If interested in wagering on any bouts for this fight card, all betting lines will be made available to you at Several Bookmakers. My Over/Under Totals are: Light Heavyweight bout: Glover Teixeira (-220) vs Jared Cannonier (+180) Gabe’s Thoughts: I think the two most likely outcomes to this 205-pound contest are Teixeira winning by submission and Cannonier winning by T/KO and I think both of those outcomes are more likely to come within the first seven and a half minutes of action than not. I think the Total of Under 1.5 rounds at -105 is the play to make here. As for my official pick, I have been going back and forth. I initially felt confident in Cannonier because I felt he would have a big size advantage over Teixeira, but after seeing them face off at the press conference, Teixeira appeared to be the bigger fighter so my lean went with him. Gabe’s Call: Teixeira by Submission (arm triangle choke, 3:40 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Under 1.5 rounds (-105) Middleweight bout: Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza (-550) vs Tim Boetsch (+425) Gabe’s Thoughts: This is a fight Jacare should win handily, and normally, I would be all over him. I usually bet against Boetsch and somewhat enjoy fading him. However, I can’t do that this time, even against arguably the most dangerous opponent he has ever faced. Just a weird gut feeling I can’t ignore. Something just won’t allow me to bet against him, so instead I am opting to take the Total of Under 1.5 rounds, as I think Jacare is most likely to win in in the opening stanza. In case “The Barbarian” pulls off the upset, I think this bet will still cash, because I think his best shot of winning is to knock out Souza in the first round. Boetsch is also quite tempting at +425, and again, this is coming from a guy who usually loves betting against him and even bet Rafael Natal against him back at UFC 205. I go back and forth for my official pick, as my brain is saying Jacare but my gut is whispering Boetsch. My gut isn’t always right but I usually end up kicking myself whenever I ignore it. Gabe’s Call: Boetsch by T/KO (punches, 0:43 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Play:¬†Under 1.5 rounds (-145) Click Here to Make a Donation!
