Moises might be favored on the money line, but his very low activity rates make for bad DFS usage (83 DFS points in his last two wins, 46.9 per fight overall). That leaves the value on Turner at well-below par, which opens you up not only to take some favorites, but also benefit from his 63.8 DFS points in four career UFC fights in a battle he can still very much win.
