MMA Odds and Ends for Friday: UFC 166 Prelim Prop Bets To Consider

Nate Marquardt Several Bookmakers has opened up a number of interesting prop bets for the UFC 166 card, and for today’s MMA Odds and Ends I’ve decided to recommend five that I think have a good chance of cashing. Without further ado, here they are. Tim Boetsch/CB Dollaway Doesn’t Go The Distance (-140) In the main event of the UFC 166 prelims, Tim Boetsch and CB Dollaway will go to war in a middleweight bout. I actually really like Boetsch to win this fight by T/KO, and the line on him winning inside the distance pays out at +140. But for just a bit of juice, you can bet on the fight ending inside the distance, which means you just need a finish from either guy to cash out here. So that takes into account a fluke Dollaway KO or a slick sub, and that’s why I like it. Hector Lombard/Nate Marquardt Doesn’t Go The Distance (-130) Another intriguing fight at UFC 166 is a welterweight matchup between Hector Lombard and Nate Marquardt. I see Lombard winning the fight by KO, but it’s only +130. So, instead, you might as well bet the fight doesn’t go the distance at -130, and that takes into account the possibility of a Marquardt finish. So I like that for a bet. Jessica Eye/Sarah Kaufman OVER 2.5 rounds (-245) In a women’s bantamweight bout, Jessica Eye and Sarah Kaufman will go toe-to-toe for 15 minutes and likely be in contention for “Fight of the Night” at the end of the night. I think this fight is going to decision, and the OVER 2.5 rounds total is currently available at -245. I think that’s a fair price to pay for it, and I like putting it into a parlay. KJ Noons/George Sotiropoulos Doesn’t Go The Distance (-120) A lightweight bout between KJ Noons and George Sotiropoulos has been scheduled for the UFC 166 prelims, and it’s a fight I don’t see going the distance. I think either Noons gets the KO or Sotiropoulos gets the SUB, so at only -120 for the fight to not go the full three rounds, that’s what I’m eyeing here for a bet. Adlan Amagov/TJ Waldburger Doesn’t Go The Distance (-160) And finally, one of the Facebook fights that I’m eyeing for a bet is the welterweight matchup between Adlan Amagov and TJ Waldburger. Personally, I think this is a pretty tough fight to call as far as picking a side, but there’s one bet here that I really like, and it’s on the fight not going the distance. At only -160, I think this prop is worthy of a straight play, as I see a finish either way here — either an Amagov T/KO or a Waldburger SUB.
