Our picks are heading over to the American Airlines Center this Saturday to see if all the Miocic prognosticators are right as they have him favored by 72% to 28% over at Tapology while the oddsmakers have him coming in at a modest -140. Or maybe, just maybe, Santos still has whatever juju that got it done for him the first time. They have a recent common opponent in Overeem who beat Santos (KO/TKO) and lost to Miocic (KO/TKO) just 9 months later. Miocic has an awesome record since they last met going 4 for 4 KO/TKOs and 3 of them in the first round. With stats like that we have to go with Miocic. The DraftKings contests for UFC 211 kick off at 4 pm on Saturday so get your DFS MMA Lineups in by then.
If you have the time you might want to watch the first fight between these two. Below is the full fight video

This week our DFS Premium Picks and Sleeper Picks are moving over to the Morgado Golf & Country Club in Portimao, Portugal for the 2017 Portuguese Open. Thomas Bjørn took top honors the last time this tournament was played on the European Tour, which was a whopping 7 years ago, so previous history at this tournament should provide very little weight when choosing your DFS EURO-Golf picks this week. This one’s going to be a bit of a crap shoot as there are many, seemingly casual, European Tour players out there. Good ‘luck’.
Our DraftKings Fantasy EURO-Golf Picks are normally ready by Monday Evening or Tuesday on the weeks that DraftKings offers Fantasy EURO-Golf competitions.
Our FanDuel Golf Picks are normally ready by Monday Evening or Tuesday at the latest on the weeks that FanDuel offers Fantasy Golf competitions. We provide 5 Fantasy Golf picks for Rounds 1-2 and 5 Fantasy Golf picks for Rounds 3-4.
Our DraftKings Fantasy Golf Picks are normally ready by Tuesday mornings on the weeks that DraftKings offers Fantasy PGA competitions.
Our Fantasy Golf Premium and Sleeper Picks for DraftKings DFS PGA are heading over to the PGA Tour Headquarters at TPC Sawgrass this week for THE PLAYERS Championship. The 2016 champ was Jason Day, 2015 – Rickie Fowler, 2014 – Martin Kaymer & 2013 – Tiger Woods. I have included links below to the leaderboards from the last 4 ‘PLAYER Championships’. Sergio Garcia is my top pick this week. Sergio has been hanging around THE PLAYERS leaderboard for 3 of the past 4 years with a 2nd, a 3rd, and an 8th and with him snagging his first major just one short month ago in The Masters, we expect that his momentum, history and confidence at TPC Sawgrass will carry him well this weekend. Another one to keep an eye on when your finalizing your picks is Rory Mcllroy. Good showing the past 4 years with a 12th, an 8th, a 6th and an 8th respectively. Rory is my second choice. Rounding out my top three premium picks has to be 2017 Mr. Steady – Dustin Johnson. He looked like he was coming back to earth after a second round 75 this past weekend, but he shot lights out in the 3rd and 4th rounds, on a PGA course making it’s debut to boot, to pull out a second place. Brian Harman has to be commended after only giving up one shot to a charging Dustin on the final day to take the win.
Our Fantasy NASCAR picks are heading over to the Geico 500 which is hosted by the longest track on the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, the Talladega Superspeedway in Lincoln, Alabama. The 2.66 mile high banked oval requires the use of restrictor plates to keep the speeds, which can get up over 235 miles an hour, under control. Hendricks Motorsports is the king team here with 7 wins in the past 16 years while Chevrolet has dominated the manufacturer win column with 19. Brad Keselowski definitely will be my favorite going into this Sunday having won last Sunday’s Toyota Owners 400 as well as taking the checkered flag at Talladega 4 times in the past 8 years (click here), not to mention that he’s on Team Penske who have taken the last 3 and 4 out of the last 5 races at Talledega (click here).
MOST WINS BY MANUFACTURER – Chevrolet with 19 wins
