Prop Plays for UFC 209

David TeymurUFC 209 Date: March 4, 2017 Arena: T-Mobile Arena City: Las Vegas, NV The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is back at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV this Saturday night (March 4, 2017) with UFC 209: Woodley vs. Thompson II. The action-packed fight card is stacked with 11 scheduled bouts that are set to kick off with preliminary action on UFC Fight Pass at 6:45 p.m. ET. Preliminary action will then continue on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m., with the main card getting underway at 10 p.m. on Pay-Per-View. If interested in wagering on any bouts for this fight card, all betting lines will be made available to you at Several Bookmakers. Here are my prop plays: Rashad Evans (-220) vs. Daniel Kelly (+200) Kelly in Round One (+1175) Kelly by T/KO (+770) I think Evans’ chin is a real concern, especially now that he’s dropping down to the UFC’s 185-pound division. Kelly is not a technical striker or knockout artist by any means, but I think Evans may be at the point where a clean shot by just about anybody will end his night. Lando Vannata (-375) vs. David Teymur (+335) Teymur +3.5 (+145) I’m actually picking Teymur outright to win this fight in a big upset. Should he come up short on the judges’ scorecards, I think he will have enough to at least win one round. I could also see this being a bout he deserves to win but loses a split decision, but I hope that does not happen, because I really like him straight up too, especially now that he’s climbed up to +335. Alistair Overeem (-125) vs. Mark Hunt (+115) Overeem by Decision (+318) I think this is the most likely outcome to this heavyweight contest. I could see Overeem out-wrestling Hunt for the majority of three rounds to pick up a unanimous nod, and I could also see him getting on his bicycle and out-pointing Hunt on the feet. I think this is Overeem’s fight to lose, and I see him getting it done on the cards. Marcin Tybura (-155) vs. Luis Henrique (+145) Henrique by Decision (+385) In short, I think this is the most likely outcome to this heavyweight contest and see value in the line. Henrique is +385 by decision and +145 straight up, and I think that in victory, he wins this fight on the judges’ scorecards more often than not. Luke Sanders (-125) vs.Li Iuri Alcantara (+115) Sanders by Submission (+1050) Simply a value play. Alcantara is by no means easy to submit, but I could see a scenario where Sanders hurts him on the feet and then chokes him out. Click Here to Make a Donation!
