UFC Vegas 65 Picks: Lewis vs. Spivak DFS Plays

Top-End Pick: Jack Della Maddalena | DraftKings: $9,600 , FanDuel: $22

Jack Della Maddalena is primarily a boxer and will throw devastating body shots to slow his opponent down. His grappling is strong, and he should have an advantage on the mat due to his background in judo. Expect Maddalena to bring heavy pressure and stay tight, looking to land his power left and put Danny Roberts’ down. The Top Fighters Tool projects Maddalena as the top fighter on this card, with 79% win odds and a 62% chance for a knockout. Maddalena has the highest odds of being a top-6 fighter as well (40.6%).

Mid-Priced Pick: Miles Johns | DraftKings: $8,400, FanDuel: $18

Miles Johns had rebounded well from his first loss to Mario Bautista, with two consecutive knockouts over Kevin Natividad and Anderson dos Santos. His good fortune did not last inside the Octagon, however, as John Castaneda submitted him in the third round his next time out. Expect Vince Morales’ boxing-heavy approach to give Johns ample opportunity for takedowns. Stokastic’s give Johns 61.9% win odds and a 36.1% chance for a knockout.

Value Pick: Ion Cutelaba | DraftKings: $7,400, FanDuel: $10

This is a tough matchup for Cutelaba, but he should be much more patient and disciplined this time around. His ground game is dangerous, and he will throw nasty ground and pound to finish his opponents. This fight could give Cutelaba his walking papers if he finds himself on the end of another loss. Expect Cutelaba to be patient and not rush takedowns, looking to dictate the pace while finding and early finish. Stokastic’s MMA DFS projections give him 38.8% win odds.

Value Pick: Derrick Lewis | DraftKings: $7,000, FanDuel: $13

Lewis is a dangerous man when he steps inside the Octagon. His powerful right hand has put fighter after fighter to sleep. His timing and devastating power are his best attributes. Lewis has been the underdog in numerous fights and has prevailed with flashy finishes. There is risk rostering Lewis, but his $7,000 price tag on DraftKings could easily pay off nicely with a first-round finish. Expect Lewis to look to land his powerful right hand early and often in hopes of ending Spivak’s winning streak. Stokastic gives Lewis 36.2% win odds and a 31.9% chance for a knockout.
