Here are my prop plays…
Francis Ngannou (-165) vs. Stipe Miocic (+145)
Ngannou by Submission (+1350) .5u to win 6.75u
I favor a T/KO finish by Ngannou in this contest, but I think a submission is a very likely outcome, as well. Miocic will be looking to wrestle in this bout, and in doing so, I think he could get caught in a submission, most likely a guillotine choke.
Gian Villante (-140) vs. Francimar Barroso (+130)
Villante in Round One (+445) .45u to win 2u
I think this is a good matchup for Villante and I like his chances of finishing it early. At +445, I think it’s worth a play.
Rob Font (-106) vs. Thomas Almeida (-104)
Almeida by T/KO (+279) .7u to win 1.95u
Almeida in Round One (+435) .45u to win 1.95u
Almeida by Submission (+850) .2u to win 1.7u
In short, I favor Almeida in this contest and I see value in these betting lines.
Alexandre Pantoja (-120) vs. Dustin Ortiz (+110)
Pantoja by Submission (+416) .65u to win 2.7u
I like Pantoja in this spot, and while I favor him to get the job done on the judges’ scorecards, I think a submission victory is likely as well and certainly worth a play at +416.
Julio Arce (-130) vs. Dan Ige (+120)
Arce by T/KO (+400) 1 to win 4u
Putting it simply, I believe Arce has a big striking advantage in this contest and I see him finding success in keeping the fight standing and out striking Ige, likely for a T/KO stoppage.
