UFC Vegas 36: Brunson  vs. Till | DraftKings + FanDuel MMA DFS Picks

Top-End Picks

Tom Aspinall | DraftKings: $9,000, FanDuel: $22

Aspinall is currently riding a six-fight winning streak. He is coming into this matchup, with an impressive submission victory over Andrei Arlovski in February, which earned performance of the night. Aspinall is averaging 7.43 significant strikes per minute with an accuracy percentage of 66%. He is averaging 3.54 takedowns with an accuracy percentage of 100%. Aspinall comes from a boxing background and has huge knockout power in his hands. For DFS purposes, Aspinall is a good place to start your lineups, even with the $9,000 price tag. He is an absolute finishing machine. Awesemo’s UFC DFS DraftKings and FanDuel Projections give Aspinall 68% win odds with a 54% chance for a knockout.

Mid-Priced Picks

Charles Jourdain | DraftKings: $8,900, FanDuel: $20

Jourdain is coming into this matchup off a third-round knockout win over Marcelo Rojo in March. He lands 4.79 significant strikes per minute with an accuracy percentage of 45%. Julian Erosa absorbs 5.78 significant strikes per minute with a defense of 50%. Jourdain has explosive punching power in his hands combined with durability. For DFS, Erosa’s game style is going to favor Jourdain in this fight. That said, I expect solid upset rostering Jourdain with him getting a late knockout in this fight. Awesemo’s UFC DFS projections give 63% win odds with a 46% chance for a knockout.

Marc-Andre Barriault | DraftKings: $8,400, FanDuel: $19

Barriault is coming into this matchup off a knockout win over Abu Azaitar in March, which ended a four-fight losing streak. He will be looking to keep that momentum going against Dalcha Lungiambula tonight. Barriault’s record in the UFC is 12-4 and out of those 12 wins, nine have come via knockout. He lands 5.36 significant strikes per minute with an accuracy percentage of 48%. For DFS, this is certainly no easy match for Barriault, but I expect with Barriault durability and solid output he should score well even in a decision victory. Awesemo’s UFC DFS projections give 60% win odds with a 36% chance for a knockout.

Value Picks

Derrick Brunson | DraftKings: $7,400, FanDuel: $15

Brunson is coming into this matchup riding a four-fight winning streak, three coming via decision and one via knockout. He lands 3.46 significant strikes per minute with an accuracy percentage of 47%. Brunson is a three-time Division II All-American wrestler and looked unstopped right out of the gate, racking up seven wins in his first eight fights. However, Brunson’s road has been long and hard, losing via knockout to the likes of Robert Whittaker and Israel Adesanya. For DFS, Brunson will be looking to keep his momentum going and at $7,400 could easily be optimal with a knockout victory over Darren Till. Awesemo’s UFC DFS projections give 39% win odds.
