Over/Under Totals for UFC 206

cirkunovUFC 206: Holloway vs Pettis Date: December 10, 2016 Arena: Air Canada Centre City: Toronto, Ontario, Canada The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heads to Toronto, Ontario, Canada for the fifth time in promotional history with UFC 206: Holloway vs Pettis. The 12-fight card is set to get going with Fight Pass prelims at 6:30pm ET, and preliminary action will continue on FOX Sports 1 at 8pm, with the main card getting underway on Pay Per View at 10pm. If interested in wagering on any bouts for this fight card, all betting lines will be made available at 5Dimes Sportsbook. My Over/Under Totals are: Welterweight bout: Jordan Mein (-155) vs Emil Meek (+135) Gabe’s Thoughts: Jordan Mein is back! The UFC signs Meek to face him, after Meek scored a first round knockout of Rousimar Palhares in Europe. Mein versus Meek should be an excellent match-up in the UFC’s 170-pound division, and I can see both fighters having a bright future inside the Octagon. Mein needed a much needed break, and he called it a “retirement” but he is back and I expect him to look great, because I don’t think he would make a comeback if he was not feeling incredible. I think this is a close fight, but I do lean towards Mein getting his hand raised. I agree with the current betting odds for this contest, so I don’t see enough value on Mein to pull the trigger on a play. That said, I do think the Total of Under 1.5 rounds at -120 holds some value, as I think both welterweights are likely to win this fight within seven and a half minutes of action than any other way. I think it’s the same as playing Mein, except you get the insurance of still winning in case Meek pulls it off. Gabe’s Call: Mein by T/KO (strikes, 2:01 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Under 1.5 rounds (-120) 2.4u to win 2u Light Heavyweight bout: Misha Cirkunov (-130) vs Nikita Krylov (+110) Gabe’s Thoughts: This is an excellent match-up in the UFC’s 205-pound division and one of the most highly anticipated fights on the entire card. Both light heavyweights are red hot inside the Octagon and will be looking to roll with another impressive victory in this contest. I agree with the current betting odds in that this is a very close fight that I slightly favor Cirkunov in. I would not fault anyone for playing Cirkunov at his current price of -130, however I personally like the Total of Under 1.5 rounds in this fight, as I think both fighters have a good chance of ending this fight within seven and a half minutes of action. Krylov likes to go for the kill from the opening bell, and against an opponent who is a decent step up in competition, that could end up costing him. Gabe’s Call: Cirkunov by Submission (guillotine choke, 3:44 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Under 1.5 rounds (-120) 2.4u to win 2u
