    This got me up a few bucks, so naturally I am going big on Volkov by KO +121 for an amount that will make me hate myself when it loses.

    I agree, one of my friends who is more casual than I texted saying it was a bad card, I was like uh what dude? Lots of great fights, good finishes.

    He did bet on Valiev/Day to finish ITD and also Guida/Johnson and I was just flabbergasted considering that Valiev isn't a big time finisher despite being a favorite and Guida made a reputation by grinding out long fights.

    What the fuck is Jorge doing? Welter is easily the lamest division in the UFC,

    Yea, I'm not sure what Jorge is doing here unless he knows fighting Colby is going to be a problem for him? idk, that doesn't really make sense either because I thought I read where he's been training for Colby for awhile now.

    Main card stinks. Usman Burns will be nice and has a great story but why would anyone pay for the rest?

    Dk card is kind of weird to me... Feel like doubling up main event may be optimal, which never feels good. Did it in 5/79 lineups.

    With the new scoring I don't think you can double up anymore. I'm almost done with my lineups, I'll post the picks in a minute.

    O yeah I expect Usman 120+ but maybe Burns can score 60+ if it goes to a decision. Heinisch is 200 more with a lower floor iyam, Guys cheaper than him... I don't expect much from Kelleher, maybe Lima surprises people, Hernandez don't want to get over exposed there either.

    My favorite plays:

    Usman by decision
    Vieira by submission
    Viana 1st round sub
    Barber ITD
    Pitolo by KO (have some exposure to Marquez, he's also a finisher)
    Rowe by KO (also have some exposure to Green, they both finish 100% of their wins and the fight is the 2nd most likely to not go the distance)

    Other plays that I don't love as much:

    Simon by decision (lots of takedowns)
    Loved Maverick ITD, but that's no more
    Heinisch by decision (probably a couple of takedowns, other than that I think these two dance around each other for 3 rounds)
    Ewell has an 8" reach advantage but has the 10th best finish % on this card, so I'm guessing he fights behind his jab and wins a decision
    Muhammad by decision. He's a decision machine and Lima fucking sucks, so I imagine he grinds on him for 3 rounds.

    Why are you so high on Gastelum? Quality of opponents vs Heinisch quality of opponents?
