MMA oddsmaker Nick Kalikas (@FightOdds) recently moved to Las Vegas and joined the UFC On the Line betting crew on UFC Fight Pass, which means he now has access to in-person fight wagers before upcoming mixed martial arts events.
As part of a new series here on MMAOddsBreaker.com, Kalikas will share his pre-event bets whenever he finds good value in a line, regardless of what side.
Here’s Kalikas’ most recent wager.
Reyes is battling UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones in the main event of UFC 247 this weekend. Here’s Kalikas’ brief justification for his wager.
“Jon Jones hasn’t been fighting at the level we’ve expected of him in his last four or five fights. Reyes is a surging, hungry contender with finishing ability and confidence. I expect the line to close with Reyes less than +300 so if you’re getting anything better than +300, there should be some value on his side. At +375, I couldn’t pass it up.”
Kalikas would like to thank the Westgate Superbook for their support of combat sports betting and for allowing him to record and post his pre-fight wagers. Kalikas recommends Westgate for all sports betting when visiting Las Vegas.
