‘Ask Cousin Gabe’ is an article at MMA Oddsbreaker where I answer questions from readers. If you would like to ask me a question, regarding wagering, any upcoming fight cards, or MMA in general, please email it to email@example.com and make sure to include your name and location.
Do you agree with the line movement against OSP? -Max, Chicago, IL
Absolutely not. I think this is OSP’s fight to lose, so unless there’s some injury bettors know about, I wouldn’t fade him here. I happen to like this matchup for him, especially in front of his home crowd.
Is AJ McKee a lock? -Rudy, Downey, CA
Any Bellator plays? -Trev, Lawrence, KS
Killing two questions with one stone here: I don’t think McKee is a lock at all in this featherweight contest. I will not be doing a Bellator article this week, but I do think Mazzotta is a live dog. He was +525 at one point but is currently +370 and I see value in that line, as I think he should be +200. That is the only play on this card I see any value in, and the rest of the plays I wouldn’t touch.
Do you still watch TUF? Have you seen the new Redemption season? What do you think? -Joel, Leonardo, NJ
Yes, I have never missed an episode of any season, not including your TUF: Brazil’s, TUF: China’s, etc. There are some good seasons and some awful ones, but as a hardcore fan of this sport, I tune into all of them. I just finished watching the first episode of the new season, and I enjoyed it. I give it a 4/5 and am looking forward to next week’s episode. To predict who wins the season, my picks are James Krause, Jesse Taylor and Ramsey Nijem.
