Semi Final Match Ups

April 17, 2018 | FP Strategist

The US Open semi finals take place tomorrow and it is the most crucial time for you and your Fantasy Polo team!

10:30am: Daily Racing Form vs US Polo Assn

Of course Hilario Ulloa as number 1 in the Fantasy ranking is the most obvious pick here if you have the budget for him. Neither of the two highly priced on the US Polo Assn side are worth your pick. Juan Martín Nero is on just 42.42.5 points while Alejandro Novillo Astrada is certainly one to avoid with just 1 point.

Jared Zenni has disappointed in this tournament, he is normally a great bargain where you can pick up some extra points for a small pricetag, but now it is worth spending the extra $4k to get Mariano Obregon who has an average/ match score of 14.63. From this match I would stay clear of anyone else as your budget is better spent in the second match.

4pm: Valiente vs Flexjet

Both Gonzalo and and Nicolas Pieres are strong picks in this match up ranked 3rd and 4th respectively however it is worth bearing in mind that they will be facing the tough Valiente side and may not make you as many points as normal. I would still consider them over the big guns from the Valiente side Adolfo Cambiaso and Facundo Pieres however, who have not proven themselves to be big point scorers in this tournament. Tommy Beresford is my Top Pick for this match up as he is only $19k, but has been earning solid scores in each match!
