough customer but is coming off a knockout loss. Means is no pushover in this fight and I think he can keep this fight closer than the odds appear. At $7,400 on DraftKings, I like Means to pay off the price tag.
Jairzinho Rozenstruik vs. Jailton Almeida
The Main Event! Almeida is a massive favorite in this fight to handle it with ease. Almeida is on a winning streak and has been a monster. Rozenstruik found a quick knockout win last fight which was amazing for him to win that fight. Rozenstruik is mainly a striker in which he will not shoot for takedowns. Almeida will shoot for the takedowns and look for a submission. If Almeida gets a submission win rather quickly, the price tag on DraftKings will be worth it at $9,600.
