If you have any questions for the upcoming UFC 209 fight card, please shoot them through! “FEDOR!!! Think he gets it done? Worth betting?” -Earl, LA, CA The GOAT? I certainly think he has a great chance, though the majority are confident that the outcome of the bout will be Mitrione by T/KO. I won’t argue that they are wrong, but I think it is equally or more likely that Fedor wins, as I think he is capable of winning this fight by T/KO or submission, whereas Mitrione can only win by knockout. If the Russian comes in with a game plan, he will take this fight to the mat early and get a submission. As far as a wager is concerned, I can’t blame you for playing Fedor at slight dog odds, but I do favor the Total of Under 1.5 rounds here, because regardless of who gets his hand raised, I think the win will come in the opening round of action. “Who do you think has the best value on the Canada card? -Wes, Memphis, TN Alex Ricci (+355) – Contrary to popular opinion, I think he should be a -160 betting favorite. Aiemann Zahabi (-235) – I think he should be a -700 betting favorite. Zahabi by Submission (+440) – I think this is the most likely outcome to this bout. Travis Browne (-110) – I think he should be a -200 betting favorite. Browne by Submission (+950) – I think this is the most likely outcome to this main event bout. McMann/Mazany Under 2.5 rounds (+160) – I think this line should be at least -180. Marshman by Decision (+925) and Submission (+875) – I think he is equally likely to win by submission or decision as he is by T/KO, and the T/KO prop is at +270. Meerschaert by T/KO (+332) – I think this is the most likely outcome to this bout. I may have given you more than you bargained for, ha. I inititially intended on just saying Ricci, but I couldn’t stop myself from continuing… Cezar Ferreira (-120) – I think he should be a -230 betting favorite. “Thanks for that big payday last week! I wish I had bet the entire recommended amount, I only put up half… Still a big come-up, so I’m all smiles! Do you have another 5-teamer for me?” -Stan, Las Vegas, NV You’re welcome! I’ll do you one better, here’s a six teamer this week: Ferreira (-125) Tucker (-165) Ponzinibbio (-390) Zahabi (-245) Esparza (-275) Meerschaert (-310) 1.35u to win 11.1u If you really feel like gambling, add underdogs Marshman and Ricci to that to make it an eight teamer; and one in each for a pair of seven teamers. You’re up 10u from last week, so it can’t hurt to try! All of my content and plays are free. Your support is greatly appreciated.
