Five Props that Cashed Big at the TUF 24 Finale

Sara McMannFive Props is a column featured on after every major MMA event that highlights the biggest underdog prop bets to cash out from that card. Here’s five TUF 24 Finale prop bets that cashed big based on the closing odds at Several Bookmakers. 1) Cannonier by Decision (+605) Jared Cannonier scored a big upset victory in his light heavyweight debut with a unanimous decision win over Ion Cutelaba. The pair earned ‘Fight of the Night’ honors for their efforts, as many felt this was the best non-title 205-pound bout in a while. Congratulations are definitely in order to those who bet on “The Killa Gorilla” to take this fight on the judges’ scorecards, as you made out with a whopping +605! 2) McMann by Submission (+739) Sara McMann made it two wins in a row for herself inside the Octagon by taking out Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Alexis Davis with an arm-triangle choke submission in the second round of action, after nearly being submitted herself, only to be saved by the bell in the closing of the first round. Thanks to McMann, those who wagered on her to win this fight by submission cashed out at a massive +739, being the biggest prop to come through on the night. 3) Hall by Decision (+422) Ryan Hall defeated UFC veteran Gray Maynard via unanimous decision on the judges’ scorecards to make it two straight wins for himself inside the Octagon, both wins coming by way of decision for the submission ace. Congratulations are due here to those wise enough to take the decision prop on Hall at +422 rather than the submission prop which most felt was the more likely outcome. 4) Smith by T/KO (+330) Anthony Smith was outgrappled by Elvis Mutapcic to start off the first round, but Mutapcic appeared to be clearly gassed to start off the second. Smith took over the faded middleweight and eventually dropped him with an elbow and followed up with a barrage of punches to earn the TKO stoppage from the refferee, ultimately returning to the win column at 185 pounds. 5) Clark by Decision (+365) Devin Clark picked up his first UFC victory with a unanimous decision nod over Josh Stansbury, and with that, those who wagered on him to do so made out like bandits with +365. A $100 parlay on these five props would have netted $617,266.
