Jimmy “The Brute” Crute is the type of fighter who can score in a bunch of different ways. He lands on average 4.08 strikes per minute as well as lands 4.63 takedowns per fight. He is facing a guy in Bukauskas who does have a 100% takedown defense, but we believe that number is really not as good as it seems, and that Crute will be able to get him down. Bukauskas also eats 4.6 strikes per minute and we believe both of these factors together will lead to Crute as a high-scoring option. Whether he gets the finish or just takes him down for the ground-and-pound, he is someone that you want in your lineup. In three out of Crutes last four fights, he has scored 95.5 or higher, including 143 in his last fight. Lock Jimmy Crute into all formats for both DraftKings and FanDuel.
