Mike’s MMA Picks Betting Recap for UFC Vegas 60: Death, taxes, Mike’s bets win again

As per usual, Mike’s MMA Picks slayed it again this past weekend for UFC Vegas 60, going 5-0 on his bets for a hefty +3.66 unit profit.

Mike adds more bets as the fights get closer, so his subscribers get more value due to line movement compared to single event package purchasers. He invests up to 20 hours of labor each week watching fights, doing the fighter research and finding a betting edge so you don’t have to.

Mike is up over 36 units this year and over 115 units lifetime.

For anyone interested in taking a shot on Mike’s bets, he currently has a combo event package for Friday’s Bellator 285 and next weekend’s UFC Dublin available. Mike also has a 1-month subscription available, which would cover any plays given out through September and October. You also can buy his single event packages from his premium bets page.

Here’s what his subscribers saw before fight night this past weekend:


Risking 2U on Pyfer-Amedovski UNDER 2.5 rounds -300

Risking 0.5U on Pyfer-Amedovski UNDER 1.5 rounds -175

Joe Pyfer, 25yo, is a chaotic fighter and a finisher by nature. The young man’s confidence is high. He will likely put the pedal to the metal here vs a 34 year-old opponent in Amedovski who is on a massive skid. Amedovski throws hard, and can be dangerous at times, though has a propensity to gas out, and his chin is an issue. Under the bright lights at the Apex, I expect one of these fighters to be finished early, and it will likely be Amedovski. This matchup screams finish. We got in on
the under 1.5 rounds at -175 and under 2.5 rounds at -300.

Risking 1.5U on the Rodrigues-Njokuani fight doesn’t go the distance prop at -225

Gregory Rodrigues has no qualms entering the fire and completely emptying his tank vs anyone. He’s a fan friendly, violent fighter. Chidi Njokuani has the ability to KO anyone, and is vulnerable to being submitted. Njokuani has a 4-inch reach advantage here. Both fighters are finishing machines, and I like the fight doesn’t go the distance number at -225.

Risking 1.5U on Andre Fili at -120.

Andre Fili, 21-9, 32yo, takes on Bill Algeo, 16-6, 33yo, in a featherweight fight at UFC Vegas 60. We have recency bias baked into this current line, as Fili is coming off of getting clipped and finished in under a minute vs Joanderson Brito. Andre Fili is the more technical striker in this matchup with a 1” reach advantage, and has the ability to dictate where this fight takes place. Both of these combatants are lanky and long for the weight and possess similar attributes. Algeo is a reactive fighter who relies on volume and his opponent gassing out. I do not question Fili’s cardio. Look for Fili to be the one landing takedowns with the cleaner striking, and walking away with the victory here. At -120, Fili is the play.

Risking 1.5U on Cory Sandhagen -190.

Cory Sandhagen, 14-4, 30yo, returns to action vs Yadong Song, 19-6-1, 24yo, in a bantamweight bout at UFC Vegas 60. The fact that this matchup is scheduled for 5 rounds is important here, as Sandhagen is the longer fighter with higher volume and better cardio down the stretch. I do not discount Yadong’s power. He is a threat to land finishing strikes early, though I favor Sandhagen’s fight IQ and cerebral approach. The play is Sandhagen, and we got in at -190.
